STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Chiefs one win from matching best start to season, after going 9-0 in 2003. For Bills, this marks first time they have faced undefeated team past midpoint of season since New England improved to 10-0 with 56-10 win at Orchard Park on Nov. 18, 2007. ... Through quirk in schedule, non-division rivals meet sixth straight season, with Bills holding 4-1 edge. ... Chiefs are first NFL team to go 8-0 under new head coach (Andy Reid), new quarterback (Alex Smith), and after finishing previous season with league's worst record. ... Defense has held opponents to 17 points or less in first eight games, one short of matching NFL's longest streak set by Atlanta in 1977. ... 98 points allowed are fifth fewest by Kansas City in team history through first eight games, and second fewest in 16-game season. ... Led by RB Jamaal Charles, Chiefs have topped 100 yards rushing in each of first eight games for fifth time in team history. With team-leading 41 catches, Charles has topped 100 yards from scrimmage in all eight games. ... LBs Justin Houston, with 11 sacks, and Tamba Hali, nine, are NFL's top pass-rushing tandem. ... Chiefs' first eight opponents have combined 21-40 record. Their second-half opponents have currently combined for 35-24 record. ... After entering bye next weekend, Chiefs return to face Denver twice in three weeks. ... Bills 2-2 at home, with two losses decided by combined five points. Two home wins have been decided by combined 5 points. ... Bills coming off most lopsided loss of season, and first game in which they've not led or been within score of lead in fourth quarter. ... Interim starting QB Thad Lewis (bruised ribs) is questionable, opening possibility of undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel or newly signed free agent Matt Flynn starting Sunday. ... DE Mario Williams second in NFL with 11 sacks, three short of matching career best. ... With RBs C.J. Spiller (sprained left ankle) and Fred Jackson (sprained left knee) limited by injuries, Bills have been held under 100 yards rushing each of past two games. ... Defense has allowed two TDs rushing, 20 TDs passing.
