Denver Broncos @ Kansas City Chiefs – CBS, 1:00 PM

Keenum connecting very deep

Case Keenum has had success when targeting 30-plus yards downfield this season. His 142.4 passer rating on such throws is second-best among quarterbacks this year.

Keenum to Sanders

Keenum looks to Emmanuel Sanders whenever he needs to make a play. Through seven weeks, Sanders leads all Broncos receivers in targets from a clean pocket, targets against the blitz and targets in the fourth quarter.

Miller picking up

After starting the season with a bang, star pass-rusher Von Miller was relatively quiet from Weeks 2 to 5. However, he was up to his usual tricks in Week 7, where he racked up 12 impact plays.

Roby's resurgence

Cornerback Bradley Roby is coming off his best game in a Broncos uniform. He'll look to keep the ball rolling in Week 8.

Kelce going deep

Tight end Travis Kelce has been excellent on ‘go' routes this year. This could spell danger for the Broncos, who struggle to cover tight ends at the best of times.

Mahomes: elite from a clean pocket

Through seven weeks, Patrick Mahomes has been deadly when he's been kept free from pressure, and he leads the league with a 131.5 passer rating from a clean pocket.

Ford getting to the quarterback

Dee Ford currently leads the league's edge defenders with 37 total quarterback pressures. Case Keenum will be firmly in his sights on Sunday.

Parker excelling in coverage

Safety Ron Parker has been excellent in coverage so far this season and has allowed a passer rating of just 55.3 on throws into his coverage.
