Williams to Have Knee Surgery
Williams (Foot) Ruled Out for Week 12
Tyrod Taylor is officially probable. Mario Williams is out. http://espn.go.com/espn/now?nowId=21-0461944315162138666-4 ...
after going for 220 yards on 23 carries in 1st half, UMass RB Marquise Young has 7 yds on 9 carries in 2nd half
Could be right. Mario has been playing the run well, but Hughes has been the team's best rusher. https://t.co/qlK5FYQt1W

Week 12 Scouting Report
Bills @ Chiefs
Top 3 Individual Matchups
1. #CoreyGraham vs. Travis Kelce
The Chiefs tight end leads the team in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. He also leads all NFL tight ends in yards after the catch. This will be a matchup that figures to see more than just Graham for the Bills as a coverage assignment.
2. #JerryHughes vs. Eric Fisher
Buffalo’s edge rusher has been flipping sides more often than in the past, but a majority of the matchups will be against Fisher. The Chiefs left tackle is part of a line that’s given up 34 sacks, which is third-highest in the NFL this season.
3. #SammyWatkins vs. Marcus Peters
The Chiefs rookie cornerback has held his own against top flight competition. Buffalo’s offensive staff is determined to make Watkins a major component of the offense on a more consistent basis.
Bills Top 2 Advantages
Good advantage – Red zone offense
The Bills are only near the middle of the pack when it comes to scoring touchdowns in the red zone at almost 53 percent, but the Chiefs struggled defensively inside their 20-yard line. They rank 29th in red zone defense and allow their opponents to string together successful plays 52 percent of the time, which is the highest rate allowed in the league.
Best advantage – Pass rush
Buffalo’s production had dipped considerably from that of the past two years when it’s come to their pass rush. However, Rex Ryan is back to coaching the defense his way and there’s been a noticeable uptick in their pass pressure the last few weeks. Facing a Chiefs offense that’s 30th in sacks allowed could prove to be a very favorable matchup with or without Mario Williams.
