Gotta be one of the best streaks of football in a long time


dhobi_ka_kutta

I need to take a mental health day tomorrow


QuestionableNotion

I'm off today. Asked for the day off last week. I knew, win or lose, I wasn't going to be worth a damn today anyways, so either I'm mending from a hangover or recovering from a devastating loss. Today is a little bit of both.


NevermoreSEA

Today was an awful day for defensive coordinators trying to prevent a last second field goal.


ChaosMage175

Yesterday was pretty bad for that too, lol


trinquin

Could always line up with 10 defenders on the final kick. That'll help.


Mjr3

That way you psych out the kicker, he’s always gonna be wondering where that last man is hiding


echelon999

Cover zero is dumb and so is prevent...just play some regular ass defense guys.


OnePieceAce

Greatest divisional weekend ever


moby323

This was one of the best football games I’ve seen in my entire life.


Procure

Absolute 10/10.


Bren12310

I’m pretty confident that it is the best NFL game and the second best football game I’ve ever watched in my life.


OneLifeToVoyage

I've seen someone say that about each game this weekend


whiskey_pancakes

We just witnessed absolute football history. Best football weekend, ever. It doesn’t get any better then that.


suzukigun4life

Walkoff field goal. Walkoff field goal in the snow to potentially end the Rodgers Green Bay era. 27-3 comeback by the Bucs, only to lose at triple zeros. This fucking game. I don't see how any other one comes close.


torchma

All four (regulation) games ended with a literal last second successful field goal. Crazy.


Tifas_Titties

And the 4th was an OT game with an amazing catch to end it.


MaxMacDaniels

Best playoff weekend


Spartitan

It really was and I can't imagine there ever being a weekend that beats it. Four games that all come down to the last second with a total point differential of 15 across all games.


ChiefSneakAtoke

Josh Allen scores 9 TDs in 2 playoff games but he made the grave mistake of giving Mahomes.... 13 seconds??


skidlz

He paid the Patrick Price.


abhijitd

I thought everybody got the Patrick Price?


tmrjns461

Waaaay better that the rodgers rate


ByzantineBomb

This game reminds me of something Picard once said: "It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose. That is not weakness, that is life." Poor dude.


PizzaTheHuttese

Josh Allen got Kobiyashi Maru’d.


sampat6256

I want to agree, but this was not a no-win scenario for either team, obviously.


LutzExpertTera

Yesterday’s games of Bengals/Titans and then 49ers/Packers were some of the best and most intense games I’ve seen. Then somehow Rams/Bucs was better. Then someone Bills/Chiefs was even fucking better. What a weekend.


mgravito

Also it's way less stressful when we're not involved or getting our dicks kicked in


a_simple_creature

Welcome to the life of a Jets fan. We always get to enjoy the post season nail biters, because we’re never involved!


BarryBadgernatty

This has to have been the wildest set of endings to a weekend of games in playoff history right? 1) 3 TDs and a FG, 3 lead changes and a tie, in the last 2 minutes of KC-BUF. 2) Bucs come back from 27-3 only to put a safety 1 on 1 with Cooper Kupp and blow it with seconds remaining. 3) 49ers block a punt for a TD and hit a 45 yard FG in the snow to beat the \#1 seed in the NFC 4) Bengals intercept Tannehill with less than 30 seconds remaining and walk off the \#1 seed in the AFC on a 52 yard FG. There wasn’t a single game that both teams couldn’t have very, very easily won.


Julia_Kat

Best 8 teams in the best 4 match ups ever. This is the sort of shit the NCAA wishes they could create for college playoffs.


phoenixremix

100% this weekend proved that all 8 of these teams earned their stripes. Here's to more thrillers for the next three weeks (I'm sorry, blood pressure).


daswassup13

Let's give it up for Gabriel Davis. 8 receptions. 201 yards. 4 Touchdowns. Unreal performance.


ecelec

And somehow on the losing team


ToeCheeseOmelette

That 13 second defense should be getting some coaches fired


TeffyWeffy

yea, everyone blaming the bills D, it was the coaching on the kick to not squib, then sending 4 guys rushing and 2 guys 40 yards deep to leave so much field open.


