Prediction: Chiefs will beat Jets

This is a tough matchup for the New York Jets, especially for the offense – new quarterback, hostile environment and an opponent that can generate plenty of heat on the passer. It’s also a fascinating matchup, considering the similarities in the offensive and defensive schemes, due to the Rex Ryan-Bob Sutton and Andy Reid-Marty Mornhinweg connections. The Jets’ only chance is to play conservatively and dominate with their running game, as the Kansas City Chiefs’ defense is allowing a hefty 4.

LAWRENCE — After stepping up in the pocket, Kansas quarterback Michael Cummings decided it was time to take off. He sprinted down the middle of the field, dodging Texas Tech defenders before starting to go into a half-slide at the end of his run. Austin Stewart didn’t let him finish it. The 223-pound senior safety lowered his helmet, delivering a blow with his right shoulder to the middle of Cummings’ back. read more

Royals look toward next season after dream run

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The emotions were still raw, the sting of defeat still fresh from Game 7 of the World Series when Billy Butler stood in front of his locker and spoke in a voice full of conviction. They would be back, this scrappy bunch of kids. Their return to the playoffs after 29 years was just the beginning, their 3-2 loss on Wednesday night hardly the end. The same team that swept through the playoffs before falling to the San Francisco Giants has brighter days ahead. read more

Chiefs' linebacker Mauga preps to face former team

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Finally healthy and given a shot to start, veteran linebacker Josh Mauga suddenly leads the resurgent Kansas City Chiefs in tackles nearing the midway point of the season. Never heard of him? The New York Jets can give you a primer. When they visit Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, they will gaze across the field at the very same linebacker that they decided was washed up. Mauga struggled with so many injuries the past couple seasons that the Jets finally let him go, only for him to find a home in Kansas City. read more

Royals have become big part of AL Central revival

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — When we last saw the White Sox, they were losing three of four games at home to the Kansas City Royals to close the 2014 season. Retiring captain Paul Konerko paused during a farewell speech that weekend to wish the Sox’ American League Central rivals well. ‘‘You guys can do it,’’ he said. ‘‘Represent.’’ Did they ever. The Royals qualified for the postseason for the first time in 29 years, then won eight consecutive playoff...

Royal Rundown: Bumgarner, Giants deny KC world championship

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Ninety feet. Ninety measly, lousy feet was the only thing standing between the Royals and a new ballgame in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium. Ninety feet, and a man on the mound trying to stake his claim as the greatest performer in a single World Series in history, that is. Probably felt more like 90 miles. read more

Kevin Haskin: Bumgarner just too good against Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The liner seemed oh so promising. It was laced by Omar Infante, the No. 9 hitter in the Kansas City Royals lineup, to begin the fifth inning Wednesday in Kauffman Stadium. You do not need to be informed who threw the pitch. You know. The guy Joe Buck dines with by candlelight. The guy who, this year, pitched more postseason innings than anyone in big-league history. The guy they call MadBum. Yeah, that guy, who came on in the fifth and won his third World Series game as San Francisco nipped Kansas City, 3-2. read more
