In Week 6, the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs never really gained an advantage or were able to pull away from their opponent. The two teams would be tied at zero after the first quarter, at 10 at halftime, and then tied at 17 after the third quarter.
However, in the fourth quarter, the Chiefs would break that tie with a field goal and had a 20-17 lead. The Buffalo Bills would be able to answer and make the plays down the stretch to take back the lead and ultimately secure the win.
While there were a number of notable plays in the final quarter, it was one defensive play that put the Buffalo Bills in the position to win the game.
Breaking down the turning point for the Buffalo Bills in Week 6
In the first drive after the Chiefs took the lead in the fourth quarter, the Bills’ offense couldn’t get much going. After an 11-yard run by Devin Singletary, the offense would go backward and be forced to punt back to Kansas City.
At this point of the game, it was midway in the fourth quarter and the Chiefs had a great chance to eat up the clock. If they were to score a touchdown on this drive, it would give them a two-score lead.
However, the defense rose to the occasion and on third down, the Bills big free agent acquisition Von Miller made exactly the play the team hoped he would make when they signed him. He would come up with a sack on Patrick Mahomes that forced the Chiefs to punt.
The Bills would get the ball back and Josh Allen was able to lead the offense down the field for a touchdown and the lead.
The sack by Von Miller though ended the Chiefs drive early and left plenty of time that the offense didn’t feel like they had to rush and could run their offense. It was the one play that was the turning point in a game between two very evenly matched teams and the Buffalo Bills now head into their bye we. k with a 5-1 record.
