Latest NF Arizona Diamondbacks L Power Rankings: Where Do Chiefs Sit After First Loss of Season?

Are they still No. 1?

The Kansas City Chiefs lost their first game of the season Sunday afternoon, fa Arizona Diamondbacks Custom Jersey lling to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 19-13, at Arrowhead Stadium.

Despite the loss, the Chiefs remain one of only two teams in the NFL with at least five wins, with the oth er being the Philadelphia Eagles, who fell to the Chiefs in Week 2, 27-20.

As is always the case on Tuesday mornings, the experts from all the national platforms came out with their latest NFL power rankings.

So, the question became—even with the loss—did the Chiefs remain No. 1 again this week?

The answer: yes.

Here’s what Analyst Elliot Harrison had to say:

“The Chiefs finally fall in the standings, but not in the Power Rankings. Kansas City was bound to lose at some point…”

Click here for Harrison’s full breakdown, which has some interesting information when looking at just how impressive the Chiefs have been this year, particularly their quality of wins.

The Ch Custom Didmondbacks Jersey iefs have three wins against teams currently ranked in their top seven.

The Eagles are ranked at No. 2 (Chiefs beat them Men’s Authentic Arizona Diamondbacks Customized Stitched Alternate Red Baseball Jersey  27-20 in Week 2), the Patriots are No. 6 (Chiefs beat them 42-27 in Week 1), and the Washington Redskins are ranked No. 7 (Chiefs beat them 29-20 in Week 4).

Rounding out the rest of their games, the Texans are ranked No. 14 (Chiefs beat them 42-34 in Week 5), and finally, the Los Angeles Chargers are ranked No. 20 (Chiefs beat them 24-10 in Week 3). The Steelers are ranked No. 4 after their win over the Chiefs last S Men’s Personalized Arizona Diamondbacks Home White Authentic Baseball Jersey Cheap unday.

The folks at Sports Illustrated also had the Chiefs at No. 1, with them picking up seven of a possible 12 first-place votes.

Finally, the folks over at ESPN Personalized Diamondbacks Jersey  also have the Chiefs at No. 1 again this week.

Here’s what they had to say:

“The undefeated season is over, and if the Chiefs want to bounce back from a 13-point effort against the Steelers, they’ll have to do it on the road. They travel to Oakland, Dallas and New Jersey to face the Giants for three of their next four.”

From the Grill to the Gri Arizona Diamondbacks diron, Roy Miller’s Journey Back to Kansas City

Defensive tackle Roy Miller spent summers  Arizona Diamondbacks Custom Jersey working at Kauffman Stadium as a teenager

Sometimes when times are tough, life has a funny way of bringing you back to where it all began.

That was the case for former Kauffman Stadium food service employee and current Kansas City Chiefs’ defensive tackle Roy Miller, who returned to the Truman Sports Complex this season after a 15 year hiatus elsewhere.

“I did everything Men’s Authentic Arizona Diamondbacks Customized Stitched Alternate Red Baseball Jersey  from putting hot dogs on rollers to grilling burgers and all that stuff,” Miller said. “It’s just crazy. I think it’s wild how I was there as a child and now I’m working here. It’s just a very crazy situation that I’ve been through.”

Miller, who grew up in Texas, would visit Kansas City in the summertime with his dad to spend time with his grandma as a teenager.

It was during those summers that Miller started working at Kauffman with his cousins to make a little money.

“I was a hard worker as a child, so I did a lot of odd jobs – like fixing fences in high school,” Miller recalled. “I always had a good work ethic.”

That work ethic only intensified throughout a standout tenure at the University of Texas and an eight-year NFL career.

“My dad used to tell me stories about Kansas City football players that he met as a child and the impact they had,” Miller said. “Going up here to the Royals’ stadium as a kid, I definitely had a higher appreciation for professional sports and it lit that fire for me.”

