“Last week everybody was kicking dirt on you,” Gailey said in a post game press conference. “This week their going to put you on a little bit of a pedestal and neither one are true. And you have to keep a steady mind set and in 24 hours we have to get ready to go to Cleveland.”

You can see Gailey will not tolerate his team being complacent as they still figure out what kind of team they are.

The Bills took a step in the right direction in a week 2 game against the Chiefs in which they won every aspect of the game. C.J. Spiller continued his breaking out party with 123 yards on 15 carries and two touchdowns. He also recorded three catches for 47 yards.

“We rather be a physical run team that throws it when they have to or throws it on surprise situations,” Gailey said. “We will continue to work down this path as much as we can. Some weeks they don’t allow you to do that. They overload the box and you have to throw it.”

On Sunday, it was evident that the Bills were able to be the physical run team they want to be with Spiller in the backfield. The Bills were not forced to throw much as no receiver caught more than two passes and Spiller only catching three out of the backfield.

The Bills defense had a bounce back game after a week 1 disappointment. The Bills recorded five sacks, two of them by Kyle Williams, and Mario Williams recovered a Matt Cassell fumble. The Bills also made a huge stand on their own goal-line. Leading 21-0 in the 1st half, Nick Barnett forced running back Peyton Hillis to fumble.

So are the Bills as bad as week 1? Are they as good as week 2? The answer is still unknown but week 2 was a step in the right direction.
