1. How the Chiefs can beat Peyton Manning by being very good, not perfect.

By Sam Mellinger - The Kansas City Star

"The first thing to know about beating Peyton Manning is that you don't have to be perfect.

By some combination of justified respect for a Hall of Fame career and the normal football tendency to overstate the opponent's strengths, most teams face Manning with the internal pressure of thinking they have to be perfect to beat him. It has almost become part of the preparation."    READ MORE…

2. Five Things: Chiefs-Raiders Thursday Night Roundup

By Andrew Kahn - CBS Sports

"The Oakland Raiders upset the Kansas City Chiefs last night 24-20 for their first win of the season. With the loss, the Chiefs (7-4) are no longer tied atop the AFC West with the Broncos. On a rainy night that made it difficult for both passing attacks, it was a stunning result.

Just one, baby

The Raiders (1-10) had gone more than a year and the equivalent of an entire season without a win. The streak is over. Veteran Charles Woodson, who was mic'd up and hyped up throughout the game, said afterwards, "I needed this win like I need to breathe. This whole organization needed this win tonight." The relief for the players and rowdy Oakland fans was evident, especially since a 17-3 lead late in the third quarter had turned into a 20-17 deficit late in the fourth."    READ MORE…

3. Chiefs fall to final wild-card spot

By Adam Teicher -

"I'll do my full, normal, weekly look at the Kansas City Chiefs' standing in the AFC playoff picture next week, after the weekend games are concluded.

Just know for now that after Thursday night's 24-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders, the Chiefs now hold the final wild-card spot in the AFC. The Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers, both 7-4, would be the AFC's wild-card teams. The Steelers hold the tiebreaker over the Chiefs because of a better record in conference games (6-3 for Pittsburgh, 5-3 for Kansas City). So Pittsburgh would be the AFC's fifth seed, Kansas City the sixth seed."    READ MORE…
