The NFL Divisional Round weekend has been one of the best of the playoff season. It has given you an opportunity to see if some of the best teams in the league really have what it takes to be a Super Bowl 2024 contender. And it also helps you get a sense for which teams have what it takes so late in the season to overcome injuries to take the sport's top prize. And needless to say, the Chiefs vs Bills, which will air in about an hour, will be one you won't want to miss for this NFL live stream.

The Chiefs vs Bills game may be the most competitive all weekend. The teams are evenly matched, have outstanding quarterbacks, and know how to play in the cold. And yes, it will be cold when they play.

The Chiefs come into the game with some good and bad news. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes continues to be stellar and tight end Travis Kelce is clearly one of the top tight ends to ever play the game. But Mahomes also finds himself with too few targets and has relied greatly on his running to make up for a general lack of reliable wide receivers. Whether the Bills can capitalize on that remains to be seen.

Speaking of the Bills, there are plenty of question marks. At one point this season, the Bills looked like one of the top teams in the league, only to falter and nearly miss the playoffs. Last week, however, they looked outstanding in their easy victory over the Steelers. And with home field advantage in their corner, there's a very real possibility the Chiefs have their work cut out for them.

But again, the weather could impact all of this. With sub-freezing temperatures expected, both teams will need to be ready to play in the frigid cold. Even worse, with breezy wind and the possibility of 20MPH wind gusts, don't be surprised if field goals go awry.

DraftKings oddsmakers have been keeping a close eye on this one and have given the Bills a small, 2.5-point advantage. They also think the game will be a reasonably high-scoring affair with a 50.5-point over/under.

The Chiefs vs Bills game looks like an outstanding one on paper. And you won't want to miss it. So read on to find out how to watch the game tonight.

Will Taylor Swift be at Chiefs vs Bills?

After cheering on boyfriend Travis Kelce at last week's wild card game in Arrowhead Stadium, Taylor Swift will likely be in attendance for the divisional game between the Chiefs and Bills in Buffalo. 

That's our educated guess based on the fact that Swift has been at 10 games this season and hasn't missed a game unless she's been on tour or had a conflicting event (like the Golden Globes). 

And while some Brads, Chads and dads may grumble at the screentime she gets — which is not of her doing, blame the network or the NFL — coach Andy Reid at least has praised her attendance. After all, she's been something of a good luck charm as the Chiefs have won seven of the 10 games she's attended.
