Bills 2nd half takeaways get win over Chiefs -
"Three turnovers by the Bills offense kept it a closer game than it should have been, but a strong defensive takeaway effort by Buffalo coupled with solid rushing from Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch lifted the Bills to a 16-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs."

WGR 550 SportsRadio - Immediate Reactions, Wk14
"Game ball: The offensive line -- This much-maligned unit only allowed two sacks, and pushed the Chiefs around for 5.7 yards-per-carry on 35 attempts. Seriously, give those hogs a hand."

Bills front men excel – Inside The Bills
The Bills defensive front put in a solid effort stopping Matt Cassell on fourth and goal, recording three sacks, and pressured Matt Cassell into throwing an interception.

Scott Pitoniak: Are the Bills losing by winning at this point?
"The reality is that Sunday’s victory against an NFL dreg improved the Bills record to 5-8 but hurt their draft position. So, it can be argued that this win, or any win during the season’s final three games against New England, Atlanta and Indianapolis, would be ugly because it will adversely affect Buffalo’s draft position and hence its ability to bring aboard the talented players it needs to make a true turnaround."

Fewell takes blame for long TD – Inside The Bills
"The only blemish was a 76-yard TD run by Jamaal Charles, but Buffalo’s head coach faulted himself for the result of that play. 'It was a blitz,' said Fewell. 'They caught me in a blitz. I thought I had some tendencies on them and they caught me.'"

Postgame injury update – Inside The Bills
"The Bills came out of Sunday’s game relatively unscathed. TE Shawn Nelson suffered an ankle injury but did return late in the game. OT Jonathan Scott got poked in the eye, but should be fine according to interim head coach Perry Fewell."

Some jump up and down, while others jump for exits : Jerry Sullivan : The Buffalo News
"Sorry, but I can't summon the energy to lavish this team with praise for nipping another bad team and keeping alive the chances of another 7-9 finish. This was the sort of triumph that would have tickled Dick Jauron, an uninspired show where the Bills won by screwing up less than the opponent."

Bills' Jackson chews up Chiefs with extra effort : Buffalo Bills : The Buffalo News
"Fred Jackson spent Sunday afternoon turning what looked like 1-yard gains into 4 yards and 4-yard gains into 8 yards. He led a Bills running game that finished with 200 yards and carried the team to a 16-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs."

Whose INT on final play? Take your pick : Buffalo Bills : The Buffalo News
"Sunday was the Bills' third four-interception game this season. More important was when the interceptions occurred. The last three picks came on the Chiefs' last three possessions, when they were driving."

Moorman lifts teammates with booming punt : Buffalo Bills : The Buffalo News
"With the Bills at their 20-yard line and holding a three-point lead at the end of the third quarter, Moorman uncorked one of the best punts of his NFL career. The ball sliced through the wind, landed at Kansas City's 25 and kept rolling until it stopped at the 7 for a 73-yard punt, the ninth-longest in Bills history."

Buffalo Bills win ugly, but it's still a win | Democrat and Chronicle
"The Bills' red zone efficiency remains a major problem. They entered the game with just nine TDs scored from inside the 20, tied with the Rams and Raiders for fewest in the NFL. They tacked on just one more against the Chiefs in four trips and were lucky those failures did not cost them the game."

"This is one for the vault, but only if the plan is to put the tape of Sunday's Bills-Chiefs game in said vault, lock it up, and throw away the key. Beauty is clearly in the eye of the beholding winning coach, because this game was uglier than the clothes pro golfers wore in the 1970s."
