Fearless Freddie’s Football Forecast

SCARY IDEA. Can the Buffalo Bills knock off the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs Sunday? Probably not, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be rooting for an upset.

Buffalo’s injury problems on the offensive side of the ball will be the ultimate tipping point in this one.

Freddie sees it this way:

Chiefs 24, BILLS 13
