Blood trickles down his left shin as Jamaal Charles explains to a reporter why he’s wearing only a towel.
“Got these cuts” he says rubbing his arm and shoulder. “Can’t put clothes on just yet.”
Charles is headed to the trainer’s room soon. Bandages will keep him clean and protect his clothes. He just got out of the cold tub. Hopefully the swelling will stay down this way. Too early to know for sure.
Here’s what the Chiefs’ most irreplaceable player does know though: No new blisters on his toes which means the bottom of his feet aren’t more gruesome than before the Chiefs’ 24-7 win over the Raiders. By now that qualifies as good news.
“You don’t want to look at my toes right now” Charles says with a smile.
Charles’ pain is the collateral damage of a still-undefeated team without enough offense. This team is built around a vicious defense and with quarterback Alex Smith playing a second bad game in a row the Chiefs have no choice but to find out how much Charles can take.

So this is what the NFL has come to…76,394 people screaming like they never have all so they can set a new record for the loudest crowd roar in an outdoor stadium.
Isn’t this just a little pathetic?
The Kansas City Chiefs fans cheered so loud it was the “loudest recorded crowd at a sporting event.” - Way to go, you have something to tell your grandchildren.
Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson was surprised at the amount of sacks the unit had Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. The defense sacked QB Terrelle Pryor 10 times and pressured him endlessly. What is becoming the trademark calling card, the swarming front seven caused havoc in making the statement they are here to stay.
The Kansas City Chiefs have been one of the surprise stories in 2013, but they face another hurdle Sunday against the Raiders. Oakland has won the last six meetings at Arrowhead stadium and the Chiefs want to add that to list list of bad things that they can turn around. Linebacker Tamba Hali isn't concerned about what happened in the past, instead he's focused on what lies ahead.
The Kansas City Chiefs and their fans are experiencing something that they are not accustomed to--success. After a gritty 24-7 win over the Oakland Raiders the team is one of the last undefeated teams in the NFL. So yeah, I'd say the fans in Arrowhead have plenty to cheer about.
Some of them thought so too. In fact, they thought the team would give them so much to cheer...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. --Five things we learned from the Chiefs' 24-7 whipping of the Raiders.10 sacks are "stupid"If these 2013 Chiefs aren't starting to remind you of the fun Marty Schottenheimer teams from the 1990s, you're not paying attention. Indeed, this "Andyball" is an awful lot like Martyball -- a great defense that creates sacks and turnovers...
Step aside Seattle, Kansas City just overtook your record as the loudest stadium in the NFL and now the World by hitting 137.7 decibels at Arrowhead Stadium while defeating the rivaled Oakland Raiders 24-7. The previous record set by Seattle fans at CenturyLink Field was 136.6.
#Chiefs are the loudest fans in the world. 137.7 decibels. No roof. No overhang. 6-0.

The Kansas City Chiefs now play in the worlds loudest open air stadium. “In the fourth quarter, as the Chiefs fans were celebrating their victory, all of the sudden it peaked at 137.5 decibels,” Philip Robertson, the Guinness World Record adjudicator noted. “They screamed for an incredibly long time, probably longer than what I heard in Seattle.-KCChiefs.com The noise certainly...
It's time to adjust our expectations for this season.I've been holding back a little. I've been hurt before. Every time I've allowed myself to believe we could be more than a playoff team (OK, that hasn't really happened in a decade, but still), I found my hopes smashed into a thousand pieces by the Bills, The Kicker Who Shall Not Be Named, or Peyton Manning ...
The Kansas City Chiefs improved to 6-0 on the season and have a new record to call their own. According to the Guinness Book of World Records Arrowhead Stadium has set the world record for loudest outdoor sporting event during Sunday's win over the Oakland Raiders.
The previous record lasted less than a month. The Seattle Seahawks set the record during a Sept. 16 win over the...
Starting a season 6-0 in the NFL is an impressive feat that usually results in media hype leading into every game. “Will Team X stay unbeaten as they travel to City Y to play Team Y?” With just two perfect teams left in the NFL, one would believe both those teams would garner a large segment on ESPN leading up to each game.
If that’s what you’d believe would happen, you’d...
Hey kids, can you believe CBS just locked us up for two more years? Until 2015. Hard to believe it, eh Paul. 2015. I might be dead by then, who knows. Hee-heee! I’ve got in my right hand here tonight’s Top Ten List…*Thunderous applause from audience.*2015, Paul. The Top Ten List will be 30 years-old in 2015. How about that. Whole lot of lists. They’re busy at the home office...

The Seattle Seahawks’ 12th man had the glory of being the loudest fans on Earth, but it didn’t last long.
On September 15th the Hawks Nest hosted the 49ers with the Guinness Book of World Records present, with intentions of setting the world record for the loudest crowd. They ended up setting the world record at 131.6 decibels, only to break it themselves in the third quarter...
In my last article that came out on Saturday, "Oakland Raiders Poised to upset Kansas City Chiefs," I predicted how and why the Raiders would get the win in Kansas City on Sunday. The game went right along with the prediction until the bottom fell out in the second half, especially in the fourth quarter. You can't put this on the defense because they held up...
(via Getty Image)The Sean Taylor Memorial Meast for Week 6 is Tamba Hali, who had three and a half of the Chiefs’ 10 sacks of Terrelle Pryor as Kansas City continued its undefeated run with a 24-7 drubbing of the Raiders. An honorary mention goes to Chiefs fans for breaking the world record for crowd noise set in CenturyLink Field in Seattle last month. Nice to know the next time...
