1. Justin Houston warrants attention
By Adam Schefter - ESPN.com
"Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is regarded as the NFL's best defensive player, with stupendous stats. Only there's a defensive player out there who has Watt's production, but not his attention.
Justin Houston -- a major reason the Chiefs have won five of their past six games as they head to Buffalo for Sunday's game versus the Bills -- is the best defensive player in football whom so few notice. His production rivals anyone's and screams for Watt-like attention." READ MORE…

"It's going to come our way,'' Bowe said. "Right now, other guys are getting opportunities and making plays. On third down I'm moving the chains and getting guys in position to make those touchdowns." READ MORE…
5. Chiefs offensive line figures to get a stiff test in Buffalo
By AP - KCChiefs.com
"Kyle Orton has received nothing but praise since taking over as the starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills.
