2. Buffalo’s stingy defence returns to shut down Chiefs offence

Following three straight weeks of opposing teams manhandling them on offence the Bills defence returned to form to shut down Kansas City’s big playmakers.

The Bills limited Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith to 199 passing yards on 26/36 passing with one touchdown and one interception.

The Bills solid pass defence and pass rush held Smith for under 200 passing yards for only the second time this season.

As a result the Chiefs’ big playmakers, tight end Travis Kelce and speedy wide receiver Tyreek Hill were limited on offence. Kelce caught three catches for 38 yards while Hill led the team with seven catches for 41 yards.

The Bills also stifled the Chiefs running game as well. Rookie standout running back Kareem Hunt was only able to run for 17 yards on 11 carries with zero touchdowns.

Smith would be the Chiefs leading rusher with 35 rushing yards on five carries.

The 237 total yards on offence for the Chiefs was the fewest the Bills have allowed on the road in six years according to the Bills media relations department.
