Locked on Chiefs – Keys to downing the NY Jets
By Ryan Tracy
Thursday’s Chiefs practice welcomed Tamba Hali, Eric Berry and Sam Barrington back to practice.
LDT and Charles were limited in their participation but that is a step in the right direction for both of them. Parker Ehinger and Jah Reid remained out and will more than likely be out again for Sunday against the Jets. Charles is wanting to come back this week and play but KC better make sure he is fully healthy before he steps foot on the field.

The Jets could be without Brandon Marshall on Sunday when they come to Arrowhead. If Marshall is out it will be a big hit to the Jets passing game and will put even more pressure on Matt Forte to be the workhorse running back. Eric Decker was limited in practice as well so even if he plays he will not be 100%. The Jets strength is their defensive line and they should be good to go for Sunday.
Going old School
The team the Chiefs played last Sunday got destroyed by the New England Patriots with a third string QB. the Patriots used a throw-back run-first approach that one analyst (yours truly) has been pointing out for Andy Reid to adopt.
The loss to the Texans will be hard to bare later in the season if it comes back to cost KC in a bid for the playoffs. While the Texans were considered a good team, NE has shown that they have flaws that can be exploited. Kansas City will have to wait until the postseason to see if they can stick with the Patriots this season but they have to put together a big winning streak again to start that conversation.
