Chiefs coach Andy Reid sounded upbeat about Allen Bailey’s chances of returning to play in Sunday’s home game against the Oakland Raiders.
Bailey, reinjured a knee in Sunday’s loss to the Jets and played 46 of 91 snaps. He had played sparingly against the Bills the previous week after sitting out the Chiefs’ Nov. 19 game against the Giants., a starting defensive end
Bailey was one of four Chiefs who missed practice on Wednesday.
“He’s doing OK,” Reid said. “It’s precautionary. We’ll rest him today.”
Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters will be suspended for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid announced Wednesday.
"This was something Marcus and I discussed," Reid told reporters of his decision. "I'm going to leave it at that."
Peters' suspension comes after he threw a referee's flag into the stands during Kansas City's 38-31 defeat to the New York Jets in Week 13. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Peters is also being punished for walking off the field while the game was still going on.
Reid told reporters after the game Peters headed for the sideline because he had thought the referees ejected him for the flag toss.
Peters' outburst encapsulates the Chiefs' overall slump following their 5-0 start. They've lost six of their last seven games to slip into a three-way tie with the Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers for the AFC West lead.
The fact Reid is willing to suspend Peters for what could be a critical game in the division race against Oakland shows how seriously he took Peters' actions.
Kansas City ranks 28th in pass defense (252.8 yards allowed per game). Now, who's returning from a one-game suspension., it will be without its best cornerback ahead of a tough matchup against quarterback Derek Carr and wideout Michael Crabtree
The Kansas City Chiefs don't have a first-round pick in next year's NFL Draft, having traded it to Buffalo as part of the move that allowed them to select quarterback Patrick Mahomes in April. But that doesn't mean they aren't already looking at what to do when their turn to pick in Round 2 arrives.
In a Monday feature listing one college prospect currently on every NFL team's radar, particularly at the wide receiver position., Bleacher Report draft analyst Matt Miller said the Chiefs could look to add weapons around Mahomes in the draft
"With the team's first selection, it should be all about adding a weapon for Mahomes or fixing a secondary that's been awful outside of Marcus Peters this year,Authentic Doug Baldwin Jersey, don't be surprised to see a wide receiver prioritized."," wrote Miller. "Based on expected value in the second round and the talks I've had with scouting contacts in Kansas City
The name Miller suggested as a good possibility for the Chiefs in Round 2 would be Simmie Cobbs of Indiana University, 220) target who has 72 catches for 841 yards and eight touchdowns this season., a big (6-4
"Indiana's Simmie Cobbs Jr. would give Mahomes the sure-handed,Authentic Kam Chancellor Jersey," wrote Miller. , big-bodied target the offense currently lacks
With Chris Conley coming off a season-ending Achilles injury, Albert Wilson slated for free agency, as Miller mentioned -- but it is one of several areas the team needs to take a look at when the offseason proceeds., and no one grabbing hold of the receiver spots outside of Tyreek Hill,Authentic Amara Darboh Jersey, it wouldn't be shocking in the least to see the Chiefs search for help at the position this offseason. Wide receiver may not be the top priority on the Chiefs' list of needs -- that distinction would probably have to go to the cornerback position
Center Mitch Morse again went down with a foot injury, although he works best at center., causing Zach Fulton to move from left guard to center. Bryan Witzmann took over at LG. Fulton had a good game at both positions
-Receiver Albert Wilson saw a ton of snaps with 91 percent on offense. That was just as many as Tyreek Hill. Wilson has been a huge part of the offensive game plan this season.
-Normally running back Kareem Hunt sees around 60 to 70 percent of snaps. With Charcandrick West out, Hunt saw almost 90 percent. Akeem Hunt came in for the rest.
Tight end Orson Charles, saw a few offensive snaps. The Chiefs don’t run as many three tight-end sets as they did last year.,Womens Blair Walsh Jersey, who the Chiefs picked up last week
-Cornerbacks Terrance Mitchell and Darrelle Revis split snaps. Revis saw the first half and Mitchell the second. Coach Andy Reid said that he had Revis on a limited snap count since it was his first game back. Both Revis and Mitchell allowed a handful of catches.
-Linebacker Tanoh Kpassagnon continued to see an uptick in snaps while Dee Ford remained injured. Kpassagnon was on defense for 28 snaps. Hopefully, the rookie sees more playing time in the coming weeks.
That’s it for this week. The Chiefs return home to face the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, Dec. 10.
