Week one of the 2021 season had some Bills fans worried. Buffalo fell to the lowly Steelers 23-16 and left some of Bills Mafia hoping their 2020 season and playoff birth was not just a fluke. But since then the Bills have been on a tear, winning three in a row including two shutouts by their defense, while their offense has scored at least 35 points in each win. 

Bills quarterback Josh Allen has regained the form the thrusted him into the MVP conversation last year. Allen has thrown for nine touchdowns this season to just two interceptions. Stefon Diggs continues to be Allen's favorite target with 26 catches on the season. Veteran wideout Emmanuel Sanders has been a welcomed addition as he has two touchdowns and third-year tight end Dawson Knox has already posted a career high with four touchdowns on the year. 

The Chiefs (2-2) enter this game after a 42-30 win over the Eagles. In that win, Patrick Mahomes threw for five touchdowns on 24-of-30 passing for 278 yards. Three of those touchdown passes were to Tyreke Hill who caught 11 passes in total for 186 yards. Clyde Edwards-Helaire also put up a 100-yard-game rushing for 102 yards on 14 carries. 

This game marks a classic case of teacher vs student as Bills' head coach Sean McDermott coached under Chiefs' head coach Andy Reid for nine seasons in Philadelphia. The two also faced off against each other in last year's AFC Championship game. Kansas City took that game 38-24.

The Chiefs are 3-point favorites against the Bills. The over/under is 56.5. The Bills and Chiefs each come into this game averaging 33.5 points-per-game, trailing only the Cardinals for tops in the NFL.

Bills inactives: Matt Breida (RB), Tommy Doyle (OL), Harrison Phillips (DT), Matt Milano (LB), Vernon Butler (DT)

Chiefs inactives:  Charvarius Ward (CB), Austin Blythe (OL), Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (OG), Daurice Fountain (WR), Noah Gray (TE), Chris Jones (DL)
