Morton's seven catches were his most since having seven at Cincinnati (11/16/03) and his 111 yards were his most since having 153 at Arizona (11/18/01) as a member of the Lions.
KC's Defense Keeps Streak Intact Without a 300-Yard Passer: KC's defense also owns a streak of 19 straight games without allowing a 300-yard passer, a mark which ties with Carolina as the second-longest such active streak in the league behind only Miami (20 games).
