Chargers Week; Knile Davis Steps In and More

Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning, and especially in the middle of the afternoon when things are starting to drag.  Here at Arrowhead Addict, we understand that for a Chiefs fan, coffee is simply not enough.

Here’s all that’s happening around Chiefs Kingdom today.

Welcome to The Fix.

The Kansas City Chiefs 17-27 loss at the hands of the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football is officially behind the team as they head back to work today to begin preparing for the visiting San Diego Chargers this Sunday at Arrowhead. As such, Reid Ferrin at the Mothership has posted the site’s initial preview to the Week 12 match up.

Whenever AFC West rivals, like the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers, get together, the game intensity is never lacking. So, as the Chiefs return to practice later today, continuing their preparation for the Chargers, who visit Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, here’s a brief look at some statistics from both teams, who are sure to make the Week 12 matchup a must-see event.

This past Sunday’s matchup in Denver saw rookie reserve running back Knile Davis carry the ball a couple of times. While he was no game breaker, allowing him to see some action adn building his confidence in a game time environment will pay divedends to the Chiefs as they move towards the playoffs and attempt to keep Charles legs (and blistered feet) fresh. Terez Paylor at the Kansas City Star posted a great piece on the rookie and his role moving forward.

“Jamaal (Charles), he can only do so much. And plus, it was a different evironment with the altitude, so every time he had a long run or too many (straight) plays, I just stepped in and jumped in for him.”

As I said, the team returns to work for the week and your favorite Chiefs podcasters return to AA Radio tonight to record a new episode. Make sure you catch the newest Chiefs talk here tomorrow and check out the AA Radio Page to make sure you’re caught up on all the past episodes.
