Red flag a challenge for Rex in Bills' loss to Chiefs

In-game management hasn't necessarily been a strong point for Rex Ryan during his head coaching career. He put an exclamation point on that notion Sunday in the Buffalo Bills'  30-22 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Writes Tyler Dunne of The Buffalo News:
"First, he failed to challenge a 37-yarder to Jeremy Maclin when the ball clearly hit the ground. Then, he (for some reason) challenged an incompletion to Robert Woods that clearly was not a catch. And, to top it off, Rex Ryan didn't challenge what would've been a completion to Chris Hogan on Buffalo's final drive. What? On the eventual fourth and 9, Tyrod Taylor took off on the run, fumbled, picked the ball back up and came close to the first-down marker. Ryan challenged this one but the call was not overturned. ... Not to mention there was an 11-yard run by Alex Smith earlier in the game shy of the market Ryan also could've challenged."
And coaching aside, the Bills had other issues. That was just the main one. The Bills fell to 5-6 with the loss and are now on the outside looking in regarding the AFC Wildcard race.
