Last week, it was Jamaal Charles. This week it’s Derrick Johnson. Johnson was at the Chiefs’ facility on Wednesday.“I’m very fortunate to be drafted to the Chiefs in 2005,” Johnson says in the video. “Dick Vermeil—he actually told me, ‘We don’t have a high enough pick to pick you up.’ I was thinking the same thing but little did I know how it works in the draft, and at 15, I was there, waiting for Kansas City to pick me.”The Chiefs selected Johnson, and he played with the franchise for 13 years. The video shows Chiefs head coach Andy Reid signing Johnson to the one-day deal.“For the Chiefs to roll out the red carpet for me, it was pretty special,” Johnson said. “It just reminds me of what I’ve done here.It means a lot for me to come back, to sign a one-day contract, to retire as a Chief. Playing in this league for 14 years has been an honor. It’s one of those things where you can look back and be proud of what you did.”The final huddleReid escorted Johnson to the practice field Womens Xavier Williams Jersey , where he greeted the coaching staff, GM Brett Veach and new defensive end Frank Clark.After practice, Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo brought Johnson to the middle of the huddle.“Let me just say this: this is Derrick Johnson, you guys know played here for a long time,” Spagnuolo told the group. “First-round draft pick—15th pick. Four Pro Bowls, Right?”“Two All-Pro seasons,” Johnson said.“I’m going to get all of it,” Spagnuolo said, as the players laughed. “Two All-Pros, right? 14 interceptions. Leading tackler for the Chiefs. 1,151 tackles.”Then it was Johnson’s turn to speak to the team.“I wasn’t expecting to speak, but being here for 13 years—man, this is a great opportunity for y’all to do something big Tyrann Mathieu Jersey ,” he said. “Big time. It’s a good time to be a Chief—I’ll tell you that right now. It’s a good time to be a Chief. And there’s a lot of new energy out here, especially with having a new defensive coordinator, so y’all go get them, man. Make sure y’all take advantage of your opportunities, especially during this time, during the offseason. Make sure you work on something when you get out on the field. That’s how you get better. Look at film, get your corrective criticism or whatnot, come on the field and work on something. Have something to work on every time you get out on the field—one thing to work on—that’s how you get better. It goes fast, man. It goes fast, so take advantage, man.”The Chiefs then let Johnson break down one, final huddle. Now retired, Johnson ends the video by saying he is shifting his life’s focus to his children http://www.chiefslockerroom.com/authentic-anthony-sherman-jersey , though he has expressed an interest in coaching in the past.Something tells me he will be back. After a record-breaking day, Philip Rivers was quick to credit the guys on the receiving end of his pinpoint passes.Rivers tied the NFL mark for consecutive completions and broke records for the most to start a game and the highest completion percentage in a game as the Los Angeles Chargers dismantled the Arizona Cardinals 45-10 on Sunday."There were some catches that could easily fall incomplete. There were a lot of guys involved in it," Rivers said.The 15-year veteran was on target with his first 25 passes and finished 28 of 29 for 259 yards and three touchdowns in three quarters. It was also his 11th straight game with multiple TD passes.Rivers' 25 straight completions tied Ryan Tannehill's mark from 2015. The Dolphins QB completed his last seven throws against the Tennessee Titans in on Oct. 18, 2015, and then his first 18 the following week against the Houston Texans."There are far-off dreams where you wonder if you are going to have a game where you are never going to miss one and then you say, 'Probably not.' The fact that we were staying there in the fourth quarter says something," Rivers said.Rivers came in having completed 67 percent of his throws this season, good for 13th in the league. Now he's at 69.5 percent, which would tie his career best.Rivers 鈥?who said he did not know he was near Tannehill's record 鈥?tied the mark for consecutive completions with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Keenan Allen midway through the third quarter. He had his only incompletion on the next possession when he was rushed and was unable to connect on a short pass to Austin Ekeler.Rivers did break Mark Brunell's record for completions to start a game. Brunell had 22 straight for the Washington Redskins against the Houston Texans on Sept. 24, 2006. Rivers' 96.8 percent accuracy surpassed Kurt Warner's 92.3 percent, which was set in 2009 when he went 24 of 26 for Arizona against Jacksonville."He was hot," Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said. "Guys were getting open and making plays for him. There were some great catches out there today."All three of Rivers' touchdown passes were plays near the boundary where the receiver was able to bring the ball in while being covered. Mike Williams caught two in the corner of the end zone, and Allen's was just inbounds while being draped by Arizona's Tre Boston."He makes everything easier for us as receivers Womens Harrison Butker Jersey ," Williams said. "Philip put the ball up for me to go make a play and I'm just going up and making it."Of Rivers' 28 completions 鈥?which went to seven players 鈥?eight came on screen passes behind the line of scrimmage. Five were in the air for 10 yards or more, including three that were 20 or more yards.The Cardinals (2-9) jumped out to a 10-0 lead with scores on their first two possessions before the Chargers (8-3) scored touchdowns on six of seven possessions. Los Angeles seized momentum with a 28-point second quarter."We played a complete football game," Lynn said. "It started off slow but we made adjustments and guys responded."Rivers was 19 of 19 in the first half for 187 yards. According to SportRadar, the last perfect first half with 15 or more attempts was by Warren Moon, who went 16 of 16 for Seattle against Oakland on Nov. 1, 1998. He completed all 10 passes during a two-minute drill that culminated in Williams' TD with 16 seconds remaining.Melvin Gordon, who came into the game sixth in the league in rushing, ran for two touchdowns in the second quarter before suffering a knee injury in the third. He finished with 61 yards on 10 carries.Austin Ekeler accounted for 103 yards from scrimmage (35 rushing, 68 receiving) and a touchdown.Arizona's Josh Rosen, who grew up nearby in Manhattan Beach and played at UCLA, was 12 of 19 for 105 yards with a touchdown and interception. David Johnson had 17 carries for 63 yards. The Cardinals had 108 yards of offense in the first quarter but just 41 the rest of the game."We talked about coming in here on the road, starting fast. I thought we did a great job of doing that, taking the first drive down and scoring Daniel Sorensen Jersey , and from that point, the wheels just sort of fell off a little bit," Cardinals coach Steve Wilks said.41 AND COUNTINGLarry Fitzgerald's 25-yard touchdown from Rosen was his first career catch at StubHub Center, the 41st different stadium where Fitzgerald has a reception. He could extend that total when the Cardinals go to Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Dec. 16.BOSA BREAKS OUTDefensive end Joey Bosa, who returned last week after missing the first nine games with a bone bruise in his left foot, had two sacks and five tackles."I felt more confident knowing I went through 31 plays last week," said Bosa, who had the sixth multi-sack game of his three-year career. "It felt amazing to get a sack. It's been too long between sacks. It was fun."INJURIESCardinals: Linebacker Josh Bynes suffered a thumb injury during the second quarter. Wilks said the injury is not considered to be serious.Chargers: Gordon did not return after his knee injury. Lynn said he hopes to know more on Monday, adding: "Hopefully what happened is not serious. His durability has been pretty good this season."UP NEXTCardinals: Travel to Green Bay next Sunday.Chargers: Travel to Pittsburgh next Sunday for a prime-time game.
