Pressure is building for Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli.For the second year in a row the Chiefs get spanked in there home opener against the Atlanta Falcons.Sure the defense had injuries and suspensions. Granted having linebacker Tamba Hali and cornerback Brandon Flowers would have helped.Sure quarterback Matt Cassel played well for one half of football.But by the end of the game the Falcons had put up 41 points. In last year’s opener the Bills put up 41 points.Sure the seats were empty by the end of the 3rd quarter.Kansas City fans are beginning to reach a boiling point.This isn’t New York or Philly, the fans have patience.However after dealing with a lousy MLB team all summer, by September the Chiefs always become the beacon of hope.Criticisms have been pointed at the fact the Chiefs are $28 million under the salary cap. Fans have recently attacked Clark Hunt’s wallet and his inability to open it on Twitter.Surprisingly the Chiefs' organization fired back, calling the fan...

Hot Kansas City Chiefs Cheerleaders. Today we continue on with the AFC West and get to enjoy the ladies of Kansas City. I figured it would be tough to keep up with the Broncos girls from yesterday and I was right. The Chiefs girls are hot, but just not close to Denver. Check them out below and judge for yourself.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. A bizarre and tragic Friday unfolded, at least peripherally, for Kansas City's two major sports franchises.
First, shortly after 2 p.m. and before the Royals were to play host to the Angels at Kauffman Stadium, a gunman shot a female parking lot attendant in parking lot A, east of the stadium. The gunman then returned to his car and shot and killed himself...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A reflective and remorseful Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali spoke to the media for the first time Wednesday since he was suspended for one game for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Hali began to answer the opening question from a reporter about the Chiefs' loss to Atlanta, then stopped in mid-sentence to make a statement.
"I want to apologize...
When Brandon Flowers went down at training camp with what looked at the time to be a serious injury, Chiefs fans every where held their breath, hoping against hope that he’d simply miss a few practices, perhaps a pre-season game, and then come back ready to play in week one.
Then after the first game for Kansas City came and went last Sunday against Atlanta, with no Flowers on...
With his sixth season in the NFL now underway, Dwayne Bowe has clearly established himself as one of the top players in the league at his position, topping 70 receptions every year, aside from 2009. A former standout at LSU, Bowe is playing out the remainder of this year on his franchise tag tender and will undoubtedly command a significant amount of money on the open market if...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Eric Berry never saw the hit coming until it was too late.
The Chiefs' Pro Bowl safety was ranging to his right, trying to defend the goal line in last season's opener, when Steve Johnson lined him up in his sights. The Bills wide receiver swooped in with his shoulder first and cut Berry down at the knees with a devastating block.
It was perfectly...
There is no guarantee Brandon Flowers will make his season debut Sunday at Buffalo, but there are signs that he will be on the field.
The Chiefs have listed Flowers as questionable to play Sunday after he practiced fully the past two days. Also, backup running back Jalil Brown is questionable with a groin injury,
Defensive tackle Anthony Toribio (ankle). Safety Kendrick Lewis...
By creating their own Twitter accounts, professional sports teams are accepting that the benefits of using social media outweigh the negatives of having to listen to fans air out their grievances. Twitter makes it easy for fans to voice their frustrations directly to the team after a tough loss, and that’s exactly what Missouri resident Travis Wright chose to do after the team’s...
Kansas City Chiefs @ Buffalo BillsKansas City Chiefs: The Chiefs come off a thorough pasting at the hands of the full throttle passing game of the Atlanta Falcons; but wait, there’s hope!

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.)

Berry tweeted in the offseason that he wondered whether it was done on purpose...
Week 2 gives NFL fans a very interesting matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Kansa City Chiefs.These were two teams who were picked by many experts, myself included as playoff sleepers in the preseason and who were both on the wrong side of blowouts in Week 1.The Bills’ “new look” defense was completely humiliated by a New York Jets' offense that failed to score a touchdown...
