Offensive spotlight: Travis Kelce returned this week from a knee injury that kept him out of Week 1, but he wasn’t nearly as productive as he typically is. Kelce had nine targets, four more than any other Chiefs receiver, but those passes resulted in just four catches for 26 yards and a touchdown. He averaged just 1.0 yards per route, less than half of what he can normally be relied upon to produce. Two of the incompletions were drops and five of the targets were contested, suggesting this was a hampered version of Kelce.
Defensive spotlight: Chris Jones was back in action for the first time this season after his holdout ended, and the Chiefs reaped the benefits. Jones led the team in pressures and was a problem for the Jaguars wherever he lined up. Like all truly great pass rushers, Jones also seemed to come up big in key moments, earning one of his sacks on a fourth-down play from around midfield. Jones is a Defensive Player of the Year level talent, and he showed that immediately.
Rookie spotlight: Tackle Anton Harrison was the only rookie in this game to feature in more than a limited role. Harrison, Jacksonville's starting right tackle, played 50 pass-blocking snaps in a very one-dimensional game for the Jaguars' offense. On first review, he had his fair share of problems over the course of those snaps.