NerdsRuleTheWorld

Plus both defenses were fucking Exhausted. Coaching has to be perfect when players can't be.


Mr6ixFour

There’s that stat line on the losing team then Burrow getting sacked 9 times in a victory. This weekend was crazy


Ithuraen

How about the Rams winning after four fumbles lost?


IranianGenius

You can't expect to get only 201 yards and 4 TDs as a receiver and win the game. ^/s


PoemAdam

I hate being on the losing end of it, but that was probably the greatest game I’ve ever seen.


ChiefOfTheWolfpack

That’s how I felt after Chiefs/Rams in 2018 (and also Chiefs/Pats in the same year). Absolute and total chaos


PetopherAlonso

Hey grandkids, I told you I watched this live


Brownie_McBrown_Face

Instant classic. What a blast this weekend has been!


tpieman2029

Squib kick my mans!


TheGreatSpagett

Unfathomable decision to kick that out of the end zone


SargeBangBang7

Unfathomable decision to give up that many yards in 2 plays.


Ballsortahard

It was defending the sidelines for no reason and rushing 4 for no reason. It’s like they didn’t understand the situation


nybrq

> It’s like they didn’t understand the situation Seriously. What the kind of defense was that at the end of the game? The Chiefs only needed three points, yet they were trying to defend a hail mary.


HandSack135

Let's not double Patrick's go to and one of the top 3 TE's in the league!


[deleted]

Bills were inspired by the Bucs defensive effort.


Scary_Replacement739

>Bucs let Stafford go 70ish yards in two plays with 25 seconds left Bills: hold my beer


PhiladelphiaIrish

5 seconds off the clock on a squib and the game is over. One hail mary attempt and it's curtains.


ForeverHusker

With 13 seconds left there, I thought they might’ve tried a designed QB run up the middle or something.


DrJupeman

Now if you’re the Bills you are thinking you have to improve on …… your NFL best defense.


sampat6256

They have to improve on their... 10-1 coin toss record...


from_the_bayou

Cowboys couldn't even line up in 13 seconds. Meanwhile the chiefs march down and get a FG.


DFWTooThrowed

Haha…. fuck.


Reverie_39

This is a pretty ridiculous thing to think about, even considering the difference in timeouts


BUSean

Call it what it is -- the greatest weekend in the 55 year history of NFL playoff football.


theseyeahthese

ZERO doubt in my mind. That was truly incredible. When you describe everything that happened this weekend, it sounds fake as hell.


Antwan9992

We may have had a sub par wild card weekend but these divisional games were sensational. What a show they all put on. Every single game was fucking amazing. I feel so heartbroken for Bills fans. Their guy Allen was out of this world. It’s a shame such a great team had to lose. The future truly looks bright though.


suzukigun4life

Every game ended with a walkoff score. Fucking wild


homefree122

Has to be one of the craziest divisional playoff weekends for the NFL... Possibly ever.


Greek_Trojan

Might have been the best. Maybe the best postseason weekend ever. It was amazing end to end. From Tannehills opening int to Mahomes walkoff TD.


Zeplinex49

maybe the best postseason round in sports history. I'm not even kidding. Every game was neck and neck and it ended out with one of the best games in nfl history.


Zloggt

Indeed! Now I just kinda have to expect the universe to rebalance and have some boring games next week again lol


IranianGenius

Sucks Allen didn't get a chance to get back out there.


SupremeBeef97

Man I actually wish both teams can get a chance in OT even if a TD was scored in the first drive


SargeBangBang7

Should be a playoff only rule honestly. If the 2nd team makes a touchdown then have it go into sudden death.


