Bills advance to AFC Championship game with 17-3 win over Ravens (full coverage)

The game was billed as a showdown between elite young quarterbacks but it was the Buffalo Bills defense that put on a showcase performance to vault the franchise into its first AFC championship game since 1994.

The Bills and Ravens played to a 3-3 tie through 30 minutes but the offense came alive to start the third quarter. The defense clamped the door shut on the Baltimore Ravens when cornerback Taron Johnson scored on a pick-six that went for 101 yards on the next series.

Buffalo advances to the next round after a 17-3 victory on Saturday night at Bills Stadium. The Bills will play the winner of Sunday’s AFC divisional game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Cleveland Browns.
