Friday's KC Chiefs news

Raiders now sit alone atop AFC West | Silver And Black Pride

With the Raiders win over that same Chargers team last week and the Broncos suffering their first loss of the season to the Falcons — as it happens, the same team that handed the Raiders their only loss on the season — the Raiders jumped to 4-1, in a tie with the Broncos for the division lead. Now with two days until the Raiders play their week six game, they can spend those days as the division leader.

The Denver Broncos took on the San Diego Chargers on Thursday Night Football and lost 21-13 in a very bad game offensively.

Predicting Chiefs vs. Raiders: Will bandwagon gain more steam? | Mercury News

The Raiders have serious issues dealing with speedy receivers in the outside, but the Chiefs really only have one in Jeremy Maclin. Last year's team would have beaten the Chiefs in Oakland had it not been for three Derek Carr interceptions. And last year's Chiefs were better than this year's Chiefs, and this year's Raiders are better than last year's Raiders.  Reason to worry? Chiefs were blown out by the Steelers preceding their bye, and Andy Reid is 15-2 following byes.

Chiefs not ruling out an early contribution for Sio Moore | The KC Star

It remains to be seen how Moore will be used for sure in Kansas City. A fourth-year pro, Moore played inside linebacker for the Colts, but he does have a history as an edge rusher, which is where the Chiefs seem intent on trying him out. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Moore, who had 7  1/2 sacks with the Raiders in 2013-14, even got some first-team reps there earlier in the week.

Raiders-Chiefs injury report: Latavius Murray still not practicing, Tamba Hali returns | Silver And Black Pride

For the Raiders, the injury report remained unchanged from Wednesday. Still not practicing was Latavius Murray along with a pair of right tackles in Menelik Watson and Vadal Alexander. Though Austin Howard and Matt McCants were practicing so the right tackle position *should* be ok.

The NFL’s Most Run-Heavy And Pass-Happy Teams | FiveThirtyEight

The Jacksonville Jaguars (Adjusted Pass Ratio of 70.9 percent), Kansas City Chiefs (70.9 percent) and Indianapolis Colts (70.3 percent) rank as the most pass-happy teams in the NFL by this metric. But those three teams have trailed, often significantly, for large stretches of their games.1 And, of course, trailing teams tend to throw more, while leading teams rely on the ground game to run out the clock.

Jamaal Charles' past vs. Raiders could determine how Chiefs use him | ESPN

Still, Charles hasn't been much of a running threat against Oakland. He has one 100-yard game. That came in 2009, when he gained 103 yards on 18 carries in a 16-10 win in Oakland.

Quick Hits: Head Coach Del Rio Discusses Facing The Kansas City Chiefs |

"To me, I look at him and say, ‘Really good football player.’ Grew up here locally. We liked him coming out of the draft. He’s done a great job. He’s one of many good players on their defense and on their football team. Certainly you need to know what you’re doing when you’re going his way."
