Nobody wants to get in the way of the Kansas City Chiefs right now, who have come storming back from 1-5 to 6-5. They are red hot and took down the Buffalo Bills, no matter how hard they fought.

Rex Ryan’s team can take plenty of positives away from the game, however. Tyrod Taylor threw for three touchdowns, two to second-year receiver Sammy Watkins and the other to LeSean McCoy. Watkins looked great in this game, and he’s proving to be a real deep threat for Buffalo.

The Bills are still very much in the wild-card race, and there are plenty of winnable games left on the schedule. I can’t help but pencil in that Week 17 showdown with the New York Jets as a possible playoff decider.

Next: No. 13