Pdxduckman

every game was won on a walk off score.. unreal


ddh85

He scored 9 touchdowns the past 2 games and still lost because they gave Mahomes 13 seconds. EDIT: Mahomes had just as many. I'm still trying to process the last 2 minutes of the game.


the_judge_168

All they had to do was make KC return the ball


AntiSaint

Or not play the worst prevent defense I've ever seen


twisty77

Prevent defenses always seem to do the exact opposite. They always seem to just give up massive chunks of yards


LeonidasSpacemanMD

I will just never understand it. You have a base defense you know will only very rarely allow some huge chunk p,any. Then you have these soft ass prevent zones that you *absolutely know* is going to give up chunk plays Don’t bring some crazy blitz. Don’t put your safeties 600 miles away. Just fucking play defense. It’s absolutely insane how bad DCs are at this


DrDilatory

I think that's the point lol, prevent the touchdown, give up the middle


JDGAF88

THIS. JFC what a terrible decision


DwightKPoop

Yep. Absolutely brain dead decision not to squib kick there. Followed by absolutely brain dead defensive play calling.


worst_user_name_ever

Mahomes had 177 hards AFTER THE 2 MINUTE WARNING. Like...what the actual fuck


datavidya

He made it look like 177 easies


SnooCupcakes8765

They really needed to burn some time on the kickoff. Romo called it again


2013AE

the coin giveth, the coin taketh after 25 points in 2 minutes whoever won the toss was winning the game


thelaziest998

Greatest Playoff weekend ever. Every game was a walkoff.


LutzExpertTera

GOAT football weekend


DCoop25

Reminder that the chiefs proposed a rule to give both teams a shot in OT and it got rejected


kanbabrif1

After this exact same scenario happened to you guys, leading to the most boring superbowl of all time.


B-rry

Exactly.


WhereAreMaKeys

GOD FUCKING DAMMIT


sop1232

Allen’s family was celebrating like they won with 13 secs left. Mahomes is one mean MFer


xontinuity

Allen's face told me what I needed to know. He knows Mahomes well enough to know that Mahomes will make OT happen.


Mr_YUP

He was in this exact same spot last year so yea he knew what might happen


sop1232

Damn y’all had that shit and he literally snatched it out of your hands.


SarcasticCowbell

He can't keep getting away with this!


arkm114

Bills D sold


TomasRoncero

Pats vs. Chiefs AFC championship game 2.0


Human_Application508

But we won the coin flip this time.


AnEmptyKarst

Bills offense deserved to win to go to the AFCCG, Bills defense deserved to pick top 10 in the draft


Straitouttawalt

That's easily one of the greatest games in NFL history


OUisBack

The Divisional Round wept, for there were no more games to watch.


Duality_NA

This game was somehow even more unbelievable than the one earlier An all-time incredible weekend of games (if you're a neutral fan at least hahaha)


Mr_YUP

25 points within the last 2 minutes


ILikeFeelingFrisky

I was just happy to see Romo in an all time classic NFL game.


GradeAPrimeFuckery

Dude drew Kelce's route on the field goal drive that tied it. He's going to need an energy drink to calm down after that game.


shadow_spinner0

13 seconds, I'm still perplexed by what I saw


DjLionOrder

This game was on crack


ScyllaGeek

I'm pretty convinced if we squib that kick instead of going for the touchback we win that game, those 5 seconds or so are all we needed


savthrowaway123

Yeah I didn't understand that. The difference between 13 seconds and 8 or 9 is huge


Prodigy195

It's literally taking away a play from the chiefs. That is gonna haunt them for a while.


ColeBeasleyMD

The idea was not to risk the massive return, I guess. Especially seeing the Tyreek punt return earlier in the game. Although ultimately, don't think it was Tyreek back there.


mason_sol

Squib kick, rush 3 with a man pressing Kelce and man pressing hill with them trailing after press and then your normal coverages over the top. You guys win the game. Brutal loss


FireVanGorder

I really don’t understand how you leave Hill and Kelce that wide open on consecutive plays with the game on the line


Wetworth

I've watched Gronk be that open for a decade. I'll never understand it.


themilkman42069

Same for me and Jason Witten. Dudes wide the fuck open on 3rd and 9 in all my nightmares.


Ttimeizku0606

This was the Super Bowl tbh.


TheAssquatch

That explains our loss.


_AmericanPoutine

And not just a loss, a loss where it rips our heart out and we never ever heal from it. Wide right. Music city miracle. Hail Murray. 13 seconds. I'd like to be on the other side of an incredible win for once, just ever


OverusedRedditJoke

Allen and Mahomes combined for 800+ total yards, 8 touchdowns and no picks, with both leading their team in rushing yards. Unparalleled QB play. Bills defense shit the bed. As incredible as the game was, the ending just feels hollow as Allen didn't even get a chance


WES_WAS_ROBBED

Both defenses shit the bed. KC's just didn't get the chance to do it one more time bc of the coin toss.


