(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer The Chiefs can thank a simple game for easing some of their locker room tension. And just maybe helping them win a couple games.
Coach Todd Haley decided to bring the ''cornhole'' game into the locker room when his team was floundering. The premise is simple: Two pieces of lumber are situated 33 feet apart, with a hole drilled in each, and players try to lob four bean bags through the hole for points.
Haley played the game with his family during summer vacations.
Just about every player in the locker room has taken a shot at it. Rivals have emerged, trash-talking is common. And the result is more unity than at any point this season for the Chiefs, who are 2-3 headed into their bye week.
