    Quarterback Tyrod Taylor’s future in Buffalo has been a frequent topic of conversation this week.

    Derek Carr wont blame pinky finger for performance

    Derek Carr wasn’t going to blame the weather, and he wasn’t going to blame his messed-up finger. Mostly, he blamed himself, which seems like the most accurate thing about his night.

    Derrick Johnson knew his season was over the moment he hit the frozen turf of Arrowhead Stadium, the Chiefs' veteran linebacker ripping off his helmet in frustration. It became official when he went to the sideline and found he had torn his Achilles. The injury only briefly deflated Kansas City on Thursday night, though.

    Tyreek Hill didn't know what to do when he started hearing thousands of people in Arrowhead Stadium chanting his name, even as he stood all alone on the frozen turf waiting for the punt. It followed shortly after he had hauled in a 36-yard touchdown grab, spurring Kansas City to a 21-13 victory over the Oakland Raiders on a frosty Thursday night and into control of the AFC West. ''It gave me chills on the sideline,'' said Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, who had 261 yards passing with a touchdown and an interception.

        Derek Carr struggles, loses MVP momentum in Raiders' disappointing loss

        The chances were there all Thursday night for the Oakland Raiders, who lost 21-13 to the Kansas City Chiefs and slid from the No. 1 seed in the AFC to the No. 5 slot in the playoffs with only three games remaining. And with that dip, there also was a drop in Derek Carr’s MVP candidacy. Carr struggled badly — but also was a victim to a ton of dropped passes — and didn’t surpass the 100-yard passing plateau until the fourth quarter. He had trouble gripping and ripping the ball in the cold conditions at Arrowhead Stadium, where the field was frozen just hours before the game, a stiff wi…

      • newChiefs earn huge win over Raiders, despite Alex Smith's second-half meltdown

        Chiefs earn huge win over Raiders, despite Alex Smith's second-half meltdown

        There’s been a saying making its way around Kansas City these days: “That’s my quarterback.” That would be Alex Smith, and after the first half, the believers were out in full force. Smith had led — by his standards, even by Derek Carr standards — an aerial assault by throwing for 202 yards and dicing up the secondary of the first-place Oakland Raiders, with the Chiefs leading 21-10. But this was the Smith many said didn’t exist, and the second half provided those folks all the evidence they’d gathered over the majority of his 12 NFL seasons. The Chiefs would hang on for a cru…

        Watch Chiefs' Travis Kelce mock Raiders' flamboyant punter, Marquette King (Video)

        Who says the Kansas City Chiefs aren’t fun? Long disdained and written off as a boring team — the Alex Smith Factor, perhaps — the Chiefs actually have some characters! Chief among them: Travis Kelce. The star of his own dating reality show might not quite be a household name yet, but you better get to know him … soon. Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce didn’t pass up a chance to punk the Oakland Raiders’ punter, Marquette King.

        Jets place Nick Mangold on IR; has he played his last game for New York?

        As the New York Jets grind toward the end of what will be a losing season, they will do so without one of their stalwarts: the team placed veteran center Nick Mangold on injured reserve on Thursday. Mangold suffered a right ankle injury in late October that kept him out of the lineup for several weeks; he returned on Monday night against the Indianapolis Colts, but was unable to finish the game. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted early Thursday that Mangold was headed to get a second opinion from Dr. Robert Anderson in North Carolina, and Dr. Anderson’s diagnosis must have led to the decis…

        NFL MVP, ROY and awards rankings: Is Eric Berry a defensive player of the year candidate?

        If the Kansas City Chiefs end up doing some special things this season, they can point back to safety Eric Berry’s big day at the Atlanta Falcons as a big factor. Berry had a pick-six and also an interception on a two-point conversion that he returned for two points for his own team in a 29-28 win. His eight points outscored the Miami Dolphins, Carolina Panthers and San Francisco 49ers last week. No player has ever won a football game by himself, not even the quarterbacks who get credited for “wins,” but Berry gets about as much credit as one player could for what he did at Atlanta. Was…

        Falcons sign fourth-year corner Robert Alford to four-year extension

        The Atlanta Falcons have locked up one of their young defenders, announcing on Thursday they have signed fourth-year cornerback Robert Alford to a four-year extension. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the deal was worth a total of $38 million, with $21 million guaranteed. Atlanta and cornerback Robert Alford agreed to a four-year contract extension. (Getty Images) Alford has been the Falcons’ top corner since fellow 2013 draftee Desmond Trufant, a Pro Bowler last year, was lost for the season to a torn pec in Week 9.

        Derek Carr and the Raiders hope to win the rematch against the Chiefs. (AP) There’s a lot at stake on Thursday night as the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs play. It’s also a game between two teams that are very creative in their schemes and play-calling. Before the AFC West rivals kick off, I thought it would be good to look at some of the strategic wrinkles we might see, that everyone can keep an eye out for during the game: CHIEFS OFFENSE VS. RAIDERS DEFENSE This goes against common perception, but the Chiefs are as difficult an offense to prepare for as any in the NFL. Few people…

        Chicken-or-the-egg question to mull: Have the (formerly St. Louis) Los Angeles Rams always been this dramatic, or did the move to L.A. just highlight all the issues with this organization? We’re leaning toward the latter. Sure, incidents such as the Eric Dickerson vs. Jeff Fisher feud and all the hand wringing over the handling of Jared Goff have been issues that have been west coast babies. But other things clearly have been incubating for some time now, such as the relationship between Fisher and GM Les Snead.

        The Cleveland Browns and first-year head coach Hue Jackson signed Robert Griffin III this offseason, a chance for Griffin to reclaim his career under the tutelage of Jackson, who is known for his work with quarterbacks. But Griffin was injured in just the first game of the year, suffering a fractured coracoid bone in his left shoulder that landed him on injured reserve. He returned to practice on Nov. 23, just over 10 weeks after sustaining the injury. Robert Griffin III will start on Sunday vs. the Bengals.
