2. Continue to spread the ball around

It is no lie that the Chiefs lack a dynamic wide receiving group. They currently rank 29th in the league in passing yards. However, despite this disheartening fact, the Chiefs have been able to move the ball around to different receivers and have talent, it is just underused. We all know that head coach Andy Reid loves to throw the ball, and the West Coast Offense runs on that fact. The Bills do have a decent back end and rank 13th in pass defense, and have the most interceptions in the league with 12. But the Bills have also not faced a quarterback like Alex Smith who minimizes mistakes.

Smith and Co. need to not only find a way to move the ball around to different receivers but play mistake-free football like they have been. Look for players like tight end Travis Kelce to be more heavily involved in the passing game. Kelce has the speed and the skills to get the yards after the catch and will be the Chiefs’ X-factor not names Charles. Dwayne Bowe has been surprising of late with his more reliable hands — though he did have a bad drop Sunday. He numbers may not be as good as Watkins but Smith has been throwing the ball more toward him in the past few games. Spreading the ball around will help take the pressure off of the Chiefs running backs and should lead to a victory.