But that was all in jeopardy last seas Personalized Diamondbacks Jersey on, when a ruptured Achilles tendon threatened to bring his career to an end.

Which brings Miller back to Kansas City.

The Chiefs signed the 30-year-old defensive tackle on August 2, inviting him to continue his career across the parking lot from where it all began so many years ago.

Miller took to social media on Sunday to share his r Men’s Personalized Arizona Diamondbacks Home White Authentic Baseball Jersey Cheap oundabout story.

“I pass by (Kauffman) every day coming to work and it’s just something I’ve been thinking about for a long time,” Miller said. “I just figured I’d say something about it.”

Now back in Kansas City, Miller can again spend time with his grandma while also showing off her excellent cooking.

“She’ll drop some food off and most of the guys will run over to my house to grab some. It’s a little bit of everything, especially when this fool right here puts in an order,” said a laughing Miller, gesturing towards fellow defensive tackle Chris Jones. “She’ll cook whatever we want.”

A lot has happened in Miller’s life over the past 15 years, though as of right now, it’s as if nothing’s changed.

Chiefs In Arizona Diamondbacks jury Update: Tyreek Hill Practicing on Tuesday

The Kansas City Chiefs were back at practice on Tuesday as they prepare on a short week for Thursday Night Football against the Oakland Raiders.

Head Coach Andy Reid provided an update on the Chiefs’ injured players prior to practice, including running back Charcandrick West and wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who both exited last week’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers early.

“Charcandrick is in the concussion protocol, so he’s going through that and will not practi Men’s Authentic Arizona Diamondbacks Customized Stitched Alternate Red Baseball Jersey ce today, Custom Didmondbacks Jersey ” Reid said.

Also absent from practice was wide receiver Albert Wilson, who missed last Sunday’s game with a knee injury.

“Albert Wilso Men’s Personalized Arizona Diamondbacks Home White Authentic Baseball Jersey Cheap n is getting better with his knee and we’ll just see how he does here today,” Reid said.

Hill practiced on Tuesday after suffering a neck injury against Pittsburgh.

“Tyreek was evaluated for a concussion, didn’t have a concussion, and never was in the protocol,” Reid said. “That was his deal and he’s been fine since.”

The Chiefs will travel to Oakland tomorrow before taking on the Raiders on Thursday night.

Chiefs vs. R Arizona Diamondbacks aiders: Game Preview

The Chiefs take on the Raiders on Thursday Night Football

GAMETIME: 7:25 p.m. CT on Thursday, October 19

LOCATION: Oakland-Alameda Coliseum in Oakland, Custom Didmondbacks Jersey  Calif.  

HOW TO WATCH: CBS (KCTV5 Local)/NFL Network/Amazon Prime

HOW TO LISTEN: 101.1 The Fox

The Kansas City Chiefs may have dropped their first game of the season last Sunday, though they didn’t have much time to think about it.

It was only a handful of days ago that Kansas City fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers in a close one, but it’s already in the rear view mirror as the Chiefs clash with the Oakland Raiders on Thursday Night Football.

It’s the 114th edition of one of the greatest rivalries in all of sports, with Kansas City owning a 60-51-2 all-time advantage, and it’ll again take place on the big stage in front of a national audience.

If that seems familiar, it wasn’t too long ago that these two teams matched up under the lights, doing so on Thursday Night Football at Arrowhead Stadium last December.

The Chiefs won that game, 21-13, behind a strong performance from quarterback Alex Smith, tight end Travis Kelce and wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who returned a punt 78 yards for a touchdown as the crowd chanted his name.

The contest was one to remember and another entry into Kansas City’s stretch of success against their AFC West foe.

Since arriving in Kansas City in 2013, Smith is 7-1 against Oakland, leading the offense to nearly 30 points per game. He’s posted a passer rating of 106.2 in those meetings, the best mark ever for a Chiefs’ quarterback against the Raiders, tossing 14 touchdowns to just three interceptions.

