Routt, who was released by the Kansas City Chiefs earlier this season, will...

Chiefs deal with how to remember Belcher

KANSAS CITY, Mo. At some point, a Chiefs locker room attendant will dutifully take away the practice gear and jersey inside Jovan Belcher's locker room stall at the team's practice facility. Belcher's name plate and No. 59 will be removed as well. And at the very least that instant reminder of Belcher himself or the unspeakable acts he committed last Saturday morning...

Watering down constitutional rights is not easily undertaken. So scaring Americans and then using that fear to explain why this egregious assault on their rights is for their own good is genius. This is exactly why...

But according to Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak, that doesn't faze his team in the least.Kubiak's division-leading squad has secured itself a playoff spot as well, and at 11-1 and unbeaten on the road, they don't seem to care where they play. “It’s a confidence thing...
