Coach Sean McDermott also deserves credit for putting together a complementary group of players who are performing on a consistent basis, week-in and week-out.

En route to the AFC Championship Game, the bills have already beaten Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens in the NFL Playoffs. Next up are defending champions, Kansas City Chiefs.

Can the Josh Allen-led Buffalo Bills pull off an upset on Sunday?

Speaking on today’s segment of First Things First, outspoken American talk show personality, Nick Wright had some words of advice for Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills.

He said, “Buffalo sling it, baby…This whole ‘let’s slow the Chiefs down’ that’s been everyone’s strategy for three years. One team has successfully done it. The Colts midway through last year when Patrick Mahomes was hurt and Tyreek killed it in play.

“Mahomes has only lost nine times since Texas Tech…they all have something in common except for the Colts loss. You know how you beat him? Go score 35. People aren’t beating this team 21-14.”

“So listen, Josh, you’re the MVP. You’re the best young quarterback. You have the best offense….Forget Mahomes and Hill, It’s Alan and Diggs.

“You’ve got the guy to do it. You’ve got the league MVP, I was told, so go to Arrowhead and go score,” Wright announced on the show.

A potential Allen vs Mahomes showdown is precisely what NFL fans would love to watch on a cold Sunday night. But it all depends on whether he clears the 5-step concussion protocol put in place by league officials.
