1. Chiefs-Raiders scouting report
By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star
"When the Chiefs run
EDGE >> CHIEFS
Star running back Jamaal Charles is banged up but is expected to play. Even if he shares some carries with backup Knile Davis, the Chiefs should be able to generate some movement in the running game against a defensive front that will be weakened by the absence of linjured inebacker Sio Moore. Look for the Raiders to stack the box against the run, much as the Cardinals did a week ago." READ MORE…

5. Mailbag: Who's to blame for passing woes?
By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com
"Here is this week's edition of the Kansas City Chiefs' mailbag. To ask a question for a future edition, send it to me via Twitter (@adamteicher) and tag it #ChiefsMail.
@10PinHickel: @adamteicher You've been saying this all year "We need bigger plays from the WRs". So who needs to step up and make the plays? Smith or WRs
@adamteicher: You're forgetting the protection. Quarterback Alex Smith frequently is forced to get rid of the ball before he might like. Fans were all over Smith this week for his inability to throw deep passes at the end of the Arizona game when the Chiefs needed to quickly get down the field and into field goal range. But he was under pressure on all but one throw. So there's plenty of blame to go around. Smith needs to take more chances, within reason. But the receivers need to play better as well. I think Jason Avant helps. He's not fast but knows how to play the game." READ MORE…
