Kansas City Chiefs
New York Giants
The Kansas City Chiefs have gotten plenty of breaks during a turnaround that’s made NFL history. Their schedule might have given them another one this week.
The Chiefs will try to win five in a row for the first time in eight years when they host the winless Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
Kansas City hardly looked like a team that could contend for a second straight AFC West title after being outscored 89-10 in its first two games. To make matters worse, it lost running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Berry and tight end Tony Moeaki to season-ending injuries.
The Chiefs fell again in Week 3, but have recovered to become the first team to start 0-3 and move into at least a tie for the division lead after its next four games. This week, they’ll seek their first five-game win streak since a 9-0 start to the 2003 season.
Kansas City (4-3) has had the benefit of playing two last-place clubs during its streak, Minnesota and Indianapolis. The Colts are the league’s only other winless team.

It was like seeing a shooting star in full daylight. Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano rarely ever criticizes players.
You can point out how a certain offensive tackle - who shall remain nameless – has been a turnstile all season. Or you could hammer him on Brandon Marshall dropping a couple critical, but tough end zone passes – and Sparano would find some way to spin it...

The Chiefs come into Sunday riding a four game winning streak; including a big overtime win against their division foe San Diego. On the other hand, the Dolphins are riding…yeah [...]
With four interceptions this season, Brandon Flowers is making a name for himself in the NFL. But thanks to a rock star, the Chiefs CB hardly is making a dent anywhere else. Jeff Darlington explains.
(Eds: Stands as 1st Ld-Writethru on state line to update with quotes, details. With AP Photos.) By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer The Kansas City Chiefs will never be confused with the ''Greatest Show on Turf,'' not so long as Todd Haley is calling the shots.
The former wide receivers coach actually prefers a ground-based offense, as evidenced by the way Kansas City...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Dolphins defensive coordinator Mike Nolan praised rookie cornerback Jimmy Wilson this week as “an overachiever” and said he had “more good plays than bad” last week against the Giants in his first NFL start. Nolan will need Wilson to play well again, as Wilson will be making his second straight start [...]
The Kansas City Chiefs started the week with just one name on the injury report in S Jon McGraw, who was recovering from a shoulder injury suffered last Monday night against the San Diego Chargers. They'll enter Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins with two players listed on the injury report, as CB Javier Arenas didn't fully practice on Thursday. On Friday, Arenas...
The Miami Dolphins are standing behind quarterback Chad Henne and the legitimacy of his season-ending separated left shoulder. The Dolphins released a statement Saturday amid some sports talk radio speculation that Henne could have played through his Week 4 injury. Former NFL quarterback and current analyst Jim Miller told 640-AM that Henne "flat-out packed it in" by not...
Each year in fantasy football there are always a few receivers that seemingly come out of nowhere and dominate every single waiver wire report, target report, and weekly WR ranking report—like Jonathan Baldwin.
This year we have already seen what players such as Giants receiver Victor Cruz and Ravens receiver Torrey Smith can offer up fantasy owners, but both of these players...
Dolphins rookie running back Daniel Thomas, who has practiced this week, figures hell be good to go on Sunday when the Dolphins play at the Kansas City Chiefs. I feel good, Thomas said. I went through practice the whole week. Held up pretty well. So Ill be ready to go Sunday. If his recent pattern of playing two games and missing the next holds, Thomas will play this...
Dolphins running back Reggie Bush says that despite their 0-7 record, it’s still fun to be a Miami Dolphin. “Practice is still fun,” Bush said. “Guys are having a good time out there, still working and we’re still hacking away at it. It’s going to take one game at a time. We can’t worry.” Bush…
MIAMI - Some of the league's best offenses have tight ends wreaking havoc in the passing game. But naturally,...
The Miami Dolphins needed someone to spark their offnense, and DeMarco Murray would have been that guy.
