The Chiefs offense isn’t going to wow anyone with game breaking plays, but they will methodically march down the field en route to putting points on the board. Kansas City head coach Andy Reid has his offense executing at an extremely high level this season.
The Chiefs are ranked second in third down conversions (52%), first in third and long conversions (45.5%), third in average number of plays per drive (8.91) and second in number of drives that chew up five minutes of game clock or more (17). In addition they are fourth in fewest fumbles lost with three, first in fewest penalties called against them (39) and fourth in red zone touchdown efficiency (70.4%).
In short Kansas City is not a team that’s going to beat themselves, which puts an onus on the Bills to play error free football on Sunday.
“This team is extremely efficient,” said head coach Doug Marrone in his weekly Coffee with the Coach segment on Buffalobills.com. “They’re not going to beat themselves. We’re going to have to play well in all three phases to beat this team. When you see their offense, defense and special teams playing that way it’s going to take all three phases of our team to beat them. That’s our challenge. We’ll have a good sense of where we are.”
