Raiders don't expect Chiefs to change without Peters

Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid has announced cornerback Marcus Peters has been suspended for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders.

Why did the Chiefs suspend Peters?

"It's something I've done in the past", Reid said. "I'm not going to get into the details. It just depends how they roll coverages and do those kind of things". His only public comment since Sunday's game came on Twitter Tuesday morning: "Lol".

Del Rio remains wary of the Chiefs defense even without Peters. Michael Crabtree will be back for the Raiders after serving a one-game suspension for his role in the Aqib Talib fight versus the Denver Broncos. The university dismissed Peters from the team later in the season due to disciplinary issues. If the Chiefs put Peters out there on the trade market, they very well could get a second round pick for him.

According to a report from the Washington Post, Peters threw a referee's flag into the crowd after a holding penalty was called on a teammate.

Carr has had success against the Chiefs - most notably his first National Football League win in 2014 and a 31-30 win on October 19 when he threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree with no time remaining. He later returned to the sideline, but did not re-enter the game.

Next to Peters, Mitchell has taken the most snaps at cornerback this season. He received only a single delay of game penalty for those transgressions. "That's where I'm at".

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith agrees.

"Nobody likes to lose and when you have a lost a few in a row sometimes amusing things happen", Smith said.

"Stakes are too big right for what we have in front of us, the opportunity we have in front of us".

As far as a first rounder is concerned, Peters probably wouldn't be worth that to teams.

"You always miss a guy, but you work as a group", Acker said. "I obviously bank on those guys. That's the positive. That's how I feel, and you bank on that". The Chiefs' former offensive coordinator, now the head coach in Philadelphia, was known to have handled some play-calling duties, but neither Reid nor his up-and-coming protege ever let slip precisely how those responsibilities were divvied up. We have a good locker room; we have a mature locker room. "Guys will handle it".

One player that has really come on of late for the Raiders have been defensive end Denico Autry.

Reid said he discussed the suspension with the team's leadership after he made the decision.

Smith said he believe the team's leadership stands prepared to move on this week without Peters. In the midst of a three-way tie atop the AFC West, every game from here on out counts. "I think they understand it". It is a hard situation, a hard decision, and coach made it and we are going.
