Good morning, Addicts! It’s HUMP DAYYYYYYYY. Everyone should be very excited that the Kansas City Chiefs are getting back to work, in preparations for the San Diego Chargers at Qualcommm Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Kansas City is favored by 2.5 points on the road, showcasing the national belief in it to pull out the victory.
Here’s the news you need to know:
Mitch Morse, Marcus Peters highlight strong draft class – Adam Teicher of ESPN
"Assuming the normal improvement for Peters and Morse, the Chiefs did well for themselves in the first two rounds. Peters, who had an interception on his first NFL play and a pick-six in his next game, is the sort of playmaking cornerback the Chiefs have lacked for years. The draft gets better if at least one other player goes on to become a solid contributor. Wilson and Conley have the best chances for that but neither is a lock."
Charcandrick West showcasing wonderful blend of power and speed – Adam Teicher of ESPN
"Charcandrick West’s versatility was one of the factors that led the Kansas City Chiefs to make him their featured back once they lost Jamaal Charles for the season with a torn ACL. The Chiefs believed they could use West for any type of play, as they did with Charles, and not have to go with different players for different situations."
Kansas City getting some buzz in the power rankings – Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride
"The reason to believe in the Chiefs is their defense. They are on a tear with games of points allowed of 13, 10, 13, 16 and 18. They are a top 10 team if their defense is playing like that. However, the offense, while scoring 29, 45 and 23 in their past three games, still needs some work. The Chiefs need more consistency out of the offense and more touchdowns in the red zone instead of field goals."
