Defensive Notes

Cornerback Marcus Peters played all 64 defensive snaps on Saturday in his return to the field following a team-imposed suspension, and he made the most of each. The third-year corner tallied three tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a team-high three passes defensed on the night.

Defensive backs Steven Nelson and Daniel Sorensen were also on the field for every defensive snap against Los Angeles. Nelson notched four tackles (3.0 solo) while Sorensen recorded five tackles (4.0 solo) and a tackle for loss.

Safety Ron Parker played 60 defensive snaps (94 percent) on Saturday, recording three tackles, two passes defensed, a fumble recovery and his second interception of the season. It marked the first time this season that Parker didn't play every defensive snap.

Linebacker Derrick Johnson played 43 snaps (67 percent), leading the team with six tackles.  

Offensive Notes

Wide receiver Tyreek Hill played 63 of Kansas City's offensive plays (95 percent), hauling in five passes for 88 yards and a touchdown. His 64-yard score put the second-year wide out over 1,000 yards receiving for the season.

Running back Kareem Hunt was on the field for 43 of the Chiefs' offensive plays (65 percent), amassing 206 yards of total offense and two touchdowns. Hunt rushed for 155 yards on the ground and now has 1,201 on the season, passing the late Joe Delaney for the most rushing yards by a rookie in franchise history. Delaney's record stood for 36 years.
