Marcus Peters Suspended for One Game by Kansas City Chiefs

Then Peters - who was given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty but not ejected - left the field and went into the locker room before the end of the game.

Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson was called for defensive holding while the Jets were attempting a two-point conversion after scoring a touchdown. Peters walked off the field, thinking he'd been ejected from the game, but returned shortly afterward. In addition, Peters was named a first-team All-Pro. The ensuing skirmish featured a odd turn of events when Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch ran in from the sidelines to "defend Peters".

Reid said he discussed the suspension with the team's leadership after he made the decision. Against the Jets, Peters let his frustration boil over, picking up a referee's flag and launched it into the crowd. "That's why he came back out".

Ward was put on trial and took a fatal overdose the night before he was convicted of living off immoral earnings. The consequences for the Tory party were catastrophic and Macmillan's Cabinet was shaken by the revelations.

When asked by reporters whether or not the Chiefs would continue with this same arrangement, Reid was non-committal on the future, saying the team would evaluate as they go, like everything else they do. I don't know what was said to him or not said to him. The frustration from the rise to a 5-0 start, and the fall to 6-6, has resulted in several meltdowns throughout the season. The finish to that game - with penalties on back-to-back plays on the Raiders' late game-winning drive - was eerily similar to Sunday's meltdown.

The loss of Peters is huge, especially with a critical divisional matchup against the Raiders this week, as first place in the AFC West hangs in the balance.
