Patrick Mahomes has been sacked 12 times all season.

Perhaps the most frustrating thing about playing Patrick Mahomes is he's so hard to get to and get on the ground. It isn't like he's getting rid of the ball quickly either. He just has this knack for keeping plays alive.

The question comes down to how you attempt to bother the reigning MVP. Blitzing isn't wise. Neither is sitting back in a passive zone. It will be interesting to see what Sean Desai comes up with.

A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith average 170.9 yards per game as a tandem.

Say what you will about Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith have the potential to be the best wide receiver duo in all of pro football, and they can create big plays anytime the ball is thrown in their direction,

The Chiefs have a solid cornerback duo in L'Jarius Sneed and Trent McDuffie. This will be A.J. and DeVonta's toughest test of the regular-season campaign so far. They held Tyreek Hill to 62 yards and 7.8 yards per reception.
