There’s no question that KC’s schedule is a tale of two halves, and the back end is undoubtedly the tougher half. In Kansas City’s first nine games, they faced only three teams with a winning record. Two of those were losses. Those nine teams’ combined records are 33-50.

Carolina Panthers @ Detroit Lions...
Matt Cassel wussed out. Something about a bruise on his throwing hand.
Face it, Cassel in no way wanted to square...
The Kansas City Chiefs are in disarray, Arrow-Heads, and I’m not sure they know what to do about it.
Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel return to Gillette Stadium with their Chiefs to take on their former boss in a Monday night affair!
Can an unproven Tyler Palko lead the Chiefs to victory in Foxborough?
Tom Brady doesn't have pleasant memories of the last time he saw the Kansas City Chiefs. It was the season opener in 2008, when a serious knee injury wiped out his year.
Since traffic for weeknight Patriots games competes with the evening commute, Gillette Stadium officials are encouraging fans to allow ample time to get to Gillette Stadium for the November 21, 8:30 p.m. matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football.
