Kansas City Chiefs
Michael Vick owes a lot to Andy Reid for giving him a second chance in the NFL. The veteran quarterback isn’t thrilled that his first start with the New York Jets comes against his former coach.
On Saturday, the Jets said cornerback Darrin Walls won’t travel with the team to Kansas City. Phillip Adams could start in his place.
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.
The flicks of the wrist that rocket footballs downfield 50-plus yards with ease. The pretty spirals. The video game-like elusiveness. That’s Michael Vick at his best.
Geno Smith could go from being benched to being inactive for the Jets. The demoted QB has a shoulder injury that makes his availability uncertain for Sunday’s game at Kansas City.
The answer to that question is of course yes, but New York fans are probably wondering just how much more suffering is awaiting them.
Smith admitted he was frustrated to learn he was no longer the Jets’ starting quarterback. But he wasn’t surprised. He also didn’t have much of a reaction: “I just went on with my day.”
Michael Signora, the league’s vice president of football communications, tweeted Tuesday that Abdullah “should not have been penalized.”
Asked about the quarterback situation in New England, coach Bill Belichick replied with a disgusted look. This has been one rough start for Tom Brady and the Patriots.
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.
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.
As devastating as that may have been for Andy Reid’s group, Kansas City’s collapse looked like kid stuff when compared to the Giants’. In terms of speed of descent and area of splatter, few live up to that mess at Candlestick Park.
The shocking turnaround, from a 38-10 second-half deficit to 45-44 victory over the Chiefs, left Indianapolis spent both physically and mentally, linebacker Jerrell Freeman said.
Andrew Luck threw four second-half touchdown passes and scored on a fumble recovery, leading the Indianapolis Colts from a four-TD deficit to an historic 45-44 comeback victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in a wild-card game Saturday.
