Hey look, it’s the Bills again! This is the eight consecutive year these two teams have played each other, something that has to be a record at this point for non-divisional foes. The last two years have belonged to the Chiefs, who, in each of the contests, won in hideous fashion. Who can forget beating Jeff Tuel with two defensive touchdowns?

Under new head coach Rex Ryan, Buffalo’s defense will be scarier than ever. The front four of Mario Williams, Kyle Williams, Marcell Dareus and Jerry Hughes is the best in football, causing Kansas City all sorts of problems last season. If the Chiefs are going to beat Buffalo again, the offensive line better be on its game.

Offensively, the Bills are much improved although still lacking where it matters most: quarterback. EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel are going to battle for the starting job, perhaps the most depressing sentence you will ever read. LeSean McCoy is the star of the show, with decent supporting cast in Percy Harvin, Sammy Watkins and Fred Jackson.
