The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs had to wait longer than normal to resume their match between favorites in the AFC this Sunday night, thanks to a delay caused by thunderstorms in the area.
The Bills and Chiefs managed to finish the first half of the game without major setbacks, with a score of 24-13 in favor of the visitors.
However, the teams stayed in the locker room and fans in the stadium were instructed to look for roofed areas after the thunderstorm warning was announced.

This is the second week in a row that a thunderstorm has disrupted an NFL game. In Week 4, the Las Vegas Raiders and the Los Angeles Chargers had to wait to start their game at SoFi Stadium, in the “Monday Night Football” game.
Due to lightning in the area, the second half of #BUFvsKC is delayed.
