KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs built a defense and signed a backup quarterback that were good enough to preserve a win.

Now, are they good enough to win on their own?

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) In what was supposed to be a showdown between Buffalo's Josh Allen and Baltimore's Lamar Jackson, Taron Johnson literally stole the show.
