Yes, Darrelle Revis will be suiting up for the Kansas City Chiefs at MetLife Stadium on Sunday when they visit the New York Jets, a team with which he played for eight seasons. The seven-time Pro Bowl cornerback's first game after he initially left, in 2013, was against the Jets as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The more pressing issue for the Chiefs is trying to fix their stunning and prolonged downturn toward mediocrity.

The New York Giants are 2-1 against the AFC West. Head coach Ben McAdoo was asked about playing well against that division in a conference call previewing Sunday's game against the Raiders at Oakland Coliseum. Eli Manning was benched in favor of Geno Smith after 210 consecutive starts.

Philip Rivers will have the NFL's longest active streak of consecutive starts by a quarterback after Eli Manning gets benched by the New York Giants this weekend. ''I honestly thought it was pathetic, really,'' Rivers said Wednesday when asked about the Giants' decision. ''The guy, he's been out there 210 straight games with no telling how many bumps and bruises and injuries for his team,'' Rivers added before practice with the Los Angeles Chargers.

The New York Giants have been making mistakes all season. Giants co-owner John Mara on Wednesday admitted there had to be a better way to inform Manning this week that his playing time was being cut after 210 consecutive starts. Speaking for the first time since coach Ben McAdoo announced Tuesday that Geno Smith would start against Oakland, Mara said that he made a couple of mistakes in handling the situation.

Eli Manning lasted a lot longer than most before being tossed onto the scrap heap that eventually claims almost everyone who has ever strapped on a helmet in the NFL. Sentimentality doesn't go far in the league, where what you've done in past Super Bowls isn't nearly as important as what you did in your last game. Manning probably understands that better than most, coming as he does from a royal family of NFL quarterbacks.

Week 13 is typically the last regular season game in most season-long fantasy football leagues, so you'll want to give a lot of thought before submitting your lineups. If you're fighting for a playoff spot, our advice is to go with the players that got you there, but unexpected injuries and suspensions may not always make that possible.

He's averaged 340 passing yards, thrown five TDs and just one interception in his last two games against the Browns. The Browns have given up the second most points per game this season.

Just about everyone around the NFL ripped the New York Giants and coach Ben McAdoo for the clumsy way they benched quarterback Eli Manning, but Eli’s father Archie Manning did not. Archie did tell the New York Daily News’ Gary Myers that Eli was hurt by the move, and his most telling comment might have come when he was asked if Eli would play for the Giants again.

Regardless of which NFL mast you nail your colours to, it was difficult to watch Eli Manning hold back tears on Tuesday and not feel some degree of sympathy. Manning's emotional locker room interview came after the New York Giants announced they had benched their starting quarterback for Geno Smith, ending his streak of 210 consecutive starts in regular-season games - the second-longest for a quarterback in NFL history - in the process.

The New York Giants have placed cornerback Janoris Jenkins on injured reserve. The Giants announced the move Wednesday, saying that Jenkins is having ankle surgery. Defensive tackle Khyri Thornton was signed and took his place on the roster for Sunday's game in Oakland.
