Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes will battle for the second straight postseason, as the Bills and Chiefs are set to kickoff this Sunday night. Last year, the Kansas Chiefs defeated the Bills in the AFC Championship. Their QB Patrick Mahomes had 325 passing yards and three touchdowns in that game.
The Bills avenged that loss by blowing out the Chiefs on the road during the 2021 regular season. Allen completed 15-of-26 passes for 315 yards and three touchdowns. He also had 59 yards and a score on the ground.
With this matchup a little over 24 hours away, ESPN’s Randy Moss made a bold prediction about this Bills-Chiefs rivalry. The legendary wideout believes the next few years of watching Allen and Mahomes duel on the gridiron could mirror what Tom Brady and Peyton Manning did.
“Could this be, and I don’t mean this as a joke, the next Brady-Manning for over the next 10 years? Could this be this type of matchup? Because it’s set up that way,” Moss said on NFL Countdown. The rest of the crew agreed with Moss’ take on Allen and Mahomes.

Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes certainly have the talent to consistently lead their respective teams to the playoffs. That means we could be in store for a few more intense meetings between the Chiefs and Bills.
