In Buffalo, Disappointment But Gratitude As Bills' Run Falls Short

Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills fell short in making their first AFC championship game appearance in 27 years with a 38-24 loss to the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs. Buffalo squandered a 9-0 lead by giving up three touchdowns over the span of 10:04 in the second quarter, and fell a win short of returning to the Super Bowl for the first time since their run of four straight appearances — and losses — ended in 1994.

For some perspective on the loss and the pandemic-influenced season, WAMC's Ian Pickus spoke with WBFO's Matt Sabuda.

A lifelong resident of the Capital Region, Ian joined WAMC in late 2008 and became news director in 2013. He began working on Morning Edition and has produced The Capitol Connection, Congressional Corner, and several other WAMC programs. Ian can also be heard as the host of the WAMC News Podcast and on The Roundtable and various newscasts. Ian holds a BA in English and journalism and an MA in English, both from the University at Albany, where he has taught journalism since 2013.
