Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes Expanding Practice Role, but No Commitment on Return | Chiefs Digest

“Patrick’s going to practice today,” Reid said. “I can’t give you an answer on how much. We’re going to see how he does, then I think it’s going to be day-to-day, but we got to see how he handles (it).”

Mahomes took No. 2 reps during position drills in the portion of practice open to the media. Matt Moore took the No. 1 reps, and Reid said he plans to prepare both quarterbacks as potential starters.

“We’ll get both guys ready to go like we did last week and we’ll take it from there and see how it all works,” Reid said.

Kansas City Chiefs 31, Tennessee Titans 20

1 p.m. ET (CBS) | Nissan Stadium (Nashville, Tenn.)

Beating the Vikings with Matt Moore should let the rest of the Chiefs know this team has championship-level talent, if they didn’t know it already. The offense’s ability to move the ball without Patrick Mahomes proved it wasn’t just a one-man show, with Tyreek Hill ready to take over this stretch run. The team’s attack has come into focus with Sammy Watkins back as the No. 2 wideout and Damien Williams as the clear No. 1 back, while Chris Jones is back for a quietly improving defense. Led by the safety tandem of Tyrann Mathieu and Juan Thornhill, K.C. has shown it’s capable of slowing limited opposing offenses. That’s all the Chiefs need, and limited is exactly what the Titans‘ offense remains. It hasn’t progressed since the Mike Mularkey-led playoff win over the Alex Smith Chiefs that helped usher in the Mahomes era in Kansas City. Twenty-two months can feel like a lifetime in the NFL.

Eric Fisher returns to practice for Kansas City Chiefs | Arrowhead Addict

Fisher is now set to return to practice this week, although that doesn’t necessarily mean anything in terms of his readiness for Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans. Such an injury can easily be re-aggravated and the Chiefs are going to want to play things safe with Fisher so he’s healthy when it matters most—the postseason.

If Fisher can return it will help to cement a front line that has been problematic at times on the left without both starter Andrew Wylie at left guard and Fisher at tackle. The team also lost Laurent Duvernay-Tardif to injury, leaving center Austin Reiter, a newcomer this year, and Schwartz as the lone reliable starters.

Raiders Have Better QB Situation Than Chiefs, Says Former Pro Bowler | Heavy

“Let me tell you why I love Derek Carr: the price,” said Whitlock on Speak For Yourself. “He’s like a Hyundai Palisade, you get all the luxury of a Cadillac Escalade, but there’s no sticker shot. The Raiders paying Carr $20 million this season, next season and the next two seasons after that. This is a dream scenario.

“This is the Tom Brady-New England Patriots scenario. Apologies to my favorite quarterback, Patrick Mahomes – the Raiders have the best quarterback situation in the AFC West.”

We could hear Hill shout, “Hey, D-Will, you slow, bro.”

Williams also joked, “He’s going to try and embarrass me on TV.”

Hill had to add that Williams was lucky that he wasn’t playing defense. And that’s true: Williams would have been a goner.

Strategic or mischievous? The Chiefs have yet to tell the Titans if Patrick Mahomes will play | The Athletic

Less than an hour later, backup quarterback Matt Moore did his best to not reveal the Chiefs’ plans before their first practice of the week. Moore spoke mostly in generalities. He said Reid hadn’t told him who would be the starter or who would take the majority of repetitions with the first-team offense.

“We’re in the same pattern we’ve been in the past couple weeks,” Moore said. “We’re day-to-day and moving forward similar to last week. Practice-wise, take advantage of the reps you get.”

Titans Coach Mike Vrabel Holds Fond Memories of Kansas City, Andy Reid | Chiefs Digest

“I remember being a team that was (4-12) one year and 10-6 the next one, won the division, was proud of that,” Vrabel said. “The fans, I remember the fans. The Hunt family, great people. It was a great place to finish up my career, a great town, kids loved it.”

He even has one football memory that doesn’t involve the Chiefs – “(My son) Tyler was a part of the fifth-grade Super Bowl team over there.”

Vrabel also still remember his go-to barbecue restaurant in Kansas City. He said his family lived a half mile from a Jack Stack Barbecue location.

“Used to call on the way home from games on Sunday afternoon and just ask them how many pounds of wings they had left, and they said 9,” Vrabel explained. “I’d say, ‘Beautiful, just pack me up 9 pounds and I’ll pick them up in about 30 minutes.’”

TACKLES: Ryan Ramczyk, New Orleans Saints; Mitchell SchwartzKansas City Chiefs

I couldn’t choose between Ramczyk and Schwartz at right tackle, so I took the easy way out in a year where Baltimore’s 
Ronnie Stanley may be the closest there is to a standout left tackle. A masterful technician, Schwartz has kept Chiefs quarterbacks clean through injuries to the left side of the line. I’d give the slight edge to Ramczyk for stonewalling a series of stud pass rushers, including former Defensive Players of the Year J.J. Watt and Khalil Mack.

Kansas City Chiefs

The starting quarterback spot for Sunday’s game against the Titans looks to be 
Patrick Mahomes‘ to lose. The Chiefs increased his workload in practice Wednesday as they began preparations for the Titans. If his knee holds up, there’s a good chance he will play. But Chiefs haven’t committed to that yet, so this could again come down to the end of the week. — Adam Teicher

Week 10 NFL picks against the spread | The Athletic

Titans (+4.5) vs. Chiefs

Patrick Mahomes’ reaction after the Chiefs beat the Vikings was one of my favorite parts about Week 9. He was jumping up and down on the field with genuine joy for his teammates even though he didn’t play.

While other coaches consistently make excuses about injuries, Andy Reid once again won with a backup quarterback in Matt Moore. It looks like the Chiefs will get Mahomes back for this one, and I think Kansas City starts to go on a run with an eye toward earning a first-round bye in the playoffs.

The pick: Chiefs (-4.5)

That eye better be on winning a SB and nothing else.

Not sure which thread to put this in, so I will put it in multiple threads:
I will be traveling to Arrowhead for the first time in over 6 seasons this year for the Raiders game. I know that there have been a lot of updates, and other cool things introduced to the “game day experience” since I was there in 2013, and was wondering the best way to experience Arrowhead again. In the past, I spent my pre-game drinking in the parking lot, and scrambling to the gate (usually too late to see kickoff). This time I want to do it right, since I probably won’t be back for another 5-6 years.

Mostly, I want to go visit the Chiefs Hall of Honor, I want to be in my seat for the National Anthem, and it would be cool to see the new drum deck. Also, this is a long-shot, but I also was wondering how those lucky fans get to be in the Tunnel when the players are coming off the field. How do you get to do that? Is it for STH only? Can I pay my way in? I’m looking to have a fun, mostly sober, experience that I will remember for a long time. Help Chiefs fans!!

As bad as the Chargers were they still had a shot to win that game Rivers just isn’t a late-game QB never has been never will be. All they needed was like 20 yards and they had 3-time outs and a minute on the clock. Even with the ref’s helping them every step of the way they still couldn’t get it done.

If the Raiders defense can do that shit to the Chargers, this team is going to feast. Our D-Line is HOT right now, and we should get better turnover luck soon.

Gordon looks like a pretty big guy standing next Mitch. I really don’t care enough to look up his height though.

He’s 6’2.

Gordon Ramsay was recruited to play pro soccer at like 15, but he jacked up his knee right away. That’s when he decided to go to culinary school. So Gordon knows the whole athlete life. He currently does marathons/biathalons all over the world.
