The Buffalo Bills are hoping to keep their playoff journey alive in the Divisional Round and advance to the AFC Championship for just the second time in the last 30 years. Head coach Sean McDermott's team enters as a notable 5.5-point favorite against the Cincinnati Bengals, per FanDuel Sportsbook.
Some Buffalo fans are already looking ahead to a potential AFC Championship Game appearance as a result. Here's everything you need to know about the Bills' possible schedule for the next round.
Who Will the Bills Play Next in the Playoffs if They Win?
Only four teams remain in the AFC playoffs after Wild Card Weekend. The Bills and Bengals will face off in one matchup, while the Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs are playing in the other. Should Buffalo defeat Cincinnati on Sunday, the team would then face the winner of Jacksonville-Kansas City in the conference championship round.
Where Will the AFC Championship Game Be Played 2023?
The NFL has added a new wrinkle to this year's AFC Championship Game. Should the Bills meet up against the Chiefs, the contest will be played at the neutral site of Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. It would be business as usual if Buffalo and Jacksonville meet head-to-head, though. As the higher seeded team, the Bills would host the Jaguars at Highmark Stadium in Buffalo, New York.
