Aside from their running game, Kansas City has had much help from its defense. Kansas City’s defense ranks 4th in pass defense, and 11th in run defense, according to ESPN.
Lucky for them, they might be playing against a Bills team that won’t have its starting quarterback, again. With EJ Manuel missing the last few weeks due to injury, Thad Lewis has had to step in under center. Well, Lewis was injured on the first play from scrimmage last week, and it seems as though he won’t get the nod to start on Sunday against the Chiefs because of it.
The Bills are also down on running backs, with C.J. Spiller potentially missing time with an injury, and back up Fred Jackson banged up as well. However, Jackson is expected to play. UPDATE: C.J. Spiller is expected to play on Sunday against the Chiefs.
The Chiefs are 3 point favorites to win this match up, but this could be a harder decision to make than some might think. The over under is 40 points, which doesn’t seem unreasonable either.
I like the Chiefs in this match up; I think they will leave Buffalo undefeated. Kansas City’s defense has to be licking their chops for this game, as I think they could score some points for themselves.
