48.8% >> The Bills now lead the league in scoring drive efficiency. Buffalo is scoring points on almost half of their total possessions this season. Josh Allen and company scored on seven of their nine possessions, not counting their one-play kneel down possession at the end of the first half. Kansas City is right behind them at 48.7 percent.

50.3% >> Buffalo's league-leading third-down conversion percentage is a big reason why the Bills offense is scoring at the rate they are this season.

And they've been ranked in the top five in this category for all but three weeks this season.
