Fans often forget about NFL Conference Championship games because they are merely a stepping-stone to the Super Bowl. However, some of these title games stand out more than the actual championship final. They bring moments of incredible drama as one team outperforms another in a way that viewers will never forget.
It could be an amazing comeback or total domination. Some of these games feature teams that should have been good enough to win the Vince Lombardi Trophy. But a shock defeat in the title game cost them dearly. Others use this as a catapult to launch themselves into Super Bowl contention. Check out the list via CBS Sports.
30. Bills vs. Chiefs (2021)
Bills fans will never forget this game even though they didn’t win. That’s because it signified their return to contention after years out in the cold. Buffalo had four successive Super Bowl losses in the 1990s before sinking into irrelevance. Finally, in 2020, they had a bonafide franchise quarterback in Josh Allen. They just had to beat the Chiefs to reach the promised land again.
Unfortunately, this was a bridge too far for the Bills. In the end, the Chiefs were convincing winners. Buffalo lost 38-24 but they didn’t suffer humiliation. Furthermore, it was a joy to see their fans running rampant and smashing tables. The NFL is a better league when the Bills are firing on all cylinders. The league will never forget this madness (via Bleacher Report).
