The Chiefs versus the Bills is the matchup between teams one and two and this time the Bills came up on top even though this is a loss you hate to take it does not kill the Chiefs’ season.

Chiefs Offensive Notes

The Chiefs’ offense was poor against an outstanding Bills defense. This was really because of Patrick Mahomes’ first bad game of the year. Mahomes ended the game with 2 INT one was in the Red Zone where if he had not thrown it the Chiefs probably would have ended up with at least a field goal. The other time he threw an interception was on the last drive to seal the game for the Bills. Now is this all Mahomes fault? Of course not. The Chiefs’ O-line again is very poor. No one on the O-line seemed to be able to block. Both tackles gave up an extreme amount of pressure. While on the other hand the Chiefs WR did not have a good time catching the ball, but to be honest they played the best out of anyone. Especially JuJu Smith-Schuster who might be finding his break out on the Chiefs.

Notable Offensive Players

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster (5 REC – 113 YDS- 1 TD)
  • Travis Kelce (8 REC   108 YDS)

Chiefs Defensive Notes

The Chiefs’ defense played amazing against what most people think is the number one offense in the NFL. The Chiefs were also missing some players which makes it more impressive that they held the Bills to just 24 points. The one spot on the defense that was poor would be the secondary. The Bills were very unsuccessful at running the ball which is because of the Chiefs’ steller D-line and Nick Bolton. Going into this year I was a big Nick Bolton and so far he has been one of the best players on this defense if not the best. We have also seen a lot of good games out of Chris Jones and this whole Chiefs’ D-line.

I think it’s gonna be a tough matchup but if our offense keeps working and the Mahomes and Kelce duo keeps on going, our defense needs to step up but if that all goes well then yeah, I think we’ll win””
