Chiefs players send prayers to Cowboys QB Dak Prescott after gruesome injury | ChiefsWire

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was among the first players to offer his prayers following news of the injury. Mahomes has always been an advocate of Prescott’s.  Early this season, he even mentioned that he studies his game and borrows from him at times. Chris Jones, a college teammate of Prescott’s at Mississippi State from 2013-2015, sent his prayers after seeing his friend and former teammate suffer the injury. Juan Thornhill, who suffered a season-ending ACL injury in 2019, sent his prayers to Prescott. He knows all too well how tough it is to come back from a bad injury.

Kelechi Osemele will miss considerable time with torn knee tendons | AA

The Kansas City Chiefs will be smarting from their game against the Las Vegas Raiders for much longer than the next week. Not only did the team lose a shocking game to their division rivals, but they also lost starting guard Kelechi Osemele for the foreseeable future. Osemele tore tendons in both knees, according to head coach Andy Reid, who gave injury updates to reporters after the game. Kelechi Osemele tore tendons in both knees and Sammy Watkins hurt his hamstring, per Coach Reid. Osemele left the game early in the first quarter while trying to hustle and block downfield for quarterback Patrick Mahomes who was scrambling for a short gain. Osemele went down on a non-contact play, and the Chiefs had to call a cart out to remove him from the field.

Tyrann Mathieu on Raiders: ‘We won’t ever forget this day’ | AA

“I thought their coaches did a great job of catching us in certain coverages, catching us in certain calls … We’ll learn from it,” he said. “We’ve got a lot of tough guys in our locker room, a lot of guys that are gonna be motivated from this. We havent’ lost a football game in a while, so it’s good to have some motivation. So going forward, that’s what we’ll lean on. We won’t ever forget this day. We’ll see them again. We’ll be ready next time.”

Raiders end Chiefs’ winning streak with 40-32 upset | PFT

The Raiders led by double digits late in the fourth quarter. Patrick Mahomes, making his 41st career start counting the postseason, has never lost by double digits. The Chiefs did avoid losing by double digits. Mahomes, though, threw his first interception of the season. With 5:31 remaining and the Chiefs trailing by nine, Andy Reid elected to go for it on fourth-and-seven from his own 28. Mahomes tried to find Travis Kelce and instead found Raiders safety Jeff Heath, who returned it 47 yards to the Kansas City 2-yard line. Josh Jacobs‘ 2-yard touchdown run, his second score of the game, extended the Raiders lead to 40-24.

Kelce’s 12 targets were a game-high, and this was his first 100-yard game of the season. Kelce found the end zone for the third time in five weeks with a seven-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to pull the Chiefs within eight points. The tight end’s OPI penalty earlier in the game cost Clyde Edwards-Helaire a touchdown catch. Averaging 9.2 targets per game, Kelce is the No. 1 tight end and gets a date with the Bills in Week 6.

NFL Week 5: What we learned from Sunday’s games | NFL.com

1) Given Patrick Mahomes‘ 12-1 record vs. the AFC West entering Sunday, the Raiders didn’t figure to be the team to hand the star Chiefs quarterback his first loss of the season. They did it, on the road, as much with defense as a dynamic offense. Mahomes made his usual assortment of big plays, throwing for 340 yards, but a lengthy defensive sequence for the Raiders made all the difference. Trailing, 21-10, late in the first half, the Las Vegas defense limited KC to three points over six consecutive possessions to flip the game. By the time that sequence ended with Mahomes’ only interception in the fourth quarter, the Raiders led, 33-24, and finished the job from there.

NFL Sets New Schedule for Patriots, Broncos, Chiefs, Bills, Dolphins, Chargers | B/R

The NFL’s current plan is contingent on the Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills playing their Week 5 game Tuesday. The Titans shut down their facility again Sunday after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19, putting that game in jeopardy. With the Titans and Bills still set to meet Tuesday, Buffalo’s Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs has been moved from Thursday Night Football to Monday, October 19.

‘It Didn’t Work, What We Were Calling,’ — Andy Reid Identifies Flaws After Chiefs’ 40-32 loss to Raiders | SI.com

“We hadn’t had all these penalties, so that part was new,” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said. “Then, we really haven’t given up that many big plays. So, those things, we’ve just got to make sure that we clean that up. If you kind of narrow it down, that’s the problem. And I could’ve put our offense in a better position that second half. That didn’t take place. We weren’t able to move the ball very well, so I’ll be able to look at that too.”

“They just got behind us,” Reid said. “And I’ll look at the tape and see exactly what went on there, but I would say a couple of them were just beat, and then other ones I’m not sure we were doing the right things. That’s how these things go when you have big plays on you.” “It didn’t work, what we were calling,” Reid said. “You got to go back and look at that.”

Can’t win them all. The penalties were costly and I do still wonder how accurate some of those calls were. Not saying that was the reason we lost, but to take basically 3 TDs off the board? Idk about that.

I don’t care if Patrick leaves the pocket early. I don’t care if he ever stays in the pocket. Normally when a QB scrambles it takes away half the field, not with him. What it does do is breakdown the secondary, and creates more options. The Kid can throw from anywhere to anywhere at anytime. I’ve never seen a QB able to contort his body and throw strikes the way he does on a consistent basis.

Quite a bit of reporting on Kelce moving up our all time receptions list. Personally call me back towards the end of the year when he passes otis taylor (and bowe) for receiving yards. (At that point he’ll still be 3000 yards behind Tony)

The stat Ive been watching more is mahomes moving up our all time yardage list. He zoomed past Elvis on sunday to 7th all time with 10886 yards. He should pass mike livingston (who?) this week and Steve deberg in a couple more weeks to put him in the top 5. Gonna have to wait another year to pass Alex and Bill Kenney (who?) who are both over 17000. Trent a year more (over 21000) could he possibly do it next year? Then just Lenny Cool (over 28000).

Ill always remember living in Baltimore when the Ravens picked up Elvis after their super bowl win. People were so excited and I just told them to be careful what they wished for.

I thought I saw Mahomes leaving the pocket early at times. Of course I also saw our tackles letting defensive ends blow by them like they were matadors, so there seems to be plenty to work on.

Are we still waiting to find out if Bills/Titans happens on Tuesday to know whether we play Thursday or not?

Yes. If the Titans have any more positive tests the whole thing probably gets rejuggled again.

I don’t like losing any more than anybody else. But to see 40 points put up…at home…by the RAIDERS! It is not going to be a good day.

Home field doesn’t matter as much this year all games are basically neutral fields currently.

A full crowd definitely would have helped. Defense looked pretty blah in the second half. Definitely recall at least one business decision by matheiu on the last raiders drive.

Of course we cant blame the lack of crowd for our offense disappearing for most of the second half.

Take away from Raiders:

That Robinson catch that didnt count in the endzone though! Wow! 1 handed on the sideline.

That raiders OL though

Offense struggled after Watkins injury

Raiders where stronger/faster from start to finish

The best word to describe the gameplan- predictable.

Exactly. Playing us is the SB for mediocre and worse teams. We’re going to get everyone’s best shot.
