NFL Reveals Buffalo Bills vs. Kansas City Chiefs Neutral Site for Potential AFC Championship


The NFL revealed its neutral site of selection for a possible AFC Championship featuring the Buffalo Bills vs. Kansas City Chiefs.

In keeping with ESPN, the Atlanta Falcons and Mercedes-Benz Stadium will host the potential game.

“We’re heartened by the continued improvement and progress of Damar Hamlin in his recovery, and Damar and his family remain top of mind for the whole NFL community,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a press release. “We’re also grateful to Arthur Blank and the Atlanta Falcons for agreeing to host the AFC Championship Game in Atlanta should the Bills and Chiefs advance. We thank each clubs for his or her assistance within the planning process. We all know, if crucial, Mercedes-Benz Stadium will provide a world-class atmosphere for the competing teams, our fans and partners.”

The one end result that may send the Bills to Atlanta is in the event that they and the Chiefs each make it to the AFC Championship Game. Another matchup would end in the host being the higher-seeded team.

Had the Bills won that Week 17 contest against the Cincinnati Bengals, they’d have clinched homefield advantage with a win in Week 18.

Nonetheless, with neither team “clinching” homefield, that is the answer the NFL selected.

The NFL doesn’t need more problems on its plate, so traveling to a city like Cleveland, Pittsburgh or Recent York could bring on unpredictable weather.

When the NFL plans its Super Bowls, the league almost at all times has scheduled the neutral-site game in either a closed-roof stadium, like this yr’s Super Bowl home in Glendale, Arizona, or a warm-weather city. Mercedes-Benz Stadium has hosted a Super Bowl before. It also recently hosted an enormous neutral-site game on the Peach Bowl on Dec. 31.

Atlanta can also be each within the range of 800-900 miles away from Buffalo and Kansas City, a really possible matchup and a rematch of the 2020 AFC Championship game.

The AFC Championship game kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 29.
