The defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs will host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday in the AFC Championship Game in Kansas City.  The Chiefs will be making its third straight trip to the AFC title game while the Bills are back in the AFC title game for the first time since their historic four-year run in the early 1990’s, which resulted in four consecutive losses in the Super Bowl with the last following the 1993 season.

Cheifs quarterback Patrick Mahomes took the majority of snaps in practice yesterday but is still in the concussion protocol.

Bills and Chiefs kick-off at 6:40 Sunday night.

Sabres goaltender Linus Ullmark opened up on why he missed out on the Sabres two games in Philadelphia. Ullmark’s father passed away in Sweden at the age of 63, and learned about it on Monday after the morning skate. Learning the news, he told the coaching staff he needed some time away from hockey. He will travel with the team to Washington.

After being swept by the Washington Capitals earlier this season, the Buffalo Sabres can get some payback this weekend. The two teams will be meeting for a pair of games at the Capital Center in Washington, DC. The Capitals will be without several players due to the NHL’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Meanwhile, the Sabres have won only one of their first four games. Face-off for tonight’s contest is set for 7 p.m., Sunday’s game is at 3 p.m.

The Philadelphia Eagles are going to make Nick Sirianni their next head coach.  ESPN reports the Eagles will hire the Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator to replace Doug Pederson.  Sirianni has spent the last three seasons with the Colts.  The 39-year-old is from Western New York, he went to school in the Jamestown area.
