'Missed opportunities' in red zone continue for Bills


The Buffalo Bills entered Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs ranked 29th in the NFL in red zone offense.

They didn't do much to help their case in that department.

Buffalo went 0-for-4 inside the 20, settling for two field goals, losing a fumble and turning the ball over on downs in a 17-13 loss.

"A couple of missed opportunities," quarterback Kyle Orton said, via "Which when you're playing a good football team usually comes back to haunt you."

Running back Bryce Brown was on his way to a third quarter touchdown when he lost his handle on the ball thanks to the efforts of Chiefs defender Ron Parker. A failed attempt of tight end Scott Chandler to recover the ball sent it through the end zone for a touchback.

In addition to two other stalled drives that ended in field goals, Orton threw four straight incompletions from the 15-yard line on the Bills' final drive.

The Bills finished last season 29th in red zone efficiency, so the recent struggles are all too familiar for the Western New York squad.
