Chiefs pass defense faces tough test vs. Chargers

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The sight of quarterbacks feasting on the Chiefs' defense left an impression throughout the final seven games of the 2013 regular season. The Chiefs allowed an average of 306 yards passing per game, and finished 25th in the NFL in pass defense last year. That doesn't include Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck's 443 yards passing in the playoffs...

Chiefs’ secondary avoiding a repeat of last year's aerial circus

One of the enduring images of the Chiefs’ 22-17 loss to San Francisco last week was 49ers receiver Brandon Lloyd’s soaring 29-yard catch over Sean Smith in the fourth quarter. Yet, it must be said that while the catch was majestic — it made many highlight reels after the game — it was also notable due to its rarity. After the Chiefs routinely got worked over on deep passes...

49ers rally for 22-17 win over Alex Smith-led Chiefs

As Brandon Lloyd soared toward the sunny sky that baked Levi’s Stadium, the 49ers’ fate went with him Sunday. Their fourth-quarter comeback might not have happened if Lloyd didn’t haul in a 29-yard reception and spark a go-ahead scoring drive in an eventual 22-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Of course, the 49ers’ second-straight win also might not happen if Craig Dahl...

Is San Diego’s Brandon Flowers the best shutdown corner in the NFL?

NFL cornerbacks always like to argue about which one of them is the best. Richard Sherman and Patrick Peterson have gotten into several Twitter feuds on the subject and everyone from Brandon Flowers to DeAngelo Hall has told the world they’re number one. But who is it really? What if I told you that as of this moment it’s not Sherman or Peterson? What if I told you that neither...

3 in the Kee: When Chiefs look in the mirror, they won't like what they see

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Accepting the concept that the Tennessee Titans might not be that bad isn't what's driving the locals nuts today. It's accepting the concept that the Kansas City Chiefs might not be that good. "Yeah, it was tough," quarterback Alex Smith said after his Chiefs' 26-10 egg-laying Sunday in the team's home opener -- their last home game...

Beleaguered Chiefs secondary adjusting to rules

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Sean Smith backpedalled into the end zone with the scout-team wide receiver, careful not to lay a hand on him. When the quarterback let go of the ball, the Chiefs' cornerback quickly jumped on it, snapping it away for an easy interception. It was perfect coverage. Perfect technique. It was an important play for Smith to make in more ways than one. Not only...

The good, the bad and the ugly from the Kansas City Chiefs first preseason game

Two years ago when the Kansas City Chiefs came out of their 2012 season-opening preseason game with a win against the Arizona Cardinals, I came to work the following day proclaiming “this was their year.” As we all know, they wouldn’t win another game for five weeks, and just two more  all season – the regular season. So, it is with very cautious optimism that I give my...

Sean Smith’s play a bright spot in otherwise dreary Chiefs secondary performance

It’s tempting to tamp down anything that happens in an NFL preseason game. It’s also impossible to know how to process much of the mishmash of the Chiefs’ 41-39 victory over Cincinnati on Thursday. But there was no rationalizing or averting the eyes from this: They began their game at Arrowhead Stadium in what might be called playoff form, which is to say immediately conjuring...

Return game sparks Chiefs to 41-39 win over Bengals in preseason opener

Even in the preseason, the return game came to the rescue of the Chiefs once again. While the Chiefs’ first-team offense had trouble picking up first downs, and the secondary had problems as feared Thursday night, the return game was in fine form in a 41-39 victory over Cincinnati in a wild preseason opener at Arrowhead Stadium.
