Good morning, Addicts! The Kansas City Chiefs are not playing on this Sunday, giving us one more day of anticipation/fear/self-loathing/another horrific adjective. Meanwhile, we can watch the rest of the AFC West in action with the San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos on the road against the Minnesota Vikings, Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions, respectively.
Super Bowl I loss still hurts Chiefs – Blair Kerkhoff of Kansas City Star
"In two weeks, Kansas City would play for the first major-league sports championship in its history, and few outside the Chiefs’ camp believed they had a chance against the more established league and a Packers team coached by Vince Lombardi that had just won its fifth NFL championship in seven years."
De’Anthony Thomas is looking to get back on track on MNF – Adam Teicher of ESPN
"Thomas missed most of the preseason because of a calf injury, so he had just one return under game conditions heading into the regular season. That could be a factor, but Toub said Thomas worked on returning kicks in practice even while he was injured."
Kansas City is not taking hard-line approach to turnovers – Adam Teicher of ESPN
"The Kansas City Chiefs last week killed their opportunity to beat the Denver Broncos for the first time since 2011 by committing five turnovers. One gave the Broncos the ball at their 9, another at the Chiefs’ 15 and Denver scored the winning touchdown with 27 seconds left on a fumble return."
Marcus Peters shows off an impressive combination of skills – B.J. Kissel of KCChiefs.com
"On the field, Peters has displayed the kind of playmaking ability through his first two games that made him one of the top talents in the 2015 NFL Draft, and his performance thus far has been anything but unassuming."
