With their win on Sunday, the Buffalo Bills move to 4-1 and are now tied for the second-best record in the AFC. The team trails the 5-0 New England Patriots—the only team to beat Buffalo in this young season.
The Kansas City Chiefs lost on Sunday night to fall back into a tie with Buffalo at 4-1. Four teams stand one game back; the Baltimore Ravens, Oakland Raiders, Houston Texans, and Indianapolis Colts with the 2-2 Cleveland Browns still to play on Monday night with the possibility of joining them.
The Los Angeles Chargers, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Tennessee Titans are below .500 at 2-3. The Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers are barely out of the basement at 1-4. The New York Jets and Miami Dolphins sit at 0-4 while the Cincinnati Bengals are 0-5.
The Bills will play five more games against AFC teams with a currently losing record. Entering their bye week, the worst position Buffalo can be in a week from now is exactly where they are now: in the lead for the first Wild Card spot.
