We know both defenses in today’s game between the Bills and Chiefs have some major deficiencies. The question is which of those deficiencies plays a more prominent role in the outcome of the game.
Kansas City’s pass defense has been torched for big plays all season. They’ve given up a league high 15 pass plays of 40 yards or more. With deep threats like Lee Evans and Terrell Owens on the field I’d like to think the Bills can add to that total.
Of course Buffalo’s defense has a similar problem. They’ve surrendered a league high 15 runs of 20 yards or more.
So does Jamaal Charles run wild for the Chiefs?
My feeling is Buffalo’s wideouts will make 3 or 4 big plays and it will be the difference in the game.
When Buffalo’s defense has a poor outing like they did against the Jets they’re able to at least improve the next week. They’re not great, but they’re usually better.
A prime example would be their performance against Jacksonville’s Maurice Jones-Drew a week after letting Tennessee’s Chris Johnson go nuts.
They held Jones-Drew to 66 yards rushing. Here’s hoping for similar results against the Chiefs.
