2021 NFL season, Week 5: What we learned from Sunday's game

Recommended Posts


  1. It might be October, but this was a big one for Buffalo. At this point, a Week 1 loss to the Steelers seems like an outlier that occurred in a different realm of another planet. The Josh Allen-led Bills have now won four in a row and slayed the two-time reigning AFC champs. Though it's but Week 5, much ado can be made that Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs were bested by Lamar Jackson and the Ravens for the first time head-to-head this season and now too the same has happened against Allen and the Bills. A changing of the guard cannot be finalized until the postseason has come and gone, but there is merit that emerges from this AFC Championship Game rematch. Allen, who lost his two previous head-to-head matchups with Mahomes last season, led the way on offense with his arm and his legs. It wasn't always pretty in a soggy game that had a lengthy halftime weather delay, but Allen's ability to galvanize this team took center stage. With the always dangerous Chiefs having cut their deficit to 11 early in the fourth, Allen piloted a 12-play, 85-yard drive that took up 7 minutes, 51 seconds (albeit helped immensely by a very questionable roughing the passer call). On one play, he hurdled a defender for a first-down run. On the last play of the drive, he tossed an 8-yard score to Emmanuel Sanders. It sealed a pretty big win for Buffalo. Just how big, of course remains to be seen.
  2. Statement showing for Bills defense. Allen's emergence in an otherworldly 2020 season overshadowed that the defense of the Bills, which had engineered the franchise's renaissance, had slipped. Well, Buffalo has found its footing on that side of the ball and is back with a vengeance. Entering Sunday night, Mahomes was undefeated when facing a No. 1-ranked defense. That stat no longer applies. While Micah Hyde's pick-six will be the highlight garnering the most TV time, it was an overall masterpiece for the Bills D. Buffalo didn't blitz once, but still tallied 11 pressures and a pair of sacks while muddying up Mahomes' reads by dropping everyone back in coverage. It forced four turnovers and allowed a season-low 20 points to the high-octane Chiefs on 11 drives. Tre'Davious White, Taron Johnson, first-round rookie Gregory Rousseau all had stellar Sunday nights. In a rainy mess of a night, they shined bright against the NFL's most vaunted offense.
  3. The wrong kind of statement for Chiefs D. The Chiefs' offense is still sensational, but it hasn't been that level of outstanding it needs to be to overcome such a bad defense. The Bills had big chunk gains throughout the night, with four Bills tallying plays of 24 yards or more with Dawson Knox (three catches for 117 yards) scoring on a 53-yard pass and Stefon Diggs hauling in a 61-yard catch. Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu looked frustrated trying to organize an overmatched and out-of-sorts secondary that led to the team allowing 436 yards of offense and was helped little by a Chris Jones-less pass rush. After five weeks, it would seem the struggle is real in Kansas City.
