Last time out, the Kansas City Chiefs hosted the Oakland Raiders and, surprisingly, lost 40-32. The Kansas City defense had no answer for the Raiders offense as the Chiefs gave up a double-digit lead two times throughout the day. Patrick Mahomes threw for 340 yards, two touchdowns, one interception, and added an additional 21 yards and touchdown on the ground. Tight End Travis Kelce led all Chiefs receivers with eight receptions for 108 yards and one touchdown.
The Buffalo Bills visited the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday night and came away with a 42-16 defeat. This was a weird week for both teams and the Titans clearly handled it better than Buffalo. Tennessee never trailed in this game and led by double figures for the second half. Josh Allen threw for 263 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. Stefon Diggs balled out with 10 receptions and 106 yards on the night.
Series History: Kansas City has won three of the last four meetings between these two, but Buffalo leads the all-time series 26-21-1.
NFL Predictions: I like the Buffalo Bills to rebound and cover the 3.5-point spread at home.
