Five plays into the Buffalo Bills’ first series of the second half, the game was going about as well as anyone could have expected for the home team in Ralph Wilson Stadium.
Even though the Bills had to rely upon their third starting quarterback of the season, undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel, to lead their offense against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs and their elite defense, the Bills were on the verge of taking a two-touchdown lead. On a drive that started with a 61-yard run by injury-plagued running back C.J. Spiller, a defensive pass interference penalty in the end zone gave the Bills offense first-and-goal from inside the 1-yard line.
Three plays later, everything changed.
