Bills at Chiefs: 5 storylines to watch for in Week 14

The Buffalo Bills will turn the page of their 2023 NFL season to Week 14 and the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Bills (6-6) are fresh off their bye week and a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles prior to that. Buffalo will hope get back to their winning ways in Kansas City, however, the Chiefs (8-4) will be no pushover as there is plenty on the line ahead of this matchup.

But before we even get to kickoff, there will be a lot of Bills-related discussions and conversations to be had throughout the coming days.

With that, here are five storylines to watch for during the lead up to Bills vs. Chiefs on Sunday:

If the Bills don’t win, their playoff hopes could be gone. And this isn’t dramatic, either. With a loss, the Bills would be under .500 and their AFC conference record, a huge tiebreaker, would be 3-6. That’s a mountain that would be near impossible to climb.

Having spread some doubt above, the Bills are a perfect 6-0 since 2017 when Sean McDermott was hired as head coach. Whatever he typically does over the bye, works, so that’s a big positive.

Another round of Allen vs. Mahomes

The Bills at Chiefs means Josh Allen at Patrick Mahomes, essentially. Between the coaches, both defenses, and the quarterback themselves, another round in this head-to-head AFC rivalry will be a talking point all week.

Allen is 2-1 in the regular season against Kansas City in career… but 0-2 in the playoffs.

A lot of news revolving Von Miller has gone on in Bills land lately. Arrested for assaulting a pregnant woman, a felony in Dallas, Miller is with the team this week as preparations for the Chiefs clash approaches.

General manager Brandon Beane said he is available to play in Kansas City. We’ll see if any backlash changes their mind,.

Health out of the bye
