The Bills outgained the Chiefs by a better than 2:1 margin on Sunday, but did not come away with the win. Buffalo rolled up 470 totally net yards on Kansas City’s fifth-ranked defense, while the Buffalo defense surrendered just three field goals to the Chiefs offense. It had the Chiefs tipping their hat to the Bills.
“It was tough because you really didn’t know what they were going to come out and do,” said Chiefs defensive lineman Mike DeVito. “(Tuel) did a really good job out there staying poised and making some passes. They had us in the run game. We have to look at that and clean it up. You just had no idea what they were going to come out and do. It took us a while to get used to it.”
“They had two people on me sometimes and they were watching out for me, especially on the screen plays,” said Jamaal Charles, who had six catches for six yards. “They were hugging and they were playing the screen routes well and all the other routes well too.”
“I’ll tell you this, I think Doug (Marrone) is a heck of a coach,” said Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. “He’s got a great staff and I knew they had a great defense coming in. If not the best one we’ve played thus far, surely one of the best ones. So I knew everybody was going to have to contribute, both sides of the ball and special teams. Everybody did that.”
