The team seemed to love the effort, with All-Pro quarterback Josh Allen turning on the flashlight on his phone and turning it into a fake concert lighter.
It’s a brief moment for a Buffalo Bills team seemingly destined to make it to the Super Bowl — or at least the AFC Championship.
Buffalo opens the 2022 season as the favorites’ chance to win the Super Bowl – which would be the first title in a major sport the Queen City of the Lakes has ever seen.
The team came close to it in the 2021 season, falling into overtime for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Buffalo looks determined to exorcise the demons of a toss that Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes gave the football to score the touchdown that ended the game.
That’s because of an overtime rule that said the period would end at the first touchdown scored — even if the opposing team never had the ball.
The Bills successfully lobbied the league to change the rule so that both teams could gain possession, which came into effect this season.
It wasn’t the first time the rule ended immediately in a major playoff game — the 2016 New England Patriots in particular were able to complete the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history by scoring a touchdown at the first possession against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.
Even though the Chiefs were the beneficiaries of the rule last season, they were previously burned by it when the 2018 Patriots team won the AFC Championship game on first possession before winning Super Bowl LIII.
