A veteran of 138 games, Hochstein has spent time with Denver, New England and Tampa Bay over 10 NFL seasons. Mattison is a center who has played in 15 regular-season games with four starts in two NFL seasons. He was with Baltimore in 2010 and St. Louis last season, and spent two years on the Ravens' practice squad.

Ready or not, Chiefs' Lilja takes center stage

KANSAS CITY, Mo. The last time Chiefs guard Ryan Lilja had to play center in an NFL game before last Sunday was...well...never.

NFL Week 3: Vanderjacked Kansas City Style

Week 3 is over and the only thing you hear about is the replacement refs but the only guys that really matter are the kickers! The “Mess in Miami” is something that was not Vanderjacked worthy. Dan Carpenter missed two field goals, including one in overtime. Carpenter was only 2-4 on the day and certainly must take the brunt of the boos on this one. Of course not much went right...

San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs NFL Week 4 AFC West Preview

The AFC West is getting worse than the Big Ten these days and that is thanks to both of the favorites performing like duds lately.
