Josh Allen vs Chiefs defense

When Josh Allen is on top of his game, it doesn’t matter who the opposing defense is. We saw this last week when he put on one of the most incredible performances of all time against a Top 5 statistical defense. Josh now gets to face a Chiefs defense that is below average in most statistical categories, including being dead last in the NFL in yards allowed per drive. Despite ranking 27th in yards allowed, this Chiefs defense ranks eighth in points because they are very opportunistic, forcing 29 turnovers during the regular season. As long as Josh can hold on to the football, he should have no problem tearing this defense to shreds.

The Chiefs have holes in their secondary, and the Bills picked on safety Daniel Sorenson in their regular-season matchup, carving the Chiefs up and down the field. Allen finished with a jarring 21 yards per completion, throwing for 315 yards and three touchdowns on just 15 completions. Allen targeted Sorenson three times, completing two passes for 114 yards and a touchdown.

The Chiefs have some good players on their defense with Chris Jones, Frank Clark, and Tyrann Mathieu. But Josh Allen is better than all of them. If he brings his A-game, the Bills will win this football game.
