Kansas City Chiefs
“Pryor is always a threat. He’s making some big throws, and I think that gives them a chance,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.
The Oakland Raiders have a tough match this Sunday against their undefeated AFC West rivals, the Kansas City Chiefs, at the Arrowhead Stadium.
Alex Smith is on pace to throw for 3,828 yards and 28 touchdowns; both would be career highs. And in what must feel especially gratifying, he’s thrown for more yards and TDs with fewer interceptions than Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback who took his job in SF.
Drew Brees passed for 413 yards and four touchdowns as the Saints beat the previously unbeaten Miami Dolphins 38-17 in New Orleans Monday night.
Alex Smith has flourished since getting traded from San Francisco, joining Joe Montana and Mike Livingston as the only Chiefs quarterbacks to win their first four starts. Smith threw his first two picks of the season against New York, but also threw three touchdown passes.
Coming off an embarrassing loss to the Seattle Seahawks Sunday night, the San Francisco 49ers face the Indianapolis Colts at Candlestick Sunday afternoon. “You don’t have a lot of time to pout,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.
The San Francisco 49ers play the Indianapolis Colts at Candlestick Sunday in a game featuring a former Stanford coach, Jim Harbaugh, and his star college quarterback, Andrew Luck. “Andrew Luck and that Colt offense, they can play,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.
In a stunning early-season move, the Cleveland Browns traded running back Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts, a year after picking him in the first round.
A.J. Jenkins no longer is in a San Francisco 49ers uniform after being dealt to Kansas City. But coach Jim Harbaugh is still coming to the defense of his former receiver.
The 49ers and Chiefs have traded their former top draft pick wide receivers. AJ Jenkins is headed from Kansas City to San Francisco in exchange for Jon Baldwin. Viewed as underachievers, John Madden said the change of scenery might provide a boost for both of them.
