Bills advance to AFC Championship game for 1st time since 1994


The Buffalo Bills are headed to the AFC Championship game for the first time since 1994.

Buffalo punched its ticket with a 17-3 victory over the Baltimore Ravens at Bills Stadium on Saturday night. Taron Johnson returned an interception 101 yards for a touchdown to give the Bills a 14-point lead in the third quarter while Stefon Diggs became the first Bills player with a receiving touchdown in consecutive playoff games since Thurman Thomas in 1995 and '96.

The Bills will play for a trip to the Super Bowl on Sunday, Jan. 24 at 6:40 p.m. at home against the Cleveland Browns or on the road against the top-seeded Kansas City Chiefs. The Browns and Chiefs play their Divisional-Round contest this Sunday at 3:05 p.m. on CBS.

The Bills faced the Chiefs during Week 6 of the regular season, a 26-17 Kansas City win.

Buffalo defeated Kansas City in its last appearance in the AFC Championship, a 30-13 victory on Jan. 23, 1994 that clinched a fourth straight Super Bowl berth. The two teams had two prior playoff meetings dating back to 1967, when the Chiefs defeated the Bills for the AFL title and a berth in Super Bowl I. The Bills beat the Chiefs in the Divisional Round in 1992.

The Bills and Browns have met once in the playoffs, a 34-30 Cleveland victory in the Divisional Round on Jan. 6, 1990.
