Marker Strategy and personnel [5:10 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'As for head coach Gregg Williams, he did not have this team ready to play, plain and simple.'

Marker Notes, quotes, anecdotes [5:09 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'LT Jonas Jennings left the Kansas City game with a hip injury. X-rays taken at Arrowhead Stadium were negative and it is believed that Jennings will be OK to play in Dallas Nov. 9, Buffalo's next game.'

Marker Bledsoe, Bills continue to disappoint on the road [5:08 AM]
Fox Sports reports: 'Here's another stat to chew on: Bledsoe is 2-15 on the road against teams that finished the season with a winning record since 1998. It may not be all his fault, but Bledsoe certainly doesn't lead his team to many big victories on the road.'

Marker Williams Avoids Any Job Status Talk [5:07 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"I coach every day as hard as I can and as I said earlier in the year, I will not comment on those things."'

Marker Bills fans not happy with coaching after KC game [5:06 AM]

75% say it should not.
9% aren't sure.'

Marker The Day After: Gregg Williams Comments [5:05 AM] reports: '"We played the best team in the AFC record wise and we weren't precise enough, especially in the first half or really in any part of the ballgame to beat a team like that on the road. We had our opportunities early in the ballgame. We had very good field position in the first half offensively. We weren't able to match any plays that they made and we gave up too many big plays in the first half. Our defense has been pretty solid on not giving up big plays but we gave up big plays in this ballgame. In the second half, defensively, we came out pretty strong forcing five punts out of seven possessions in the second half but we turned the ball over. Special teams played solid in both halves but we didn't get the offense or the defense clicking."'

Marker Bills reeling heading into bye week [8:35 PM]
AP reports: 'In his last six games, Bledsoe has averaged just over 200 yards passing, and combined for three touchdowns and seven interceptions.'

Marker Chiefs not eager to talk about streak [8:34 PM]
AP reports: 'Scoring three touchdowns against the Bills, Holmes looked sharper and quicker than he had all year.'

Marker Chiefs prove 8-0 is no fluke [3:23 PM]
Independence Examiner reports: 'Luck has nothing to do with this team's success. It's hard work and dedication that has them savoring a perfect start.'

Marker Stink, stank, stunk [3:04 PM]
Niagara Falls Reporter reports: 'It may seem difficult to imagine after witnessing Buffalo's abject loss in Kansas City on Sunday night, but the Bills have played as feebly and with as little life several times in their 44-season history. There was the time in 1968 that the Oakland Raiders obliterated Buffalo 48-6 -- on the Bills home field, no less. There was the time the Seattle Seahawks, in just their second season of existence, routed Buffalo 56-17 in O.J. Simpson's last game with the Bills. There was the Sunday afternoon in Foxboro, Mass., in 1997 when Billy Joe Hobert forgot his playbook, helping New England to a 33-6 pulverizing of the Bills. There was the 44-20 loss on a Monday night in Indianapolis in the waning weeks of the 2000 season that wasn't nearly that close. And let's travel all the way back to Oct. 10, when the Bills staged an equally pathetic performance while watching the previously winless New York Jets prance to a 30-3 victory. There's a theme to the first four hideous defeats mentioned above -- none of the head coaches responsible -- Joe Collier, Jim Ringo, Marv Levy or Wade Phillips -- kept their jobs the next season.'

Marker Chiefs looking title-bound [1:18 PM]
MSNBC reports: 'On Sunday, they either sacked Bills quarterback Drew Bledsoe or intercepted his passes until the Bills fell so far behind that Buffalo coach Gregg Williams gave the universal signal of surrender by pulling his starting quarterback to avoid seeing him end up in traction.'

Marker It’s another embarrassing road loss for the Bills [1:05 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'As defensive tackle Sam Adams said, reducing the performance to its simplest level, “You can’t win giving up 38 points ... and you can’t win scoring five.”'

Marker At least kick teams played well for Bills [1:04 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'At intermission, the Chiefs were averaging nearly nine yards a play against the NFL’s third-ranked defense in yards surrendered.'

