Chiefs coach Andy Reid, former Eagles boss, facing Cowboys for 31st time, has 18-12 record, including loss in playoffs with Philadelphia. ... Chiefs can set franchise record with 10th straight road win dating to Oct. 16, 2016, at Oakland. ... Chiefs QB Alex Smith has 16 passing TDs with no INTs, now four shy of Peyton Manning's record for TD passes without pick to start season. ... Rookie RB Kareem Hunt is first NFL player with at least 100 scrimmage yards in each of first seven games. He leads NFL with 763 yards rushing, 1,070 yards from scrimmage. He has six TDs, but none past five games. ... Travis Kelce leads NFL tight ends with 44 catches and 556 yards receiving. ... WR Tyreek Hill is averaging 101 yards receiving in past four road games, with three TDs. ... CB Marcus Peters had interception, forced fumble and 45-yard fumble return TD last week.

Fantasy Tip: Although Cowboys RB Alfred Morris has averaged 88 yards per game with eight TDs in 11 career games against AFC opponents, and RB Darren McFadden has averaged 109 yards in past three vs. AFC, probably better to stay away from both until there's better sense of who gets bulk of work without Elliott.
