Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 10/22

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Today's KC Chiefs news from around the internet.

Good morning! We survived the bye-week. My wallet and liver feel a little better. Joel got hitched (we can only hope Chris had "the talk" with Joel so he didn't embarrass himself on the honeymoon). All in all, not bad. So, rested and recuperated we enter Raider Week.

Here is your Kansas City Chiefs news.

AFC West Breakdown from Chargers.com

The other two teams in the AFC West face off in Week 8 when Kansas City visits Oakland. Like the Chargers and Broncos, the Chiefs spent Week 7 at home for their bye week while the Raiders had a thrilling come from behind 26-23 overtime victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Both teams have struggled this season, as Kansas City sits at 1-5 while the Raiders are just 2-5. The key matchup to watch in this game should be the Chiefs offense against the Raiders defense. Statistically speaking, Kansas City owns a distinct edge ranking ninth in the league in total offense, averaging 378.7 ypg. Oakland sits at 24th in the league in total defense, giving up 386.4 ypg.

Letters: Working Moms, U.S. Spending, Royals and Chiefs from KC Star

Roses are red; violets are blue; the Royals are cheap; the Chiefs are, too.

Kansas City fans are great; they arrive early at the gate; they cheer for their teams; but the playoffs must wait.

Our owners are rich; but they don't seem to care; we invest so much time, money and energy; it just doesn't seem fair.

The players try hard; they aren't responsible for this scam; but they look overmatched; because team payroll is a sham.

David and Clark, we only have so much patience; and you are wearing it very thin; would you do us a favor; and at least pretend like you want to win.

Vincent Jackson Putting Together A Crazy Fantasy Day Against Saints from SB Nation

Coming into Sunday's game, Jackson had 20 catches for 370 yards and four touchdowns. He has quietly been one of the most effective wide receivers in fantasy football and now has scored three touchdowns in his last two games.

It's worth noting that Jackson's two monster performances in the last two weeks have come against the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints, two teams that don't defend the pass particularly well.

Speedway Buzz: Wreck Ruins Kyle Busch's Day from KC Star

Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and safety Abram Elam took advantage of this week's open date and attended their first race at Kansas Speedway, where they met with local drivers Clint Bowyer of Emporia and Carl Edwards of Columbia.

"It's been awesome," said Charles. "I watch it sometimes when it's on TV, and I mostly see crashes. The cars and fans and people tailgating outside, it's like football. Being inside here it's so amazing. I became a real fan today."

Week 7 Fantasy Feedback from NFL.com

This season, Run DMC has been healthy but hasn't produced on the field. Case in point: McFadden was limited to just 53 yards rushing in Oakland's loss to the Jaguars. Next week, the Raiders meet the Chiefs. If McFadden can't get something done against Kansas City, there might not be much hope for him this season.

Broncos vs. Giants, Peyton vs. Eli, In Super Bowl from The Denver Post

They can, should and will win the next seven games - at home against the Saints, the Chargers redux and the Buccaneers, and on the road against the Bengals, the Panthers, the Chiefs and the Raiders.

Then the Broncos play at Baltimore. Because of their injuries on defense, the Ravens are vincible.

The Broncos end with the Browns and the Chiefs at home.

They likely will be favored by the bookmakers in nine of their last 10.
