The Bills (11-6) are riding a high as an organization. Prior to last season, the franchise had not won a playoff game in 25 years. Now, they have two postseason wins in the last two seasons and Josh Allen and company are only looking for more. Win this week and next, and the Bills are back in the Super Bowl for the first time since 1994.

Buffalo dismantled their division rival Patriots in the wild card round of the playoffs with a 47-17 win. Allen threw for a franchise record five touchdowns while completing 21-of-his-25 passes for 308 yards. Tight end Dawson Knox caught two of Allen’s touchdown throws, while running back Devin Singleton ran in another two scores.

The Chiefs (12-5) also have a hot hand at quarterback as Patrick Mahomes matched Allen’s wild card performance with five touchdown passes of his own in Kansas City’s 42-21 win over the Steelers last week. Mahomes has now thrown for at least two scores in each of his last six games. Tight end Travis Kelce took some of the workload off his quarterback’s shoulders as he threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Bryan Pringle for the Chiefs’ final score of the game.

These teams squared off up in week five of the regular season matchup and it marked the Bills’ biggest win of the season against anyone not named the Patriots. Buffalo took that game, 38-20. The loss dropped K.C. to 2-3 in the young season. They went 10-2 the rest of the way.

The Chiefs are 2-point favorites against the Bills. The over/under is 54. The winner of this game plays Cincinnati in next week's AFC Championship after the Bengals upset the Tennessee Titans yesterday.

Bills vs Chiefs live streams in the US

In the U.S., the Bills vs Chiefs live stream is going to be broadcast on CBS, which is available with most cable packages and on one of our favorite streaming services: fuboTV

The game starts at 6.30 p.m. ET / 3.30 p.m. PT today (Jan. 23).

You can get your local CBS network's NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The NFL game broadcast rights have stayed similar season over season. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, FOX has the NFC games, NBC has Sunday Night Football and some Thursday night football, while ESPN has Monday Night Football. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year. 

So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

Sling TV doesn't have CBS (not without AirTV at least), so while that's one of our favorite services, it's not ideal for football fans.