The Chiefs could use another stellar performance from their signal caller on Thursday night in a season that’s been rich in them.

Smith leads the NFL in passer rating (119.2), completion percentage (72.9) and yards per attempt (8.53) while ranking third in yards (1,637) and tied for fifth in touchdowns (12). His passer rating topped 100.0 in each of his first five contests before slipping a bit against Pittsburgh, though he still threw for 246 yards and a score without a turnover in the game.

The Raiders, meanwhile, have struggled against opposing passers this season, yielding the second-highest passer rating to opposing quarterbacks (105.4) in the league, and they’re the only team yet to haul in an interception.

Setting the tone for the offense will again be rookie tailback Kareem Hunt, who leads the NFL with 885 yards from scrimmage. Kansas City’s third-round pick out of the University of Toledo has tallied at least 100 yards of offense in each of his first six career games – an NFL record – and will be looking for more on Thursday.

Smith, Hunt and the rest of the Chiefs will find themselves up against a Raiders team that’s looking for answers.

Oakland raced out to a 2-0 start before dropping each of its last four contests – its longest losing streak since 2014 – and the offense has struggled mightily.

The Raiders have averaged just 13 points per game during the four-game slide, and Pro Bowl quarterback Derek Carr has been in and out of the lineup with a back injury.

While healthy, Oakland’s young quarterback has been one of the best in the league in his four-year tenure as a professional, but he’s never been able to find much success against Kansas City, posting a 68.1 passer rating in six career games against the Chiefs – losing five straight.

RELATED: Chiefs vs. Raiders: Five Things to Watch

Though despite their recent struggles, Carr and the Raiders have playmakers all over the field.

It starts with running back Marshawn Lynch, who was coaxed out of retirement to play for his hometown team this offseason.

Arizona Diamondbacks Custom Jersey ynch is averaging just 3.7 yards per carry this season, but his physicality as a runner is something the stat sheet can’t illustrate.

“He’s the same guy,” said Defensive Coordinator Bob Sutton. “He runs hard and he’s a contact runner – he loves contact. He’s going to seek you out and with his size and strength, this isn’t a guy you can tackle (easily).”

Carr also has a slew of talented receivers in Michael Crabtree, Amari Cooper, Jared Cook and Cordarrelle Patterson, among others, and led a 12 win team just a season ago wi th largely the same cast of characters.

“They have a balanced (attack),” Sutton said. “They have some really talented receivers, the tight end has added a dimension to them, Marshawn’s added that sort of nasty power running and Carr is playing as well as anybody over the past couple years.”

Talented as the Raiders are, the Chiefs are more than capable of leaving Oakland with a win and a bit of history, too.

Kansas City will put two streaks on the line on Thursday night, both of which are tied for franchise records.

The first is the Chiefs’ nine-game winning streak on the road, which dates back to Week 4 of last season. Kansas City is averaging 31.1 points in those games, winning five of them by double digits, and one more victory would set the franchise’s all-time mark.

The Chiefs have also been perfect against the AFC West in their last 12 contests, including a sweep of the division last season. The streak is the longest active run in the NFL, and is tied for the longest in team h Men’s Authentic Arizona Diamondbacks Customized Stitched Alternate Red Baseball Jersey istory.

Those records – and another entry into the win column – are all attainable on Thursday as the Chiefs take on their classic rival in primetime.

Chiefs vs. Raiders Ray Nitschke Jersey : Five Things to Watch

Here are some storylines to keep in mind as the Chiefs face the Raiders on Thursday night

The Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders will meet at the Oakland Coliseum Thursday night for the next chapter in this storied rivalry, which dates back more than five decades.

Among the many obvious reasons a win would benefit both teams right now, the Chiefs could actually guarantee themselves an all-time winning record at the historic venue of their historic rival with a victory Thursday night.

