This wasn’t one of their best games even though Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds combined for 20 total tackles in this game. The big reason is that they struggled to contain tight end Travis Kelce, who once again had a big game against the Bills.

This week was supposed to be different with Milano on the field, who is considered one of the better pass coverage linebackers in the game. However, Kelce still finished with eight receptions, 96 receiving yards, and a touchdown. This is something the Buffalo Bills are going to need to find an answer for because Milano isn’t it.

Grade: C-


The Buffalo Bills secondary did a good job making Patrick Mahomes work for everything through the field. Then the final two minutes and overtime would hit and Mahomes would pick this secondary part with him throwing for 188 passing yards and two touchdowns.

Outside of the Tampa Bay game earlier this season, this was the first game where the Buffalo Bills desperately could have used Tre’Davious White. The combination of Levi Wallace and Dane Jackson has played well but this game they looked overmatched and struggled against the speed of Tyreek Hill and Byron Pringle.
