BUFFALO, N.Y. — Two days after the Buffalo Bills were knocked out of the postseason by the Kansas City Chiefs, coach Sean McDermott reflected on what work his team has left to do before it’s ready to beat the two-time defending AFC champions.
Sunday night’s 38-24 loss was the Bills’ second loss to Kansas City this season, with them also falling 26-17 in Week 6. The Chiefs controlled a majority of the AFC Championship Game, and McDermott admitted after the game that Kansas City will be Buffalo’s “measuring stick” heading into the offseason.
“There is still a gap in terms of where we are and where they are. It’s not just one answer that solves that problem,” McDermott said. “We all have to, starting with me, we all have to continue asking ourselves the hard questions of the what-ifs and the whys and the hows. We as a staff have to get better and improve, we have to improve our roster, we have to improve our operation and what we do.”
