Kansas City Chiefs to make the playoffs +250
I didn’t really see any value with over 7.5 (-175) on the Chiefs, but I thought it was a little strange their odds to make the playoffs were this high. The odds makers seen fairly certain they’ll win 7 and probably 8 games, but the AFC sucks. 9 wins can get you into the playoffs. The Chiefs have legitimate talent around the quarterback and the Alex Smith/Andy Reid combination should stabilize their Head Coaching situation, their quarterback situation, and their league worst turnover margin. Add in a last place schedule in arguably the easiest division in football in by far the easier of the two conferences and I think this is a playoff team. One team goes from 5 wins or fewer to the playoffs every year.
Minnesota Vikings under 7 wins -125
One team also does the opposite and I think the Vikings are the team to do it this year. They weren’t actually far from being one of the 3 worst teams in the NFC last year according to DVOA. DVOA had the...

Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles suffered an apparent quad injury during Sunday’s win over the Jaguars.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, Charles is expected to be fine.
After the game, both coach Andy Reid and Charles said Charles, who was stepped on, will be fine. A league source added that Charles will be “totally fine,” which is apparently even better than fine.
Today rookie linebacker Mike Catapano was able to get his first career sack. His sack also caused him an injured finger, but the kid is a gamer and played through it. His teammate Eric Kush had a picture to show the world, how big of a gamer Catapano is. @EricKush64: Catapanos sack finger #ouch
Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Tyson Jackson was rushing the passer when Jacksonville Jaguars center Brad Meester grabbed a hold of his pants and pantsed Jackson. Obviously it stopped Jackson, but it didn’t keep the Chiefs from sacking Blaine Gabbert.
Tyson Jackson of the Kansas City Chiefs needs a belt ASAP. If anyone could make sure he wears it next week we would all appreciate it. Thanks!

Andy Reid and Alex Smith each proved that previous success means little in the what-have-you-done-for-me-lately NFL, but the Kansas City Chiefs are banking on them to help usher in a bright future for a franchise that has missed the playoffs five of the last six seasons.
The excitement is tempered for the Jacksonville Jaguars, who are more...

Kansas City Chiefs (0-0) at Jacksonville Jaguars (0-0)
The Chiefs were no ordinary 2-14 team. They had 6 Pro-Bowlers last year. That might sound baffling, but it’s not. Only Eric Berry and maybe Tamba Hali (who had a down year) didn’t deserve it, but they could have easily been replaced by Brandon Flowers and Justin Houston. They have 8 of my top-200 players, significantly above...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Andy Reid era opened with a resounding victory. Gus Bradley's tenure started with a lopsided loss.
It was about what everyone expected from two teams that finished 2-14 last season.
Alex Smith threw two early touchdown passes, Kansas City's defense dominated all day and the Chiefs handled the Jacksonville Jaguars 28-2 on Sunday.
The Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars both got new coaches over the off-season. Now comes the task of winning.
Kansas City will head into EverBank Field in Jacksonville with head coach Andy Reid and new quarterback Alex Smith looking to start a new era of Chiefs football. Of course the Chiefs will do some things like they have in the past such as giving running back Jamaal...
