Kansas City Chiefs Defeats the Buffalo Bills in Classic Overtime Playoff Battle

Last night in Arrowhead Stadium, possibly one of the best games in NFL playoff history went down. We witnessed two great next-generation quarterbacks go back and forth as Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen put on a clinic in an epic AFC divisional round clash in the NFL playoffs. 

            Mahomes threw a walk-off touchdown to Travis Kelce in overtime to take the game after an all-time clash that saw many twists and turns throughout. The game came to an end in a wild fashion, which saw an astonishing 25 points scored in the final 1:54 of regulation time. With just 13 seconds left in the game and the Chiefs down by 3, it seemed all but lost for Kansas City’s hopes of making it back to the Superbowl. However, Chiefs coach Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes had other ideas.

            “When it’s grim, be the Grim Reaper and go get it,” Reid said he told Mahomes before the final drive of regulation. With those words on his mind, the 26-year-old was able to get his team into position for a game-tying, 49-yard field goal. But let’s not forget Josh Allen as he had a marvelous game, passing for 329 yards and four touchdowns. The Bills came firing out the gate, scoring a touchdown on the opening possession, but the Chiefs immediately answered back, and so the game went. Allen didn’t even get a chance to play in overtime, due to the NFL’s somewhat odd rules for overtime, so who knows what would’ve happened if the Bills had won the coin toss.

    Op-Ed: MLB Allows CBD Sponsorships: Could This Change The Outlook on Marijuana in Professional Sports?

Now, as of June 2022, Major League Baseball has officially announced their new policy in which teams are allowed to be officially sponsored by CBD companies, the chemical found in marijuana that promotes therapeutic effects, but does not produce any high like THC, the other prevalent chemical in marijuana.
