Siemian completed 20 of 34 passes for 368 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He added 23 rushing yards on five carries in the 30-27 loss.

Siemian struggled to get the offense moving in the first half, but things opened up as the game moved along and he totaled a career-high in passing yards while throwing for multiple scores with no interceptions for the second time in 2016. He struck from all over the field as well, completing touchdown passes of six, 35 and 76 yards. Siemian has been viewed as nothing more than a stopgap until Paxton Lynch is ready to take over, but he has acquitted himself nicely and has six games of at least 258 yards passing this year-- as many as both Matthew Stafford and Derek Carr. He will have the opportunity to build off of this performance next week against the Jaguars.
