Bills strike first, take 7-0 lead vs. Chiefs


The underdog Bills have taken the early lead against the unbeaten Chiefs.

Quarterback Jeff Tuel, making his first NFL start, connected on a 59-yard touchdown with fellow rookie Marquise Goodwin to give Buffalo a 7-0 first-quarter lead at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The TD pass was Tuel’s first in regular-season play. He’s getting the start Sunday with Thad Lewis and EJ Manuel both inactive with injuries. Goodwin, meanwhile, continues to show big-play ability. He’s now caught a pair of TD passes for Buffalo.

The visiting Chiefs have not had a smooth start. The Bills racked 139 yards on their first two drives, and a Buffalo punt return touchdown by Leodis McKelvin was nullified by penalty.

  1. Alex Smith wants to know what kind of pass that was; he says it looked weird because it went forward.

  2. Yet AGAIN ANOTHER backup QB… This time they get a ROOKIE 3rd string… Can the chiefs get any LUCKIER?? Lol and STILL no points as of 8:18 in the 2nd…

  3. Regardless of the outcome the Bills have a lot to be confident about. Undrafted rookie essentially 4th string QB when you consider Kolbs preseason injury and they’re only the 2nd team to halftime lead on 8-0 KC. Past Bills teams would have folded with all the injury adversity they’ve had this year. Not under this coaching regime though. Bright future for this Buffalo franchise who needs it as much as anyone.
