The Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills had to deal with some rough conditions. It rained in Buffalo and that meant the field and ball were slick. So the Chiefs decided to feed their rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire. And that ended up being a winning strategy for Kansas City. Edwards-Helaire got some nice holes to run through thanks to some tough blocking from the Chiefs offensive line. But there’s no doubt the rookie made the most out of those handoffs. He always seems to have two or three defenders trailing behind him. Which is largely because Edwards-Helaire has such good vision. He can anticipate the flow of the defense and always find a crease to cutback. Then there’s his breakaway speed that led to 161 yards against Buffalo. Kansas City is fortunate to have someone that can take over when the passing game is bogged down by rain or snow. The Bills are also known for having a tough defense too. But Clyde-Edwards was just too good in this one. The final score was 26-17 Chiefs.
