Marcus Peters is on a nice run against the Broncos

Marcus Peters hasn’t had an interception since Week 6 largely because teams stopped throwing his way. The last time the Chiefs played the Broncos they didn’t go his way very often and instead torched Phillip Gaines.

Because of numbers like these below, I wouldn’t expect Peters to be targeted much in this game. Here is Peters in his past three games against the Broncos (via NFL Research):

Comp-Att: 9-24

Yards: 91

TD-INT: 1-2

Passer rating: 23.4

On the other side of the defense, Terrance Mitchell has been playing well the past few weeks. I hope this means that Broncos QB Trevor Siemian looks Peters’ way more often because I know that Peters has to be dying to pick one off. Last season his longest interception drought was three weeks. He’s due.
