BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — When the Buffalo Bills take on the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday, three players could be a big factor.

Linebacker Matt Milano missed the Bills' week six meeting with the Chiefs and as a result, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce had two touchdowns against the Bills secondary. Milano's return could be a big factor in shutting down a big weapon for Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes.

Offensive lineman Jon Feliciano also missed the week six match-up after suffering an injury before the season began that placed him on injured reserve. Feliciano will go up against defensive tackle Chris Jones, who had an easy time against then starter, Brian Winters.

Wide Receiver Stefon Diggs has been solid all season as a weapon for Bills QB Josh Allen. While he can produce, he can also serve as a distraction for some of the other weapons on the Bills offense like John Brown, Cole Beasley, and Gabriel Davis. Sometimes, teams have double-teamed Diggs to take some of that production away, which could open up doors for some of the other guys.
