Sherman, 25, was set to become a free agent after this season. The extension is for three years and is worth up to $7 million. "It’s huge," Sherman said. "I definitely wanted to stay here and be a part of this team. We’re doing some good things. I wanted to stay in Kansas City. It was definitely good to get it out of the way."
Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins will be ready to play against Kansas City this weekend despite hurting his groin in practice, a person familiar with the diagnosis told The Associated Press.
Bills running back Fred Jackson practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, but is still unsure whether he will be able to suit up Sunday against the Chiefs. "It was a good action, the first time I’ve done anything like that on it because it was out there at practice. It went well, we will see how it goes, the doctors are still being doctors and being cautious so we have to see how things go throughout the week," said Jackson.
It allowed the Chiefs to finish a brutal early stretch with a 3-3 record. It allowed them to remain a factor in the AFC playoff race. It was their first road win over the Chargers since 2007. It cemented the confidence of their rookie kicker after he struggled early in the season. And it gave the Chiefs their first fourth-quarter, game-winning scoring drive of the season since Smith arrived as their starting quarterback in 2013.
"That's one thing that coach (Andy) Reid harps on most in practice," Gaines said, "(is that) football is an unforgiving game, so anybody can get hurt on any play. So when you're in practice, whether you're in or you're just watching, you have to take mental reps -- you have to know what you're going to do, so when that time does come, you have to come in and perform. You can't just come in and not do your job."
Buffalo's Ralph Wilson Stadium has historically been a house of horrors for the Chiefs. They had lost six straight road regular season or playoffs games in Buffalo dating back to 1986 before winning 23-13 last season. Even then, the game was tied 13-13 in the fourth quarter, and the Chiefs wouldn't have won without two defensive touchdowns, an interception return by Sean Smith and a fumble return by Tamba Hali.
The Seahawks signed the 27-year-old on Tuesday, more than two months after the Buffalo Bills released Moeaki in final roster cutdowns in August after he suffered a training-camp hamstring injury. Moeaki said he was just recently cleared to play and worked out for one other team before the Seahawks came calling. "I was rehabbing in Chicago, and (the Seahawks) called over the weekend," he said. "Flew in Sunday and worked out Monday. That’s how fast it turns around."
