Game facts: Jaguars at Chiefs

New QB, new RB:  Kansas City will be without both its starting QB (Alex Smith) and starting RB (Spencer Ware) this week due to injuries. 

Been there before:  The RB who is expected to start for the Chiefs, Charcandrick West, saw significant playing time last season. He logged three games of 20+ carries in 2015, and the Chiefs won all three of those games.

Where's Maclin?:  Jeremy Maclin has fewer than 80 receiving yards in every game this season. He had 80+ receiving yards in five different games last year. Maclin (groin injury) is listed as questionable for Sunday. 

Kelce TD = KC win?:  The Chiefs are 10-2 when Travis Kelce catches a touchdown pass.  

Pass rush coming around?:  The Chiefs had a season-high six sacks against Indianapolis in Week 8. They had just eight total sacks prior to that game. 

Ball hawk:  Marcus Peters has 13 interceptions in 23 career games. Since 1980, only Everson Walls has more INTs in his first 23 games (16).
