Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders‘ tour of NFL teams stopped at the Chiefs on Friday and it is set to continue over the weekend. Multiple reports indicate Sanders will travel to San Francisco for a visit with the 49ers as long as he doesn’t reach a deal with the Chiefs or another one of the teams he’s visited since the start of free agency. Sanders, No. 39 on PFT’s list of the top 100 free agents, has also paid visits to the Buccaneers and Jaguars.

Kiffin was named assistant head coach/defense on Tuesday night, while Rod Marinelli was promoted to defensive coordinator. The Cowboys switched from the 3-4 to the 4-3 scheme with the hiring of Kiffin last year but finished last in the NFL in defense, allowed the most yards in franchise history and the second-most points in franchise history.

Thurmond’s comments also seemed to serve as a warning to Welker — and the Broncos’ receivers — Seattle’s hard-hitting secondary, nicknamed "The Legion of Boom," will be ready and waiting for similar plays in the Super Bowl. "We play a lot of man coverage, so we know they’re going to have a lot of crossing routes like that," Thurmond said. "We’re preparing for that situation to occur. We know that kind of contact is going to happen because we play so much man, and we’ll be ready for it."

Luck is facing another man-based defense this week, but Indy’s route combinations won’t produce the same playmaking opportunities. The Patriots are too conservative to be out-leveraged downfield. Plus, their personnel is better than the Chiefs’. Aqib Talib, at 6-1, 205 pounds, has the length, strength and fluidity to disrupt the 5-9, 180-pound Hilton. And the Pro Bowl corner almost certainly will have help over the top, as Bill Belichick’s M.O. is to do whatever is necessary to eliminate the opponent’s top weapon. With Hilton covered and offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton finally acknowledging (tacitly) the ineffectiveness of Trent Richardson and the power running game, this contest will be decided by Indy’s ancillary receivers in spread sets. The game plan will focus on quick-timing throws, but a lot will hinge on what happens when Luck extends plays. The X-factor: tight end Coby Fleener. He’ll either be matched against a linebacker in space or shadowed by corner-turned-safety Devin McCourty. If it’s the former, Fleener needs to have a 100-yard type night. If it’s the latter, then either Griff Whalen, Da’Rick Rogers or speedster LaVon Brazill will have to win in true one-on-one scenarios.

Should that occur, 14 of the league’s 32 teams would qualify for the postseason — seven in each conference. Goodell also said during his October remarks that such a change would lead to three games per conference on wild-card weekend (currently, there are two), presumably with the No. 1 overall seeds receiving byes. From there, No. 2 would host No. 7, No. 3 would host No. 6, and No. 4 would host No. 5; the divisional round then would pare down to four teams per conference, as it does now.

When it mattered most Smith delivered two plays that he’ll think back on today and wonder what could have been. Firstly, there was the momentum-changing strip sack that owed a lot to the hustle of Robert Mathis, but even more to the carelessness of the quarterback. In the NFL you need an internal clock that tells you when you need to get rid of the ball and you need to understand that when you vacate a clean pocket you’re giving edge rushers like Mathis a far easier path to you. Smith failed in both these regards as he drifted and then scrambled to the left, holding onto the ball for a ridiculous 5.3 seconds before it was knocked loose.

With an easy 23-7 win and an efficient stat line that included a 70.3% completion rate, one touchdown and no interceptions, it’s logical to conclude that Andrew Luck had a good game against the Chiefs. But his -2.8 passing grade told a different story, as he completed just three throws more than 10 yards downfield and was lucky that Brandon Flowers dropped an interception in the red zone.

Some quarterbacks have certainly benefitted from the screen game more than others, and when we say "benefitted," it’s only in the form of raw numbers (yards), rather than our actual PFF grades. Once the ball is released from a quarterback’s hand, he has little to do with the result of the play, particularly on screen plays which are generally one-read throws with the result of the play completely in the hands of the receiver, his blockers, and the defense. So those 80-yard screens that look great on the stat sheet will generally garner the same 0-grade for the QB as a 4-yard loss on the exact same play, yet again one of the many reasons why raw stats can often mislead.

The good news for Kansas City is that nobody saw the Ravens coming at this time last year, or the Giants and Packers before them. Those eventual champions surprised everybody because few could believe that their weaknesses could be forged into strengths so quickly. What they also revealed -- as the Chiefs must prove -- is that everybody has problems by this time of the year. The only thing that ultimately separates contenders from pretenders is how you adapt to them.

The Colts continue to collect stray running backs, signing former Chiefs and Ravens running back Shaun Draughn Tuesday. They made room for him on the roster by putting inside linebacker Pat Angerer on injured reserve. He was plagued by knee problems, but was a healthy scratch last week. Draughn gives them another option in the backfield, after they signed Tashard Choice last week. Draughn was cut by the Chiefs during the preseason, and played in three games for the Ravens early this year. He worked out for the Colts last week, and gives them another option for returns.
