Denver Broncos: Head coach Vance Joseph knows the Rams' offence will be very difficult to stop on Sunday, but he noted it's not a unique test for his defence.

"It's not our first challenge on defence versus an offence like that," Joseph said Wednesday. "I mean we played Kansas City, very similar setup. But we're looking forward to it. It's going to be a nice challenge.

No one's stopped them, so it's our turn to see if we can." The Broncos held Patrick Mahomes to 15 of 29 for 151 yards and no touchdowns through three-quarters of Week 4 before collapsing in the fourth, and the Chiefs' 27 points were their fewest this season. The Rams have scored at least 33 in all five games.

Kansas City Chiefs: Though undefeated, the Chiefs have a few injuries stacking up at specific positions, most notably outside linebacker and safety.

Head coach Andy Reid said it's "a stretch" for Justin Houston (hamstring) to play Sunday night against the New England Patriots, while Tanoh Kpassagnon (ankle) has "a chance."

To compensate, the team brought back Frank Zombo -- who was among the final cuts after five years in K.C. -- and signed former Browns and Bills defensive end Nate Orchard.

The Chiefs also are thin at safety, where starter Eric Murray (ankle) missed Wednesday's practice and Armani Watts (core muscle surgery) is on injured reserve. Eric Berry (heel) remains "day-to-day," per Reid, despite missing nearly two months.

Los Angeles Chargers: Sunday's game against the Browns will pit Philip Rivers against Baker Mayfield, whose on-field fieriness and trash-talking tendencies drew some comparisons to Rivers during the pre-draft process.

Rivers acknowledged Wednesday that not everybody expects that sort of personality in a quarterback. "Everybody kind of has a certain prototype, I guess, that they see," he said.

"But shoot, I've learned -- I don't know Baker at all -- but I think you've got to know the boundaries, but I think you've got to be yourself. ... I think over time, if you're yourself and you do it the right way, then over time, people kind of figure you out."

Oakland Raiders: The Raiders are taking a bit of a different approach in their trip to London, as they'll arrive Friday morning. Like most teams that have played in London, the Seahawks will arrive Wednesday evening with hopes of better acclimating to the time change.

"We've done our research, I'm sure they've done theirs," head coach Jon Gruden said. "I've never done it, so I'm just going to trust our preparation was the right thing, and we'll go play."

Gruden also expressed excitement about the overseas trip. "It's a great opportunity to see the world and play football," he said. "How good does it get? [The players] get a bye week after this, so hopefully, they all look at it that way: positively."
