Arrowheadlines: Jamaal Charles could return, Chiefs need to run, Raiders second-guessing

As playoffs near, Chiefs hope to rev up ground game | The Kansas City Star

“(We were) real confident,” running back Spencer Ware said. “Toward the end of the second half, we started to move the front a little bit. That’s a credit to our offensive line for making some space for us running backs.”

The Chiefs’ final rushing tally against the league’s 27th-ranked run defense was not pretty; only 65 yards in 27 attempts, a stat line that has been loosely replicated too often this year as the Chiefs have cobbled together the league’s 26th-ranked run offense at 96.2 yards per game.

The side of Alex Smith many don’t know |

Their relationship has nothing to do with touchdowns, wins or even football for that matter—it has to do with a side of Smith that many don’t know about due in large part to the fact that he’s the last person who will ever promote anything about himself, even when he has every reason to as he does with the work he’s done with the Alex Smith Foundation—a name he laughs about when asked.

Former NFL coach and ESPN analyst Herm Edwards thought Del Rio was probably second-guessing the third-and-1 call. Peters is the Chiefs’ best cover corner. Holmes is the Raiders’ No. 4 wide receiver.

“They might have re-thought what they wanted to do, when they decided to throw a fade with two time outs,” Edwards told KNBR 680. I think they run the ball in there with Murray.”
