Travis Kelce caught 5-of-8 targets for 101 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders.

The 100-yard effort was Kelce's fourth straight, and fifth in seven games. Like he's done for the entirety of his hot streak, Kelce was gashing the defense for huge gains up the seam. Kelce could have had an even bigger game had Alex Smith not gone into witness protection after halftime. Most encouragingly, the big night came with Jeremy Maclin back in the lineup. Kelce will be a top-three tight end for next week's home matchup with the Titans.

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

This is a game the second-year wideout would like to have back. Cooper caught two extremely lucky breaks in the first half. A should-have-been fumble was ruled an incomplete pass, and Cooper's offensive pass interference in the end zone was called defensive pass interference. His luck ran out after the break, as he committed one of the most baffling non-catches in recent memory. With Derek Carr scrambling out of the pocket to deliver a nearly-perfect deep strike, Cooper somehow lost the ball in flight. It was an inexcusable play, one that cost the Raiders a 72-yard touchdown. Cooper keeps inventing new ways not to score. He's now been held below 60 yards in five straight games, and below 30 in 2-of-3. The Chargers aren't a stay-away matchup for Week 15, but Cooper is a volatile fantasy option right now.

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.

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.
