The Chicago Bears square off against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 5 of the 2015 season. We've got all you need to know inside, including TV maps, streaming info, and more. The Chicago Bears have completed their first quarter of the 2015 season, and closed out with a good win against the Oakland Raiders. Their next win will be tough to come by against a Chiefs team with a chip on their shoulder, and it will be played in a very loud Arrowhead Stadium to boot. Here's everything you need to know about the game: Game Time: Sunday, October 11th, 2015 | 12:00pm CT Location: Arrowhead Stadium |...

Chiefs' Alex Smith is the sixth leading passer in the NFL

Editor's Note: Compete against Arrowhead Pride members in our week 5 fantasy football league. First place wins $100 and the top 20 win cash on Sunday. JOIN NOW! A month into the season and as we all expected Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith is averaging 277 passing yards per game, which is good for sixth in the NFL. Wait, what?? Yeah, it's crazy that we can say that even if we are only a quarter of the way through the season. Alex has thrown for two fewer yards than New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (who has only played three games). This, however, is not a good thing. When Alex is ranked...

Kansas City Chiefs stock up, stock down through four games

A look at what elements of the Chiefs are trending in right (and wrong) direction, using some stock market terminology Stock Up Jeremy Maclin: Maclin has done his part to ignite the passing game, scoring a WR TD to shut down one annoying stat, and putting up some big gains that would lead box-score analysts to believe the Chiefs are throwing the ball well. Maclin is your classic "Growth" stock, with momentum on his side. The risk is that the numbers are fudged (meaning he's picked up some garbage time stats) ... we need to see him consistently involved in the game plan early and often for...

The Kansas City Chiefs offensive line is ranked higher than you think, according to Pro Football Focus

The Kansas City Chiefs offensive line is either much better than we thought or the rest of the NFL's offensive lines are much, much worse than I thought. That's the takeaway after reading this Pro Football Focus article which ranks the Chiefs offensive line 10th in the NFL. PFF has the Chiefs ranked 21st in pass blocking and third in run blocking. 10th overall! I watched Eric Fisher in my Chiefs re-watch the past couple of weeks and wrote this week that he had another solid game against the Bengals. I received a couple of emails from fans who were, uh, less than pleased with me saying that...

NFL mock draft 2015: Kansas City Chiefs address OT to no one's surprise

It's never too early for the NFL Draft! Actually, yes it is. This is too early right now because the season is going on. However, there are plenty of NFL fans are really just draft fans and SB Nation's Dan Kadar released a mock draft this week. So, today, we talk draft. The Chiefs have the 17th pick in Kadar's mock draft. That make them an average team in the NFL which seems better than the 1-3 talk we've been hearing this week. Dan has the Chiefs selecting Michigan State OT Jack Conklin in the first round. Eric Fisher has officially entered bust territory, so unfortunately the Chiefs...

Kansas City Chiefs are seeing fewer names on the injury report

The Kansas City Chiefs are trimming down the number of players on their injury report. After they got up to 11 players on the injury report a month ago, the Chiefs now have just four players listed. LB Josh Mauga did not practice with a groin / Achilles injury. He came out of last week's game and was replaced by rookie LB Ramik Wilson. I imagine Wilson would be better with a full week of practice. He can competently replace Mauga if the Chiefs veteran can't go. WR Albert Wilson missed last week's game and continues to be limited in practice with a shoulder injury. I'm not quite sure exactly...

How many games will Kansas City Chiefs win in second quarter of the season?

The Kansas City Chiefs are slowly getting worse in the first quarter of the season. Two years ago, they were 4-0 in the first four games. Last year, they were 2-2 in the first four games. And this year, they are 1-3 after four games. KC Chiefs fans hope that the team is better in the second quarter of the season. Andy Reid and the Chiefs were 4-0 in the second quarter of their season in 2013. They were 3-1 in the second quarter of the season last year. And now this year, here's how the Chiefs second quarter of the season shakes out: vs. Bears at Vikings vs. Steelers vs. Lions (London) How...

The Kansas City Chiefs should run more plays out of shotgun

Football is a complicated sport. Allow me to assure you that we, the fans, understand a bare fraction of what is happening out there on the field. I've been privileged enough to speak with a few people who have been a part of and observed coaches game planning their offense. They all say the same thing; the amount of nuance in every play call is absolutely mind boggling and fans know about one percent of what's going on. I get that very much, and I respect the fact that there's more to football than "if you just do this, the offense will be better." That said, the Chiefs should be in...

Seven FGs not enough for Chiefs kicker to win special teams player of the week

You would think a franchise record seven field goals - one off from the NFL record - would be enough to secure the AFC's special teams player of the week award. You thought wrong. The Kansas City Chiefs' Cairo Santos was not the Week 4 special teams player of the week despite his seven field goals, including two from 50-plus yards out. The honor went to Ravens kicker Justin Tucker. Justin Tucker has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week: http://t.co/rKXKdN1aJr #InTuckerWeTrust pic.twitter.com/IhQwGpdc6R — Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) October 7, 2015 Tucker hit three field...

