Can the Chiefs Continue to Ride the Wave Against the Raiders? | si.com
After beating the New York Giants on Monday Night Football in Week 8, the Chiefs were faced with an uphill battle over the next three weeks of the season that lead up to their bye week. They were going to have to go through three first-place teams in a row.
Through Week 8, the Chiefs were 0-4 against first-place teams. The outlook was not great.

Chiefs place RT Mike Remmers on injured reserve | yahoo
According to the NFL’s official personnel notice, the Chiefs have placed RT Mike Remmers on injured reserve. Remmers has started games against the Washington Football Team and Tennessee Titans this season, relieving first-year RT Lucas Niang from his original starting spot. The 32-year-old veteran lineman first showed up on the injury report as a limited participant on Friday ahead of the Chiefs’ Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants.
