Derrick Johnson has been ruled out with a left achilles injury. He knew it right away. Johnson blew out his right achilles two years ago.

Ed Werder @Edwerderespn

Our Tedy Bruschi thought so much of Derrick Johnson that he spotlighted him on shows this week. Told me they never met but admired his game

Ed Werder @Edwerderespn

Derrick Johnson is a uniquely talented player who told me this week how honored he has been to play in the KC-Oakland rivalry for 12 years

This would be a big loss for the Chiefs of linebacker Derrick Johnson doesn't return. He's one of their top defenders against the run and the pass.

Bob Holtzman ESPN 

I hate to say it but the way Chiefs players are reacting it certainly makes Derrick Johnson's injury seem like something long term.

Chiefs jump to a 21-3 lead over the Raiders on the Tyreek Hill punt return. Ridiculous speed. But I also like Hill's ability to set up the first defender after the catch. That allowed him to make one cut and get up the field.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Since Week 7 and including tonight's game, Tyreek Hill's 87 total fantasy points and 10.9 fantasy points per game are third- and 12th-best among wide receivers.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Chiefs fans were chanting Tyreek Hill's name as he dropped back to return that punt and he didn't disappoint them. He returned the kick 78 yards for a touchdown and the rout is on. Chiefs are up 21-3 in the second quarter.

Matt Bowen @MattBowen41

Tyreek Hill has ridiculous speed...but that's also a smooth return. Set up the first defender, make one cut & get up the field.

Bob Holtzman ESPN 

Just before Tyreek Hill returned that punt for a touchdown, the crowd at Arrowhead was chanting his name. This place is energized by his energy. He now has two touchdowns tonight.

NFL on ESPN @ESPNNFL

Tyreek Hill!!! ✌️✌️ 78-yard punt return to the house! KC now leads 21-3.

Kevin Seifert NFL Nation 

A hopeful note for Raiders fans from ESPN Stats & Information: Oakland is 3-2 this season in games during which it has trailed by 10 or more points. The Cowboys (2-0) are the only other team with a winning record in that situation. The Raiders, of course, would have to show some life tonight on offense before they can begin thinking about improving on that mark.
