Chiefs on Life Support after Crashing Season | Chiefs’ Truths

After the hard-fought but ineffectual loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Kansas City Chiefs find themselves in an unenviable situation. The team is not mathematically eliminated but is in need of CPR and maybe an epinephrine shot directly to the heart. In order to make the post-season, Kansas City not only has to beat the Chargers, but must rely on both the Browns and Jaguars to...

Kansas City Chiefs: Still in the hunt?

The Kansas City Chiefs took on the Pittsburgh Steelers this past Sunday in what seemed to be a must-win game for the Chiefs if they wanted any chance of making their way to the playoffs. However, they came up short, falling 20-12 in the matchup. The loss, however, had a couple of different aspects that the Chiefs can build upon in the future. Kansas City’s pass defense held Ben...

Chiefs still without TD catch from wide receiver

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs seemed so determined to break one of the most bizarre streaks of this NFL season last Sunday that they pulled off an audacious field-goal fake to help them out. The fake worked to perfection. It still didn't do any good. After getting a fresh set of downs and Jamaal Charles was stuffed for a 2-yard gain, Alex Smith threw a pass to Dwayne...

AFC playoffs: One spot open

Before we get to week 17 in the AFC, the playoff spots are pretty much all set except for the inclusion of one more team. This weekend's game will determine if either Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans or Kansas City Chiefs get to January, writes PFT's Mike Wilkening. Here's how things look as of week 16: New England Patriots: The AFC East winner has clinched No. 1 seed, a first...

Keeler: Justin Houston, not Jamaal Charles, is Chiefs' MVP of 2014

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- If chaos was art, Justin Houston would be its Monet. Mad Number 50 has racked up at least one sack in 12 of the Kansas City Chiefs' fifteen games this season. At one point, he had a streak running of six straight contests with at least one takedown. When that ended, a few weeks later, he started up another merciless streak, one running through five straight tilts...

Chiefs need plenty of help to return to playoffs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs did their playoff aspirations no help on Sunday. Nor did they help out their fans trying to figure out what it'll take to get them in. After losing 20-12 to the Steelers, the Chiefs are suddenly desperate for a whole lot of help. They must beat the Chargers in their regular-season finale next Sunday, and then hope Cleveland can beat Baltimore...

3 in the Kee: For a flawed, depleted Chiefs roster, 9-7 or 8-8 feels about right

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Admit it: If they'd have told you after Titans 26, Andy Gang 10, that you'd still be playing for a shot -- albeit a very, very, very, very, very, very long one -- at a postseason berth in Week 17, Kansas City Chiefs fans, you'd have bitten on that one. Hard. Or if somebody told you (to coin a documentary promo) the Chiefs (8-7) would basically be without Derrick...

Steelers Trade Passing Yards Allowed For Red Zone Stops Against Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith threw for a season-high 311 yards Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers and even though he also managed to complete 68.9% of the 45 passes that he attempted in the game, he wasn’t able to put the ball in the end zone for points. In addition to going 0-4 in […] Steelers Trade Passing Yards Allowed For Red Zone Stops Against Chiefs is...

The bottom line? Chiefs' offensive line is quite offensive

What can we take away from the Chiefs' dreadful 20-12 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday? Probably that the Chiefs are more than one or two players away from being a perennial playoff team. And where they are weakest is right up front, on the offensive line. The Chiefs' offensive line simply isn't good enough to mask all of quarterback Alex Smith's deficiencies. FIRST DOWN: We'll get...

Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers Have Small Fight Towards End of Game

When you need to win a game towards the end of the season in order to keep your playoff hopes alive it can be frustrating when it starts to become clear that you are not going to get that win. It certainly sucks, but it is still no excuse for playing stupid. Fights--like the one Kansas City and Pittburgh had late in the fourth quarter--are stupid.In cases like this with one locking...

Kansas City Chiefs at Pittsburgh Steelers: 2014 Week 16 NFL Pick

Kansas City Chiefs (8-6) at Pittsburgh Steelers (9-5) This is the toughest game of the week for me to predict. These two teams are almost identical in terms of rate of moving the chains differential this year, with Pittsburgh coming in 6th, and Kansas City coming in 7th. The Steelers have the better offense, moving the chains at a 78.23% rate, but allow opponents to move the chains...

Will a Chiefs WR finally catch a TD in Week 16?

The Kansas City Chiefs possess an unusual little piece of trivia for 2014 the season. Their wide receivers have yet to catch a touchdown pass in 14 games. In hopes of avoiding being shutout from a touchdown standpoint, Chiefs receivers take on a suspect Steelers secondary that has allowed 15 touchdowns by wide receivers this season. Additionally, the Steelers’ defense has allowed...

Chiefs Defense Susceptible To Runs Between The 20s

While the Kansas City Chiefs defense is impressive when it comes to not giving up deep passes and keeping opponents out of their own end zone, they have shown this season that they can be run on between the 20s. Entering Week 16, the Chiefs defense has allowed an average of 5.04 yards per carry […] Chiefs Defense Susceptible To Runs Between The 20s is a post from: The post Chiefs...

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce Has a Laugh Out Loud 'Touchdown Face'

The Kansas City Chiefs thought they had someone special when they drafted Travis Kelce in the third round of the 2013 draft out of Cincinnati. They just didn't figure they would have to wait till the '14 season to find out (injuries will do that though). Sometimes good things come to those who wait, and a player that has caught 56 passes for 747 yards and five touchdowns definitely...

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe Auditioning for his Next Team?

The Kansas City Chiefs have made something painfully clear this season--they are not a wide receiver-oriented kind of team. It's not that they do not like to pass because they do. With the way things have gone this year they just haven't done it with their wide receivers very much choosing instead to focus on their tight ends in the passing game.As a result, Dwayne Bowe has had to...

Latest update on Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry

This started off quite the journey for Berry, as he soon found out that he was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma, which is cancer of the lymph tissue within the body. Berry was first picked up by the Chiefs in 2010 in the first round, and went on to be a three-time Pro Bowler. Needless to...

The Kansas City Chiefs had their backs against the wall late in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. They were faced with a 3rd-and-19 situation, and things looked bleak. Enter Dwayne Bowe. QB Alex Smith hit Bowe on what should have been a modest 5-yard gain on a quick slant. But Bowe racked up yards after the catch to move the chains. And it was...
