Chiefs down seven starters to injuries, suspensions

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — By the time the Kansas City Chiefs failed to get into the end zone on fourth down, trailing by a touchdown in Denver, they weren’t just on the brink of another loss. They also were playing without seven starters — nearly a third of their offense and defense. Running back Jamaal Charles and safety Eric Berry, a pair of Pro Bowl players and arguably the most vital pieces on their respective sides of the ball, were the latest to go down. Charles left after just two carries. Berry followed him to the locker room a short while later. read more

Broncos fend off Chiefs 24-17 with goal-line stand

DENVER — Terrance Knighton batted away Alex Smith’s fourth-and-goal pass to Dwayne Bowe with 15 seconds left, preserving the Denver Broncos’ 24-17 win over the scrappy Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. The Broncos (2-0) thought they had sealed the win twice earlier on the drive. Aqib Talib’s pick-6 was negated by Quanterus Smith’s hold. Then, Nate Irving’s fumble recovery following DeMarcus Ware’s sack and strip was ruled an incomplete pass after a replay. The Chiefs (0-2) converted 11 of 16 third-down opportunities overall. read more

Charles absent from offense in Chiefs' Week 1 loss

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — In the moments after a disheartening loss to Tennessee to open the season, Chiefs coach Andy Reid seemed at a loss for why All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles went virtually unused. Charles carried the ball on the first two plays of the game, and then caught a 14-yard swing pass from quarterback Alex Smith for a first down.