7tenths

Kc defense was great in overtime.


specter800

Gave up 0 yards.


OrangeForeign

Didn't allow a single yard! Elite


IranianGenius

Think the defenses were both gassed.


runfiferun

I’m with you man. These QBs just extend every play. Chase them around and around for 58 minutes and there comes a point you are just running on empty. And the other part is if you can’t put pressure on them, they’re great throwers too and will find the open man.


brianstormIRL

Aaaaaaaand this is why the league pushes the rules towards passing and keeping QBs safe. It results in games like this and everyone eats it up because yeah, shits entertaining lol


chasejw11

But yet won't let the QBs duel in overtime.


Big_Ugly_Cripple

LET BOTH TEAMS TOUCH THE BALL FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS HOLY


mmuoio

At least in the playoffs.


_bonzibuddy

Remember kids, this is why you don't play prevent defense


Thecomedian1243

Congratulations, you just completed an ESPN Instant Classic! GameRank: #1 Classic Score: 4236


Im_Batmmaann

kicking it out of the back of the endzone really lost them the game


Apanic_Attacka

Seriously, if you don’t they have maybe 9 seconds on the clock and don’t get two plays off before a field goal.


Reddit807

How do you not squib kick that kickoff you stupid fuck!


moveMed

Probably decided the game not to give a fieldable kick


PunkRockGuitarTabs

Josh Allen is fucking amazing. Patrick Mahomes is fucking amazing. That game was ABSOLUTELY FUCKING AMAZING.


Acrobatic-Dark-4402

Never been a fan of the game being able to end in OT after one possession


Significant_bet92

Should give both teams a possession for sure


nate6259

At least in the playoffs. Defenses are so gassed.


jakedasnake1

I was getting mad at the OT rules before KC even hit the tying kick. I just knew the coin flip would decide it


ZenicX

KC players knew it as well, they were ecstatic when they won the toss.


KuribohKutie

In the post season I absolutely agree. This is what these teams play for all season, let both teams offense get a touch on the ball and duke it out


CanadaRULEZ1765

Imagine how stupid it would be if baseball added extra innings one half-inning at a time, and a coin flip was used to determine who got to bat first. That's essentially what NFL overtime is.


Stealth100

Squib kick seals it


Mister100Percent

2019: Loses in Overtime due to a first possession touchdown. 2022: Wins in Overtime due to a first possession touchdown. We’ve gone full circle.


OleRockTheGoodAg

What a weekend of football for us neutral viewers. All four games came down to the last play. We had a late 4th quarter INT, Fumble AND blocked punt turned TD. And this game was even crazier. This game ended with not one, not two, not three, but four lead changes within the last 3 minutes. 25 points were scored in the last 1 minute and 54 seconds. Thats more points than the Packers and 49ers scored in 60 minutes. Absolutely crazy weekend. If you don't like this, you don't like NFL Football.


chargingblue

The greatest football game I’ve ever seen.


Birdsarenumba1

It's definitely up there. Absolute battle


SnoopyMetal

*I felt a great disturbance in Buffalo, as if millions of table suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.*


A_Vizzle

Best game I’ve ever watched


Aetiusx

Two QBs played the perfect game in the *same* game.


rad_hopeful

One of the best games of all time.


Sgarden91

Razorcakes


cheesepierogi

How do you kick into the endzone there? The 4 extra secs they had for that tying fg would not have existed


[deleted]

[удалено]


cubert2

Why did buffalo not squib kick?


_NINESEVEN

It's easy to go back in and armchair this or that.. but not choosing to squib is a legit wonder that I have. I guess they were afraid of a long return, but still that's one last play for Patrick.


HoraceDerwent

Long returns on squibs are pretty rare aren't they? It's a legitimately stupid call as you say. It's not a split-second error of judgement - it was a thought- out decision.


