Chiefs And Bills Have Similar Playoff Problems

We all know about the Kansas City Chiefs playoff struggles over the last 18 years but the Buffalo Bills are in a similar drought as KC.

That's pretty much accurate. The Chiefs last win was actually on January 16, 1994 but who's counting? On that day the Chiefs beat the Houston Oilers in the Divisional round, their second playoff win that year. Coincidentally they went on to lose to the Bills in the AFC Championship game the following week. (And Old Man Thorman had promised to take Chris and I out of school for the Super Bowl parade if the Chiefs made it, which they didn't. Sigh...)

As everyone knows the Bills made four consecutive Super Bowls -- losing them all -- in the '90s. Their last playoff win came against the Miami Dolphins on December 30, 1995. The following week they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, who went on to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. (That's the year of the Kicker Who Shall Not Be Named.)

Here's the box score from the Chiefs last playoff win and the one for the Bills is here.
