Kansas City Chiefs: Yards after capture
From 2019 to 2021, in the regular season, Tyreek Hill amassed the eighth most rushing yards after a catch among receivers, despite averaging more aerial yards per target than anyone else in the YAC top 10—an incredible feat for an incredible player.
And he passed from this offense. Yet the Chiefs, as a team, enter Week 12 having amassed the most YACs in football (1,612), which is more than 150 yards behind the second-place team (Bengals at 1,458). Remarkable.
Kansas City remains the scariest YAC team without Hill talks about the genius of Patrick Mahomes and the genius of Andy Reid’s plan. In the thrilling Week 11 win over the Chargers in Los Angeles, a game the Chiefs didn’t have Mecole Hardman or JuJu Smith-Schuster, Mahomes’ offense still averaged nearly 7.00 YAC per reception (6.95 per accuracy). We’ve long known about the magical things Mahomes can do as a passerby and efficient scrambler. His ability to improvise is the ultimate luxury for an offense.
But the team’s established YAC prowess is part of the reason the Chiefs remained the gold standard of offense in the Mahomes era.

Kansas City Chiefs Year 6
Statistics 2022: 10 games | 66.3 pcs | 3,265 passing yards | 8.2 years | 28 touchdown passes | 7 INT | 238 yds of running | 1 rushing touchdown | 4 fumbles
On some future winter evening, Chiefs tight end Jody Fortson will be lounging by the fireside — a flock of grandkids draped around him — recounting haul stories in one of the juiciest pitches ever written by Patrick Mahomes. Another week of pro football action, another wonderful and nearly flawless outing from Mahomes, who found touchdown droid Travis Kelce for a scoring hat-trick on a night when Kansas City’s wideout cast was reduced to nearly nothing. zero. The MVP derby is all but over, unless Mahomes falls off a cliff or is kidnapped in the middle of the night and taken away from the sport he currently dominates. Even Fonzie stands in awe of the game’s crowned king under the center.
Week 12 NFL Singles Against Spread | The player
Los Angeles Rams to Kansas City Chiefs (-14.5)
Patrick Mahomes made it look easy Sunday night against the Chargers. He caught the ball with 1:46 left and the Chiefs trailed 27-23. They ran 75 yards in 75 seconds to clinch a 30-27 victory. The Chiefs look like an offensive behemoth and have won four in a row.
This Rams season is a disaster. They have a differential of minus 59 points. This is the worst score in NFC. I’m already without Cooper Kupp, and now Matthew Stafford is in concussion protocol.
That’s a large number, but the Chiefs are a well-oiled machine and the Rams can barely field a team.
Pick: Chiefs (-14.5)
Bleacher Report’s Expert Week 12 NFL Picks | Bleach report
With the exception of O’Donnell, our team is tied in points with Kansas City. Moton explained why he felt comfortable in his decision to back the Chiefs with a 14.5-point spread.
“If a team can cover a huge line against a lesser opponent, Kansas City can do it,” he said. “This season, the Chiefs had a pair of 21+ point road wins against the Cardinals and 49ers. Even if they are 1-3 against the spread as home favorites, they will face an opponent without their best offensive playmaker in Kupp and with Perkins or John Wolford in place of Stafford. By the way, in an unexpected move, Los Angeles released its leader, Darrell Henderson Jr., on Tuesday.
“The 15th-ranked Saints offense racked up 27 points against the Rams defense with Andy Dalton at the helm. As the master of top-level offense, Patrick Mahomes will be like a shark who smells blood in the water at Arrowhead Stadium’s GEHA Field. Kansas City bombs Los Angeles to cover the spread.
Score prediction: Chiefs 34, Rams 16

Texans swap QB Davis Mills for Kyle Allen, source confirms | ESPN
The Houston Texans have benched starting quarterback Davis Mills, with backup quarterback Kyle Allen taking over for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, a source confirmed to ESPN on Wednesday.
The bench comes on the heels of Mills’ worst performance of the season Sunday in a 23-10 loss to the Washington Commanders. Against the Commanders, Mills completed 57.6% of his passes for 169 yards and two interceptions, including a pick six on the opening drive.
Texans coach Lovie Smith declined to name a starting quarterback during his Wednesday press conference, saying he didn’t want to “give the opponent an edge.”

Packers’ Aaron Rodgers confirms right thumb is broken | ESPN
Aaron Rodgers never felt the need to go into detail about his right thumb injury for one reason: He would never stop the Green Bay Packers quarterback from playing.
That’s why it wasn’t until Wednesday when he finally — and reluctantly — confirmed that he was indeed broken.
“It makes no difference to me playing,” Rodgers said. “It makes no difference. You saw the tape on my thumb. It didn’t make a difference.

Chiefs Market Movers ahead of Week 12 against the Rams
Offensive Linemen Orlando Brown and Trey Smith: Much of this week’s talk has been – fittingly – about Isiah Pacheco. Rhyme aside, Kansas City’s running game is as much (or more) dependent on front boys than rock carrying boys. Last Sunday, Brown, Smith and company were able to do what they do best: hit people in the running game. The Chiefs seemed to run more power plays that suited both their style and the skills of their running backs. As a team, they rushed for 163 yards, averaging 6.0 yards per carry. This kind of balance makes the Kansas City offense much more efficient and also hard to beat. The Rams present another opportunity for these guys to establish themselves on the field, which will hopefully result in a comfortable lead.
