This Sunday at 4:25 p.m. the AFC’s top squads the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills face off in Kansas City. This Chiefs-Bills matchup should be one of the best games this season.
Both teams come into week six of the NFL season 4-1 but have seen their fair share of close wins. The Chiefs are coming off of a 30-29 Monday Night Football victory against the division rival Raiders. The Bills are coming off of quite the opposite, as they smashed the Pittsburgh Steelers with a score of 38-3.
This is the game that every NFL fan has had circled on their calendar since the schedules have come out. Last year in the AFC Divisional round these two teams put on an offensive show and the result was possibly the game of the year. Kansas City ultimately come out on top 42-36 as this game made many question the NFL’s overtime rules.
The Bills will enter this game banged up especially on the defensive side as four impact players including Tremaine Edmunds are listed as questionable. That will not bode well against this Chiefs offense as they have scored 40-plus points twice already this season.
The offenses will be fun to watch as both quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen are playing at an MVP level and have no shortage of weapons. The Chiefs secondary might have a hard time slowing down Bills receivers Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis as they have proved to be a dynamic one two punch.
Mahomes’ new receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling have yet to produce big time numbers as they have zero touchdowns through five weeks. Thankfully the Chiefs have tight end Travis Kelce who scored four times last week and has seven total touchdowns on the year.
Both Mahomes and Allen are set to put on a show Sunday afternoon. This game may have some major playoff implications as both teams are fighting for that number one seed in the AFC. Whichever team comes out on top will most likely have home field advantage through the playoffs and have home field for a possible rematch. Needless to say that this is a very important game.
In TGH’s offseason prediction article, it was predicted that the Bills will get their sweet revenge in Arrowhead Stadium. But as of today the Chiefs have gone through more close team wins and have found ways to win in tough situations. This will be a very exciting high scoring game and with multiple injuries to the Bills defense, Kansas City should prevail in this Chiefs Bills matchup.
