Amon Gordon sat in a corner of the Chiefs' locker room Thursday, talking about the winding routes the road can take you. He's an NFL defensive lineman, 30 years old, and the Chiefs are Gordon's ninth team in seven seasons.

former Bear Kyle Orton over a struggling Tyler Palko on Sunday at Soldier
This week is a battle between two bruised teams. Both squads have lost their starting quarterbacks and are struggling on offense.
The Chiefs do not seem to believe Tyler Palko is the answer and we may very well see newly acquired Kyle Orton take the field this week. Palko turned the ball over four times last week and Kansas City has only scored one touchdown in their past four...
