AFC Notes: Broncos, Chiefs, Raiders


  • NBC Sports’ Peter King writes that he’s heard former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is not currently interested in purchasing the Broncos should they be put up for sale. 
  • King adds there are four individuals in the billionaire class who have started doing background work on a potential purchase. 


Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes said he has to play better for the team to turn it around. He pushed his interception total to nine on the year in Sunday’s loss to the Titans and also lost a fumble trying to dig the team out of an early hole. 

“It’s kind of been one thing here and there each and every week,” Mahomes said, Teresa M. Walker of the Associated Press. “It’s not like a whole overarching one thing, and today it was probably me. I just pressed a little bit too early in the game and then we got down we were in the mode where (we had to go) no huddle, which you don’t want to be in in the NFL.”


  • Raiders interim HC Rich Bisaccia praised QB Derek Carr‘s work ethic and preparation following the team’s win over the Eagles. “His preparation is second to none, and he plays like he prepares.” (Paul Gutierrez)
  • Carr supports Bisaccia as the potential long-term head coach for the team. “He has the ear of the locker room. He has the pulse, he has the heart beat and he’s our leader…We would love for him to still be our head coach for the future.” (NFL On Fox)
  • Raiders RB Josh Jacobs was ruled out with a chest injury, but the team feels he avoided a major injury. With Las Vegas going into their bye week, he’ll have extra time to recover. (Tom Pelissero)
  • On Monday, Bisaccia said Jacobs was diagnosed with a chest contusion and should be okay. He added TE Darren Waller is day-to-day with his ankle injury that he picked up late in the week and kept him out Sunday. (Tashan Reed)
