Bills gained yards, but not the ‘W’

It’s not often that a team rolls up 470 yards of offense and comes out on the short end of the stick, but as head coach Doug Marrone stated, it always comes down to turnovers first. Still, it was hard to ignore the yardage differential between the two offenses Sunday.

The Bills, as mentioned gained 470 total net yards, while the Chiefs offense managed just 210. The 260-yard differential is the largest ever by Buffalo in a loss. The previous high was 253 yards in a 31-17 loss at Tampa Bay back in the 2000 season (433 yards to 180 yards).

The major discrepancy was on the ground. Buffalo rolled up a season-high 241 rushing yards while the Chiefs managed just 95. The 146-yard differential there is the second-highest in a loss in team history, behind only a 184-yd. advantage (211-27) vs. Denver all the way back in 1962, a 23-20 loss.
