The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Buffalo Bills 13-10 on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs finished it off in overtime and walked away with the victory so there's a positive vibe in KC today. As there always is, there were plenty of good stats for the Chiefs against the Bills.
Here are five good stats on the game and our game ball of the week.
That's the total amount of rushing yards for the Chiefs on Sunday against the Bills. They were able to move the ball up and down the field despite the passing game being non-existent. Somehow, they didn't score a rushing touchdown but they were still able to control the game through the rushing attack.
Jamaal Charles ended with 177 and Thomas Jones had 77. There weren't any huge runs as the Chiefs consistently beat the Bills on the ground.
That's the number of forced fumbles for the Chiefs. Yeah, they didn't recover any of them but it shows they're going after the ball trying to create turnovers.
If you create three forced fumbles in a game I imagine more often than not you'll recover at least one of them.
That's the number of punts Dustin Colquitt put inside the 20 yard line. He was impressive on Sunday and was one of the unsung heroes for the Chiefs. They controlled the field position throughout the game and Colquitt was a big part of that. Three of his six punts went inside the Bills 20 yard line.
As a reference, Bills punter Brian Moorman had none of his seven punts go inside the Chiefs 20 yard line.
Another three. The Chiefs sacked Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick three times on Sunday. Tamba Hali came up with half those adding to his season total. The Chiefs pass rush flushed Fitzpatrick out of the pocket several times -- he had six rushes in the game -- and they were consistent throughout the day.
I was happy with the pass rush on Sunday.
That is the Bills average gain per play on offense. The Bills couldn't run the ball consistently getting 137 yards on 33 carries. It's Ryan Fitzpatrick's six carries and 43 yards that are pumping that number up. After him the best rushing day came from Fred Jackson who had 64 yards on 20 carries. The Bills had 48 pass attempts and completed half of them for 223 yards. The Chiefs, for the most part, played tough defense and didn't give up a big play.

Could it be anyone other than Jamaal Charles? He ended with 177 on the ground and 61 receiving yards. That guy was good on Sunday.
