Where have the Kansas City Chiefs come from? I looked away for just a moment and they have gone from 1-5 to 6-5 and very much in command of their fate. The playoffs suddenly look like a very realistic possibility for Andy Reid’s team.

It doesn’t seem to matter who the Chiefs play at running back. Fact is they are committed to running the football, and this played right into the hands of third-string Spencer Ware. Ware had 19 carries for 114 yards and a touchdown. Charcandrick West’s injury apparently didn’t matter for Kansas City.

The Bills put up a tough challenge and looked capable of winning the game. Tyrod Taylor threw three touchdown passes, two of which went to second-year receiver Sammy Watkins, who had a huge day.

Next: No. 5
