The Bills were skidding after losing three straight games but luckily for Buffalo they were able to get back on track against the Chiefs. It’s not easy to go on the road to Arrowhead Stadium and pull out a win but somehow Sean McDermott’s team was able to do so. It feels like the defense was the main reason why Buffalo edged out Kansas City simply due to the fact the Bills only surrendered 10 points the entire game. When an NFL team is held under 14 points that’s the sign of a strong defensive performance and that kind of output will elevate McDermott and company down the stretch. E.J Gaines was the Bills best defender he finished the match up with 8 tackles. Lorenzo Alexander recorded 2 tackles and 1 sack in the win as well. Tyrod Taylor didn’t play great for the Bills but he was leaps and bounds better than the 5 interceptions Nathan Peterman threw last week. Taylor ended up throwing for 183 yards, 1 touchdown, and 0 interceptions for the day. Zay Jones hauled in that lone touchdown pass from Taylor and also contributed 33 receiving yards. There wasn’t a lot of production from the Buffalo offense but give them credit for scoring enough points to secure the victory. Alex Smith struggled to find the end zone for Kansas City he threw for 199 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. Albert Wilson caught the Chiefs only touchdown in what would go on to be a lackluster offensive outing for Andy Reid’s ball club. One bright spot for KC was Reggie Ragland’s stat line, the former Bill led the Chiefs with 9 tackles. Daniel Sorensen put together a 7 tackle and 1 sack day as well. In the end the Bills were able to compile more big plays on both sides of the ball and ultimately that was the deciding factor.
