When asked if he believes in karma Alex Smith smiled. That's something he does a lot these days. "No" Smith said. "But I do believe in hard work and doing things the right way. Over time if it's karma or whatever you want to call it I think doing things the right way working hard and focusing on the details makes good things happen." Good things are happening to Smith. After an emotionally wrenching season when he was jettisoned by the only NFL team he'd ever known he is now the quarterback of the 5-0 Chiefs. The Chiefs appreciate and have complete faith in him.

The Kansas City Chiefs and their fans are experiencing something that they are not accustomed to--success.

Is the Chiefs Defense Good Enough?

It's time to adjust our expectations for this season.I've been holding back a little. I've been hurt before. Every time I've allowed myself to believe we could be more than a playoff team (OK, that hasn't really happened in a decade, but still), I found my hopes smashed into a thousand pieces by the Bills, The Kicker Who Shall Not Be Named, or Peyton Manning ...

Oakland Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs: Week 6 NFL Pick

Oakland Raiders (2-3) at Kansas City Chiefs (5-0) Before the season, the Raiders were expected to be an all-time bad team. That hasn’t happened, as they are 2-3 right now and credit Reggie McKenzie and Dennis Allen for building a passable team despite over 50 million in dead money on their cap.
