Travis Kelce has arguably been the top tight end in the NFL since Patrick Mahomes took over as the starting quarterback in Kansas City. This season, Buffalo’s Dawson Knox joined the conversation, and if NFL fans weren’t familiar with him before last weekend, they definitely were after the Bills‘ dominant 47-17 win over the Patriots. In Kansas City’s 42-21 win over Pittsburgh last Sunday, Kelce finished with five catches for 108 yards and a touchdown, but the day before, Knox came away with five catches for 89 yards and two scores. This Sunday, Kelce and the Chiefs host Knox and the Bills, and you can see what happens in the 2022 NFL playoffs when you stream the game on Paramount+.

Divisional Round NFL picks for Chiefs vs. Bills
Before you tune in to Sunday’s Bills vs. Chiefs game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,500 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters the divisional round of the 2021 NFL playoffs on an incredible 137-97 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season. Amazingly, it hasn’t missed a top-rated pick since Week 14 of the regular season.
The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
For Bills vs. Chiefs, the model is backing Buffalo to cover the spread on the road. Buffalo has given up the sixth-fewest receiving yards to opposing tight ends this year, and even though Kelce scored a touchdown in the game between the two during the regular season, so did Knox. The difference between the two top tight ends was Knox finished with twice as many yards (117) in half as many catches (3) to key Buffalo’s 38-20 win.
In last week’s wild card games, New England tight end Hunter Henry caught just one pass against Buffalo. Meanwhile the Patriots’ starter, Jonnu Smith, was held off the stat sheet altogether. Pittsburgh’s offense has been the subject of much scrutiny this season, but Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth was held to just four catches for 25 yards against Kansas City. Whichever team is the most successful covering its opponent’s tight end on Sunday should hold a heavy edge in the outcome.
The SportsLine model predicts that Kelce will finish with the better performance, and push for six catches and over 65 receiving yards. However, Knox is projected to average 12.6 yards per reception, which allows Buffalo to cover the spread in over 50 percent of simulations.
