The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs will each look to rebound from disappointing losses in Week 1 when they face off in Buffalo on Sunday.
The Buffalo Bills will host the Kansas City Chiefs at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Both teams head into the contest with an 0-1 record, looking to bounce back from disappointing season-opening losses. Kansas City suffered a 40-24 home loss at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1, while the Bills were trounced by the New York Jets, 48-28.
According to OddsShark.com, the Bills are 3-point favorites, a mark that would likely be higher if the highly touted defense that Buffalo spent much of the offseason bolstering hadn't given up 48 points to a Jets team that scored just one offensive touchdown during the preseason. Injuries to running back Fred Jackson (right knee sprain), the heart and soul of the team, and wide receiver David Nelson (torn right ACL) are going to make things even more difficult for the Bills.
The Chiefs might get some much-needed defensive help from cornerback Brandon Flowers, who could return from a right heel injury to face Buffalo. The Kansas City secondary could use the boost, as Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan torched them for three touchdowns through the air in Week 1.
Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET, and the game will air on CBS. For a detailed national coverage map, click here.
