This time, defense difference for Bills
In putting the finishing touches on the Bills’ most resonating win of the season, cornerback Tre’Davious White made his way to the sideline after recovering Patrick Mahomes’ fumble with a message to the few Chiefs fans who remained. “Bye-bye,” White, left, said, waving his hand. In the pouring rain at Arrowhead Stadium, White and the Bills enjoyed a cleansing moment in closing out a 38-20 victory in the early hours of Monday morning. Over a thunderstorm-delayed outing, the Bills offense and defense were lights out in vanquishing the one opponent who stood in their way of reaching the Super Bowl last season. The 38 points matched the Chiefs’ output in a 38-24 win over the Bills in the AFC championship game in January. Josh Allen’s 315 yards passing and three touchdowns mirrored Mahomes’ 325-yard, three-TD outing the last time they met. And this time, the Bills defense flexed its muscles by forcing four takeaways after wilting in two losses to the Chiefs last season, including a 26-17 decision in October. The Bills improved to 4-1, while the Chiefs fell to 2-3.
