1. Monday's matchup will feature this first at Bills Stadium in nearly 45 years
Monday's matchup features several unique stats due to a contest with two quarterbacks who have put up impressive stats in the last two years. It has been more than 40 years since Buffalo has hosted a game where the opponent and the Bills have had this many wins. The last time the Bills played a home game in which both teams had an .800 or better winning percentage was on October 26, 1975 when Buffalo (4-1) faced Miami (4-1).
Here's some other milestones to look out for on Monday.
- If the Bills win, Sean McDermott will record his 30th win as the Bills head coach and surpass Wade Phillips for fourth-most wins in team history.
- If wide receiver Stefon Diggs totals at least 100 receiving yards, he will become the fourth Bill in team history with three-straight 100-yard receiving games and the first since Eric Moulds in 2000.
- If quarterback Josh Allen has at least 250 passing yards, he will become the second quarterback in franchise history with six-straight games of at least 250 passing yards.
- If Allen has one passing touchdown and one rushing touchdown, he will hold a new franchise record with 14 games where he has recorded a passing and rushing touchdown.
2. One Bills player you might want to add to your fantasy team
Buffalo Bills fans haven't really gotten a true look at rookie running back Zack Moss yet due to his toe injury. Moss was drafted by the Bills in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft and came to Buffalo with a laundry list of accomplishments from Utah. The running back was the Pac-12's Offensive Player of the Year in 2019 and broke six records at Utah. Moss was a full participant in practice this week as he's working his way back from injury. According to NFL fantasy analyst Michael Florio, the rookie may be someone you want to add to your fantasy roster as he makes his way back to the field, possibly as soon as Monday.
Zack Moss, RB, Buffalo Bills
Moss has now missed three straight weeks with a toe injury, but he's been getting in limited practices in recent weeks and this week was upgraded to full. He should be good to go this week against the Chiefs and that makes him a sleeper. The Chiefs have allowed the 10th-most fantasy PPG to RBs this season (27.86). On the year, they've allowed the fourth-most rushing YPG to RBs (126.4) and are giving up six catches per game to backs. Devin Singletary's snaps dropped in Week 5 even with Moss inactive and the Bills just have not looked comfortable making him a bell cow back. Moss will have a role, particularly in the passing game and near the goal line, this week. Moss is a player you may even be able to nab off the waiver wire and get into your lineup.
3. Hyde: I was so happy for Cam
Buffalo Bills corner Cam Lewis had his first NFL start on Tuesday against the Titans due to corner Tre'Davious White being sidelined with a back injury. The undrafted corner finished his first start with five solo tackles. Bills safety Micah Hyde said he was proud of how the University of Buffalo product played against a talented opponent.
"I was so happy for Cam [Lewis]," Hyde said. "He's putting in a lot of work around here. We joke around with him and say he's a Buffalo guy because he went to college here. He's hard-nosed, a blue-collar guy from Detroit, just comes to work every day and doesn't make the same mistake twice. I was happy for him to see him go out there last week and make some big plays for us."
