NFL Draft Diamonds:
The Broncos, the Seahawks and the Chiefs had all had pretty easy schedules to be honest, but look at who the Chiefs have played. They beat the Giants and Jaguars, who are terrible. The took down the Cowboys, Eagles, Raiders, and Titans, who are at best .500 teams. They have not played anybody yet that was […]
BEST OF MAXIM
Jamaal Charles and the Kansas City Chiefs are one of two unbeatens left in the NFL. Great googily moogily.
The Kansas City Chiefs have supplanted the now defeated New Orleans Saints as the #2 team in the week 6 edition of iSportsweb’s NFL Power Rankings. It’s as surprising as it sounds for a team that won all of two games last year.
Leading the way is quarterback Alex Smith ...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Every time Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is flushed from the pocket, it seems that one of two things happens: He uses his fleet feet to scramble for yards, or he throws the ball away.
Neither of which is a bad thing.
The Chiefs have never had a quarterback who can make things happen on the ground with the same nimbleness as Smith, nor have they had one in recent...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Five observations on the current state of the Chiefs.
GIVE ME THE BALL
Much has been written and said about Jamaal Charles perhaps getting overworked, and that the toll of all his hits will diminish his effectiveness later in the season.
Puh-leeze, says Charles.
"I'm not worried about my pace," Charles tells us. "I've been doing this...
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith is mostly known as a game manager, the dreaded moniker for saying 'he can't throw downfield. However, coach Andy Reid has no problem with it at all, matter of fact he used the term himself to describe his signal caller. Not losing a game is a skill all in its own right and Smith has done just that, putting his team in a position win.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- In some ways, Akeem Jordan is the Ringo Starr of the Chiefs' linebacking group.
Jordan, an inside linebacker, goes unnoticed for the most part, simply keeping the beat as the rest of the band -- Justin Houston, Derrick Johnson and Tamba Hali -- rack up sacks and bask in the media spotlight.
It's an unsung role Jordan doesn't mind.
It’s only October and the season is far from over but receiver Dexter McCluster has come to expect the same scene whenever he strolls into the Chiefs’ locker room after a victory.
First he sees the smiles. The laughter. The high-fives and the relief. Then he hears the rap music which always blasts out of a small red boombox supplied by the player who has perhaps sacrificed more...
Look there are a dozen reasons this whole thing will be as outdated as a flip-phone soon enough but while the numbers line up we might as well say it out loud:
This Chiefs’ defense has a chance to go down as one of the best in recent NFL memory.
Now we’re all adults here. We all know the Chiefs’ first six opponents included the Jaguars and maybe two playoff teams...

The Kansas City Chiefs have a chance to get to 7-0 in front of a home crowd that last week set the world record for noise in an open-air stadium, with one of the best defenses in the league, against a team that has a rookie quarterback (Case Keenum) making his first NFL start of his career. The situation...
The Kansas City Chiefs' offense ranks a middle-of-the-pack 18th in the league according to FootballOutsiders.com and Alex Smith is 20th in QB efficiency. The 2005 first-overall pick who spent the first eight years of his career in San Francisco is also completing just 56.5 percent of his passes (his lowest conversion rate since 2007).
But the Chiefs are 6-0 tied for first in...
The 6-0 Kansas City Chiefs have placed a high emphasis on getting to the passer. The Chiefs defensive unit ranks first in the NFL with 31 sacks this season, tied for the fifth-most sacks in the first six games of a season since 1963, when team sacks became an official NFL statistic (individual sacks became an official statistic in 1982).
The most opportunistic defense in the NFL and strong special teams have allowed the Kansas City Chiefs to overcome a mediocre offense for the second-best start in team history.
The Houston Texans haven't been quite as fortunate, with a glaring turnover problem weighing down its league-best defense and otherwise quality offense.
Kansas City (6-0) will look to capitalize on those...
On Sunday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs face a Houston Texans team that has their backs to the wall. They’re already fading out of the AFC South picture and with an embattled quarterback, a head coach searching for answers and one of the best defensive players on the planet, they have one thing in mind.
We're seven weeks into the 2013 season, and the outcomes of games have been just as unpredictable as the rankings.Who thought halfway into October the Kansas City Chiefs would be making a push for the No. 1 team in the NFL? Probably not too many fans. The same goes for the Giants and Redskins; did anyone really expect them to sink to the NFL-gutters with a team like the Jaguars...
Only two unbeaten teams are still standing in the NFL, and both are in the AFC West. That means that even if the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs continue to tear the opposition apart, something will eventually have to give.
"Eventually" is actually capped at Week 11, because that's when the Broncos and Chiefs will meet in Denver.
If the Broncos and Chiefs...
