Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his career best performance in Sunday’s 27-13 victory against the Rams at St. Louis. Johnson had a career high with 17 tackles including 12 solo stops as the Chiefs had their best defensive game, numberswise, giving up just 224 yards of total offense and holding Rams RB Steven Jackson to 67 rushing yards.
Other Chiefs notes: The team has until noon today to sell the required number of non-premium seats in order for Sunday’s game against Tennessee to be televised locally. The team is confident the game will not be blacked out.
Quarterback Matt Cassel said he feels fine and feel no after-effects from playing in a game just 11 days after undergoing an appendectomy.
Randy Moss comes to K.C. with his third team this season, starting in New England and then Minnesota before Tennessee picked him off waivers when starter Kenny Britt was hurt. At the time, I thought the Chiefs would have been a good candidate to take a shot at Moss, but his numbers just haven’t been there. In six games with the Titans, Moss has caught five passes for 62 yards but just one pass in the last two games.
