For the third straight year Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen has his team in the playoffs. But despite being the AFC's No. 3 seed, he's feeling a little disrespected heading into Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Chiefs.

Appearing on the Pat McAfee Show, Allen was asked to talk about the perceived lack of respect his Bills are getting. Allen made it clear that he wants the Bills to get what they're owed, but is more focused on the game.

"We want the respect that we deserve but at the same time I could give 2 shits about all of that.. I'm so focused trying to win football games for this team," Allen said.

This Divisional Round game is a rematch of last year's AFC Championship Game, which the Chiefs won 38-24. But Allen and the Bills got a measure of revenge in the regular season, beating the Chiefs in Arrowhead, 38-20.

Josh Allen had yet another Pro Bowl caliber season, completing 63.3-percent of his passes for 4,407 yards and 36 touchdowns in 17 games. He led the Bills to an 11-6 record and their second straight AFC East title.

In the Wildcard Round of the playoffs, the Bills easily dispatched the rival New England Patriots. Allen was unstoppable in that game, throwing five touchdowns and just four incompletions in a 47-17 rout.

If Allen can lead the Bills to a win over the defending AFC champions, they'll likely be favorites in the AFC Championship Game.

Can Josh Allen and the Bills get the job done in Kansas City this Sunday? Will they get the respect he feels they deserve?
