Chiefs vs Bills preview

We've spent two years willing it to materialise, and the greatest game in NFL playoff history at long last gets its sequel today. The Chiefs take on the Bills at a freezing Highmark Stadium, and incredibly, considering he's already got 11 of them under his belt, this will be the first time Patrick Mahomes plays an AFC playoff game on the road.

The head-to-head between Mahomes and Josh Allen is technically tied at 3-3, though the Chiefs winning both of their previous playoff encounters means it certainly doesn't feel that way. On form alone though, most would agree that the Bills look formidable and the reigning champions look vulnerable, though it's never quite as simple as that.

First off, Andy Reid's men have had the privilege of two extra rest days. Second, Buffalo without several key players, including linebackers Terrell Bernard and Baylon Spector. Third, Mahomes makes the extraordinary look routine in the postseason.

13 seconds is all he needed to flip a nailed-on Bills victory on its head two years ago, and if Buffalo don't exorcise that demon now, perhaps they never will. Allen was at his imperious best against Pittsburgh, that 52-yard touchdown run going down as an instant piece of NFL lore, and his ability to just let loose could prove key against a defense that dominates the air but struggles on the ground.

The winning team will set up a clash with the No.1-seeded Ravens next weekend. Follow our guide on how to watch Chiefs vs Bills wherever you are and live stream NFL games throughout the postseason.

How to watch Chiefs vs Bills from outside your country

We've set out how you can live stream Chiefs vs Bills in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away travelling for pleasure or for work, you probably won't be able to tune in like you normally would at home.

You can get around these digital borders by using one of the best VPNs, which can also offer robust protection from cybercriminals and government snooping. They're really easy to use too.
