Locker Room Buzz: Kansas City Chiefs
By Adam Teicher
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Observed in the locker room after the Kansas City Chiefs' 26-17 win over the Tennessee Titans:
One of the last unbeatens: At the time their game concluded, the Chiefs were one of just two 5-0 teams, the New Orleans Saints being the other. The day could end that way depending on how the Broncos fare against the Cowboys. That didn’t escape their attention. “I don’t want to stop,’’ running back Jamaal Charles said. “I want to keep going. I’ve never been 5-0 in my NFL career.’’
Succop’s big day: Ryan Succop made all four of his field goal attempts, including a 48-yarder on a wet field for the game’s final points. Succop is 9-of-9 this season inside of 50 yards and 1-of-3 beyond.
Injuries: Starting wide receiver Donnie Avery, who had two catches of more than 40 yards, had difficulty raising his arm afterward. He was injured late in the first half and returned for a handful of plays in the third quarter. X-rays were negative and the Chiefs called the injury a bruised shoulder.
