Chiefs place AJ Jenkins on IR after signing Jason Avant

The Kansas City Chiefs have placed WR AJ Jenkins on injured reserve and signed WR Jason Avant, the Chiefs confirmed on Friday afternoon. It was reported earlier today that Avant, the former Eagles WR under Andy Reid, had been signed. Jenkins going to IR is the roster spot that will go to Avant. Jenkins suffered a shoulder injury just over a week ago and has not practiced or played since. His injury must be longer than day to day because this will end his season. Jenkins was the No. 2 receiver when Donnie Avery was out. Besides the occasional 20-plus yard play here and there, Jenkins didn't...

Jason Avant will sign with Kansas City Chiefs, per report

Andy Reid is signing a familiar face in WR Jason Avant. The Kansas City Chiefs are signing free agent wide receiver Jason Avant, according to a report from Aaron Wilson. The report states that Avant worked out for the Chiefs on Friday and will sign with the team. This comes a week after the Chiefs reportedly worked out free agent WR Santonio Holmes. We're still awaiting word from the Chiefs to make this official but the Chiefs trainer says it's happening and Avant's agent says this on Twitter: Congrats to Jason avant. Said he deserved a better place and he found one. — Doug Hendrickson...

Jason Avant signed by Kansas City Chiefs

Andy Reid just couldn't resist. According to multiple reports, former Philadelphia Eagles and Carolina Panthers wide receiver Jason Avant has been signed the Kansas City Chiefs. Avant was released earlier this week by Carolina after reportedly questioning the play-calling in the Panthers' Week 11 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. It's hardly a surprise to learn that Avant has landed in Kansas City. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is very fond of his former Eagles players. Reid drafted Avant in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft at pick No. 109 overall. Avant becomes the fourth former Eagles...

The Morning After: Oakland Raiders vs Kansas City Chiefs (1st WIN!)

RELIEF. Relief unlike anything I ever remember feeling after an Oakland Raiders win. The release of the worry and pent up emotions was nearly euphoric and something completely unique to me. The only game I can remember anything similar was the Raiders finally getting to the Super Bowl in 2002 after years of being so close, but even that was completely different than this. When thinking about the relief and emotional release that us fans felt after this win against the Kansas City Chiefs it really puts into perspective what the Raiders players and members of the organization felt afterward....

How many more wins do the Kansas City Chiefs need?

Here’s a #GMCPlaybook hypothetical for @SBNation: Your team wins the rest of its games. What would your headline say? http://t.co/t9LYK2NIkt — Marshall Faulk (@marshallfaulk) November 19, 2014 This is a tough question after that loss but it's also a good question because the Chiefs may have to win the rest of their games to win the division (not so with the Wild Card). So let's say the Chiefs win out the rest of their games (Broncos, at Cardinals, Raiders, at Steelers, Chargers). They would finish the season 12-4 after going on their second five-game winning streak this season. Let's...

Kansas City Chiefs start mini-bye week before Denver Broncos game

After the loss to the Raiders, they get some extra time to prepare for the Broncos in Week 13. The good thing to come out of the Chiefs loss to the Raiders? OK, there is no good thing. It was a bad loss, at least one of the two worst regular season losses in the Andy Reid era. If you're dying to find something positive it's that the Chiefs now have a few extra days to prepare for their Week 13 Sunday Night Football matchup against the Denver Broncos, who play the Miami Dolphins this Sunday. "There are some things you can learn from this and make you a better team," Reid said in a Monday...

Kansas City Chiefs have no excuses for loss to Oakland Raiders

Kansas City had every chance to win a game that it ultimately gift wrapped for the worthless Raiders. The Kansas City Chiefs have no excuses. Don't tell me about the rain, or Husain Abdullah dropping an easy interception, or perhaps the worst pass interference call in NFL history against Ron Parker. This game was lost well before the latter two, and the rain was there for both teams. The Chiefs failed on every level on Thursday night in their 24-20 loss to the previously winless Oakland Raiders. It was an embarrassment that will be remembered for years to come. Kansas City played with the...

Chiefs offense deserves blame for Raiders loss with miserable third down percentage

One reason the Chiefs lost: they were really bad on third down. I wrote earlier that the defense cost the Kansas City Chiefs in Thursday's loss to the Oakland Raiders. And that's correct. The Chiefs defense could not hold a lead in the fourth quarter. They allowed the Raiders to convert 50 percent of their third downs. But let's not let the offense off the hook here. They contributed to this loss, too. Alex Smith and the Chiefs offense deserves some credit for coming back with two second half touchdowns. They did the same thing in Buffalo and scored one against Seattle, too. That's a good...

