Grade Kansas City Chiefs performance vs. Denver Broncos

A? B? How do you grade the Chiefs 24-17 loss to the Broncos? Did the Kansas City Chiefs play a terrific game and nearly topple the AFC champion Denver Broncos? Or did the Broncs just have a bad game? I would say it's the latter; the Chiefs had a hell of a game against the Broncos. Despite some major adversity after losing Jamaal Charles and Eric Berry to injuries, the Chiefs kept things close and never melted down. Most teams wouldn't be able to recover after losing their best player and one of their better players but the Chiefs did. For that reason, I give the Chiefs a B+ for their...

Kevin Haskin: As Chiefs falter, Royals worth viewing

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Wideouts for the Kansas City Chiefs were slipping on their breaks, hardly in position to get open and posed no threat.

Quarterbacks in spotlight as Titans visit Chiefs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The biggest reason that Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith pressed his representatives to get a long-term contract done before the start of the regular season was simple peace of mind. “It’s all on football now,” he said. “It’s not sitting in the back of your head — ‘I’m playing for a new contract’ — as you go out on the field, week after week.” Jake Locker is about to learn all about that situation. read more

Chiefs give kicker Cairo Santos shot to fulfill father's dreams

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — David Burnett had just landed in Atlanta on a business trip when his phone buzzed with a voice mail. On the recording, breaking with emotion, was the voice of Cairo Santos. “He said he needed to talk to me,” Burnett recalled, “and it was very unusual. Normally kids don’t leave a message. They hang up and text. So I called him, and he said, ‘I don’t know how to tell you this,’ and I’m thinking something bad has happened. And then he told me.” While flying a stunt plane back home in Brazil, Santos’ father had been killed in a crash. read more

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Alex Smith didn’t have much choice when he was traded from San Francisco to Kansas City last year. He had the final say when it came to staying with the Chiefs, though.

Chiefs cut longtime kicker Ryan Succop

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Chiefs have waived veteran kicker Ryan Succop and placed quarterback Tyler Bray and wide receiver Kyle Williams on injured reserve as they trimmed to the 53-man roster limit.