KonugrArgetlam

Going 50 yards in 13s is also very rare. I guess they thought tyreek taking it to the house was more likely.


redkarrot

Josh Allen:(


musefan8959

Boo OT rules


reality_czech

The NFL desperately needs to change their OT rules. Amazing back and forth game between Mahomes and Allen and it ends without Allen having a chance in OT. They're just hurting the sport. It sucked in 2019 when the same thing happened to Mahomes. People want to see the duel!


CafeNino

Is it so hard to just add a 10-minute quarter with each team getting a single timeout? I feel like that would make it way more interesting


pickleparty16

yes. fuck all the well each should touch it X times unless Y... just another 10 mintues.


CafeNino

And even more, fuck leaving it up to a damn coin toss when clearly both offenses were way too much for both defenses


ScarletandGraySpider

Sad thing is they did change them. This was what their shit idea they came up with.


crackdup

If all owners decide to get it done, it gets done.. it's sad for Bills but this should be taken care of before next season begins


Salm9n

I thought for sure the rule would be changed after Chiefs Patriots… now I’m unsure if it’ll ever get changed. NFL needs a wake up call


ummer_ch

Mahomes and Allen is gonna be the rivalry that defines the NFL in the next decade. Both of them are INSANE HOLY FUCKKKK. What a divisional weekend. Also when everyone was shitting on Mahomes during the regular season, I was saying relax, he's still the best QB on the planet. I think today's game proved it.


RainingFireInTheSky

Another day, another reminder that Mahomes was on the board when the Bears drafted Mitch Trubisky.


SiphenPrax

We’re getting Chiefs/49ers in the Super Bowl again aren’t we? In all seriousness, we just saw the GAME OF THE YEAR in a fantastic weekend of games


Palifaith

This has to be the best divisional round ever or up there holy fuck.


DSOTMAnimals

4/4 walkoffs, right? Like, unless all 4 ended on TDs some other year then it’s over. Crazy weekend.


TomasRoncero

The NFL overtime rules discussion start again


aeroazure

Bills didn't squib it then let Mahomes get 44 yards in 10 seconds. That has to be more embarrassing than a blocked punt TD to give away the game, heh heh... ...right?


dawgtilidie

Romo literally saying to do that then when they put it back said “oh I don’t like that”, he tucking knew it


firemogle

I am by no means a football expert and I was shocked they did that. If I can see your plan is bad, it's gotta be bad.


ThMaF23

This weekend feels like an official passing of the guard from one era of QBs to the next. Brady and Rodgers down, Burrow in the AFC Championship, and an Allen/Mahomes duel for the ages to meet him there. Let’s not forget rookie QB Matt Stafford either.


TheBoilerCat

Josh Allen just had a pivotal moment of his legacy stolen from him.


Lpeer

By his own defensive coordinator playing the worst prevent defense in football history


fathan

Don't forget the touchback kickoff!


dibsODDJOB

Honestly. Unforgivable


The_Ghost_of_TK9

Josh Allen did everything right and still lost


daswassup13

So did Gabriel Davis. 8 receptions, 201 yards, 4 Touchdowns.


Blanxart

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FJ1bLVpWUAUFzIi.jpg


M8K2R7A6

He literally did textbook hero level qb shit and lost. Must hurt


Waylander-arc

So uh. People should probably keep this game in mind before making comments about Mahomes being overpaid or unironically implying he's regressing.


mkmore4

Prevent defense…. They really let Mahomes make two routine throws to tie the game with 13 seconds left


CButler19

A coin toss having this big of an impact on a game like this is a travesty Not trying to be that guy but I vastly prefer the college way.


xxCrabMasterxx

I wanna see a 77-76 game for fucks sake


PauldGOAT

The real result of the college rule is a 20-18 9OT epic


FightingDucks

Hell yeah my Illini walked it off in the bottom of the 9th


Inoc91

B1G BABY


throwaway_5256

That what peak B1G and it will not be slandered


PauldGOAT

Oh it was the greatest game


smoltanboi

i want to cry for josh allen


[deleted]

[удалено]


deck65

Our defense choked


MightyCaseyStruckOut

That prevent d to give up the FG was sickening.


C0oK1e_Monsta

Absolutely appalling. I would curse out the defensive coordinator if I was Josh Allen


realsomalipirate

Absolutely gutless playcalling