Chiefs' Travis Kelce, De'Anthony Thomas see career high playing time

Updating the Chiefs snap counts from the loss to the Raiders. Travis Kelce was a full time tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs for the second consecutive week. Unfortunately Kelce's stats (four receptions, 67 yards) didn't lead to a victory as the Chiefs lost to the Oakland Raiders, 24-20. TE Anthony Fasano missed last week's game and played just two offensive snaps in this game, which is why Kelce was asked to play a larger role. The Chiefs third tight end, Phillip Supernaw, played just four snaps so Kansas City used one tight end for most of the game. These 62 snaps mark a career high...

Chiefs dirty secret is they can't stop the run, but it may not matter

The Chiefs defense is actually very bad against the run. Here's why it may not matter. It feels unusual to say it was the Kansas City Chiefs defense that let them down in Thursday's loss to the Oakland Raiders. That's because the Chiefs defense has often been what's keeping them in games. In fact, two weeks ago, the Chiefs defense held on fourth down to beat the Bills. Last week they did the same on fourth and short against the Seahawks to preserve the win. The Chiefs defense didn't make that fourth down stop against the Raiders. This Chiefs loss feels a lot like the Bills game ... except...

Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 11/21

I stayed up for that? What a craptastic loss. Full disclosure: I'm gonna phone this in. It was a short night's rest and I had to travel to my desk this morning. Classic trap Arrowheadlines. Stick around through the whole thing though, I might wake up by the time I get to the second half of the post and make it interesting. Here's your Kansas City Chiefs news. Chiefs Fall to the Raiders 20-24 from The Associated Press via The Mothership Alex Smith threw two TD passes for the Chiefs (7-4), who had won five in a row. They fell a half-game behind Denver in the AFC West. The Raiders became just...

Chiefs in the NFL playoff picture after loss to Raiders

Updating the Chiefs spot in the NFL playoff picture and AFC West race. The biggest takeaway from the Kansas City Chiefs 24-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders is that it hurts their chances of a home playoff game. The Chiefs would need to win the AFC West over the Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers to achieve that but this loss hurts. The Chiefs are still in decent position to make the playoffs. Heading into Week 12, Five Thirty Eight had their playoff chances at 83 percent. Their formula had the Chiefs playoff chances falling to 68 percent with a loss. That's still a solid...

Which Chiefs loss is worse: Raiders or Titans?

Is this Chiefs loss worse than the Week 1 loss to the Titans? The Kansas City Chiefs lost to the previously winless Oakland Raiders and this is miserable. So let's be miserable together. The Chiefs 24-20 loss to the Raider looks like the worst loss of the season, at least on paper. The Raiders were 0-10 entering the game and the Chiefs had legitimate expectations ahead. There's no doubt this was a bad loss. But I will contend that the Chiefs Week 1 loss to the Titans was worse, and more of an anomaly than this loss to the Raiders. The Raiders were winless but go look at their...

Raiders beat Chiefs, game ends in fairly absurd fashion

The San Francisco 49ers host the Oakland Raiders in a couple weeks, and I would say thankfully, the Raiders will not be in search of their first win. The Raiders stunned the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football, winning 24-20. Derek Carr led a great 7:17 drive to put the Raiders on top, and somehow Oakland survived a calamity of errors. There were two notable moments in the Chiefs final drive, both of which left me laughing. The first was a 4th and 3 at the KC 46. Alex Smith could not find an open receiver, but three separate penalties were called on the Raiders. They were called...

Oakland Raiders vs Kansas City Chiefs 2nd half open thread

The Kansas City Chiefs started out with the ball at the 20 in this one. The Raiders stopped them right off the bat with a 3 and out. The 3rd down stop was a beautiful open field tackle on Jamaal Charles by Charles Woodson. Unfortunately the Raiders only managed one first down before having to punt the ball back to Kansas City. Once again the defense was up to the challenge though and held the Chiefs to another three and out, 2 in a row to start the game. This time the Raiders would not be denied. Derek Carr moved the ball consistently down the field with excellent awareness and pocket...

Thursday Night Football Open Thread: Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland Raiders

Join us for witty banter as the Kansas City Chiefs (7-3) visit the Oakland Raiders (0-10) in a prime time AFC West matchup. At least it's a division game?  I can't muster much of a sell for this one as the pathetic, putrid, hapless (and winless) Oakland Raiders (0-10) host the Kansas City Chiefs (7-3).  The Chiefs, as a team, have exactly zero touchdown passes to wide receivers in 2014.  The Raiders are DFL in the NFL in points scored, with a paltry 152. Do I have you convinced yet?  I thought not.  If nothing else, you can hope for the Raiders to take down a potential Wild Card team...
