  • Derek Carr: Chiefs suspending Marcus Peters means little to Raiders

Kansas City will hold out cornerback Marcus Peters for his actions in last week's loss to the New York Jets.

For the Raiders to beat the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday and retain at least a share of first place in the AFC West, Carr is going to have to be much better than the quarterback who has fared poorly in his first three games at one of the NFL's loudest stadiums. Teammate Steven Nelson earned a penalty for defensive holding on an unsuccessful two-point conversion try by the Jets. The Chiefs have slipped and lost six of their last seven games, which seems uncharacteristic under the leadership of Head Coach Andy Reid.

Also, Reid announced Wednesday morning that All-Pro cornerback Marcus Peters would miss this Sunday's game due to suspension. Alex Smith threw for just 181 yards in that loss, while a ground game that was churning out 100-yard performances early in the season was held to 55.

National Weather Service: Snow is possible on Friday evening
It's important to note that temperatures in the mountains will be below freezing, but they will be farther away from the moisture. There's a slight chance of snow today before 11 a.m. with the precipitation turning into rain with snow mixed in.

"It's something I've done in the past", Reid said.

Suspending Peters for this game could send a message that it's time for him to tone things down.

The Chiefs still had a little over two minutes left to tie the game, and Peters returned to the sideline as the offense made its last-gasp attemp. "It just depends on how they roll the coverages". "It is a tough situation. Coach made the decision though and we're going to go with it. Stakes are too big right now with what we've got in front of us, the opportunity in front of us". Since taking over as the team's Offensive Coordinator two weeks ago, Bill Musgrave has been unable to find a cure for whatever's plaguing his unit.

But you held out, didn't you Netflix? And here we are, with a final trailer for Black Mirror and the coveted release date. According to EW, however, horror-loving streamers can find the new season on their devices December 29.

Reid again reiterated that he does not believe this latest breakdown any discipline reflects poorly on his team's locker room as a whole.

"When [Peters is] not in there, you study the next guy", Carr said.

The explanation makes sense, considering tight end Travis Kelce was only fined, not suspended, for another incident with a referee -when he threw a towel toward an official who flagged him - during the Chiefs' 19-14 win over Jacksonville in November 2016. We have a good locker room; we have a mature locker room. "Nothing really changes in terms of putting a plan together". But, certainly, a lot of the leaders on this team are ready to go. "I think they understand it". "We still have to go out there and execute our game play". To go back and forth on all this stuff on this point is pointless.