Linebacker Tamba Hali has been absent for two of the Chiefs’ last three games, but the team expects him to return to the field next week against the Oakland Raiders.
Hali missed Kansas City’s most recent matchup against the New York Jets in Week 13. Coach Andy Reid said Hali was held out of the game because the artificial turf causes swelling in Hali’s knee.
The 34-year-old Hali has participated in two games this season, notching one tackle in 36 defensive snaps.
With Hali’s nagging knee issues,Authentic Luke Joeckel Jersey, he splits time with Frank Zombo and sometimes rookie Tanoh Kpassagnon opposite Justin Houston., it’s clear that he will be on a limited snap count for the reminder of the season. When Hali does play
Revis, leaner than he was a year ago, his performance was rather pedestrian., had five combined tackles with 1 assist. Other than that
He certainly didn’t help his new team in the Jets’ 38-31 win.
The once shut-down corner only played 39 snaps and was taken out at halftime. He didn’t return in the second portion of the game as the Chiefs were trying to ease him back into playing.
Revis looked similar to the player Jets fans saw in 2016. He played far off the ball,Womens Luke Joeckel Jersey, and missed easy plays., giving receivers like Anderson a huge cushion
While the Jets didn’t blatantly attack their former star, they were clearly not hesitant to throw in his general direction.
Judging by his performance Sunday, the Jets are obviously happy with the decision they made to cut the future Hall of Famer this past offseason. The Jets let Revis go even though they still owed him $6 million this year.
Considering he’s mostly playing on New York’s dime, it was only fair that Revis dropped the ball on a few plays in the Jets win.
Andy Reid, the former BYU offensive lineman, the former Utah quarterback., wants everyone to take it easy on Alex Smith
At every turn this week, the Chiefs' coach has had to defend his veteran quarterback, so carefully has he protected his signal-caller., pointing out that the problems with the Kansas City offense extend far beyond him. Reid has even singled out himself for failing to live up to his own standards
But as bad as Smith has been lately, there is a nugget of truth to Reid's assertion: The problems in Kansas City extend far beyond one player., as the Chiefs have lost five of six
The offensive line. The wide receivers. Even star tight end Travis Kelce.
Everyone has had a hand in the offense's shortcomings.
"We all have responsibility to do our job. At all positions. Starting with me," Reid said. "That is not getting done the right way. It's not one guy. That has to be understood. It's not one person, as an offensive football team. Right now. And get that taken care of as a team. Not one guy.", and we all have to pull together as a football team. In this case
Yet it's no surprise the drumbeat has sounded loudly for Reid to turn to the backup quarterback, who is often the most popular player on a team.
The Chiefs traded up to get Patrick Mahomes II in the first round for a reason, and Smith's shortcomings have become clear over the years.
He struggles to throw the ball downfield. He's become trigger-shy behind a suspect offensive line. His decision-making has come under fire after an interception last week that sealed a 16-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills. And even his scrambling ability seems to have disappeared.
"Listen, when we watch film," Smith said., I'm watching film from my perspective. What can I do better, every single play? That's what you're going through
"Especially the last two weeks, there's been some plays that you'd love to have back. That's football though. You're not sitting there watching film, in times like this., making excuses for yourself, that's for sure
"You watch and what could I have done differently and what's going to help me next time."
For now, it appears Smith will have plenty of "next times" this season. So that means the Chiefs had better shore up their other problems on offense.
It seems like a no-brainer that NFL defenses would want to force third-and-long situations instead of third-and-short/medium, but it’s almost the opposite in the Chiefs’ case.
NFL Matchup posted a few more graphics (there’s good stuff coming from them
When facing third-and-short, Kansas City’s defense allows a 53.6 percent conversion rate, good for third best., good for ninth best in the league. Against third-and-medium,Womens Jimmy Graham Jersey, KC allows a 37.2 percent conversion rate
But when facing third-and-long, which is second worst in the league., the Chiefs allow a 34.7 percent conversion rate
The Jets beat the Chiefs on Sunday, but their bigger victory may have been over their own fourth-quarter mental demons.
After blowing fourth-quarter leads in three of their past four losses,Womens Doug Baldwin Jersey, holding on for a 38-31 win that moves their record to 5-7 and keeps their slim playoff hopes alive., the Jets did not let it happen against the Chiefs at MetLife Stadium
“It’s big to win one,” Jets coach Todd Bowles said. “It gives you a lot of confidence. You can breathe a sigh of relief before you move onto the next week. To come out with one of these finally is refreshing.”
