Up and down: Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill has been weathering a roller coaster of a season | Fox4KC

It would be an understatement to say that Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill has had an eventful year, one marked by the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. He was suspended and became a pariah. He was absolved and returned with fanfare.
Then, Hill welcomed the start of the season by signing a $54 million, three-year contract extension, only to break his collarbone in the opener against Jacksonville. He returned for a solid stretch of games but hurt his hamstring against the Chargers a couple of weeks ago in Mexico.
Forgive him for having a bit of nausea after such a roller coaster ride.
“For me, I know he is someone I wouldn’t want anyone else for,” Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes said.

NFL suspends former Chiefs defensive back, now with Arizona, for betting on games | KC Star

The NFL suspended Arizona Cardinals defensive back Josh Shaw through at least next season — more than a yearlong ban — after its investigation concluded that he bet on league games earlier this season.
Shaw played for the Chiefs in 2018, appearing in four games, most notably allowing a crucial catch to Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski to set up a game-winning field goal in New England.
In a news release, the NFL said it uncovered no evidence that Shaw used inside information to place his bets. It did not say whether he bet on games involving own team, but evidence suggested his teammates and coaches were unaware he was gambling on NFL games.

Chiefs vs. Raiders: Injury Report | The Mothership

Damien Williams: Out

The Chiefs’ secondary has gone from weakness to strength. Here’s how they’ve done it | KC Star

The Chiefs have allowed only 137 yards per game to opposing wide receivers this season, which ranks fifth in the NFL, and that’s despite a relative difficult schedule — Kansas City has faced none of the league’s eight worst-rated quarterbacks. Only two quarterbacks have topped 300 yards against the Chiefs, and one of them — Chargers veteran Philip Rivers — also threw four interceptions.
As a whole, the Chiefs’ passing defense ranks sixth on Football Outsiders’ DVOA, adjusted for schedule and recency. They rated 26th in the same category last year, sparking an offseason in which they were linked to just about every cornerback on the market.
General manager Brett Veach implemented a multifaceted approach. Free agency. Draft. In-house improvement.

Chiefs’ Damien Williams won’t play in AFC West showdown against Raiders due to rib injury | CBS Sports

With Williams out, expect LeSean McCoy and Darrell Williams to get the bulk of the carries for the Chiefs on Sunday. McCoy, signed by the Chiefs shortly after he was released by the Bills, leads the Chiefs with 400 rushing yards and three touchdowns while averaging 5.1 yards per carry. He has also caught 24 of 28 targets for 157 yards and a touchdown. 
The Chiefs will face a Raiders defense that is 14th against the run this season. Conversely, Oakland has struggled in pass defense, as they are 28th in the league in passing yards allowed through 11 games. That should lead to a big day for quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who threw for 443 yards and four touchdowns in Kansas City’s Week 2 win over Oakland.

We need a new running back or two

11/30/2019 8:36 am

Not this season. We have enough mediocre running backs on the roster.

Draft one next year? Im fine with that.

I honestly do not know what backs are out there as FA’s but I do feel like we should draft someone next year, or start giving Thompson more and more reps.

Mahomes, Hill, and Kelce – the indispensable three of our offense. Everyone else has success due to the contributions of these three.

Nice win for the Wild. Bill Peters has no place in the NHL, but sadly there’s more work to be done to improve the NHL culture.

Now, we need to work on the black culture that believes it is acceptable to use the word “nigga”
