Patrick Mahomes: Mahomes had his six-game streak with over 300 passing yards snapped on Sunday, throwing for 223 yards. He only threw one touchdown pass but added a rushing touchdown to his line to notch his eighth top-six scoring week over his past nine games.
Mahomes is a plug-and-play QB1, but he does get one of the tougher matchups this season for opposing passers. The Broncos have allowed just 9.9 passing points per game to passers, second in the league. They have allowed multiple passing touchdowns just twice on the season.
Mahomes is the best passer the Broncos have faced this season by a wide margin while they did allow a 300-yard game to Derek Carr three weeks ago. Denver did give Mahomes a bit of trouble last year, limiting him to 6.3 Y/A and 6.1 Y/A with two total passing touchdowns.
