ORCHARD PARK, NY (WKBW) - The Buffalo Bills put up 470 yards of total offense including 241 on the ground but fall to the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs 23-13 at Ralph Wilson Stadium Sunday.
17 of the Chiefs 23 points came off of turnovers, and 14 were put up by the defense. The Kansas City offense managed just 210 yards and failed to get the ball in the end zone against the Buffalo defense.
The Bills opened the scoring in the first quarter on a 59-yard bomb from Jeff Tuel to rookie speedster Marquise Goodwin. They would carry a 10-3 lead into the half.
On the first play of the third quarter, CJ Spiller broke 61-yard run down to the Chiefs' 19. Later in the drive on third-and-goal from 1-yard-line, Tuel's pass intended for T.J. Graham gets picked-off by Sean Smith who returned it 100-yards for a touchdown.
The pick-six proved to be a big momentum shifter, as the Bills went from going up by two scores to a tie ball game.
The Chiefs took the lead for good in the fourth after T.J. Graham has the ball knocked out of his hands after a catch inside his own 20, which was picked-up by Tamba Hali who ran it into the Bills end zone untouched.
Kansas City improved to 9-0, while the Bills fall to 3-6. The Bills play the Pittsburgh Steels next Sunday on the road.
