Research Notes

  • Case Keenum was 3-of-5 with a touchdown passing more than 20 yards downfield Sunday. The Texans had attempted only six such passes in their previous four games (completing two).

  • Alex Smith completed 21 of his 28 throws (75.0%) within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage Sunday, his highest percentage in a game this season. The Chiefs had 157 yards after the catch Sunday, their second most in the last two seasons. Dexter McCluster had 70 of those yards after the catch, the second most in his career and third most for any Chiefs player in the last three seasons.

  • With news that Case Keenum will start for the Texans...Keenum will be the 7th quarterback to make his 1st career start vs Andy Reid as head coach. Three of the last 5 quarterbacks to do so failed to lead their team to a win.
