In doing so, Sean McDermott’s Buffalo Bills confirmed their spot in the AFC Championship game for the first time since 1994.

He finished the regular season throwing for 4,500+ yards and 37 passing TDs. He was complemented by summer recruit Stefon Diggs, who has enjoyed a terrific debut year in Buffalo himself.

Can Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs lead Buffalo Bills to the Super Bowl?

Adam Schein made an appearance on CBS Network ahead of Sunday’s AFC Championship Game between the Chiefs and Bills.

The revered NFL analyst was asked to comment on the upcoming game. But it was clear that he was already biased towards one team.

“Stefon Diggs and Josh Allen are going to lead the Buffalo Bills to the Super Bowl. Obviously, Patrick Mahomes playing is huge.

“But let me tell you something, Josh Allen’s the best quarterback on the field on Sunday, Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs, they had a better combination in connection this season.

“When you compare and contrast it to Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill…. What Josh Allen has done this postseason, it’s been next level,” Schein said earlier today.
