After the Kansas City Chiefs’ Week 6 win over the Buffalo Bills, Sean McDermott addressed the Buffalo media. He said that when facing the Kansas City offense “you have to pick your poison” in regards to what you’re trying to take away on defense. Well, they picked their poison, selling out to defend Patrick Mahomes and the explosive passing game. In return, the Chiefs made the Bills pay handsomely for it, to the tune of 245 total rushing yards on the day.

After several weeks of disappointment on the ground, the Chiefs gave their running game a bit more opportunity in this game. Andy Reid explained it wasn’t anything that they specifically identified on film with the Bills, rather that he felt he hadn’t been giving the running game a chance to get going, especially in the second half of Week 5 against the Las Vegas Raiders.

“This is me talking, so I didn’t think I gave the guys enough of a chance last week with it, especially in the second half,” Reid told reporters following the game. “So, we wanted to make sure—you know, we’re best when we have some kind of a balance going. When you can go back and forth, it puts a tremendous amount of pressure on the defense. So, we were able to do both, and we felt like we needed both in this game.”Vhief
