Kansas City Chiefs
Last week: 31 (+0)
I’ve said all along that the Chiefs could be competitive and even win some games if they could avoid losing the turnover battle. They did exactly that last week and took Pittsburgh to overtime, ironically losing on a turnover, their only of the game. They played a very similar game to the Steelers and would have won if not for some costly special teams blunders and penalties, including one for excessive celebration on a touchdown that eventually got overturned and thus never really happened. Still, if they can avoid losing the turnover battle in a few of their games going forward, they can win at least one, which is why they aren’t dead last.
RB Jamaal Charles: Rushed for 100 yards (43 after contact) and a touchdown on 23 attempts, 1 broken tackle
RG Jon Asamoah: Allowed 1 quarterback hurry on 31 pass block snaps, run blocked for 31 yards and a touchdown on 5 attempts
CB Brandon Flowers: Allowed 3 catches for 14 yards and a touchdown on 6 attempt...

The Chiefs entered MNF as a 1-7 team that had not held the lead all season. They left MNF with another loss and a loss of respect. I was shocked how unprofessional the team acted.
There was a penalty on a TD when the Chief's player held the ball in the face of Steelers defender. Then there was a full team celebration in the endzone after a turnover that was...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. Eric Berry isnt afraid of knocking heads with 6-foot-4 tight ends. Or of making kamikaze runs downfield on special teams.
Anything in the horse family zebras, cows, anything thats close to resembling that, the Kansas City Chiefs safety said Wednesday. I just dont deal with them.
Berry admits he suffers from equinophobia, a psychological...
Chiefs offensive lineman Jon Asamoah will miss Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals after surgery on one of his thumbs.
Wide receiver Jon Baldwin has not been cleared following a head injury sustained in last week's game against Pittsburgh and is unlikely to be available. Tight end Jake O'Connell is also expected to miss the game with an ankle injury.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Matt Cassel will start at quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday against Cincinnati because Brady Quinn still has not been cleared to play following a concussion.

Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn says he was cleared by a Pittsburgh doctor before Monday night’s loss to the Steelers, per Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star.
“I’m real excited,” Quinn said, via Covitz. “I was glad to be able to come with the team and being around them again because it stinks not being around these guys and not feeling like you’re a part of them.”...
Football players are big and tough, but we all have our fears. I, for instance, have acrophobia — a fear of heights. Eric Berry of the Kansas City Chiefs has equinophobia — a fear of...

Eric Berry is a Pro Bowl safety and one of the most fearless players in the NFL. But bring a horse around him, and he’s immediately just as afraid as any other
“Anything in the horse family — zebras, cows, anything that’s close to resembling that,” Berry said on Wednesday, according to Fox Sports. “I just don’t deal with them.”

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...
Monday Night Football featured the Kansas City Chiefs traveling up to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers, and while I had absolutely little-to-no desire to watch the game, I woke up Tuesday morning wishing that I did. However, it wasn’t because I missed an amazing game. No, it was due to an act after a [...]The post Funniest Sports Celebrations In Recent Memory appeared first on...
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...
