Buffalo Bills vs. Kansas City Chiefs News and Notes

A marquee matchup for the weekend’s divisional round, the AFC East champion Buffalo Bills head to Arrowhead Stadium to square off against the AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs in one of the more difficult venues for opposing teams.

Bills quarterback Josh Allen leads a Buffalo offense ranked as the 11th-best (per PFF ), leaning heavily on arm strength in a pass-heavy play-calling scheme (60%/40% pass-to-run play calling ratio). Currently, at 54-points, which is the highest total of the day on FanDuel Sportsbook, Allen should benefit from a distributed receiving corps in Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, Emmanuel Sanders, Gabriel Davis and tight end Dawson Knox, facing an improved, but still suspect Chiefs defense ranked 24th in DVOA (per Football Outsiders). A dual-threat option, Allen also is viable in the running game, seeing 26% of the workload in rushing, only behind Devin Singletary, who has seen a full allotment of rush attempts toward the end of the season. Averaging 11.1 rushing attempts per game and 4.63 yards per carry, expect Singletary to play an integral role in the Bills’ offense, facing a Chiefs defense ranked 20th in rush DVOA.

On the road this season, the Bills are 5-3 against the spread, posting a 5-3 record outright.

The high-powered Kansas City Chiefs offense, led by Patrick Mahomes, ranks as the seventh-best offense, operating as one of the more pass-friendly teams in the league, using a 63%/37% pass-to-run play calling ratio and an up-tempo 26.2 second per snap pace (per RotoViz). With a dynamic receiving corps highlighted by Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, Mahomes should find success in moving the ball down the field, despite facing the top-ranked Bills’ defense, who are first in DVOA. Running back Jerick McKinnon should see split time with Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who returns to action after missing time because of a shoulder injury. Expected to see a full allotment in carries, Edwards-Helaire handles 45% of the share in carries, averaging 11.9 rushing attempts per game and 4.34 yards per carry.

At home this season, the Chiefs are 4-5 against the spread, posting a 7-2 record outright.
