The Chiefs, once losers of five in a row, are now winners of five in a row after beating the Bills 30-22 on Sunday. They are 6-5, on the good side of a muddy AFC playoff picture, so soon after being left for dead by anyone operating more on logic than faith. And they are doing it as a team.
The Chiefs had an embarrassing gap in their game in 2014: no touchdown passes to wide receivers. They acquired Jeremy Maclin to change that, and Maclin on Sunday was the key to their fifth straight victory, 30-22 over Buffalo.
Kansas City trailed by 10 points early in the game, but the Chiefs offense hit a groove as team won its fifth straight game. With their fifth straight win, the Chiefs are in a playoff spot with a 6-5 record.
