Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith completed 20-of-34 passes for 172 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the 18-16, Divisional Round loss on Sunday. What It Means: The Chiefs scored the only two touchdowns of this game, but it still wasn't enough to overcome the Steelers. Smith and the Chiefs got the scoring started with a five-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Albert Wilson out of the wishbone formation on a play-action boot to the left. Predictably, Kansas City's offense went into a shell after the score and couldn't do much of anything before laboring for a...

Kansas City Chiefs co-offensive coordinator Brad Childress is a leading candidate to fill the Buffalo Bills' vacancy at offensive coordinator, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. What It Means: The former Minnesota Vikings head coach has spent the last four years in Kansas City, first working as a spread game analyst before being promoted to co-offensive coordinator in 2016.

Chiefs convinced Alex Smith will be starting quarterback in 2017

The Kansas City Chiefs are committed to quarterback Alex Smith as their 2017 starter, head coach Andy Reid said. What It Means: "Do I still think we can win with Alex?," Reid asked rhetorically. "Yeah, we were right there." Smith will almost certainly be back under center for a fifth season in Kansas City. Smith has made no progress as a Chief, stubbornly minding the store while trying to avoid mistakes at all costs. With Smith going on 33, the Chiefs at the very least need a plan-of-succession in mind. Smith's game manager ways led him to a 0.14 Passing Net Expected Points per...

Alex Smith knows Chiefs missed out on “big, big opportunity”

Alex Smith knows Chiefs missed out on “big, big opportunity”

Chiefs QB Alex Smith said it was running through his head and probably his teammates, too. What could I have done differently? What if I had done this during the week instead of this? “Big, big opportunity for us,” Alex said after the Chiefs lost to the Steelers, 18-16. The Chiefs came up short last year in the Divisional round. The lesson was that the team needed more depth and health as injuries derailed them. They also talked about homefield advantage being a key difference. “Obviously, last year, we talked about if you could get home field advantage what an advantage that is,...

Leader of Chiefs’ Special Teams Gives the Humble Punt Its Due | The New York Times What powers Kansas City's special teams, rated by Football Outsiders as the second-best unit in the N.F.L. after the Eagles', is equal parts talent, scheme and trust. It begins with the confidence Reid has in Toub, 54, his friend for more than 30 years. It enables Toub, with almost the entire roster at his disposal, to make decisions with conviction. "I wouldn't say that other ones in the past have looked over their shoulder like, ‘Is this O.K.?'" said Colquitt, in his 12th season punting for the...
