Marcus Peters Suspended for One Game by Kansas City Chiefs

Week 14 Oakland Raiders Keys To Victory

Week 14 Oakland Raiders Keys To Victory

"I told you before that I always look in the mirror first", said Reid to reporters. "I'm not going to get into the details".

Reid has also docked Peters from team practices this week ahead of this weekend's home game against the Raiders.

The Chiefs have lost six of their last seven games after getting off to a 5-0 start, so Peters is nearly certainly not the only player who is frustrated.

Against the Washington Redskins, Peters was caught in an incident where a fan allegedly yelled racial slurs at him, resulting in Peters flipping off fans and yelling expletives back. He later returned, but obviously, his behavior irked the Chiefs. Albeit, this is a pattern he has oft followed. Peters then came back onto the field not wearing any socks.

When the Raiders and Chiefs played on October 19 in Oakland, Peters drew the ire of Raiders offensive lineman for his hit on quarterback Derek Carr, a play in which he was called for unnecessary roughness. In the ensuing controversy, Lynch shoved an official and was ejected.

Peters was called for unsportsmanlike conduct with 2:15 left in the game after he tossed the flag that was thrown for defensive holding during the Jets' failed two-point converstion attempt.

Reid revealed the result of that evaluation on Wednesday.

Reid said he discussed the suspension with the team's leadership after he made the decision. They find themselves in a thick AFC West race now with the Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers and have to beat the Raiders to avoid falling below.500 and slipping out of first place in the division.
