Bills Blow Out the Chiefs In the Season Opener
Just like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get with the Buffalo Bills. What an impressive season-opening victory against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Bills capitalized on turnovers. They were outstanding on defense. And Ryan Fitzpatrick tied a career record with four touchdown passes in a 41 to 7 victory handing the Chiefs their second-worst home loss in team history.
Fitzpatrick finished 17 of 26 for 208 yards and touchdown strikes to Stevie Johnson, Donald Jones and two to tight end Scott Chandler.
Meanwhile, Fred Jackson rushed for 112 yards on 20 carries.
The Bills got off to a fast start when they cashed in after they recovered a Chiefs’ fumble on the opening kickoff and drove 26 yards for the opening touchdown. The Bills built a 20-nothing lead before the Chiefs finally scored their only touchdown of the game.
Before the game there was a very emotional pre-game ceremony remembering the victims of 9-11 complete with an American flag that covered the entire field and the national anthem sung by American Idol winner David Cook.
The Bills play their home opener next Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.
