  • Kansas City has 23 more sacks than their opponent, second in the NFL.

  • The Chiefs are averaging 7.3 yards per play on third down, second in the NFL.

  • Kansas City is allowing a league-low 2.9 yards per play on third downs.

Trust = spike production for that player


Patrick Mahomes: Mahomes bounced back as QB8 (20.8 points) on Sunday, completing a season-high 79.4% of his passes (27-of-34) for 298 yards and two touchdowns.

The 8.8 yards per pass attempt was his second-highest rate in a game this season.

Mahomes still only has two top-five scoring weeks on the season. The bar has been moved for him as a floor-based QB1 versus a ceiling crasher this season.

That is the area where Green Bay has limited opposing passers, even when they do hit against them.

The Packers are seventh in pressure rate (39.4%) and 11th in passing points allowed per game (12.4).

Green Bay has not allowed more than two touchdown passes in any game this season, but they have allowed three QB1 scoring weeks over their past five games to Kirk Cousins (19.9 points), Justin Herbert (25.7 points), and Jared Goff (18.2 points).
