Buffalo Bills vs. Kansas City Chiefs Second Half GameThread

Insofar as first halves go in the NFL, the Buffalo Bills don't have a lot to complain about. They lead the Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 20-7 at halftime in Week 1 at Arrowhead Stadium.

Aided by two Chiefs turnovers - both lost fumbles - the Bills have enjoyed outstanding field position all day. Buffalo's offense responded with two quick touchdowns - scoring strikes from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Scott Chandler (four yards) and Stevie Johnson (27), respectively - for an early 14-0 lead after the first quarter.

More Chiefs miscues and sloppy play allowed the Bills to extend their lead to 20-0 by the mid-way point of the second quarter, but some erratic throws from Fitzpatrick prevented the lead from being even bigger. At the half, Fitzpatrick has completed 8-of-15 for 125 yards and two scores. Fred Jackson (11 carries, 46 yards) has also been outstanding.

The Chiefs stole a little momentum before halftime when Jamaal Charles hauled in a six-yard scoring strike from Matt Cassel. The Bills will have an opportunity to steal it right back, however, as they have first possession in the third quarter. Let's go Bills!