Marker Priest passes Christian in KC’s all-time TD list [1:03 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Buffalo’s Pierson Prioleau blocked a punt by Kansas City’s Jason Baker for a safety in the first period. It was the first blocked punt by the Bills since Ken Irvin did it against Detroit in 1997.'

Marker Antoine Winfield Quotes [10:58 AM] reports: '"It's tough. I kind of wish we had a game next week to try to get the taste out of our mouth and get back on the field but we have to wait two weeks until we go to Dallas."'

Marker Takeo Spikes Quotes [10:58 AM] reports: '"We started out pretty good the first two series. I don't have too many answers right now until I look at the film. We gave up a big play in the beginning and after that it seemed like the flood gates just came open. I don't know. We have to look at film."'

Marker Eric Moulds Quotes [10:57 AM] reports: '"I thought we were ready to play. We just didn't make the plays. In ball games you're going to have swings. Things are going to swing their way and things are going to swing our way. They played poised at home and we didn't make enough plays on the road to keep the crowd out of the game."'

Marker Sam Adams Quotes [10:56 AM] reports: '"The effort was there but we didn't get it done execution wise. We didn't execute the way the plays were designed. We gave up too many big plays. Good teams eliminate the big plays and make teams work to get points. We didn't do that and we turned the ball over. We lost that battle."'

Marker Postgame Notes [10:55 AM] reports: 'Bills QB Drew Bledsoe owns an 0-4 record as a starter at Arrowhead, the most starts of any opposing quarterback at Arrowhead without a win.'

Marker Bills skewered in K.C. barbecue [9:06 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I thought we were ready to play," receiver Eric Moulds said. "But we just didn't make plays."'

Marker Bills' defense gets trampled from start [9:05 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Chiefs controlled this game from start to finish with a bewildering number of formations that left the Bills' heads spinning and wondering what hit them.'

Marker Defense fields a porous excuse for an elite unit [9:04 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It made you pine for the good old days of Chidi Ahanotu and Eddie Robinson.'

Marker Moulds returns in limited role [9:03 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Backup defensive tackle Ron Edwards was held out again because of an injured shoulder. The Bills have said his shoulder problem is not serious, but he has not practiced in a couple of weeks. His absence has hurt the Bills' depth on the interior defensive line, forcing starters Sam Adams and Pat Williams to play extended minutes.'

Marker Monday Billboard [9:02 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'So much for making a powerful statement. This was more of a pathetic whimper.'

Marker Rob Johnson will never understand [9:01 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'That's why McFadden's - and other "Bills bars" in cities around the country - is packed every Sunday. There are people in their 20s, there are people in their 80s. They range from a Bible salesman to Bernie Tolbert, the former FBI guy who now works in NBA security. All are infected with the Buffalo state of mind. They were there Sunday night. The game brings them together. But it's Buffalo that won't let go.'

Marker Chiefs pummel Bills [5:18 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills head to their much-needed bye week faced with the unenviable task of having to live with this dreadful performance for seven extra days before they get to play another game, and they also head there as a team in disarray.'

Marker Bills produce full reel of bloopers [5:17 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'On another national TV stage, in one of the NFL’s toughest venues for visiting teams, Buffalo had the perfect stage to prove once and for all its worthiness as a playoff contender. Instead, the Bills showed they are anything but.'

Marker Two-minute read [5:16 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Turning point: Kansas City’s defensive stand on the Buffalo series after Pierson Prioleau’s blocked punt, which resulted in a safety. Antonio Brown returned the ensuing free kick 23 yards to the Buffalo 46, setting up an ideal drive start. The Bills managed one first down, but then Drew Bledsoe was sacked on a third-and-eight play, which forced a punt. Four plays later, Hall made his touchdown catch and the rout was on.'

Marker Buffalo Bills report card [5:15 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Coaching: Another road dud for Gregg Williams, who was taken to school by the grandfatherly Dick Vermeil.'

Marker In a rout, there's no doubt about KC's top-dog status [4:49 AM]
Kansas City Star reports: 'The Bills, meanwhile, wasted great starting field position in the first half. They started each of their seven possessions outside of their 30 but managed only a 20-yard Rian Lindell field goal.'
