Alex Smith Ready for Hostile Buffalo Crowd
(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) — The Kansas City Chiefs road to a 9-0 start to 2013 will go through Buffalo on Sunday when they take on the Bills (3-5).
Kansas City is 3-0 this season away from Arrowhead Stadium and quarterback Alex Smith is expecting a loud Ralph Wilson Stadium.
“I mean, they’re all hostile. For me, I’m not thinking about comparing them or anything. They’re all, as an offense going in, they all present challenges, playing on the road, dealing with crowd noise,” Smith said on Wednesday as the Chiefs prepare for Buffalo. “From my perspective, yeah, it’s a loud place, but seems like every time we play on the road is a loud place.”
The Bills defense is allowing 26.6 points per game this season, but Smith isn’t looking past the team getting up for an 8-0 team.
“They’re a good group. You turn on the film, they’re a talented group and I think it starts with their front. I think they’re second in the NFL in sacks. They get a lot of pressure, especially with the front four. They create a lot of turnovers; they’re very unorthodox in the back end,” said Smith, who has thrown for 1,795 yards and nine touchdowns eight games in. “They run a lot of different coverages and try to confuse you. They’ve had success and created a lot of turnovers. We certainly have our hands full this week.”
The Bills are 2-2 at home this season.
