Three key players who missed the KC Chiefs’ 12-9 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday due to injury –– receiver Albert Wilson (hamstring), defensive Allen Bailey (knee) and outside linebacker Tamba Hali (knee) –– returned to practice Wednesday on a limited basis.
The Buffalo Bills made a swtich at quarterback last week and that was a mistake as Nathan Peterman threw five first-half interceptions. The Bills went back to Tyrod Taylor and the KC Chiefs know that’s the right choice. He had a huge game at Arrowhead Stadium two years ago.
Former Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey conducted his first interview, with ESPN’s Adam Schefter, since he was unexpectedly fired in June. Dorsey said he continues to follow the Chiefs and wants to get back in the game.
The Chiefs have lost four of their last five games, but so far, there has been no public frustration from players and coaches. Those who spoke to the media following the Chiefs’ most recent loss — a 12-9 road defeat to the previously 1-8 New York Giants team — all seemed to repeat the same message: how the Chiefs pull together from this point on will be very important to their final record. After all, at 6-4, the Chiefs are still two games ahead of second-place Oakland and Los Angeles in the AFC West standings.
Kansas Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters helped give out 250 frozen turkeys and canned goods for a family to fix a Thanksgiving meal at Gregg/Klice Community Center, 1600 John Buck O’Neil Way in Kansas City. Students from the Lincoln College Preparatory Academy football team also volunteered during the event sponsored by Peters’ Oakland based Fam1st Family Foundation that was titled “It Takes A Village Turkey Distribution,” and included appearances by teammates Eric Berry and Spencer Ware.
Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters is ready for a sitdown with President Donald Trump, it appears. On Monday, Trump tweeted about Peters’ mentor, Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch, writing that Lynch should be suspended by the NFL for the rest of the season because he stood for the Mexican national anthem and sat down “to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect!” Peters responded to Trump’s tweet, writing, “Was going on big dog I know we got a lot that needs to be talk about how about we set up a (sit) down with you,me,@MoneyLynch and more and we talk about some (stuff).”
Following the KC Chiefs’ 12-9 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday, beat writer Terez A. Paylor answered Twitter questions about whether this loss is rock bottom, whether the offense can be fixed and more.
Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy, who is now an analyst on NBC Sports, said the Kansas City Chiefs can turn around their fortunes if they let quarterback Alex Smith take some shots down field.
The Kansas City Chiefs lost 12-9 to the New York Giants on Sunday afternoon and after the game, The Star’s Sam Mellinger (@mellinger), Vahe Gregorian (@vgregorian), Blair Kerkhoff (@BlairKerkhoff) and Terez A. Paylor (@TerezPaylor) convened in the press box at MetLife Stadium to dissect every facet of the loss.
Once, the Chiefs defense was the biggest concern. But with no touchdowns in a 12-9 overtime loss to the Giants on Sunday, the offense has gone more than 90 minutes without a TD as the Chiefs fall to 6-4.
