Many believe Sunday’s game between the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs could be an AFC Championship preview. The Chiefs topped Josh Allen and the Bills in last year’s AFC final to reach the Super Bowl.
Throw in Sunday Night Football, and the stakes feel pretty high. You can argue they’re higher for the Chiefs—the Super Bowl champs two years ago—who are 2-2 and a game behind every other AFC West team right now. The Bills, meanwhile, are 3-1 in the weak AFC East, where every other team is just 1-3.
Allen, an MVP candidate a year ago, is tamping down the hype a bit, though. To him, this remains “Week Five.”
“That’s all it is, it’s Week 5,” he told the Buffalo Bills website. “I would assume that they’re thinking the same thing. Everybody wants to make this big deal about the AFC Championship rematch, and I get that’s what it is. But it’s a new year and this team’s different than last year and their team’s different than last year.”

Josh Allen understands why everyone is hyping up this rematch between the Chiefs and Bills, and he and Patrick Mahomes. Still, he’s not going to let it get to him.
“That’s our job, Allen said. “We’re in the entertainment business, that’s the narrative that sticks with it and as players, we understand that. But like I alluded to earlier, it’s Week 5. Whether we win or lose, we’re not going to let this game define who we are. We’re going to have to keep learning and keep growing as the season goes on. But it is the biggest game because it’s the next one. All of our attention is focused on this one.”
The Bills’ trip to face the Kansas City Chiefs kicks off at 8:20 p.m. ET on Sunday night.
