The Josh Allen-led Buffalo Bills suffered their first loss of the season earlier this week against the in-form Tennessee Titans. The Bills were outplayed by Ryan Tannehill and running back Derrick Henry, who led the Titans to a deserved 42-16 win last Tuesday. They will look to get back to winning ways when they play the defending champions, Kansas City Chiefs, tonight.
Patrick Mahomes and Co. also suffered their first loss of the season in Week 5 at the hands of Derek Carr’s Las Vegas Raiders. They lost by a 32-40 scoreline at the Arrowhead Stadium. Head Coach Andy Reid will be hoping for a better performance when the Chiefs take to the field on Monday night.
Here’s a detailed look at both teams, along with injury updates and Week 6 game day predictions.
Buffalo Bills’ Josh Allen hoping to get back to winning ways in Week 6
Josh Allen has simply been outstanding over the course of the 2020 NFL season. The promising youngster has thrown for 1,300 yards with 12 TDs to his name.
Of course, he was disappointed after last week’s loss, but he will be looking to redeem himself against ‘rival’ Patrick Mahomes.

Bills’ offensive stars RB Devin Singletary and WR Stefon Diggs will be key for the home team tonight. They will go up against a strong Chiefs defense who will offer the home team little room for error.
On the defensive end, Daryl Johnson and Quinton Jefferson will look to keep the likes of Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire at bay.
Kansas City Chiefs looking to bounce back after a shock loss in Week 5
Head Coach Andy Reid will be disappointed by last week’s shock defeat to the Raiders. However, the Chiefs will not be too bothered by that result.
If anything, the Bills should be worried that the Chiefs will come out guns blazing to make up for their previous loss. Patrick Mahomes threw for 340 yards with 2 passing TDs to his name. He will be hoping to build on his strong start to the season by leading his team to their 5th win.

In the absence of Sammy Watkins, Mahomes will look to Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce for support. Rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be crucial tonight.
In addition, it will be interesting to see if the former New York Jets star, Le’Veon Bell, is handed his Chiefs debut by Reid on Monday night. He could prove to be a huge asset to the defending champions over the course of the ongoing season.
