Head coach Andy Reid won’t let his team let up against the Raiders and blow an opportunity for a victory, and quarterback Alex Smith is too smart to take any opponent lightly.
There’s a team that’s being virtually ignored in the AFC, and tit may be able to keep the Patriots from getting back to the top of the football world.
So as the New York Jets (1-7) travel to Kansas City (4-3) on Sunday afternoon, they have one thing in mind. They have to stop Charles.
Jamaal Charles proved he is back to full speed for the Kansas City Chiefs. Tom Brady is still stuck in neutral for the New England Patriots.
Quarterbacks are breaking records left and right in the pass-happy NFL, but that makes high-caliber running backs all the more valuable. Many of last season’s top performers appear on this list, but keep in mind there’s usually a major bust or two, likely due to the heavy workload of the position causing a hangover effect.
Running back Jamaal Charles has become a veritable workhorse for the Kansas City Chiefs, and it is not surprising since he’s one of the best backs in the entire NFL. With a new contract extension in place, the Chiefs hope for another great season out of Charles, and they’re likely going to get one.
The Chiefs lost running back Jamaal Charles with a possible concussion on the opening possession of its wild-card game at Indianapolis.
Injuries slowed down the Kansas City Chiefs in the second half of the NFL season, but now they are much healthier as the playoffs approach.
Just two weeks ago, the Kansas City Chiefs lost at home to the Indianapolis Colts in a game that sealed the AFC West team’s postseason fate. Can they flip that outcome on the road in the playoffs?
Adrian Peterson, LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles and Matt Forte have all tested the Giants’ front seven and come up with no more than 67 yards. Peterson had it the toughest, being limited to 28.
Kansas City Chiefs fans broke the world decibel record during Sunday’s win over the Oakland Raiders, reaching a mark of 137.5.
The New York Giants came into Sunday’s away contest against the Kansas City Chief winless at 0-3 and just off the worst loss in head coach Tom Coughlin’s tenure at the helm. Last week’s 38-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers continued a downward spiral that has seen poor pass protection, turnovers and lack of a running game. Meanwhile, through three games the Kansas City Chiefs led the NFL with a (+13) turnover margin. KC linebacker Justin Houston lead the NFL with 7.5 sacks, so the matchups were potentially disastrous for New York. The Giants hung around early but turnovers and special teams ineffectiveness doomed New York as the Chiefs pulled away late for a 31-7 victory.
The Giants have started the season 0-4 for the first time since 1987 after losing the Chiefs on Sunday.
Who is the best running back in the NFL? Pick a side!
The Kansas City Chiefs had the worst record in the NFL last year at 2-14, so after three weeks of the regular season, KC has already passed their win total from last year. The New York Giants were supposed to challenge for the NFC East title this year, but after Sunday’s shutout loss to the Carolina Panthers, New York has dropped to 0-3. Kansas City looks for the momentum to continue, while New York desperately looks for a “W.”
