"Chase is definitely capable," Flowers said, per ESPN.com. "We've got to go in ready to play. I know him. He's a fiery guy. He can make all of the plays. And this is his moment. He feels like this is his moment, so we've got to be well prepared."
In his one start in Week 17 versus the Chargers last season, Daniel completed 21 of 30 passes (70 percent) for 200 yards and a touchdown. He also ran seven times for 59 yards.
Given the lack of playmaking weapons outside (the Chiefs still do not have a touchdown pass to a wide receiver this season), expect K.C. to focus on the ground game and short passing attack, much the same as they did with Smith under center.
"The offense doesn't slow down at all with him at the helm," Manti Te'o added. "It's basically the same thing, just a different number."
