Amid notable injury problems in the running back position throughout the season, the Bills’ offensive coordinator Brian Daboll called for Allen to take the lead on fouling. Allen ended the regular season with career-highs in passes per game (38.0) and passes per game (7.18). The fourth-year passer has certainly been challenged compared to the regular season, as he has totaled 44 touchdowns in 17 games played.
Before the second confrontation with Allen, Mahomes touch Allen played firmly in the off-season, where he admitted that the Chiefs and Bills could face many more times in January for years to come.
“Yes, he’s an excellent player,” Mahomes said at Wednesday’s press conference. “I actually know him a little bit off the pitch too, great guy. “They put a lot of things on his shoulders, and he will take advantage of that opportunity. He can run the ball, he can throw the ball, he has the arm strength to throw it anywhere on the pitch and he makes great decisions.
“We’ll probably play against them a lot of times, it’s going to be a great competition and it’s definitely a big challenge for us as a team to compete against them.”
While Mahomes went away with a win over the Bills in last season’s AFC Championship game, Allen avenged the regular-season loss, leading Buffalo to a crucial regular-season win in Week 5.
The franchise’s two quarterback quarterbacks are currently gearing up for another highly anticipated showdown, as the Chiefs and Bills will go head to head for a spot in next week’s AFC Championship match.
