KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli has often said free agency is a flawed way to build a team, where players available are often overpriced or on the downward side of their careers. Sure, it's always necessary to sign a couple guys to plug holes, but Pioli would much rather draft the right guys, develop them from within the organization, and generate the kind of stability that has made franchises such as the Pittsburgh Steelers the model of NFL success.

Romeo Crennel on Chiefs dancing: ‘I don’t expect it to happen again’

The Kansas City Chiefs have been featured in several headlines already this week, and as you know there is nothing positive to say about their on-field performance this season. During Monday night’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Chiefs were dancing machines. They were penalized for excessive celebration on a touchdown that ended up not counting.

Cincinnati Bengals (4-5) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-8) Almost every year, we have one team go from in the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer. Right now, every playoff team from last year has at least 4 wins. That means one of two things. We’re not going to have a team like that this year (only happened 1 other time in the last decade) or either Detroit, New Orleans, or Cincinnati is about...

Why the one win Kansas City Chiefs can hold serve at home against the Cincinnati Bengals
