The Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs face off in week 11 NFL action from Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Buffalo Bills will try to bounce back after dropping their last 3 games, including a 54-24 blowout loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in their last outing. Nathan Peterman had a dreadful 1st career start, throwing for just 66 yards and 5 interceptions on 6 of 14 passing before making way for Tyrod Taylor who threw for 158 yards and a touchdown while rushing for a score as well. LeSean McCoy took his 13 rushes and turned them into 114 yards and a touchdown. Zay Jones led the team with 68 receiving yards on 4 catches while Travaris Cadet caught a team-high 6 passes and McCoy added a touchdown grab with his lone reception. Defensively, a Shaw Lawson sack and forced fumble were the lone highlights as the Bills gave up 429 yards of total offense in the loss.
The Kansas City Chiefs will look to rebound from back-to-back losses, including a 12-9 overtime loss to the New York Giants in their last outing. Alex Smith threw for 230 yards and 2 interceptions on 27 of 40 passing, while Kareem Hunt led the Chiefs in rushing with 73 yards on 18 carries. Travis Kelce led the team with 8 catches for 109 yards while also throwing an interception with his lone pass attempt. Tyreek Hill came 2nd with 7 catches for 68 yards and after Hill, no Chiefs receiver logged more than 11 yards in the loss. Defensively, a Daniel Sorensen interception was the lone individual highlight as KC gave up 317 yards of total offense while holding the Giants to 3 for 13 on 3rd down in the losing effort.
Buffalo is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall while the over is 8-2 in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record. Kansas City is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the under is 40-19 in their last 59 home games. Buffalo is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in Kansas City.
The Bills may have had the bulk of the success as of late ATS when playing in Kansas City, but there’s no way I’m backing the Bills here even if I’m getting double digits. There’s way too many issues at quarterback and the defense can’t keep points off of the board. Kansas City didn’t inspire much confidence after last week, but they are a much better team than they showed last week, and I think they get the job done at home here by a couple of scores.
