He'll make his fourth straight start for the Chiefs this week, and though neither team is in playoff contention, Quinn said the teams won't just be playing out the string.
"Every game has importance to us," he said. "It tests your competitive nature as a man and what you want to get accomplished while you play in this league. Being in the position we're in right now, it's going to test each man ... because the aspirations you had at the beginning of the season ... the Super Bowl or playoffs ... aren't here. It tests how much you love the game.
"I want to try to win every game I'm playing in."
Bowe's Injury Costly To Chiefs But Provides Opportunities from The Mothership
Bowe's teammates know what they're losing in the star-WR's absence.
"Dwayne's a fighter," Chiefs T
Eric Winstonstated. "That's one thing, I've gotten to know him this year, and I've been really impressed with him. He's a guy that comes to play every week and he's had his ups and downs just like all of us have, but you know one thing: he's bringing his hard hat and his lunch pail and he's going to go to work and I respect the heck out of him. He got hurt throwing a block. That's the kind of guy he is. It's the way it goes. Someone's going to have to step up and get open and there are going to be some balls and some opportunities for some other guys."
With Dwayne Bowe injured and unavailable to play this week, the Chiefs have a desperate need for a competent wide receiver. On their bench, the Chiefs have one with more than 250 career catches and 3,330 career yards who had 61 receptions as recently as last season.

Charles Starring For Chiefs After Tragedy from The Associated Press via Yahoo! News
Jamaal Charles took the handoff on the first play of the game, skipped to his right and found a crease. He slipped through the hole, made a subtle cutback and then raced to the end zone.

Drew Brees Among Those Bound For Week 15 Fantasy Glory from USA Today
RB Jamaal Charles, Kansas City Chiefs: The loss of Dwayne Bowe (ribs) takes away Brady Quinn's best aerial weapon, leaving Charles as the only consistent playmaker in this pitiful offense. He's really all they have left, and with 100-plus yard games in four of his last five contests, the Chiefs will lean on him quite a bit. Oakland has given up the second-most fantasy points (22.3) to rushers in the last four weeks, too.
Carson Palmer Media Session from Raiders.com
On the Chiefs defense: "Very solid on defense. They have really cut down on giving up big plays. It is a very solid and stout group, tough to run the ball against.
