By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Buffalo Bills have not seen the AFC Championship game since their glory years. After a 27-year wait, the Bills are back in the game.

Buffalo defeated the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night. The Bills won 17-3 over the Ravens at Bills Stadium in Orchard Park, New York.

The Western New York based team will play either the Cleveland Browns or the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game. The two teams will do battle on Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

If the Chiefs win, the AFC Championship game will be played at Arrowhead Stadium. However, if the Browns can pull the upset over the defending Super Bowl Champions, the game will be played at Bills Stadium.

The Ravens had their season come to an end with this loss. But their concern is with their franchise quarterback Lamar Jackson, who was injured in the third quarter of the contest.

Jackson was tackled near the end zone on a play. He stayed down for what appeared to be several minutes.

Eventually, he got up and went to the locker room. The team said that he was in concussion protocol.

Once Jackson left the game, the Ravens hopes of winning the game went out the window.

Bills quarterback Josh Allen went 23 of 37 for 206 yards. He had one touchdown pass.

Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins had 10 carries for 42 yards. Marquise Brown had four receptions for 87 yards.

Johnson is the second man to accomplish this feat in the playoffs. George Teague was the first to do this in 1993.
