Kansas City Chiefs vs. Buffalo Bills | NFL – Oct. 10, 2021
The main event of the fifth week of the NFL will be played by the two best AFC teams, namely the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills. With his arrival in Kansas, Andy Reid turned over a new leaf of that franchise, and with the appearance of Patrick Mahomes, it was clear that historical days would follow. One of the most talented players ever seen brought the Chiefs title in 2019, only to lose in the SuperBowl last season to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. During the summer, they decided to completely change the offensive line and it is obvious that it will take some time for them to play with Mahomes. What is clear, the quality is not disputable, the Chiefs are the best team in terms of talent, probably in the entire league, and they are the favorites against every rival at home.
The Buffalo Bills managed to be competitive for some 20 minutes against the Kansas City Chiefs in the conference finals last season. Then Mahomes played in his own style and the winner was decided very quickly. Between the two seasons, the Bills have further strengthened their wide receiver players, with an already proven defense and more than solid protection that quarterback Josh Allen has. It took the offense two weeks to work out in the right way, but when that happened, all the power was felt by the Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans. The Bills come to Kansas City with two goals. The first is to defeat the biggest rival, and the second is to go for a two-win advantage, with a better mutual ratio that would lead to the possibility of playing the play-offs at home if the road intersects them with the Chiefs as expected.
The Chiefs have almost no absences in this match. The only question is whether Chris Jones and Charvarius Ward will be ready to play.
The biggest problem for the Buffalo Bills will be the absence of Matt Milano who would be of great benefit against the Chiefs. He trained on Friday night, but rumors are that he will still not be able to help his teammates. The performance of Taiwan Jones is also questionable.
Previous results and H2H
The Kansas City Chiefs unexpectedly have a 2-2 ratio after four weeks. They lost to divisional rivals the Los Angeles Chargers and the Baltimore Ravens which means they have no right to stumble if they want to end up at the top of the AFC once again.
The Buffalo Bills unexpectedly lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first week, after which they routinely beat the Miami Dolphins, Washington Football Team and Houston Texans.
Both last season’s matches between the Chiefs and the Bills were won by the Chiefs.
Pick: Kansas City Chiefs -2 handicap
Too much analysis is not needed here. The Chiefs play at home, in a situation where they have to win. In previous years, they would always win in such situations. Quality is on their side, while the Bills showed certain weaknesses against the Steelers.
