vs CLE

8:25 pm GMT , 9/12

When you have Patrick Mahomes leading off your depth chart, you are going to be in a pretty good place. Not only do the Chiefs have Mahomes under center, but they also have an incredible set of weapons for him to throw to. Tyreek Hill is the WR1 in Kansas City, but Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson have both been used as home-run threats with their speed. The Chiefs also have Sammy Watkins who has been inconsistent, but still gives them a bigger-bodied threat. Travis Kelce is one of the best tight ends in the league and no surprise to see him with one of the higher snap counts in the league.