The Chiefs currently carry a 19-18-1 record against the Raiders at the Oakland Coliseum, and with the Raiders reportedly leaving for Las Vegas after next season, there are conceivably only two more opportunities for these teams to meet there.

While this record has nothing to do with the players and coaches fighting for the AFC West division right now, the longstanding rivalry and what it all means in the bigger picture shouldn’t be lost either.

It does mean something.

This current Raiders’ team has dropped four straight and are coming off a last-second loss on a game-winning field goal by the Los Angeles Chargers last Sunday, while the Chiefs are looking to bounce back after their first loss of the season, a 19-13 defeat at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Chiefs haven’t lost back-t Vintage 1969 Green Bay Packers Ray Nitschke Throwback Team Color Jersey Mitchell and Ness o-back games since October of 2015, and they’ve won five straight over the Raiders and 12 straight over the AFC West overall, not to mention they have the chance at a franchise-record 10th-straight road victory.

Furthermore, this Raiders’ team came into the season with high expectations, and on Thursday, the Chiefs have a chance to further distance themselves in the standings with a victory.

So, there’s plenty on the line for both teams.

Here are five things to watch Thursday night:

1.     How do the Chiefs respond after their first loss of the season?

The Chiefs have to do a couple of things this week that they haven’t yet experienced this season. They’re preparing for a game coming off a loss, and they’re preparing on a short week.

On Tuesday afternoon, Chiefs’ quarterback Alex Smith spoke about the challenge of preparing on a shortened schedule.

“You are cramming mentally,” Smith said. “Coaches, players included, getting the game plan in and getting it down. Walking the fine line of new stuff in a short week. You have to, in a loud place and noisy environment, be able to master all that stuff when things are really going fast.

“But as soon as the whistle blows, you go. You are playing ball. At that point, it is a football game, and you are going, and you don’t think any different. Really, it is just the week of preparation leading up to it that is different. It has to be.

“You are cramming a week’s worth of preparation and healing into a couple of days.”

Most of the players and coaches spoke about how there really isn’t time to dwell too much on the loss to the Steelers last Sunday. Everyone is too busy preparing for the Raiders.

The Chiefs are 7-1 against the Raiders over the past five years under coach Andy Reid, but as he said once again this week, he knows the challenge the Raiders present.

“On the offensive side, they’ve got good speed, good offensive line. They’ve got a runner there (in Marshawn Lynch) who brings a certain toughness to that group and still runs hard, and a quarterback (in Derek Carr) who’s a pro bowl player,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid explained. “You’ve got to make sure you’re ready to go both in the run game and pass game against them.

“And then defensively, again, they’ve got good team speed, they play hard, they have a good scheme, so you have to make sure to take care of business there and play well.”

The Chiefs are too caught up in their preparation process to let one loss affect the next game, and the fact that they spend time during OTA and training camp practices going over their divisional opponents’ schemes, it’s not a bad thing that they’re facing a familiar opponent on a shortened week.

2.     Can the Chiefs continue their success against Derek Carr?

Carr has struggled in his career against defensive coordinator Bob Sutton and the Chiefs, winning just once in six tries with numbers well-below his career averages.

In six career games, Carr has completed just 55 percent of his passes with six touchdowns, five interceptions, and paltry 4.92 yards per attempt average. That’s a player who has completed 63.1 percent of his passes with 68 touchdowns and just 23 ray nitschke packers jersey  interceptions over the last two-plus years.

Earlier this week, Carr spoke with the local Kansas City media about facing the Chiefs.

“They’re one of best teams in football, and they’re well-coached from the head coach all the way through,” he explained. “I was able to spend some time around those guys at the Pro Bowl a couple of years ago. I just got to hear them coach, I got to hear them talk, I got to hear them teach, and you can see why they’re one of the best team’s year in and year out.

“They have a great staff and you put great players on a field that you have a great staff, you’re going to produce wins and do really good things.”

