Following the Kansas City Chiefs’ triumphant 27-24 victory over the Bills in Sunday’s AFC Divisional Round game, Patrick Mahomes shared a photo of himself on Instagram accompanied by the caption, “good luck.”
This post was a direct response to Dion Dawkins’ pre-game comments. Dawkins had remarked, “Pat has never been to the Bills stadium in full. … The environment will be different, and not to say it’s in our favor, but the stadium is in our favor.
Stadium is us. That helps us. I don’t care what nobody says. This is the dopest feeling I’ve ever had. We’re having two back-to-back playoff games at home. Come on now, like we get to leave and eat wings. It’s cool. So good luck.”
Sunday marked Mahomes’ first game at Buffalo’s Highmark Stadium with fans in attendance, as his previous visit during the 2020 season occurred when stadiums were empty due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Contrary to concerns about the home crowd advantage, Mahomes delivered an impressive performance, completing 17-of-23 passes for 215 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. Both touchdown passes were caught by Travis Kelce.
Additionally, Mahomes extended the Chiefs’ dominance over the Bills in the playoffs, eliminating them for the third time in the last four years. With such a track record, the Bills might think twice before extending good luck wishes to Mahomes in future encounters.
