Andy Reid on offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, who could again be up for head coaching jobs this year: “I'd say hire him, right now. That's what I'd tell you. I don't want to lose him but I mean if you're asking me is he ready to be a head coach, yeah, he's ready. He was ready last year . . . He's in the quarterback room every day and I think if you'd talk to Patrick (Mahomes) he'd tell you how much influence he's had on him.''

Andy Reid on the addition of RB Spencer Ware and his role on Sunday against the Patriots: “One of the reasons you bring him back is just his production when he was here before. And he knows the offense. He doesn't have to go through that whole thing . . . We'll see at the end of the week how it fits in. He's not going to be your starter and play every down. That's not what he's doing.''

Patrick Mahomes said today he doesn't think this will be the last time he quarterbacks the Chiefs against a Tom Brady team. "He's still playing at a high level,'' Mahomes said. "Unless he just doesn't want to play, which I don't see, I expect to see him for at least a couple more years. Whenever you play a guy like this, who's won all these championships, you want to go out there and give your best effort, obviously, and you want to try to find a way to win.''

Andy Reid on rookie RB Darwin Thompson, who got his first extended playing time against the Raiders on Sunday: ” The more he carries it and gets a feel for things I think the better he'll be . . . I thought it was important he was in with the No. 1 line and it was against their defense, their starting defense. I thought it was important that he got as many carries as possible.''

No joke: Chiefs becoming a big-play defense

A year after relying almost entirely on their offense, the Chiefs rode their defense with the division lead on the line against the Raiders.

Clark: Chiefs are good, but Ravens and Patriots are better (1:31)

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Patrick Mahomes on whether beating the Patriots next week was a necessary step for the Chiefs: “As far as it looks, you're going to have to go there to win at some point. It's kind of been a thing where we came close last year. When Alex (Smith) was here, we did get to go there and get the win (in 2017). So the guys on the team know how to. It's about trying to find the best way to do it.''
