Joe Cool goes up against Brady's backup. Ed Reed's brother goes missing. And Jamaal Charles appears to have dodged the flu, thanks to an advanced hygiene routine Chiefs coach Todd Haley put in place before the game.
According to the AP:
Players are being told to wash their hands thoroughly with soap and hot water to keep anyone from getting sick...As another precaution, players are removing their practice jerseys and putting them in a big hamper before they go into the locker room.
Haley described the measures as, "a re-emphasis lesson, kindergarten rules." Don't ever say the Chiefs don't want this win.
