  • With the win against the Ravens, the Bills will play in their first AFC Championship game since January 23, 1994.
  • The Bills have recorded their first postseason winning streak since 1/15/94 vs. L.A. Raiders (29-23 in Divisional Round) and 1/22/94 vs. K.C. Chiefs (30-13 in AFC Championship). The winning streak is Buffalo's sixth in their playoff history and improve the team's all-time postseason record to 16-17.
  • With the win Sean McDermott improves his postseason record to 2-2 as Bills head coach.
  • The Bills did not have a turnover against the Ravens which marks their first-ever playoff streak of games without committing a turnover. It is the fifth time in Bills postseason history without a turnover in a playoff game.
  • On the Ravens first drive of the game, Levi Wallace sacked Lamar Jackson for an 11-yard loss. That marked Wallace's first sack of his career.
  • Jerry Hughes recorded two sacks against the Ravens. He set a team post-season record with three sacks last year at Houston. He is the fourth Bill with 5.0 official sacks in playoffs since 1982. He joins Darryl Talley (6.5), Jeff Wright (9.0), and Bruce Smith (14.5).
  • At the end of the first half the score was tied 3-3 and it is the lowest scoring first half of a playoff game since 1970.
  • On the Bills first drive of the second half, Josh Allen found Stefon Diggs for a three-yard touchdown. With the touchdown catch, Diggs is now first Bill with a receiving touchdown in back-to-back playoff games since Thurman Thomas (1/6/96 at Pit. & 12/28/96 vs. Jax.).
  • Taron Johnson picked off Lamar Jackson at the end of the third quarter and brought it 101-yards to the house. That marked Lamar Jackson's first career interception in the red zone. That's the first Bills post-season defensive touchdown since 12/28/96 vs. JAX - Jeff Burris, 38-yard INT. Johnson's pick six is tied with Green Bay's George Teague (101 yard INT TD, 1/8/94 at DET) for the longest interception touchdown in postseason history.
  • Stefon Diggs had eight receptions for 106 yards against the Ravens. This is his third career playoff game with 100+ receiving yards and becomes the 46th player in NFL history with at least 3 such games. Diggs is the third Bill with multiple 100+ yard receiving games in the playoffs. He also joins James Lofton (149 yds. vs. Miami on 1/12/91 & 113 yds. vs. L.A. Raiders on 1/20/91)
  • Mario Addison sacked Tyler Huntley for an eight-yard loss. That marks Addison's second postseason sack of his career, and his first as a Buffalo Bill.
