Raiders’ Derek Carr: Chiefs suspending CB Marcus Peters ‘doesn’t change what we do’

The Raiders will face a Chiefs defense missing top cornerback and Oakland native Marcus Peters on Sunday in Kansas City.

The Chiefs suspended Peters on Wednesday following his outburst late in a loss to the Jets last weekend. After the Chiefs were called for a penalty, Peters picked up the flag and threw it into the stands. He then left the field briefly despite not being ejected.

The Chiefs, who rank 28th in the NFL in passing yards allowed (252.8 per game), will be without Peters for Sunday’s game between 6-6 teams tied for first place in the AFC West.
