ORCHARD PARK, NEW YORK - JANUARY 21: Josh Allen #17 of the Buffalo Bills runs off the field after being defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Playoff game at Highmark Stadium on January 21, 2024 in Orchard Park, New York.

Good morning, gang!  Davey mac here with a fresh Sports Report for ya!  And we’re getting right into it as we had all kinds of awesome NFL action over the weekend!

Starting with last night…where the Chiefs took down the Bills in another classic…27 to 24.  Another back-and-forth game where there were plenty of lead changes…ultimately…after Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs scored the go-ahead touchdown in the 4th quarter…Josh Allen and the Bills worked their way down the field…but the Buffalo kicker Tyler Bass missed a 44-yard field goal that would have tied the game and that was that.  Heartbreaking loss for the Bills.  For Mahomes, another amazing stat for his Hall Of Fame resume…this will be his 6th straight Conference Championship game he’s in.  Amazing.

ORCHARD PARK, NEW YORK – JANUARY 21: Patrick Mahomes #15 of the Kansas City Chiefs hugs Josh Allen #17 of the Buffalo Bills after the AFC Divisional Playoff game at Highmark Stadium on January 21, 2024 in Orchard Park, New York.

 

That brings me to my next point.  With the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs both breaking their respective championship droughts…are the Bills the most cursed team in all of Sports?  I mean…you’ve also had the New York Rangers break their curse in the ’90’s; the Texas Rangers wining their first World Series last year; and even the Lions are a game away from the Super Bowl.  But the Bills just can’t catch a break.  Four straight Super Bowl appearances in the ’90’s and yet not one win in those games.  And of course, Scott Norwood: wide right.

 

And not to be funny here…but let’s also admit that O.J. Simpson, one of the greatest players in Bills franchise history…well…we all know the story with O.J.

O.J. Simpson "Road Rage"

395562 05: Former NFL star O.J. Simpson attends court on the first day of jury selection October 9, 2001 at a Dade County courtroom in Miami, FL. Simpson, who was acquitted in 1994 in the murders of his ex-wife and her friend, is on trial for allegedly attacking a motorist in the Miami suburb of Kendall, Florida in December of 2000. If found guilty, Simpson could face up to 16 years in prison.

 

And now you can add this latest run of horrible Bills luck as they just can’t make that one play or catch that one break to beat the Chiefs in the NFL Playoffs.  Man…my sympathies go out to Bills fans out there.  It’s been a brutal 40 years or so.  Condolences.  I’m Davey Mac…now on to the rest of the Sports Report!
