Bills

Last week, the Bills went into their game against the Chiefs facing a defense that was one of the stingiest in the league in terms of receiving production from opposing running backs. On average, opposing ball-carries were catching 3.8 passes for 23.5 yards per game against Kansas City. Buffalo's duo of LeSean McCoy and Travaris Cadet amassed 51 receiving yards on se…

Cornerback E.J. Gaines has become an impactful member of the Bills defense, and his positive influence was on full display in Week 12 in Kansas City. Against the Chiefs, Gaines received a +1.1 overall grade, which included a +1.1 grade in coverage, grades which ranked 25th and 22nd respectively out of 104 qualifying cornerbacks. He was thrown at a whopping nine times…

Tyrod Taylor wasn't spectacular in the Bills win over Kansas City in Week 12, but he was efficient enough, particularly in the first half. Against the Chiefs, Taylor had a passer rating of 111.5 on throws between 10-19 yards to the left and completed his only attempt in that same range to the right for 33 yards. Over the middle at that distance he had a passer rating of…

 Zay Jones experienced a trying start to his rookie year, but he seems to have started to establish a connection with Tyrod Taylor. In the first eight games of the year, Jones reeled in just 10 of 32 targets (14 were catchable, meaning he had four drops) for 115 yards and one of his targets was intercepted. That passer rating? 30.0. Yikes. In his last 2.5 games wit…

Tyrod Taylor returned to the Bills starting lineup with a somewhat efficient albeit unspectacular day passing from inside the pocket in Buffalo's victory over the Chiefs. In Week 12, Taylor connected on 18 of 27 passes (66.6 percent) of his inside-the-pocket throws for 172 yards (6.37 yards per attempt) without a touchdown or interception. That was good for a passer rat…

Against the Chiefs, Buffalo's 2017 first-round pick allowed two catches for 19 yards on five passes thrown in his target area.

In the Buffalo Bills' win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 12, LeSean McCoy and Buffalo's ground game was exceptionally hit-or-miss. McCoy carried the ball 22 times in Kansas City, and 10 of those rushes went for either no gain or negative yardage. He totaled 64 yards on his other 12 carries (5.33 yards per rush). As a receiver, he accumulated 30 yards on four cat…

While he hasn't had a Marcell Dareus-type of impact on the Buffalo Bills run defense of late, Deandre Coleman has quietly been a key facet in Buffalo's recent improvement against opposing ground games. Since the two defensive breakdowns against the Saints and Jets, the Bills have allowed 201 yards on 54 carries (3.72 yards per carry) in outings against the Los Angeles C…

The Buffalo Bills made it clear they wanted to incorporate running backs into the passing game in 2017, and the recent addition of Travaris Cadet has undoubtedly helped Buffalo's ball carriers maintain their efficiency as receivers this season. Over the past two weeks — he made his Bills debut against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11 — Cadet has averaged 2.50 yards p…

Bills

The Kansas City Chiefs' 5-0 start seems like a distant memory as they lost for the fifth time in six games and the offense continued to struggle. Give credit to the Bills' defense for this stat: 2-for-13. That is 15.3 percent. That was the Chief's conversion rate on third down. KC was 1-for-11 at one point and then converted to prolong its final drive in the closing …

Bills

The Bills usage of their running backs in the passing game and the Chiefs defense against pass-catching running back — something has got to give on Sunday. Heading into Week 12, the Chiefs are tied with the Seahawks for the lowest amount of catches (38) to running backs. They've also given up the fewest receiving yards to running backs (235) and have yet to surrendered …

On throws to his left beyond 10 yards, Taylor completed two of three passes for 45 yards with one touchdown. Beyond 20 yards down the middle of the field and to the right, he failed to complete a pass on five attempts. Taylor finished his one half of play wi…
