Chiefs’ Andy Reid not in a big hurry to rush Justin Houston back

If you’ve been paying attention to the Kansas City Chiefs and how they deal with injuries then you’re probably preparing yourself to be patient with Justin Houston. Because that’s what the Chiefs will do with him. Houston isn’t expected to play this weekend against the Colts. Chiefs coach Andy Reid was asked about this week what he needs to see out of Houston in order for him to play and his answer seemed to suggest to me that it’ll probably be longer than we think. “I think we’ll know once we see him back in the flow, and change in direction and doing all of those things that...

Chiefs rookie Chris Jones isn’t a secret to the Colts anymore

Just as special teams coaches around the league quickly became familiar with Tyreek Hill, offensive coaches are starting to notice Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones. The Chiefs 2016 second round pick started his first game last week and Colts coach Chuck Pagano was among those who thought Jones stood out on tape. Via Matt Derrick of Chiefs Digest: Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano took notice of the 6-foot-6-inch, 308-pound powerful and athletic defensive lineman causing disruption along the line of scrimmage while the Kansas City Chiefs defense prowled the field. “Everybody’s...

Arrowheadlines: Avoiding Marcus Peters, Alex-to-Tyreek, Chiefs-Colts news

Chiefs hope Alex-to-Tyreek blossoms into an effective deep-ball combo | The KC Star "Yeah, I've made the catch before," Hill said afterward. "It wasn't a surprise to me or anyone on the team. ... Alex and I have been working together a lot, and it's working out." That's right. Because throughout organized-team activities in May and June, and training camp in August, Smith and Hill routinely connected on deep balls. Smith, who is famously risk-averse, does not attempt dangerous throws unless he feels the odds are in his favor. Downfield throws can qualify as dangerous, but the frequency...

Avoiding Marcus Peters? That’s a respect thing, Chiefs coach Andy Reid says

The New Orleans Saints are quarterbacked by a guy who will probably be in Canton one day which is why it was so surprising to see Drew Brees avoid Marcus Peters for much of the day. Peters does have a ton of picks in his short career but we haven’t seen him get the shutdown corner treatment like this, let alone from a quarterback as good as Brees. For Chiefs coach Andy Reid, that’s them showing respect for Peters and his abilities. “I mean that’s a respect thing for Marcus,” Reid said via quotes from the Chiefs. “That doesn’t mean you can let down, obviously. I remember with...

Travis Kelce mic’d up reveals what players really talk about on the sidelines

Chiefs Stock Report: Chiefs Beat Saints

Stock up The Arrowhead experience It had been a long time. I arrived at 9 a.m., tailgated, said hi to Joel and Clark Hunt (not at the same time), walked around the Chiefs Hall of Fame, ate some BBQ, drank some Boulevard beer, yelled until I lost my voice in the loudest stadium on the planet, went for more BBQ after the game (Q39 is awesome) where I met eight Chiefs players relaxing after a good win. That’s what it’s all about. Arrowhead is back ... not that it was ever gone but the team playing winning football had the crowd rocking and in turn the opponents struggled with false start...

Chiefs lose DJ White for the Colts game

The Kansas City Chiefs might be getting another corner back this week in Phillip Gaines but they’re losing another. The Chiefs say that rookie corner DJ White will not play in Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts due to a fractured hand. Mitch Schwartz has an ankle sprain and won't practice. DJ White fractured his hand in the game and had surgery. He won't play on Sunday.— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) October 26, 2016 He played 59 snaps last week against the Saints so this is like losing a starter. The Chiefs are already young and inexperienced in the secondary but they...

I can’t stop watching Chris Conley’s catch on 3rd and 17

The play of the game for the Kansas City Chiefs in their win over the New Orleans Saints was either Tyreek Hill’s 38-yard touchdown catch or Daniel Sorensen’s 48-yard interception return for a touchdown. Another play we need to recognize is Chris Conley’s 18-yard catch on third and 17 in the fourth quarter. This kept the Chiefs drive alive with a little less than seven minutes left on the clock and it allowed the Chiefs to drive more time off the clock. The play is a thing is of beauty. If you’ve been watching the Chiefs for a while you know this is not something they regularly do....

Another angle on Alex Smith missing Jeremy Maclin deep

In the Kansas City Chiefs win over the New Orleans Saints there was one play where it looked like Alex Smith completely missed Jeremy Maclin wide open down the field. I think most of you who saw the game remember this play. Check it out and note Maclin in the top right: I don't care what the score of this football game is. I don't want Alex Smith as my QB. pic.twitter.com/yMoumkV7Ir— Clay Wendler (@ClayWendler) October 23, 2016 Maclin was visibly frustrated after that play as I was watching the game live. Looking at the replays, I could see why. It looked like Alex completely missed...

Arrowheadlines: Do you fear the Chiefs or Broncos?

