Red zone mistakes cost both teams points in the first quarter

This game was expected to be a high-scoring game between two of the top offenses in the league. Both teams looked great on their opening drives until they got into the red zone.

The Bills started the game on offense and drove right down the field with a good mix of pass and run. They found themselves in a 2nd and 6 situation at the 13-yard line before the Bills appeared to call an option play between Josh Allen and Isaiah McKenzie.

However, there was a miscommunication and McKenzie appeared like he wasn’t expecting the toss and the Chiefs would recover the fumble.

It would be the Chiefs’ turn to drive down the field but on a 3rd and goal, Patrick Mahomes would force a throw that rookie Kaiir Elam would come down with the interception. This kept the scoring down early as both teams were kept off the scoreboard in the first quarter.
