While it wasn’t nice, the Buffalo Bills completed the task at hand in their regular-season finale. The Bills won their fourth straight AFC East title and clinched the No. 2 seed by defeating the Miami Dolphins 21-14 in Week 18.

It was a crushing setback for Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and company. With this loss, the Dolphins missed out on winning the division, which they haven’t done in 15 years. Instead of winning home-field advantage, the Dolphins will travel to Kansas City to face the Chiefs in the Wild Card round.

Bills quarterback Josh Allen went to shake Tagovailoa’s hand after the decisive game at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday Night Football. “I’ve always enjoyed competing against you, bro,” Tagovailoa remarked. Instead of just responding, “Good game,” the Bills star sent a powerful message to his division opponent.

“Will we see you guys again?” We’ll see you in a few weeks.”

 

Allen’s remark sparked an uproar on X, formerly known as Twitter. The engagement was well received by the majority of Dolphins fans. “This is why I’ll never hate Josh Allen,” one user said, while another said, “Josh Allen, all class.”

Chiefs Kingdom, on the other hand, was not pleased with the remark. Allen’s suggestion that the Bills will face the Dolphins in a few weeks implies that Miami will beat the Chiefs.

One user commented, “Musta meant at the Pro Bowl or something.” “Yeah, they’ll be in Cancun together,” another Chiefs fan speculated.

The stats for Josh Allen against the Miami Dolphins are impressive.

“Of course, he wants to see us again in a couple of weeks, he’s like 150-1 against us,” one Dolphins supporter said. And, to be honest, Allen has Miami under his control.

In his career, the Wyoming alum is 11-2 against the Dolphins, including the playoffs. According to the Buffalo News, “He now has thrown multiple touchdowns in 13 straight games against the Dolphins, the longest streak against a single opponent in NFL history.”

In Week 18, the 27-year-old quarterback only added to his stats against the Dolphins. Allen concluded the game against Miami by completing 30-of-38 passes for 359 yards, his sixth straight game with over 300 yards.

So, if both teams progress this weekend, Allen definitely wouldn’t mind seeing the Dolphins. If both the Chiefs and the Bills win this weekend, Kansas City will play in the AFC Divisional playoff at Orchard Park. In Week 14, the Bills defeated the Chiefs 20-17 at Arrowhead Stadium. The Bills would have a chance to avenge the “13 seconds” calamity two years ago if they faced Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes at Highmark Stadium.

 

Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills are intent on defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers.

While Allen is pleased with how the Bills have rebounded this season, winning the division isn’t the main prize he seeks. After the Bills defeated Miami, wide receiver Stefon Diggs whispered to Allen, “Four more,” and Allen agreed.

However, in a press conference on January 10, Allen acknowledged his gratitude to the team for being in this position. “There’s a lot of teams that aren’t in the playoffs, a lot of guys that aren’t practicing today, so this is a very inspired group right now,” said Allen. “We just love that we’re able to come in here and do what we love to do.”

“You want to peak at the right time,” Allen said of their five-game winning streak. “I believe this football team still has a lot of work to do, but we’re on the right track.” We’re extremely fortunate to be able to play another game.”

On Sunday, January 14, the Bills will play the Pittsburgh Steelers. The game begins at 1 p.m. ET. The Bills have the advantage of playing in Orchard Park, where they have gone 4-1 in playoff games since 2020.
