The Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills produced an instant classic Sunday, going back and forth until the Chiefs scored in overtime to win 42-36 and advance to the AFC Championship Game.

The two teams combined to score 25 points in the final two minutes of regulation, including three touchdowns. The Chiefs trailed by a field goal when they took the ball at their own 25-yard line with 13 seconds left in the fourth quarter, yet somehow went on to win.

Here are what players and coaches from both sides had to say in the aftermath.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes on the game:

"I'll remember this for the rest of my life."

Bills quarterback Josh Allen on not having a chance to touch the ball in overtime:

"The rules are what they are, and I can't complain about that because if it was the other way around, we'd be celebrating, too."

Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce on his 25-yard reception at the end of the fourth quarter that set up the game-tying field goal:

"I told (Mahomes), I'm probably not going to run the route that's called and I was going to run to the open area. And in his cadence he was yelling to me, 'Do it! Do it!'"

Bills center Mitch Morse on the game:

"We just ended up on the wrong side of one of the greatest games in NFL postseason history."

Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill on where Mahomes sits on the quarterback index:

"He top two, and he not two."

Bills head coach Sean McDermott on the loss:

"What doesn't kill you should only make you stronger and I think this should make us stronger. It's gonna take some time but it should make us stronger."

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid on what he told Mahomes with 13 seconds left in the fourth quarter:

"When it's grim, be the Grim Reaper and go get it."

Bills safety Jordan Poyer on the loss:

"It's going to sting for a little while. Sting for a long time, actually."
