ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) — The pieces of the puzzle just didn't come together for the Buffalo Bills on Monday evening. They were never really out of the game, but couldn't capitalize when they needed to in the 26-17 loss.
The Bills were on the board first with a Tyler Bass field goal in the first quarter. But Buffalo's only lead was short-lived thanks to Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. He gashed the Bills for two first half scores.
Buffalo had a chance to tie the game up going into the locker rooms, though. Kelce fumbled along the sideline with less than a minute until halftime.
But Tyler Bass missed his second field goal attempt of the day wide right. The Chiefs led 13-10 after two quarters.
After that, Kansas City's running game took over. The Chiefs averaged over five yards per carry as a team while rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire ran for 161 yards.
A fourth quarter touchdown from Cole Beasley brought the game within one score, but the Bills couldn't complete a comeback late.
Buffalo still leads the AFC East by one game through six weeks. After facing two of the toughest opponents they'll see in 2020, they hit the road to play the New York Jets at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.