Carr is helped by one of the league’s best offensive lines, and particularly, one of the NFL’s best centers in Rodney Hudson, who began his career with the Chiefs. Hudson has yet to give up a single quarterback pressure in more than 200 pass-blocking snaps so far this season.

Despite past success against him, Sutton spoke about the challenge of facing Carr and whether he knows something everyone else doesn’t.

“I wish there were a secret,” Sutton laughed. “I wouldn’t share it with you anyways, but I would just say that we try to play him hard, we understand what we’re trying to do and that’s important.”

3.     Will we see improvement from the Chiefs’ run defense?

The Chiefs allowed Steelers’ running back Le’Veon Bell to rush for 179 yards on 32 carries last Sunday. It was the most rushing yards allowed by a Chiefs’ defense to a single player in almost a decade.

“There’s nothing that was earth-shattering…need better footwork, need better hand placement, and we needed to get off blocks better,” Sutton explained of what he saw on tape after the game. “Then, when we get a chance, need to tackle better. They were more fundamental things, and like I said, this is not to take anything away from Pittsburgh, they did a great job of blocking, a great job of running, and so we got to get that part improved here.”

Sutton also spoke about the challenge this week of facing Marshawn Lynch, who joined the Raiders this offseason after a year of retirement.

Lynch, who averaged a ridiculous-3.6 yards after contact last week against the Chargers, has carried the ball 70 times for 257 yards and two touchdowns this year.

“He’s the same guy,” Sutton explained of what he’s seen from Lynch—the five-time Pro Bowl running back. “He runs hard, he loves contact, and he’s going to seek you out on some degree here. He’s underrated as far as his ability to do those inline cuts and what happens is he gets what we call the soft shoulders, and you end up overrunning him. You end up on the outside and you’re reaching back in, and with his size and strength, this isn’t a guy you can tackle like that.

“So, you’ve got to stay inside-out, and you’ve got to get good contact on him and get feet moving on contact.”

The Chiefs ability to stop the run and subsequently get in situations in which they can get after Carr will be a key to this game. It’s part of the reason they’ve had success against him in the past, and it’s obviously going to be important again this week.

4.     Can Alex Smith continue his successful ways against the Raiders?

Including his time with the San Francisco 49ers, Smith carries a 9-1 overall record against the Raiders.

In those games, Smith has completed 63.1 percent of his passes with 19 touchdowns and just four interceptions. That’s Ray Nitschke Jersey  more touchdowns than he’s thrown against any other team.

In fact, to take it a step further, since joining the Chiefs, Smith has played in 67 games, and in seven of them, he finished with better than a 9.89 yards per attempt average.

Four of those seven games had come against the Raiders, including both matchups last year, when he finished with a 10.15 and 10.18 yards per attempt average, respectively.

“These are all big games within our division,” Smith said earlier this week. “Every rivalry is unique and certainly the Raider one is a special one. You have to embrace that challenge. Here we are going into a hostile environment. It’s also what makes this such a unique rivalry. Going in there and going and trying to come away with a win.

“Certainly, you’re not unaware of that; you are not naive to that. You know what it is.”

Smith currently leads the league in completion percentage (72.9), yards per attempt (8.53), and quarterback rating (119.2).

For Smith to have some success, the offensive line is going to have to deal with one of the league’s best pass rushers in Khalil Mack, who currently ranks fifth in the league with 23 quarterback pressures.

Since coming into the NFL as the No. 5 overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft out of the University of Buffalo, Mack ranks third in the NFL with 61 tackles for loss, and his 34 sacks rank seventh.

In his last four games against the Chiefs, Mack has 28 tackles, four sacks, and a forced fumble.

5.     How will the new faces continue to get acclimated to the offense?

With multiple injuries right now to a few skill position players, most notably receivers Chris Conley (Achilles) and Albert Wilson (knee), along with running back Charcandrick West (concussion), some new faces are getting some run with the first-team offense.

And their ability to step in and make plays could be the difference between a win or loss on Thursday night.

