Bills Fall in OT – Again – this time 13-10 to the Chiefs


They had their shots, but at the end of the day, a loss is a loss.

That’s the way the Bills have to feel today after losing on the last play of OT to the Kansas City Chiefs 13-10 at Arrowhead Stadium. The loss puts Buffalo at 0-7.

“It hurts,” coach Chan Gailey said. “You can’t explain it. It makes you sick in your gut. I feel bad for our guys, because they’re trying, they’re playing hard. We’re just not getting it done. I’ve got to teach us to get over the hump.”

Ryan Succop kicked a 35-yard field on the last play of overtime to get the Chiefs to 5-2 on the season. The Bills looked like they won the game in OT as Rian Lindell kicked what would have been a 53-yard game-winner earlier in the overtime.

The kick was nullified because the Chiefs had called time out. His second try was a wobbler in the wind that struck the right upright and gave the Chiefs a shot to go out and win it.

“It’s kind of a goofy deal, but it is what it is,” Lindell said. “I just wanted to hit a good ball. I didn’t really, and then they said time out and I tried it again. I just got way too much turf on it. I wasn’t hitting a very good ball all day and that was a good example of that.”

The Chiefs ran all over the worst rush defense, going for 274 yards. Jamaal Charles piled up 177 yards on 22 carries. He also had 61 yards on four catches, including a 16-yard catch to start the winning 53-yard drive.
Thomas Jones had 77 yards on 19 carries as the Chiefs went over 200 yards three games in a row for the first time since 1978.

Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw an interception at the Kansas City 27-yard line with 25 seconds left in regulation. The Bills needed only about 10 more yards to get in good position for a field goal. They also had little offense after having a big week last week vs the Ravens.

They managed just 58 yards in the first half against the Chiefs. But the Bills found a rhythm in the third quarter, taking the second-half kickoff and holding the ball for 15 plays en route to a Lindell field goal that pulled them within 7-3.

The team is 0-7 for the first time since 1984. It’s the first time in their history they have lost back-to-back overtime games. Next week they play in Toronto vs the Bears.
