Buffalo Bills (5-5) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-9)
Sunday, November 23, 2008, 1PM EST - Arrowhead Stadium

This game is the 40th overall meeting between the Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs/ Dallas Texans Franchise. The Bills hold the edge all time 21-18. This is also the 5th time in the last 6 meetings (counting this one) that the game has been in K.C.

September 14, 1997: Chiefs 22, Bills 16
Todd Collins threw for 297 yards and a TD to Andre Reed, but was just 22 of 43 passing and tossed two picks. Tamarick Vanover returned a kickoff 94 yards for a TD and Elvis Grbac hit Tony Richardson with a 1 yard TD pass late in the fourth to give the Chiefs the win.

November 19, 2000: Bills 21, Chiefs 17
QB Elvis Grbac (341 yards, 2 TDs), WR Derrick Alexander (7-146) and TE Tony Gonzalez (9-76, 2 TDs) all had big days for the Chiefs. Rob Johnson, however, had a bigger day, connecting with Eric Moulds and Jay Riemersma for scores and scrambling for another to give the Bills the win.

November 17, 2002: Chiefs 17, Bills 16
This game was even right down the line. Total yards: Bills 344, Chiefs 320. Rushing Yards: Bills 133, Chiefs 128. Passing Yards: Bills 211, Chiefs 192. The difference? The Bills had 13 penalties for 139 yards to K.C.'s 5 for 39. Despite the penalties the Bills had a 16-10 lead heading into the final quarter, but a 9-yard TD scramble from Trent Green gave the Chiefs the win. If I'm not mistaken, Drew Bledsoe just missed hitting Peerless Price for a long score down the left sideline that would have given the Bills the win.

October 26, 2003: Chiefs 38, Bills 5
The Bills started out well, blocking a punt through the end zone for a safety; it was all down hill from there. Trent Green hit Dante Hall for a 67 yard TD score, and Priest Holmes took over from there with 3 TD runs. Drew Bledsoe was picked off 3 times and Alex Van Pelt added 2 more of his own.  Ugly.

November 13, 2005: Bills 14, Chiefs 3
J.P. Losman, in relief of injured then-starter Kelly Holcomb, hit Lee Evans for 2 TD passes (33 yards & 29 yards). The Bills picked off Trent Green 3 times and sacked him 6 times.  Both Lawrence Tynes and Rian Lindell missed 2 field goals each.
