AP Rapid Reaction LIVE: Let’s talk Chiefs and Bills

Let’s talk about Kansas City’s loss to the Buffalo Bills

On Sunday afternoon, the Buffalo Bills entered Arrowhead and defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 20-17.

The Chiefs started the game poorly. On their first drive, a screen pass was tipped up and intercepted by the Bills’ edge rusher A.J. Epenesa — but Buffalo didn’t do much with the turnover; its drive ended in a punt.

Late in the first quarter, running back James Cook scored on a 25-yard pass from Josh Allen for the first points of the game. The Bills never trailed for the remainder of the game.

Because Isiah Pacheco was inactive, Clyde Edwards-Helaire was Kansas City’s lead back. Edwards-Helaire sometimes looked elusive at times as he finished the game with 11 carries for 39 yards — but it was his teammate Jerick Mckinnon who scored the Chiefs’ first touchdown.

Edwards-Helaire’s moment happened in the fourth quarter, leaping over a defender to move deep into the red zone.

In the second half, the Chiefs offense continued to struggle. Deep in the third quarter, Rashee Rice caught a pass, made a football move and the ball was punched out of his hands — but the Kansas City defense bailed out the offense struggles by forcing a three-and-out.

There is a lot of work that still needs to be done to get the Chiefs’ offense on the same page. Wide receivers still can’t separate themselves from defenders, Travis Kelce is less consistent and Mahomes needs to make better decisions.