At receiver, one of the young guys getting some work is second-year receiver Demarcus Robinson, who finished the Steelers’ game with one catch for 15 yards.

“Demarcus did a good job,” Chiefs’ offensive coordinator Matt Nagy said earlier this week. “He had some opportunities there and when we went back, he was getting lined up in the right spots, making the correct route adjustments with the different presses and techniques they give you coverage-wise, but he did everything we asked him to do and we’re going to need that to continue here.”

Along with Robinson at receiver, the Chiefs could also see an extended look at running backs Akeem Hunt, who joined the team two days before the season opener against the Patriots, or C.J. Spiller, who just signed again this week after spending the whole offseason with the team.

Reid was non-committal about either of their roles for the game Thursday, but with West missing practice again on Tuesday as he’s still in the NFL’s concussion protocol, the job and snaps behind rookie Kareem Hunt could be something to watch.

Hunt still curr Vintage 1969 Ray Nitschke Green Bay Packers Mitchell and Ness Away White Jersey Throwback ently leads the league in rushing. He has carried the ball 106 times for 630 yards and four touchdowns this year.

Last week against the Steelers, Hunt became the first player in NFL history to begin their career with six-straight games with at least 100 yards from scrimmage. He had just nine carries for 21 yards but provided a spark for the offense with his five receptions for a team-high 89 yards.

The Raiders have allowed three opposing running backs to gain at least 100 yards from scrimmage this season. The Chargers’ Melvin Gordon had 150 yards and two touchdowns, while the Broncos’ C.J. Anderson had 115 yards, and the Redskins’ Chris Thompson had 188 yards with a touchdown as well.

The Raiders lost each of those games.

Chiefs Announce High School Coaches of the Week f Ray Nitschke Jersey or Week Seven

The Kansas City Chiefs have announced Coach of the Week honors for the seventh week of the season. The awards go to Lee’s Summit North’s Jamar Mozee and Shawnee Mission South’s Brett Oberzan

The 2017 High School Coach of the Week fueled by Gatorade is a joint initiative of the Kansas City Chiefs and the National Football League. This program is designed to recognize and reward Kansas City area high school coaches for superior performance on a weekly basis. The Chiefs Coach of the Week award is intended to honor individuals who are shaping today’s youth and tomorrow’s leaders.

Lee’s Summit North defeated Liberty 30-15 to finish the regular season with a 6-3 record. The win guarantees the Broncos their first winning season in almost two decades.

“This is definitely an honor to win, but I have to give credit to my players and my coaching staff for preparing to compete last Friday against a good Liberty football team,” Mozee said.

Shawnee Mission South took down Shawnee Mission West 33-14 for the Raiders’ first win over the Vikings in more than a decade.

“It’s a great honor to be named Chiefs Coach of the Week,” Oberzan said. “This means that there are a lot of people involved for this to be able to happen, from the parents, administration, coaching staff and players. This is definitely a team effort and I’m proud of our kids the way they fight each week.”

As a result of this honor, both schools will receive a $500 player health and safety grant from the Hunt Family Foundation and each school will receive a Gatorade Sideline Kit, including co Vintage 1969 Ray Nitschke Green Bay Packers Mitchell and Ness Away White Jersey Throwback olers, bottles and Gatorade products. Additionally, both coaches will be presented congratulatory footballs autographed by Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid and a certificate recognizing their selection. Mozee is now qualified for the Missouri Coach of the Year Award, while Oberzan is now qualified for the Eric Driskell Kansas Coach of the Year Award, both of wh Ray Nitschke Jersey Mitchell and Ness ich will be voted on later this fall.

Prior to the 2017 season, the Kansas City Chiefs announced that the Kansas High School Coach of the Year Award would be renamed in memory of Eric Driskell, the former head coach at Blue Valley High School. Driskell was a three-time award recipient during his seven years with the football program and spent 14 years as the head coach of the boys’ track and field teams.
