Good morning, Addicts! The Kansas City Chiefs are preparing to take on the Tennessee Titans in their third (and most telling) preseason game on Friday night. Frankly, that game means a bit more than the others after the disaster that took place during Week 1 of last year. It would be nice to see the Chiefs hammer the Titans, getting a tiny measure of revenge. So is Kansas City having a good week of preparation thus far? Let’s find out.
This is the news you need to know:
Marcus Peters continues to look like a steal for Kansas City – Adam Teicher of ESPN
"Rookie cornerback Marcus Peters again had the big play of Kansas City Chiefs practice on Monday. In a two-minute drill featuring the starters on both sides of the ball, Peters cut in front of Jeremy Maclin to make an interception of an Alex Smith pass on fourth-and-goal from the 4."
The rookie is made of all the right stuff thus far – Adam Teicher of ESPN
"Al Harris, the Chiefs’ assistant defensive backs coach, then called Peters over to discuss the play. Harris was animated in making his point, but Peters just listened with an occasional nod. When Harris was finished talking, Peters headed back to rejoin his teammates."
Alex Smith says he has been too smart for his own good in preseason – Associated Press
"After struggling through two preseason games, Smith said Monday that part of the issue is that he has too good of a grasp of the Kansas City offense. So rather than react to what defenses are giving him, Smith is trying to outwit them, leading to incompletions and interceptions."
Dontari Poe could be back for Week 1 – Adam Teicher of ESPN
"Poe had the surgery, called a microdiscectomy, on July 15 in his hometown of Memphis. He rejoined the Chiefs in time for the start of their recently concluded training camp and, though he never made it to the practice field while his teammates were working, he was a common sight around the campus of Missouri Western State University."
