The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs will play on Fox in a rare Monday night game for the network. It is the Chiefs’ third game on a Monday and the first for the Bills.
The Chefs (4-1) are coming off their first loss of the season in which Las Vegas pulled off the upset in 40-32 fashion. Patrick Mahomes looked mortal for the first time in what seems like forever. It was the first time in Mahomes’ career that the quarterback lost by more than seven points. Despite 138 yards rushing in Week 1 for rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire, he and the Chiefs have struggled to get the run game going this year. Edwards-Helaire hasn’t rushed for more than 52 yards since his NFL debut. Kansas City signed Le’Veon Bell this week, but he will be unavailable for the game.
Buffalo (4-1) has to play the Chiefs on a short week after losing to Tennessee on Tuesday. Josh Allen entered Week 5 as one of a handful of MVP candidates but threw a pair of interceptions against the Titans, cooling some of the momentum he built through four weeks. A big factor in the game against the Chiefs will be the status of cornerback Tre’Davious White, who missed Tuesday’s game. The Bills’ secondary needed White to slow down Tennessee’s A.J. Brown, and he will be crucial in limiting the success of Mahomes.
The teams haven’t met since 2017 when Buffalo defeated Kansas City 16-10. Both teams have divisional matchups in the following weeks.
