Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon caught a season-high 7 passes in Sunday's win over the Broncos. He turned those into 112 yards and 2 TDs. The big strike came when QB Patrick Mahomes made an underhanded flip to evade defenders that turned into a 56-yard score. McKinnon added a 10-yard score later in the 2nd quarter. He sat tied with JuJu Smith-Schuster for 2nd on the team in targets at halftime and finished tied with Travis Kelce for 2nd (with 9). It marked the 4th time in the past 6 games that McKinnon drew 6+ looks and the 2nd straight game he reached 10 opportunities. (McKinnon added 6 carries for 22 yards against Denver.) Isiah Pacheco added 70 yards on 13 carries and 3-23 receiving on 3 targets vs. the Broncos. The Chiefs get a high-ceiling rushing matchup with the Texans in Week 15.
