Marcus Peters' suspension has made Raiders fans really happy

Marcus Peters' suspension has made Raiders fans really happy

Reid said he wouldn't go into details.but the suspension stems from the incident where Marcus Peters threw the refs flag into the stadium crowd, last Sunday. Peters will not be paid his standard game check and will not be allowed to practice either. When asked about the situation, Reid stated, "This was something Marcus [Peters] and I discussed". The ensuing skirmish featured a unusual turn of events when Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch ran in from the sidelines to "defend Peters".

During an on-field skirmish with 6:12 to play in the first half and the Chiefs leading 17-14, Lynch raced from the sideline to intervene, getting between Raiders players and Peters.

Following the game, Reid said: "That's why he left the field".

After Reid announced he was mulling over punishment for Peters, the point was delivered clearly on Wednesday incidental behavior would no longer be tolerated.

But the numbers for his first fiscal year in office are in, and the president is well below his mark. A case of a Border Patrol being supposedly "ambushed" by migrants made headlines in late November.

However, the questionable behavior continued on the gridiron with Peters obvious lack of will to tackle during the game.

For all the chatter about benching Alex Smith, it's obvious that the secondary has taken a hit. Oakland also won the first meeting in October, so a Raiders victory would give them essentially a two-game lead in the division. Peters had been flagged for unsportsman-like conduct but was not ejected.

The Chiefs' first loss of the season, which started their downturn, came at the hands of the Raiders in a 31-30 thriller in Oakland back in Week 7.
