Report: Chiefs-Bills Week 6 game tentatively rescheduled from Thursday to Sunday | ChiefsWire

The Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills Week 6 game on Thursday, Oct. 15 has been tentatively rescheduled, moving from “Thursday Night Football” to Sunday, Oct. 18. This comes following an earlier report from ESPN that the game could be pushed to Saturday. It’s all part of a chain reaction caused by the COVID-19 outbreak on the Tennessee Titans. The Chiefs-Bills game is moving to Sunday on a tentative basis, depending on whether or not the Titans-Bills game can be played this week. If there are more positive cases in Tennessee and the game with Buffalo can’t be played, the Chiefs-Bills game would revert back to its originally scheduled time on Thursday.

Chiefs promote DeAndre Washington | PFT

The Chiefs promoted running back DeAndre Washington from the practice squad to the active roster on Thursday. They didn’t have to make a corresponding move since Bashaud Breeland still has a roster exemption. The Chiefs also signed receiver Marcus Kemp to the practice squad.

Best call by a coach: Andy Reid’s fourth-down play-call in overtime, Week 2 Reid’s Chiefs had the ball on the Chargers’ 46-yard line on fourth-and-1 with 4:06 remaining in overtime. Reid could have punted or sent in Harrison Butker for a 63-yard field goal attempt, but he chose to keep the offense on the field, a decision that ultimately added 20.3 percent to Kansas City’s win probability (most of any coaching call this season), per EdjSports. The gamble paid off, as Darwin Thompson converted with a 2-yard gain. And Butker still got to have his shot at a career-long kick: It came from 58 yards later on that drive, and it was good, winning the game for the Chiefs.

Raiders’ Derek Carr on rival Chiefs: ‘To make it a rivalry, we have to win some games’ | NFL.com

Much of the Chiefs’ bulky advantage has come with the recent win-spurt over the past seven years. K.C. has won five straight versus the Raiders. Since Derek Carr took over as the starting QB for the Silver and Black, the Raiders have a 2-10 record in the rivalry games. “If we’re being honest, to make it a rivalry, we have to win some games,” Carr noted Wednesday, via Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Carr is also personally 0-6 at Arrowhead Stadium, where Sunday’s game will kick off. “Derek is going to hear it until he does it,” Raiders coach Jon Gruden noted of the winless road record in K.C.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Promises Increase in Productivity After Win Over Patriots | SI.com

“Ultimately I just feel like I need to just put my foot on the ground and get knocked on some runs,” Edwards-Helaire said. “Some things, we got to ultimately clean up as an offensive group — we got off to kind of a slow start. But, most importantly, go through film to see what I can fix and see what we can adjust as far as tomorrow on film then after in the walkthrough and go through any of the adjustments we need to make.’

Chiefs DE Taco Charlton emerging as key defensive contributor | ChiefsWire

“Yeah, Taco’s made some good plays for us, so that was one of them for sure,” Chiefs HC Andy Reid said following the Week 4 win. “It’s great for his career going forward, so that’s a positive thing for him. He’s all in for right now and enjoys being here and working hard.”

“I mean, that’s the good thing about having long arms, being able to reach around people,” Charlton said of the play. “As I was coming around the corner, I saw he still had the ball right in front of me, so I knew it was a perfect opportunity for me to come around with my arms and knock the ball out. I saw the ball out and I decided to pull his arms back and hopefully one of our guys would come up with it, and that’s what happened. I made a big play and we were able to score off it and capitalize.”

Andy Reid says “we’ll see” on both DT Chris Jones and CB Bashaud Breeland playing on Sunday. Says Breeland looked “relatively sharp” and had a heavy workload Friday. Jones moved around “pretty good.”

Just about another 7 weeks or so, and then we’ll have a vaccine that NFL players can be first in line for. Along with healthcare and public safety workers, of course.

Second in line, regular people at risk due to medical conditions, then elderly, and then general population. And lastly, politicians.

I hope it’s that fast. We definitely need to triage to see who gets it first.

I’d give it to all first responders and healthcare workers first, then elderly and sickly, then essential workers, then the general population including the NFL, then cats, then minks, then illegal immigrants, then politicians (if there’s any left).

Not all HC workers are equal. As one, I shouldn’t get it first, but thank you. ER personnel, ICU RNs & DRs, EMTs, First Responders. Then elderly/sick, then you can come back to the rest of us HC workers. Agreed though, Pols last. As any good general would do for his troops.

The Chiefs have signed RB DeAndre Washington from their practice squad to the active roster. The move gives the Chiefs four RBs, at least for now: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Darrel Williams, Darwin Thompson and Washington.

#Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (hamstring, knee) practiced fully today. As long as he does again tomorrow, look for him to play against the #Chiefs.

Source: The Titans’, Chiefs‘ and Patriots’ Thursday tests came back all negative this morning. So Week 5 is on track, at least for now, to be played in full.

The rescheduling of all these games, while somewhat necessary, is going to get exhausting.

So far it’s worked in the Chiefs favor. I’ll be really happy if that Thursday night game against the Bills is officially moved to Sunday. That was going to be the toughest game on the schedule.
