The Tampa Bay Buccaneers eliminated the Philadelphia Eagles from the NFL Playoffs this season, securing the final slot in the divisional round that takes place the following week.

The Eagles were the last club to lose their perfect record this season for the second year in a row after being defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs in a thrilling Super Bowl game last February.

They finished November with a 10-1 record, but a 32-9 loss at Tampa Bay meant they had lost six of their previous seven games, signaling the end of an unhappy season.

The Bills lost at that point two years prior following a thrilling shootout in Kansas City between Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes, which the Chiefs won 42-36 in overtime.

The Chiefs will now try to hold onto their dreams of winning a third NFL championship in five years and going to the Super Bowl back-to-back next Sunday when they go to Buffalo.

Earlier in the day, the Bucs, who defeated the Chiefs in the 2021 Super Bow, would play the Detroit Lions.Bowl

But that evaporated late in the third quarter as Tampa Bay forced Philly to concede a safety and the Eagles’ defence was again found wanting as Trey Palmer scored a 56-yard touchdown.

A late Chris Godwin score made it three touchdown passes and 337 passing yards for Mayfield, who has re-established himself as a top QB on his third team since leaving the Cleveland Browns after the 2021 season.

Pittsburgh’s game with the Bills was moved from Sunday to Monday after a state of emergency was declared in the Buffalo region, with strong winds and heavy snow forecast.

The Bills even appealed for fans to help shovel snow from Highmark Stadium, giving them $20 (£15.70) an hour plus hot drinks and breakfast, after several feet fell in upstate New York.

The temperature was -7C – nothing compared to the -20C for the Chiefs’ home win on Saturday – and Buffalo caught the Steelers cold by charging into a 21-0 lead with three touchdowns.

Allen produced scoring strikes to tight ends Dawson Knox and Dalton Kincaid in the first quarter, before running it in from 52 yards in the second – the longest run of his career.

Just before the half, Pittsburgh mounted a comeback thanks to a touchdown by Diontae Johnson. In the following quarter, the two sides traded field goals.

And even though Calvin Austin’s touchdown in the fourth quarter made the score 24–17, Buffalo responded quickly with a strong play from Khalil Shakir in the end zone.

With that play, Allen now had three touchdown throws, and the Bills had won six straight since the beginning of December.
