We take a look at the offensive line and defensive line and how the Chiefs won on Sunday against the Raiders.
The Kansas City Chiefs brought up Leon McQuay from the practice squad on Monday and placed safety Steven Terrell on injured reserve. Terrell had a big hit on Raiders tight end Clive Walford and looked to be injured on that play. He ended up coming back in the game a little later and had an interception to end the game. Terrell was looking to be a nice reserve for the Chiefs especially with Eric Murray being hurt a couple of games ago.
Marcus Peters returned to the Chiefs facility after serving his team imposed suspension this past Sunday. The interesting thing with the suspension is the entire team and secondary looked better without Peters. The secondary was chippy and physical on Sunday against the Raiders, something they haven’t been much of recently. The rest of the defense was also physical on Sunday and it started from the first snap.

The Chiefs will likely be practicing on Tuesday because they play on Saturday night. It will be interesting to see how they handle the short week this week. Injuries aren’t much of an issue as Terrell was the only injury from the Raiders game. The question is can Eric Murray or Mitch Morse return against the Chargers. If they head into the game without both of the players, it will be a hard game to win. Mitch Morse will be especially missed as the Chargers front is better than the Raiders. Kansas City controls their own destiny moving forward and its’s still hard to know who this team is even this late in the season.
