Mathieu logged just seven snaps Sunday in a 36–33 win over Buffalo. He exited the game with a concussion on the opening drive after taking a knee to the head from teammate Jarran Reed. 

Kansas City‘s offense was able to overcome the loss of Mathieu as Patrick Mahomes threw for 378 yards and three touchdowns. The Chiefs could be in for another shootout Sunday in the AFC championship, with a matchup against Joe Burrow and the Bengals slated for 3 p.m. ET.
