Coffee with the Chiefs – Mac Attack?


Good morning, Addicts! Hopefully you enjoyed your weekend with the Kansas City Chiefs winning. After watching those four football games, I think it is safe to say that we should all be thankful that the Cincinnati Bengals and Minnesota Vikings are on the teams we root for. That is some serious pain.

This week, the Chiefs will be getting ready for the defending Super Bowl-champion New England Patriots, who host Kansas City on Saturday afternoon at Gillette Stadium. Typically, the Chiefs would be huge underdogs going into this situation, but they are getting plenty of love from around the country.

Here is the news you need to know…

Jeremy Maclin has high ankle sprain, listed as day-to-dayAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Maclin missed a game against Pittsburgh earlier this season with a concussion, and rookie Chris Conley had six receptions in his place. Conley also replaced him for the remainder of Saturday’s game against Houston, and caught a touchdown pass on a play that was designed with Maclin in mind."

Chiefs lose more than Maclin if receiver can’t playAdam Teicher of ESPN

"The Chiefs played one game without Maclin this season: on Oct. 25, when they beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-13 at Arrowhead Stadium when Maclin was inactive because of a concussion."

Julian Edelman cleared to play after two months of inactivityFOX Sports staff

"Edelman missed the final seven games of the regular season after breaking his foot against the Giants on Nov. 15. Before going down, the 29-year-old had 61 catches for 692 yards and seven touchdowns in essentially half a season."

Bill Belichick says Chiefs hard to plan for Jimmy Golen of the Associated Press

"The loss to Kansas City in Week 4 last season was a tumultuous time for the Patriots, who were in the middle of what constitutes a slump for them: a pair of AFC championship game losses and a 10th straight year without a Super Bowl victory."
