No short week for the Buffalo Bills before the Kansas City Chiefs Game

Without question, the biggest game on the schedule for the Buffalo Bills is a road game against the Kansas City Chiefs. This is a game with plenty of storylines with none bigger than it is a rematch of an incredible AFC Divisional Round playoff game that saw it go back and forth a number of times in the closing minutes and eventually go to overtime.

These are two teams that once again will be competing for playoff spots but this game carries a little extra importance because they will likely be fighting for seeding within the playoffs. The winner of this contest gets a distinct advantage as the head-to-head matchup is a tiebreaker if that is needed.

That is why for the Buffalo Bills it is important that they are not playing the Chiefs on a short week. This could be a result of the game being scheduled on Thursday night, which doesn’t seem likely, or Buffalo could have a Monday night game ahead of a matchup with the Chiefs.

The Buffalo Bills would like to avoid either scenario before a game with this much riding on it.
