With the Chiefs out, Pederson set to become Eagles coach

He held a play sheet in his left hand while walking among players just minutes after the Kansas City Chiefs' 27-20 loss to the New England Patriots.

Chiefs squander opportunities in playoff loss

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — An NFL game is full of ebbs and flows when teams capitalize on opportunities or regret missed chances. The Chiefs could spend some time during the offseason with the latter, especially with a series that contributed to turning the game in favor of New England. Down 7-3 early in the second quarter, Chiefs punt returner Frankie Hammond Jr. fielded a punt at his own 43-yard line before returning it 19 yards to the Patriots’ 36. read more

Patriots-Chiefs a showcase for tight ends Gronkowski, Kelce

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Travis Kelce has always been competitive, whether it was on the playground as a kid, the Cleveland Heights football field in high school, or inside Nippert Stadium at the University of Cincinnati.

And on Saturday, he’ll have his biggest platform yet to state his case when the Chiefs visit the New England Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs. read more

Opportunistic Chiefs rallying behind drastic improvement in one key category

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs had six interceptions all of last season. They nearly had that many in their 30-0 romp over the Houston Texans on Saturday. Of all the reasons why the Chiefs have won 11 straight games, and ended a 22-year streak without a playoff win, their ability to create turnovers may be the biggest.
