Only one team have been able to get the measure of Patrick Mahomes and Super Bowl champions the Kansas City Chiefs in 2020.
The Chiefs have an 8-1 record this season, with their sole defeat coming at home to divisional rivals the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 5.
Kansas City this week have the opportunity to avenge the 40-32 reverse, however, with superstar quarterback Mahomes long since having recovered from that blip.
The game in Las Vegas is among the key Week 11 matchups we preview with Stats Perform data.

Kansas City Chiefs at Las Vegas Raiders – Sunday, 8.20pm (all times Eastern)
– The Chiefs have started the season with wins in their first four road games for the second year in succession. The only time in franchise history the team started a season 5-0 on the road was in 1966, when they went 7-0 away from home en route to a loss to the Green Bay Packers in the first Super Bowl.
– Mahomes has played two road games against the Raiders in his career, throwing four touchdown passes without an interception in each contest. Mahomes’ only interception of 2020 came in the Week 5 loss to Las Vegas by Jeff Heath; since then, he has 13 TD passes and no interceptions in 144 pass attempts.
– There are two quarterbacks in the NFL who have double-figure touchdown passes and fewer than three interceptions: Mahomes (25 TDs, one interception) and Derek Carr (16 TDs and two interceptions). Among QBs in league history with at least 1,000 pass attempts, Mahomes is first in touchdown/interception ratio (5.32) and Carr is eighth (2.48).

OTHER KEY GAMES
Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens – Sunday, 1pm
– After going 7-1 at home a season ago, Baltimore have lost twice at M&T Bank Stadium in 2020, including their most recent home game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers three weeks ago. The Ravens have not dropped consecutive home games since Week 7 and 9 of the 2018 season – just before Lamar Jackson took over as starting QB.
Philadelphia Eagles at Cleveland Browns – Sunday, 1pm
– Carson Wentz has completed under 60.0 per cent of his passes in each of his past five games, the longest streak by any player this year. He has a career-low 58.2 completion percentage in 2020, the second-lowest mark among 33 qualified players (min. 14 pass attempts per team game; Drew Lock – 55.0).
Green Bay Packers at Indianapolis Colts – Sunday, 4.25pm
– The Packers’ 24-20 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars last week gave Matt LaFleur a 20-5 regular-season record as a head coach. He is the sixth head coach since the merger to have 20 or more wins through 25 games.
Los Angeles Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Monday, 8.15pm
– The Bucs snapped a five-game losing streak against the Rams by scoring a franchise-record 55 points in last year’s meeting. That was also one point shy of the most allowed by the Rams all-time.