Royals 2015 playoff schedule could affect your Chiefs game-watching

The Kansas City Chiefs AND Kansas City Royals will be playing on Sunday afternoon. And the timing is going to be very tight in order to see both games. The Chiefs will play the Bears at 12 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) which means their game should end somewhere around 3 p.m. Just a few minutes after 3 p.m., the Royals will be visiting the Astros in Houston for Game 3 of the ALDS. The official game time is 3:10 p.m. (Kauffman Time). This is not ideal for those of you who are going to the Chiefs game. I imagine it will have a small affect on attendance at Arrowhead given that the Chiefs are 1-3, the...

Grading Andy Reid: Week 4, Chiefs vs. Bengals

Well, here we go again. Week 4 happened. The Kansas City Chiefs are 1 - 3. All of our worst nightmares are upon us. Regardless of how several Chiefs fans feel, I am still optimistic for this season. (In fact, I still think the Chiefs can still win a playoff game this year ... but I digress.) As far as Week 4 against the Bengals is concerned, things got a little weird. Years from now we will bring up the "seven field goal game" and ponder on its weirdness. Before we talk about Week 4 let's talk about some changes we've made to the grading scale. The new scale looks as such: Grading Criteria...

Good morning! Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news from across the internet. Enjoy! Andy Reid and Travis Kelce Agree; Chiefs Plan Moving Forward is Simple from The Mothership It's going to take work. It's really that simple for one very easy and straightforward reason—the pieces needed to get back on track are already in place. "There's a tremendous amount of urgency in our building to get this thing right," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said on "Kingdom Live" with the "Voice of the Chiefs," Mitch Holthus, on Monday night.

Week 4 Bengals vs Chiefs: Pro Football Focus grades and analysis

How did our friends at Pro Football Focus grade the Bengals in their 36-21 win over the Kansas City Chiefs? We take a look at their data and break it down for you. Four weeks into the season, and the Bengals have already acquired four wins. This week, the win came against a Kansas City Chiefs team that looked absolutely helpless against the Bengals' stellar quarterback play and high-pressure defensive line. The Bengals saw some great play from a lot of familiar faces, but also some less expected players, the best of which were Andy Dalton (+4.2), Geno Atkins (+2.3), Emmanuel Lamur (+2.0),...

Week 4 Chiefs vs Bengals: Most Valuable Player

We take a look at the Cincinnati Bengals' best individual performances in their 36-21 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Cast your vote and sound off in the comments on your selection! When they secured their fourth win of the season, the Cincinnati Bengals became just one of six remaining unbeaten teams. At this time last year, the team went head-first into a New England buzzsaw on the national stage, but the script was different this time around against the Kansas City Chiefs. Let's run down an extensive list of MVP nominees for the Bengals in their 36-21 win over the Chiefs. Cast your vote...

Mohamed Sanu answers call vs Chiefs as Bengals WRs take turns stepping up

The Bengals continue to use a balanced passing game to shred opposing defenses. The Bengals offense looks as efficient as it's been since the 2005 team lit the world on fire. That's exactly what this year's squad is doing while scoring 30.3 points per game, the fourth-highest rate of any team. They also rank No. 1 in total offense, No. 4 in passing offense, No. 3 in passing scores (9), and are tied for No. 1 in sacks allowed (2). That's a ridiculous level of production, and what makes it special is that it's due in part to a talented crop of pass-catchers stepping up from game-to-game. In...

Revisiting 5 keys to Bengals' victory over Chiefs

Last week I posted the five things the Bengals needed to do (or avoid) to come away with a win against Kansas City. Now we're going back to see how accurate those keys were and if the Bengals accomplished them. The Bengals defeated the Kansas City Chiefs at home by a final score of 36-21. The game could have been much closer if the Chiefs could have found a way to put the ball in the end zone. Instead, they settled for seven field goals, the most field goals the Bengals have ever had committed against them. 1) Pressure Alex Smith If you look at the stat line, Alex Smith seemed to have a...

NFL power rankings 2015: Kansas City Chiefs defense blames for tumbling in the rankings

It's time for our weekly look at the 2015 NFL power rankings for Week 5. The Kansas City Chiefs are dropping after losing their third straight game. Many of these power rankings had the Chiefs as a top 10 team at the beginning of the season. They moved up after their Week 1 win against the Houston Texans. After losses to the Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers and Cincinnati Bengals, the Chiefs are tumbling into the teens and 20s in these power rankings. Here's what everyone is saying about the Chiefs: SB Nation: 17 The Bills and Chiefs were a few of my early season favorites, but both...

Maybe the Kansas City Chiefs just aren't that good

I want you to take a deep breath. Then I want you to let it out. Then take another one, and let it out. Now another. Now sit down, because odds are if you're as out of shape as I am you're about to pass out. Anyway, now that we got that out of the way, I want to do something cathartic for you. You see that title? The title that made you kinda mad at me (or maybe made you want to tell me "I told you so")? I want you to find a mirror, or perhaps a very reflective window, or maybe even a very still lake in a mountainside clearing (this last one is preferable to get the desired Zen we're going...

This four-year old quote seems relevant to today's Kansas City Chiefs

Two of the Kansas City Chiefs biggest problems this year are third downs and red zone efficiency, particularly after last week's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals where the Chiefs kicked seven field goals and scored no touchdowns. A user on the Chiefs subreddit linked a 2011 piece from the Press Democrat that included a quote from Steve Young talking about Alex Smith and those 49ers. The problems talked about in the piece sound familiar. Very familiar. Here's what Young said about Alex Smith and the 49ers in 2011. Read the full piece here for context. "I learned a lot from watching Brett...
