Can the red hot Kansas City Chiefs claim the number one seed in the AFC?

If you were among the many fans who wrote the Kansas City Chiefs off after they started the 2014 season with a 0-2 record, you weren’t alone.

. @mmigliore: Are the Bills ready to Outlast the Other AFC Playoff Hopefuls?

I was enjoying a beautiful afternoon in the lower bowl when an ill-advised Jeff Tuel pass was intercepted by Sean Smith and returned 100 yards for a Kansas City touchdown, opening the door...

Behind Enemy Lines: What Chiefs fans need to know about the Denver Broncos

1) How do you think the Denver offense will exploit the Chiefs losing starting ILB Derrick Johnson and DE Mike DeVito to season ending injury? It might sound odd but I think you will see Peyton Manning and company make a more concerted effort to run the football. The Broncos offense wants to be more balanced as we saw on Sunday night against the Colts. Denver passed the ball 36 times...
