Sunday was a good game for Buffalo’s running back tandem as they combined for their most productive day of the season as a duo, but there was another Bills duo that did every bit as well at their respective positions.
Chris Kelsay and Aaron Schobel had big games for Buffalo’s defensive front. Kelsay set the tone early for the defense with a sack and forced fumble (KC recovered). And in the third quarter, his quarterback hit on Matt Cassel led to an interception by Terrence McGee.
“It was supposed to be a three step drop I believe because it was like a draw set for me so I had to overlap and was getting ready to retrace and come back on the draw, and Terrence had good coverage so he ended up rolling out and we got good pressure off the back side and I ended up coming up and he held long enough for me to get a hit on him and he threw the ball to Terrence,” said Kelsay.
Kelsay also had a tackle for loss.
Schobel meanwhile had a quarterback hit, a pass breakup and a tackle for loss, along with one of the bigger plays of the game. On the 4th-and-goal at the Bills one-yard line, Schobel beat Matt Cassel to the corner on the naked bootleg attempt and dragged him down for a seven-yard loss as the Chiefs came away with nothing.
“We played well, we let that one go so on the statistics it won’t look good for rushing yards, but we got after them in passing situations and the secondary caught balls they should have caught so we had a pretty good day,” said Schobel.
Fellow defensive lineman Spencer Johnson had a sack as well as the linemen accounted for three of their four in the game.
