The legend Patrick Mahomes welcomes  back home for Sunday’s game against Buffalo. It’s going to be intense. He says, ‘I’m back home, Josh Allen. Let me on Sunday

Fitting that Patrick Mahomes provided a weather forecast as he looked ahead to the first official road playoff game of his NFL career on Sunday at not-so-balmy Buffalo.

Just the thought of a trip to western New York in January might be an intimidation factor for many. But not for Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Not after they played last weekend in the coldest game ever at Arrowhead Stadium, when it was minus-4 degrees at kickoff, with a wind-chill factor of minus-27 degrees that registered as the third-coldest game in NFL history.

“It’s not minus-30 this week,” Mahomes said, speaking wind chill, when he met reporters during a midweek press conference.

The Chiefs and Buffalo Bills will resume what has become a classic rivalry on Sunday night (6:30 ET) in the best matchup of the NFL divisional playoffs. This, a week after Buffalo’s playoff opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers was postponed for a day as the region dug out from a blizzard.

“I’m sure it’ll be like minus-3 or minus-4 and it’s going to be windy and cold,” Mahomes added. “It’s a great challenge. But I don’t know if it beats the cold that we played in this last week.”
