    . Westbrook has missed 27 games since having a procedure on
    Dec. 27 to deal with swelling in his injured right knee — the third operation on
    the knee in nine months. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson
    has played with dozens of cornerbacks over 12 years in the NFL.He admits that
    none of them has been quite like Marcus Peters.The second-year pro has an
    uncanny ability to read and react, to know where a pass is going seemingly
    before the quarterback.Peters had two of the six interceptions of the Jets Ryan
    Fitzpatrick in a 24-3 win on Sunday , his second straight two-pick game and the
    highlight of an eight-turnover performance.Its not just Peters ability that
    stands out, though.Ive played with a lot of really good corners, Johnson said,
    but they were not as young as Marcus.Yes, the 23-year-old Peters is still a pup
    in the grand scheme of things. But hes been playing like a bulldog since his
    first game as a pro, when he picked off Houston quarterback Brian Hoyer.Peters
    went on to intercept eight passes last regular season, earning the rookie a spot
    in the Pro Bowl. He added another interception against the Texans in a 30-0
    playoff romp last January, a victory that ended nearly two decades of postseason
    futility for Kansas City.Heck, Peters even picked off a pass in the Pro
    Bowl.Theyre going to have to stop throwing to his side or he is going to have
    100 interceptions, Johnson said with a smile.Hes the ultimate competitor. Hes
    harder on himself than anybody else. Thats the best thing about him, as a young
    player -- he doesnt let anything slide.Peters hasnt exactly had a smooth road to
    stardom.He was kicked off his team at Washington after a series of run-ins with
    coaches, culminating with a blowup with coach Chris Petersen.The series of
    events was a big reason he slid midway through the first round of the draft,
    where Kansas City took him with the 18th overall pick.The Chiefs defended the
    choice from the moment they made it, insisting they had done due diligence on
    him.The Chiefs even sent a scout to Peters hometown of Oakland, California, in
    the days before the draft to make sure they knew everything about him.What they
    learned was that Peters had grown up. He had matured. He had become a father and
    wanted to take care of his family. He learned from his mistakes and was ready to
    move on.Peters has been a model teammate and citizen in Kansas City.Hes also
    used his newfound stature to help push the movement spearheaded by 49ers
    quarterback Colin Kaepernick for social equality.ddddddddddddIt was Peters who
    raised a gloved fist during the national anthem before the season opener, a
    homage to John Carlos and Tommie Smith at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics.Peters
    described afterward what life is like in the predominantly black neighborhoods
    where he grew up, and how he wants to affect change by reaching out to children
    in the community.But his ability to do that will be determined in part by his
    ability on the field, his ability to stay in the middle of the conversation. And
    Peters has done nothing to diminish that in three games.He rallied after a poor
    start against San Diego to shut down the Chargers receivers in the second half,
    giving Kansas City a chance to rally for the biggest comeback win in franchise
    history.The next week, he made Houston rue him once more with two interceptions
    of Brock Osweiler.On Sunday, Peters was at it again with two interceptions
    against the Jets.It was all about executing the game plan to a `T, Peters said.
    We let our pass rush get there, we played underneath, we let our safeties play
    over the top and we made plays.Sounds easy, right?Peters had the first of the
    six interceptions, and also the first of four in the fourth quarter that sealed
    the win. In between, things seemed to get a little contagious.Thats the beauty
    of it, Peters said. When things are happening like they did, you enjoy it. You
    embrace the opportunities that you have. You capitalize on them and have fun
    doing it.Peters is far from flawless. He still boils over when things are going
    against him. He tends to take too many chances, and gets beaten while trying to
    bait quarterbacks into making a bad throw.But when he is picking off passes at
    such a torrid clip, the Chiefs can deal with it.Listen, he has great abilities,
    Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. All the guys know that. They respect the job hes
    done since hes been here. Hes a good football player, a heady football
    player.Does he take chances sometimes? Yeah, he does, Reid said. But hes got a
    short memory, which youve got to have there. He gets right back on it and
    nothing gets him down.---Online: AP NFL website: and ' ' '
