It is week 9 and the Bills are facing off against the 8-0 Kansas City Chiefs. In turn we faced off against the flagship for Fansided, Arrowhead Addict. The man at the helm, Andrew Kulha answered a couple of questions for us about this weeks match-up. See what he had to say.
1. Has Alex Smith been the answer to the Chiefs success this year?
No. Smith not has been the answer. He has been one of many answers. This organization changed everything from the general manager, to the coach and quarterback. I’d give Andy Reid a ton of credit for bringing it all together under one voice and banner, but this 8-0 start has been a complete organization effort.
2. I have heard rumors that the Chiefs being 8-0 is cause for them playing teams that are missing some of their better players and not being a true 8-0 team as their record shows. What is your take on this?
Those aren’t rumors. Those are just poorly formed opinions. You can’t choose who you play in the NFL, and you can’t control who’s out on the field for them when you do meet up. The Chiefs are just going out there and playing the hand they’ve been dealt. I firmly believe no win comes easy in the NFL—no matter who’s on the field for the opposition.
3. Who has been the biggest disappointment so far, halfway through the season.
There are not really many disappointing players on an 8-0 team, for good reason. I’m a bit disappointed that Knile Davis hasn’t had as many opportunities to spell Jamaal Charles and show what he can do at running back. But with Charles playing as good as he is, there’s little reason to take him out.
4. What are three keys for that the Bills need to do to pull a win out against the Chiefs?
1. Stop the run and contain Jamaal Charles out of the backfield as a receiver.
2. Play exceptional in pass protection.
3. Limit Dexter McCluster both on offense and on special teams.
5. What are your predictions for the game? And why?
Unfortunately, I don’t see the Bills backup quarterback, Jeff Tuel, having much success against this Chiefs offense.
Chiefs: 33, Bills: 17
