Marcus Peters' suspension has made Raiders fans really happy

Kansas City Chiefs suspend Marcus Peters for game against Raiders

The Kansas City Chiefs will be without cornerback Marcus Peters when they host the Oakland Raiders on Sunday afternoon.

Although it did not lead to a suspension from the NFL, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid announced on Wednesday that the Chiefs have handed Peters a one-game ban, according to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.

Peters received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty following a defensive holding call against teammate Steven Nelson during an unsuccessful two-point conversion try by the Jets. He picked up the referee's thrown flag, tossed it into the crowd, then walked off the field assuming he had been ejected.

Peters returned to the sideline, but when he came back he was not wearing socks underneath his cleats. However on Sunday, the old Smith was back, taking chances down the field and rewarding the team with 31 total points on the board and 4 touchdown passes to his credit.

"I can't speak for everybody in here, but certainly I know a lot of the leaders on this team I think are ready to go", Smith said. Moving forward, Reid says he's not sure what the arrangement will be.

Security measures were introduced in the 1970s but were increased in the 1980s as the threat from Irish republican groups grew. London Mayor Sadiq Khan, however, said major funding cuts to London police imposed by the central government must be addressed.

Reid slept on it and made his decision known on Wednesday that Peters would miss the Raiders game.

Raiders Week is always a big deal for the Chiefs, but this Sunday's game carries a bit more importance than usual.

The Chiefs started the season 5-0 but have lost four straight and six of the past seven.

Reid's punishment sends a strong statement to the team, which at 6-6 is in a three-way tie with the Raiders and Chargers for first in the AFC West.