The Jets offense controlled the game — putting up a whopping 42 minutes, 49 seconds in time of possession to the Chiefs’ 17:11. But the game still was close late thanks to the Chiefs’ big-play ability.
Chandler Catanzaro’s third field goal of the second half gave the Jets a 30-24 lead early in the fourth quarter. The Chiefs responded with a 40-yard touchdown pass from Alex Smith to Tyreek Hill to take a 31-30 lead with 9:13 left in the game. It was Hill’s second long touchdown of the half.
It looked like the Jets might let another game slip away, but Josh McCown and the offense refused to let it happen.
McCown gathered the offense and said,Womens Kam Chancellor Jersey, “Let’s go.” Then he led it on a 14-play, to make it 38-31., 75-yard drive that was aided by some terrible Kansas City penalties. It finished with McCown sneaking into the end zone from the 1. The Jets converted the two-point conversion, again aided by Chiefs penalties
” McCown said. “You guys talk about practice, we put a lot of emphasis on the things in practice,Womens Amara Darboh Jersey,“This is what we’ve been kind of building towards all year, but you can’t — no matter what you want to do, like situations you want to create — you can’t create this exact moment in practice. It’s learned in-game. For us, it was like, ‘We have a moment constructed for us right here where we can take another step’. It was just like,Authentic Blair Walsh Jersey, and how we almost made that play. It was great. Everybody’s attitude was positive in the huddle and upbeat. There was a belief there that, ‘Hey, let’s stand up and do it. Let’s go do it.’ And let’s not talk about how we were close, ‘You know what? This is the time we’re going to get over the hump.’ It was great.”
McCown had a huge day. The 38-year-old continues to defy expectations. He finished the game 26-of-36 passing for 331 yards,Authentic Sheldon Richardson Jersey, with one passing touchdown and two rushing touchdowns.
“Josh McCown played his ass off today,” Jets linebacker Jordan Jenkins said.
107 yards) had their second straight huge week. The Jets were particularly strong on third down, their highest total this year. The 38 points were the most the Jets have scored in two years. Wide receivers Jermaine Kearse (9 catches, 157 yards) and Robby Anderson (8 catches,The Jets offense put up 488 total yards, converting 13-of-20.
Smith found Hill for a 40-yard pass to the Jets’ 23, the defense had to come up with one stop. It was something they struggled with all day. Kansas City scored four touchdowns of 20 yards or more. On the final drive,After the Jets scored the go-ahead touchdown, but then the Jets stopped them on four straight plays to seal the victory.
The Jets spent the week talking about finishing in the fourth quarter after last week’s collapse against the Panthers. Coaches had periods in practice that were devoted to being the “fourth quarter.” Players and coaches held up four fingers and shouted “fourth quarter” trying to get the team over that mental hump. It worked on Sunday.
we had a couple of games that we just kind of let go in the fourth quarter,“We made a big emphasis this week on just finishing games,” Kearse said. “We said enough is enough. I think we did a great job just going out there and competing all the way through the game.’’
On Sunday, it looked like the start and not the finish would be the Jets’ problem. Tight end Travis Kelce scored touchdowns of 22 and 36 yards on the Chiefs’ first two possessions to give them a 14-0 lead not even five minutes into the game.
just calm down,” Jenkins said. “After we were down 14 points, we just looked at each other and said look,“We just had to calm down, do our [stuff] and come out on top. There’s nine minutes left in the first quarter. We knew we had a lot of ball left. Take it one play at a time and we’ll come out on top.”
Kelce also had a 32-yard catch on the first series. But after those three first-quarter catches, he did not have another catch until the final drive. Hill also gave the Jets headaches with touchdowns of 40 and 79 yards. He finished with 185 yards on six catches.
” cornerback Morris Claiborne, but we’re going to hold everybody else and we’re going to come out with the win. Those are two good players. I wish we could have done a better job on them than we did, who gave up one of the Hill touchdowns,“Those are two good players, said. “That’s like double-teaming LeBron. He might get his 50, but we got the win.”
The Jets were able to grab a 21-17 lead by halftime with scores from Bilal Powell, McCown and Matt Forte.
The win keeps the Jets alive in the AFC wild-card race. They are two games behind the Ravens with four to play. The Jets don’t see why they can’t make it.
” Forte said,“You either believe that we can do that or you’ve got to get out of the way, “because everybody else believes.”
