The fan rushed the field during the two-minute warning prior to the Bills' 4th-and-13 play from the Chiefs' 27-yard line.

The moment didn't faze the Bills, as quarterback Josh Allen threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Gabriel Davis to give Buffalo a 27-26 lead.

Diggs then toe-tapped in the back of the end zone to catch a two-point conversion toss for a 29-26 edge.

The teams traded touchdowns in a chaotic final stretch before Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker knocked home a 49-yard field goal to tie the game at 36 as time expired.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes then sent his team to its fourth consecutive AFC Championship Game by capping the opening overtime drive with an eight-yard TD toss to tight end Travis Kelce.
