Coffee with the Chiefs – KC seeks revenge


Good morning, Addicts! The Kansas City Chiefs are back for their second day of practice during the first installment of Raider Week in 2015. The Chiefs are riding a five-game winning streak into Coliseum and are favorites to win the game over the Raiders.

However, this was the exact scenario Kansas City found itself in last year against Oakland. Unfortunately, the Chiefs lost the game to an 0-10 Raiders squad and it cost them the playoffs. Hopefully this time around, Kansas City can take care of business and get to 3-1 in the AFC West.

Here is the news you need to know:

Banged-up Chiefs hoping for better result this time in Oakland Alan Ferguson of FOX Sports

"Kansas City is currently three games behind Denver after rebounding from a 1-5 start and has a slim lead on a postseason berth. The Chiefs are in the first wild-card spot but are among five teams that are 6-5."

Allen Bailey’s return will be welcomed by Kansas City’s defenseJoel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

"The Chiefs defense, which is 12th in the NFL against the rush, has fared well enough without Bailey but he’s a good player and pass rusher so his return will be welcomed whenever it comes."

"So what does this mean? One could guess that this means the Chiefs are promoting another player from the practice squad to the active roster. A good guess if that happens would be Jarrod Pughsley, who was seemingly close to making the 53-man roster out of camp."

Kansas City impressed with Spencer Ware’s ability to carry workloadAdam Teicher of ESPN

"The Chiefs gave Ware a large amount of work, the likes of which he hadn’t experienced in his brief NFL career and had only handled a few times during his three collegiate seasons at LSU. Ware was in for 53 of the Chiefs’ 62 offensive snaps and got the ball 22 times, 19 on rushing attempts and three on pass receptions."
