Buffalo Bills: 4 starters who missed first matchup with Kansas City Chiefs
The Buffalo Bills already faced the Kansas City Chiefs once this season. The game took place back in Week 6 and the Chiefs did come away with the win by a final score of 26-17.
At this point in the season, the Bills were dealing with a number of injuries and had a few key starters missing. Since that game, they have gotten them back into the starting lineup and the difference is evident with 11 wins in the past 12 games and won by an average of 14.2 points per game.
These are four starters that will be playing this week for the Buffalo Bills that weren’t on the field in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
While he isn’t a big part of the offense, Dawson Knox has made the most of his targets in recent weeks. He particularly has become a red zone threat for this offense and has three touchdowns since Week 13.
Knox is the most athletic tight end the Bills have and does give them a threat in the middle of the field. As teams continue to give more attention to players like Stefon Diggs, John Brown, and Cole Beasley, it creates opportunities for Knox.
In Week 6, the Bills had Tyler Kroft as their starting tight end and he finished with one reception for seven yards on two targets. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Knox get a few more targets against the Chiefs.
