The 49ers (1-4) play the Buffalo Bills (3-2) on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.

The matchup also marks the second time Kelly was coach against his former running back in Philadelphia, LeSean McCoy. McCoy, of course, questioned Kelly’s motives for releasing all of the “good, black players the fastest” while being the head coach of the Eagles.
