Young, who is one of the analysts on ESPN’s “Monday Night Countdown,” was talking about the Bills-Chiefs game before Monday night’s Colts-Ravens contest. Young said that the Chiefs had lost their “alpha dog” status in the AFC.

“Everyone knows that in the NFL, they know the alpha dog. And the Chiefs were the alpha dog in the AFC. I felt it changed yesterday,” Young said. “The defense of the Bills, the scar tissue of the Bills, Josh Allen … it just felt like they’ve traded places. And the alpha dog in the AFC yesterday changed to the Bills.”

Packers place Pro Bowl CB Jaire Alexander on IR with shoulder injury

  Packers place Pro Bowl CB Jaire Alexander on IR with shoulder injury The Packers’ plan, per Matt LaFleur, is for Alexander to avoid surgery — a potentially season-ending decision — at all costs. LaFleur hopes Alexander will be able to return in a few weeks, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein. The Packers are set to face the Bengals, Bears and Washington over the next three games.While Green Bay has Preston Smith and Rashan Gary at the edge-rushing spots, the team is a bit less equipped to withstand a prolonged Alexander absence. The Packers will lean on first-round pick Eric Stokes and the recently re-signed Kevin King at corner.

Young was challenged by Booger McFarland, who questioned whether a game in early October could flip things. He disagreed and said it’s on the Bills to prove it in the playoffs.

The Chiefs beat the Bills twice last season. One of the victories came on the road in the regular season, and the other came at home in the AFC Championship Game. Buffalo getting the win was a big deal on Sunday night.

Even more worrisome for Chiefs fans was Andy Reid’s quote after the loss.

Kansas City is 2-3 this season. The Bills are tied for the best record in the AFC at 4-1.
