- The Bills held an opponent scoreless in the first quarter for the first time in 9 games.
- The defensive scheme of the Chiefs confused the Bills early and they got tremendous pressure from the edges on Fitzpatrick.
- Chan Gailey challenged a stop on a Chiefs third down stop in the 2nd qtr. It's tough to win those challenges and he didn't but it was worth it since it only cost them a first half timeout. They aren't as important as 2nd half timeouts.
- The 8:57 drive to a field goal to start the third quarter was the longest of the season in terms of time of possession. - The Chiefs became the fourth team in five games to get 200 yards rushing on the Bills. They finished with a whopping 274 yards on the ground but somehow only scored 13 points.
The Bills continue to amaze me with the ways they find to lose. I actually thought they were going to win a game today. The Chiefs did so much to bungle this game. The referees awarded the Bills two huge victories on challenges in the final minutes of the game to actually allow them to tie the game. Lindell hit an apparent game winning 53 yard field goal in overtime but as usual this snake bit franchise lost again. The defense was awful but the Chiefs play calling was mind blowing as they stopped their own fourth down conversion with a timeout and then punted. The Bills had at least four chances to win and fell short everytime thanks to two punts, a missed field goal after a phantom timeout, and a turnover. They couldn't force a turnover, what else is knew, and despite every chance given to them to win, they found a way to lose. Thus is the life of a Bills fan. The question is if the Chiefs missed that final field goal would a tie have been fitting for a very poorly played game.
The Bills will once again look for their first win of the season. They will be at their home away from home when they take on the Chicago Bears in Toronto. Chicago is coming off their bye week so they will be well rested for this game.
