Amari Cooper caught 5-of-10 targets for 29 yards in the Raiders' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

Dec 8 - 11:56 PM

Alex Smith completed 17-of-26 passes for 264 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Chiefs' 21-13, Week 14 win over the Raiders.

Even by Smith's standards, it was a deeply bizarre performance. Smith played like 2011 Aaron Rodgers in the first half, completing 11-of-16 passes for 203 yards and his score. He was legitimately gunslinging, and taking accurate shots deep. It was like he was a completely new quarterback. The switch flipped at halftime. He was picked on an awful throw on his second attempt of the third quarter, and lost a fumble to begin Kansas City's next drive. The game was an atrocious slog from there on out. Despite the rough half, Smith has been playing legitimately better of late thanks to Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. He'll be a decent QB2 against the Titans in Week 15.
Dec 8 - 11:48 PM

Derek Carr completed 17-of-41 passes for 117 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Raiders' 21-13, Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

At least for one week, the MVP talk will be put on ice. Carr's 2.85 yards per attempt was the second lowest in NFL history for a quarterback attempting at least 40 passes. With the temperature checking in at "frigid plains," Carr was noticeably bothered by his pinkie injury. He flat missed throws all evening. This being the Raiders, however, he was also hurt by a number of awful drops/misconnections, none worse than Amari Cooper's baffling inability to haul in a would-be 72-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. It's a score that would have changed the game, and kept Carr out of the history books. With his finger an issue, the Raiders' 10-day break couldn't be coming at a better time. Carr has a get-right Week 15 matchup in the Chargers.

49ers LT Joe Staley is dealing with a hamstring injury.

Staley injured his hamstring in Wednesday's practice, and missed Thursday's session. In the midst of his age-32 season, Staley hasn't missed a game since 2010.
Dec 8 - 9:51 PM

Chiefs ILB Derrick Johnson was forced from Kansas City's Week 14 game against the Raiders with a left Achilles' injury, and will not return.

Put simply, it looked like Johnson ruptured his left Achilles'. Johnson, who tore his right Achilles' in 2014, immediately took off his helmet and tossed it in disgust, like he knew what the injury was. Per NBC's Cris Collinsworth, Johnson had been dealing with a sore left Achilles'. His loss would be crushing for the Chiefs.

Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

The Pack are just managing Rodgers' reps. His hamstring wasn't a major issue in last week's win over the Texans.
Dec 8 - 8:33 PM

The Washington defense is last in the NFL in third-down defense, allowing opposing offenses to convert at a 48 percent clip.

The Redskins have struggled defensively in two recent losses, allowing 31.0 points per game while failing to force a single turnover. "Those are the key facets of winning football games and playing winning defense," said coach Jay Gruden of third-down defense, red-zone defense and creating turnovers. The Redskins D/ST has struggled recently but is an interesting potential streaming option on the road against the Philadelphia offense that hasn't score more than 15 points in a game since Week 10.
Dec 8 - 7:33 PM

Raiders LG Kelechi Osemele (illness) is inactive for Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Osemele couldn't get healthy on a short week. It's a big blow for what's been one of the league's top offensive lines. Osemele has been worth every penny as a free agent this year. He should be back for Week 15. Inactive for the Raiders are QB Connor Cook, CB Antonio Hamilton, S Karl Joseph, DT Darius Latham, LB Shilique Calhoun and DT Stacy McGee.
