Coffee with the Chiefs – Marcus Peters is a star


Good morning, Addicts! The Kansas City Chiefs are resting up this week, getting ready for a Week 10 contest against the Denver Broncos. The Chiefs will be considerable underdogs in that game, but if they should find a way to earn the victory, they would actually be in great shape to make the playoffs.

In the meantime, there is all kinds of stuff to be watching this weekend. The Oakland Raiders are in action, taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field. The Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills will also match up, playing at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The loser will be 3-5 and technically falls behind Kansas City.

This is the news you need to know:

Marcus Peters is the standout among Kansas City rookiesAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Peters has both made his share of plays (he leads the Chiefs in interceptions with three and has their only pick-6) but he’s given up his share too. It figures that Peters will cut down on the number of big plays he allows as he learns more about the NFL game. If he then keeps up on the number of passes he breaks up or intercepts, the Chiefs will have one of the best cornerbacks in the league."

Chiefs schedule is set up for second-half runAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Here are the winning percentages of the remaining opponents for the AFC teams that have a better record than the 3-5 Chiefs but are not in first place in their respective divisions: 4-3 Oakland Raiders (47.1), 4-3 Jets (43.1), 4-4 Pittsburgh Steelers (50.8), 3-4 Bills (49.2) and 3-4 Miami Dolphins (44.8)."

Would Chiefs actually trade Jamaal Charles?Doug Green of Rant Sports

"Despite the team trying to limit his touches and keep him fresh, Charles still went down with a torn right ACL.  It’s his second major knee injury, and at 29 years old Charles isn’t heading into his prime anymore. Whether it will happen or not remains to be seen, but I think the stage is set such that the Chiefs could very well decide to move on next year."
