The defense that led the Bills to a 5-2 start re-emerged Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs finished with 236 net yards, including 57 on the ground. They had 14 first downs and were 2-for-13 on third down.
That performance came after the Bills allowed at least 47 points in consecutive games for the first time in franchise history and gave up 482 yards to the Saints and 429 yards to the Chargers.
“It got lost," linebacker Matt Milano said of the defense the Bills played at the start of the season, "but it’s back. We’re back.”
“We had good week of practice. Everybody was locked in. We just came out here and executed.”
Safety Micah Hyde said despite the view that the defense was in shambles, the players remained confident they could rebound.
"We knew what we had to do," he said. "Our confidence was always there. We weren’t down. We gave up a lot of points in the previous three games. We knew that coming in. But, in our preparation, we stuck to the same stuff. We knew what we had to do. We kept it basic and came out with the win.”
