Upon Further Review: Five Quick Facts Following the Chiefs' Loss on Sunday

The Kansas City Chiefs dropped a close one on Sunday, falling to the Buffalo Bills at Arrowhead Stadium. It was Kansas City's fifth loss in its last six games, though the Chiefs still lead the division with five games to play.

Here are some quick facts following the loss.

1. The Bills came to play on Sunday

Bills' quarterback Tyrod Taylor continued his strong play on the road this season, posting a passer rating over 90.0 for a fourth time in six games.

Buffalo took the lead late in the first quarter when Taylor found wide receiver Zay Jones for an 11-yard touchdown, continuing an interesting trend for the Bills' offense.

2. Linebacker Reggie Ragland is developing into a difference-maker for Kansas City

Ragland recorded nine tackles (8.0 solo) and three tackles for loss against Buffalo – his former team before being traded to the Chiefs prior to the season.

His three tackles for loss matched the most by a Chief this season, joining Justin Houston in Week 2 against Philadelphia.

The second-year linebacker has led Kansas City with 18 tackles (16.0 solo) and four tackles for loss over the Chiefs' last two games.

3. Justin Houston got to the quarterback

Houston notched a sack on Sunday, making it 8.5 on the season – his most since 2014.

The seventh-year linebacker is just five sacks shy of matching Art Still (1978-87) for the fourth-most in team history.

It was part of a Chiefs' defensive effort that tallied two sacks and nine tackles for loss on the afternoon.

4. Harrison Butker continues to kick his way into the record books

The rookie kicker connected on a 45-yard field goal late in the first half on Sunday, marking his 23rd consecutive made kick – the longest streak in team history. Butker passed Ryan Succop (2011) and Pete Stoyanovich (1997-98) for the record.

And with five games to go, Butker is just two kicks shy of matching Cairo Santos (2014) and Succop (2009) for the most made field goals by a rookie in franchise history.

5. Albert Wilson played well in his return to the field

Wilson returned to action on Sunday after missing Kansas City's last two games with a hamstring injury, and played well, hauling in three catches for 36 yards and a touchdown.

The touchdown reception was Wilson's 100th career catch, and a career-high third score through the air.
