1. Chiefs' Jamaal Charles will play Sunday against Oakland

By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star

"The Chiefs will have their league's leader in touchdowns at their disposal for their showdown against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday at Arrowhead (noon on CBS).

Running back Jamaal Charles, who has scored 14 times this season, was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as probable on the Chiefs' final injury report of the week, which means he is very likely to play even though he is dealing with knee and ankle injuries."    READ MORE…

2. Chiefs' failure to develop quarterbacks and wide receivers explains current drought

By Randy Covitz - The Kansas City Star

"The Chiefs are on the verge of matching an ignominious NFL record that has stood for 64 years.

Not since the stone-age era of the NFL has a team played an entire season without completing a touchdown pass to a wide receiver. The 1950 Pittsburgh Steelers hold that distinction, but that was before offenses spread their receivers across the field. That team attempted just 255 passes in a 6-6 season."    READ MORE…

3. Top NFL GM candidates

By Adam Caplan -

"Last season's NFL champion was coached by a man who once was fired by the Jets and later was canned by the Patriots. In the Super Bowl, he beat a coach who was fired by the Panthers. And that coach, to get to the big game, beat another coach who long ago was whacked by the Browns.

The point here? Forever, NFL wisdom has held that coaches can benefit long-term from getting the ax."    READ MORE…

4. Prediction: Chiefs will defeat Raiders

By Bill Williamson -

"I am reluctant to pick against the Oakland Raiders this week.

Yes, they are 2-11. But the truth is, Oakland is playing better of late. It has won two of the past three games and is coming off a dominant 24-13 win over Bay Area rival San Francisco."    READ MORE…

5. Rookie QB analysis: Raiders' Derek Carr

By Bill Williamson -

"Record as starter: 2-11

The good news: Derek Carr, a second-round pick from Fresno State, is getting great experience. He is the only rookie quarterback to start every game this season. Yes, it has been rocky, but Carr is persevering. The Raiders think he will become a franchise quarterback. He is gritty, tough, has arm strength and and moves well. Through 14 games, he has completed 60.5 percent of his passes from 2,676 yards with 17 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. The NFL game is not too big for David Carr's little brother. He is a strong leader and his confidence has not wavered despite losing. His coaches and teammates love him. He is accountable and inspirational."    READ MORE…
