WATCH: Alex Smith Hits Travis Kelce With The 8-Yard Touchdown Pass

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is the kind of tight end every quarterback likes to have. He's a big enough guy that eh can go across the middle, catch the ball in traffic, and not cry later about getting set up by his QB to get laid out by  a linebacker. He's a great possession receiver and he has the kind of speed that can make a short reception turn in to a big play...

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Titans - Five Players to Watch

The first two teams the Kansas City Chiefs played have been two of the best defenses in the NFL. It’s been hard to watch the first team offense for most of those games as they have struggled to move the ball and haven’t put many points on the board. Where Chiefs fans can take solace is to remember the defenses they are playing and more importantly that the Chiefs have yet to...

Chiefs' Knile Davis could hold key to running success

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- There may be no more valuable player on the Kansas City Chiefs than Jamaal Charles, the game-breaking running back with the slick moves and world-class speed.

There isn’t a ‘LeBron James of football,’ and there never will be

Jamaal Charles and Adrian Peterson both think they’re the “LeBron James of Football.” Both are wrong, and here’s why. 1. A running back can’t be a LeBron — The last two seasons were the most pass-heavy campaigns in NFL history. The face of almost every team is the quarterback. If being the LeBron of the league means being the face of the league, there’s no way Charles...

Is Kansas City Chiefs QB Chase Daniel Becoming a Viable NFL Quarterback?

Chase Daniel is going in to his seventh season as an NFL quarterback. That is much longer than many, a fact made more remarkable by the fact that he has only thrown 75 passes (66 of them over the last two seasons in Kansas City).
