NFL Week 12 predictions: Bills at Chiefs

The Chiefs have been sliding, but the Bills' three-game losing streak has featured some eye-opening statistics that won't inspire much confidence in Buffalo, even if they are bringing back Tyrod Taylor.

Chiefs can't lose with Darrelle Revis signing

It might be a gamble after his poor 2016 campaign, but signing Darrelle Revis was necessary risk, given how leaky the Chiefs' cornerbacks have been.

Darrelle Revis on his reasons for signing with the Chiefs.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Darrelle Revis on Chiefs CB Marcus Peters: "He's awesome. Marcus Peters is really awesome. I love the way he plays. I've been on the other side, playing against him and (he) made plays and being a little bit upset in terms of being competitive and wanting to win. He's (taken) the league by storm. A very talented player and I'm excited about what we can do.

More Darelle Revis: "I'm a big fan of Andy Reid as well. I still haven't been able to intercept one of his quarterback's passes. Now I'm actually teaming up with him.''

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Darelle Revis on signing with the Chiefs: “The reason for me returning is the fire I have, the fuel I have to continue to play this game at a high level . . . My role is to help win. Whatever is best for the team, whether my position is playing a few downs or playing in the slot, wherever coach wants to play me and feels he can utilize me to help win.''

It's unfair to blame it all on Darrelle Revis, but his previous employer - the Jets - suffered a major decline in 2016 when he was on the field compared to the previous season.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

More Andy Reid on the 32-year-old Darrell Revis: ''I would tell you he looks great physically. Time does that. Time will take a step away from you. That happens. But he's a smart guy who knows how to play the game. That's becomes important at this point in his career. I'm not telling you he can't run. He can still run.''

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

"You're talking about one of the all-time great players at that position. It's just a matter of getting him back in the swing of things . . . I would think his role would be to step in and be a starter.'' -- Chiefs coach Andy Reid on the signing of Darrelle Revis.

Bill Barnwell ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chiefs have rotated between Terrance Mitchell, Kenneth Acker, and Phillip Gaines for different stretches at cornerback across from Marcus Peters. With nobody claiming the job for themselves, they've finally convinced Darrelle Revis to come in and compete for a starting job. Revis Island might be closed for good, but if Bob Sutton can coax a Revis Toll Booth out of the 32-year-old, the Chiefs will be delighted.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Andy Reid didn't rule out Darrelle Revis from playing for the Chiefs on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Defensive coordinator Bob Sutton was on the Jets' coaching staff during some of Revis' time in New York, so he should be familiar with the system.

RB Kareem Hunt and QB Alex Smith are among the top 10 vote-getters in early fan voting for the Pro Bowl. Hunt is seventh and Smith 10th but each trails at his respective position. Smith is sixth among quarterbacks behind Carson Wentz, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Jared Goff and Russell Wilson. Hunt is third among running backs behind Le'Veon Bell and Todd Gurley. The only Chiefs player leading at his position is Tyreek Hill as a kick return specialist.

The Bills will start Tyrod Taylor this Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. "It's the right thing for our team," coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday.
