1. Where the Bills stand in the AFC East
Despite the loss in yesterday's game, the Bills still retain sole possession of first place in the AFC East. The last time Buffalo had sole possession of first place this late in a season was in Week 7, 2008. They had a 5-1 record and they were ahead of New England who was in second place at 4-2. The Bills next two games are against the Jets and the Patriots, which are crucial division games if the Bills want to win the division for the first time since 1995. After the game, Jordan Poyer spoke on where the Bills stand after week six.
"It's a chess match, Poyer said. "And we have to continue to get better and stay together as a football team. Understand that we are 4-2 right now and have an opportunity to play the Jets on the road on a short week too. That will be able to get us off this loss right here."

2. Jerry Hughes on how the Bills can bounce back
The Bills now have back-to-back losses for the first time since the last two weeks of the 2019 season, but it is no time to panic. They still have a 4-2 record, sole possession of the AFC East and have two division games to get back on track. Jerry Hughes explains what this team has to do during the week to have a better performance on Sunday.
"These last two weeks, we got punched in the face, and we have to finish this month strong," Hughes said. "I think that's our main focus, that we can't go back and change the past, but we have to learn from it. We have to figure out a way to get better day in and day out. I think with this next game coming up, because it's going to be a quick turnaround, it's going to be important for us to figure out what we're doing wrong and fix that now. That way we can move forward in a positive direction."
3. Bills remain in the top 10 in Yahoo power rankings
Frank Schwab of Yahoo Sports unveiled his power rankings early Tuesday morning and the Bills came in at the No. 8 spot. Schwab noted that despite back-to-back losses, he still remains confident in the Bills. Here's Schwab's recap on the Bills for this week.
I've been high on the Bills, and I'm not bailing on them now. Butthat was ugly. The Chiefs were miles ahead of Buffalo in a big spot for the Bills. The offense flailed around in the rain, and the defense continued a very unimpressive start to the season. They'll get it fixed. I think.
