Tale of the tape
Week 2: Kansas City Chiefs At Buffalo Bills
|The Chiefs got a decent performance out of Matt Cassel in Week One against the Falcons, but it paled compared to Matt Ryan’s. While Cassel does not have the strongest arm, he is an accurate passer and a smart leader.||Quarterback||Ryan Fitzpatrick is not the most physically gifted quarterback but he is smart and usually an accurate passer. He had little chance in the Bills’ Week One loss to the Jets.|
|The Chiefs have versatility thanks to the presence of Jamal Charles and Dexter McCluster. The Chiefs have an explosive big-play receiver in Dwayne Bowe and a decent offensive line.||Offense||The Bills got off to a slow start against the Jets and running back Fred Jackson went down with a knee injury. C.J. Spiller is likely to take over at the running back slot. Stevie Johnson will try to exploit the Kansas City defense.|
|The Chiefs were exposed against the Falcons as they had no answers for Matt Ryan. They need Tamba Hali to give them a pass rush and they also need more competent play from a secondary that played far beneath expectations.||Defense||The Bills were hoping they could improve on the defensive end when they signed Mario Williams to be their top pass rusher. They got no early dividends, but defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt knows how to get results and this unit should improve.|
|The Chiefs should have a solid return game this year with Javier Arenas and Dexter McCluster handling punt and kickoff return duties. Ryan Succop is one of the best clutch kickers in the league.||Special Teams||This should be a strength for the Bills. Rian Lindell is a consistent kicker when he’s healthy and punter Brian Moorman is a solid directional punter.|
