Chiefs beat Bills: Ron Parker's best game of his career comes at a perfect time

Big time play from Chiefs CB Ron Parker.

The Kansas City Chiefs can give a big thank you to Ron Parker for their 17-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. The win moved the Chiefs to 6-3 on the season but it was also Parker's best game of his career.

Parker made a number of big time plays that helped the Chiefs stop the Bills.

"I have to point to Parker and the job he did," Reid said. "We asked that kid to play everywhere, and he's such a competitor."

Perhaps his biggest play came when Bills RB Bryce Brown was running towards the end zone for what looked like a long touchdown run. But Parker came in behind Brown just yards before the goal line and stripped the ball, forcing a fumble. The ball bounced out of the end zone, which is a touchback, and gave possession back to the Chiefs. Parker saved the Chiefs seven points on that play.

That was a huge play but there's an argument it wasn't even his biggest play. Parker knocked down three passes near the end zone late in the game as the Bills were driving for a possible game winning touchdown. I was speechless watching him bat down ball after ball.

Folks were gushing about his plays because it seems they came at the absolutely perfect times.

Parker was covering Bills star WR Sammy Watkins for much of the day because the Chiefs wanted his speed on Watkins.

The Chiefs secondary was thought to be a weakness coming into this season but Parker was part of the solution on Sunday. Parker played so well during Eric Berry's absence that the Chiefs had to keep him on the field. They gave him no choice.

Congrats to Parker on the biggest game of his career.
