“For ‘Shawn to finish off this last little stretch of his career here at home, that’s dope,” Peters said Saturday at a Fam 1st Foundation Football Camp, via Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group.

“It’s going to feel good for him,” Peters said of Lynch’s homecoming. “It’s going to be a good feeling. It’s going to be a good feeling for Oakland. But when we come here, we’re going to beat the dog [expletive] out of him.”
The Chiefs beat the Raiders twice in 2016, with Peters’ defensive crew holding Oakland’s offense to 13 points or fewer in each contest. In two years, Peters has never lost to the Raiders and picked off Derek Carr twice in four games.
The AFC boasts football’s deepest division heading into the 2017 season. If the Chiefs are to repeat as division champs, they’ll need to start with knocking up the surging Raiders and the Bay Area’s new Beast Mode weapon.
