There was a lot of anticipation surrounding “Sunday Night Football” in Week 4, when Tom Brady and the Buccaneers returned to Gillette Stadium to face Bill Belichick, the Patriots.
That said, Week 5’s “Sunday Night Football” showdown may be even better. Fans and spectators are enjoying a rematch of the 2021 AFC Championship Game.
Two of soccer’s best young quarterbacks, Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen, will be looking to lead their respective teams to victory. The Chiefs are sitting only at .500, but they snapped a two-game losing stream with a win over the Eagles last week. They won 42-30, but their defense continued to inspire little confidence.
The Bills and Sean McDermott will be motivated to give Buffalo a key victory over Kansas City. They spent the offseason looking for players who could help hinder the Chiefs, so this is a great opportunity for them as they look to compete.
Find out more about the Week 5 matchup below, plus everything you need to know about watching “Sunday Night Football.”
Who is playing ‘Sunday Night Football’ tonight?
- Match: Invoices at Chiefs
- Location: Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.
The Bills and Chiefs will meet in a rematch of the 2021 AFC Championship Game in Week 5. The Chiefs won their last two meetings against the Bills, including a 14-point victory to advance to the Super Bowl last January.
Kansas City has posted a 2-2 record to start the season. Their defense is struggling immensely, so they will have to be ready to contain a Buffalo offense that possesses a lot of weapons to catch passes. However, the Bills may not be built to take advantage of the Chiefs’ weakness against the run.
Meanwhile, Buffalo is 3-1 on the season and has won its last three games by a combined score of 118-21. That includes two shutouts against the Dolphins (35-0) and Texans (40-0).
Of course, the Bills have played a weak quartet of quarterbacks so far this year. They have faced players like Ben Roethlisberger, Taylor Heinicke, Davis Mills and the tag team of Tua Tagovailoa and Jacoby Brissett. Patrick Mahomes will provide them with their first real test of the season as Buffalo seeks revenge and another step forward.
