A spot in the AFC Championship Game will be on the line when the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills collide on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. One year ago, the Chiefs knocked off the Bills to earn a spot in Super Bowl LV. This year, Buffalo (12-6) is looking for revenge against Kansas City (13-5), which has won 10 of its last 11 games. Kansas City is a two-point favorite in the latest NFL odds from Caesars Sportsbook.
The game is the last of four in the Divisional Round of the 2022 NFL playoffs. On Saturday, the Titans host the upstart Bengals, and the Packers and 49ers collide in Green Bay. Also on Sunday, Tom Brady and the Buccaneers host the Rams.

Top divisional round NFL picks
After simulating every NFL playoff game 10,000 times, the model is high on the 49ers to cover as six-point road underdogs against the Packers. San Francisco (11-7) advanced to the Divisional Round of the NFL playoff bracket with a 23-17 upset of the Cowboys on Super Wild Card Weekend. Green Bay (13-4) had last week off by virtue of earning the No. 1 seed in the NFC.
The 49ers can exploit the Packers’ inability to stop the run. During the regular season, Green Bay gave up 4.7 yards per rush; just two teams, the Chiefs (4.77) and Steelers (4.99), gave up more. That bodes well for a San Francisco team that has averaged 4.55 yards per rush since Dec. 16, which ranks 12th in the league over that time.