Chiefs CB DJ White has answers to passes thrown his way | The KC Star "Any time I'm in the game I know they're coming my way," White said. "A rookie corner? You know where the ball is going. I know it, I expect it." Mellinger Minutes: Chiefs throw deep, Royals may (not) spend, Mizzou stunk, and Team Peters | The KC Star This may be too forgiving, or too soft, but I want to hold back judgment on the defense until we see what it looks like with Houston. I'll keep saying this — he will be the best midseason acquisition of any team in the NFL. The Chiefs have other things to clean up —...

LaDainian Tomlinson says Chiefs are most likely to come out of the AFC West

LaDainian Tomlinson said on NFL Network Sunday night that he thinks the KC Chiefs are going to come out of the AFC West. “I think this is the most complete team in that division,” LT said. “When it’s all said and done, I think they’re going to be the ones to come out of it.” He’s not wrong. The Chiefs are probably the most balanced team in the division. The Broncos defense is elite but they have something called a Trevor Siemian or something else called a Paxton Lynch starting for them. The Raiders have one of the best offenses in the league and one of the worst defenses....

Chiefs are once again road favorites vs. Colts

The Vegas love continues for the Kansas City Chiefs, who are road favorites over the Indianapolis Colts this weekend. The line opened with the Chiefs as a 2.5-point favorite and it has stayed there. One outlet has the Chiefs as a 3-point favorite if you’re wondering which way this line is trending. The Chiefs are 7th in SB Nation’s latest power rankings while the Colts are 26th. I don’t really care about that because if you’re a Chiefs fan, this game should freak you out a little bit. The Colts killed the Chiefs with Peyton Manning and now that he’s gone there’s Andrew Luck and...

NFL power rankings: The Chiefs are ahead of the Raiders

Week 8 NFL power rankings are here. The Kansas City Chiefs are at the bottom of the top 10 in most cases. They have some easier games (no jinx) coming up so they may not climb too high until they can beat perhaps a Denver or an Atlanta next month. The Chiefs are regularly ahead of the Raiders despite Oakland holding onto first place in the AFC West. The Chiefs beat Oakland two weeks ago. Here they are... SB Nation: 7 Last week: 8 ESPN: 9 The Chiefs continue to find ways to win but does anyone fear them? They have a 4-2 record and the fourth-best turnover differential but only a plus-13...

Is Dee Ford’s improvement real or imagined?

Dee Ford has become something of a lightning rod for controversy around here. Which isn’t all that surprising, as roughly 17 different players on the Chiefs are lightning rods for controversy around here. That said, with Ford it’s been particularly difficult. The 2014 first round pick remains as much of a mystery as ever, generally underperforming compared to fans’ expectations, but then occasionally flashing an impact game as a pass rusher (or occasionally even in coverage) that leaves us all wondering “what if he’s finally putting it all together?” Ford had just such a game...

Saints player thought there was some home cookin’, Chiefs would disagree

One of the biggest plays in Sunday’s win over the New Orleans Saints was Alex Smith’s 18-yard pass to Chris Conley on third and 17. It was a huge play to extend the drive and eventually help give the Kansas City Chiefs a victory. The play was reviewed and upheld as a catch by the refs. One Saints player thought there was some home cookin’ with the call. "I kind of seen his foot was on the white line," Saints rookie cornerback Ken Crawley said as quoted by old friend Herbie Teope. "I mean, they're at their house, so most likely they're going to get all the calls." The Chiefs of course...

Chiefs top graded players vs. Saints might surprise you

If I told you that Pro Football Focus had Chiefs safety Daniel Sorensen as the highest graded Chief on the defensive side of the ball, you would believe me. Sorensen had a pick returned for a touchdown along with a sack of Drew Brees. It was a good day for Dirty Dan. If I told you that inside linebacker Ramik Wilson was the second highest graded defensive Chief, you probably would be surprised. He was very productive with eight tackles in 28 snaps (snap counts via the NFL). The eye test told Andy Reid that Ramik, who was brought up from the practice squad this week, was slow starting but...

Arrowheadlines: Justin Houston's status, Alex Smith's perfect QB rating, Chiefs playing it safe

Tuesday's KC Chiefs news Chiefs coach Andy Reid says Justin Houston 'probably' won't play on Sunday | The Kansas City Star "We’ll just keep practicing him — we’ll see how he does," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said of Houston, who returned to practice last week after spending the first six weeks of the season on the physically-unable-to-perform list. "He’s not there yet, but he did look good last week. We’ll take it day-by-day and see how he does." What We Learned from Andy Reid's Press Conference | Chiefs.com Q: What about Phillip Gaines?

Monday Night Football open thread

The Texans and Broncos. I can’t believe we’ll have to root for one of these teams. Clearly, Chiefs fans are Texans fans tonight The Broncos are 4-2 and with a loss Denver would be in third place with the 4-2 Chiefs in second place. This is your open thread.

This Chiefs fan got down on one knee and proposed in the front row at Arrowhead

A Facebook reader sent us a video with the message, “Got engaged today.” I watched the video and it’s accurate. He really did get engaged. This takes place in the front row at Arrowhead last Sunday. The future groom has his camera on and gives it to a fan behind him. He then walks up to the future bride, gets down on one knee and pops the question.
