If the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs meet in the NFL American Association Finals, the game will take place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Sunday evening, Jan. 29, the league said Thursday. .
As planned following the cancellation of the game between Buffalo and the Cincinnati Bengals on January 2, the NFL has determined a neutral site in the event that Buffalo and Kansas City come to grips in the third round of the playoffs. The Chiefs finished atop the All-American with a 14-3 record and will have a second-round bye.
Unable to complete their penultimate meeting of the campaign due to the cardiac arrest suffered by their player Damar Hamlin, the Bills settled for second place and will have to rub shoulders with the Miami Dolphins next weekend.
The Goodell circuit last week approved a measure aimed at mitigating the impact of the canceled game in Ohio, the two teams involved having played one game less than all their rivals.
