Refresh/reload for latest updates
MRI tests on Broncos quarterback Peyton Mannings lower leg revealed no new structural damage, interim Broncos coach Jack Del Rio said Monday, adding Manning will definitely play Sunday when the 8-1 Broncos play host to the 9-0 Chiefs on Sunday night.
Aside from rookies carrying veterans' shoulder pads up the hill at training camp, the Chiefs have a no-hazing policy. Were not a hazing team, we dont encourage that, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Monday. Thats just not how we operate.
On the field, Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt is having one of his better statistical years, averaging 44.7 yards a punt with 26 downed within the 20-yard line for the undefeated Chiefs. Off the field, he and his wife, Christia, are set to welcome their fifth child to their family during the bye week.
As Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was turning in one of the most memorable moments of the NFL weekend, Jamaal Charles was doing his usual remarkable thing in Buffalo, on his way to accounting for about 46 percent of the Chiefs’ total yards in the team’s ninth straight victory. Both players were coached by Chiefs running backs coach Eric Bieniemy.
In the NFL, things get settled on the field, which is why quarterback Alex Smith and other Chiefs players and coaches don’t see much use in getting worked up in public by the perception that their league-leading 9-0 record is house-of-cards thin, built on a steady stream of weaker opponents and backup quarterbacks.
The last time Andy Reid came off a bye week, the upcoming game was being described as the most important of his tenure.
Everything pointed to a special day for Chiefs outside linebacker Tamba Hali on Sunday.
Call the Chiefs lucky or call them opportunistic. Certainly they were both on Sunday, and their charmed season continued with a 23-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
Alex Smith, with 258 yards in 49 attempts, is the Chiefs’ second-leading rusher, trailing only AFC rushing leader Jamaal Charles. And Smith’s 41 runs (not counting eight kneel-downs) have produced 14 first downs, or 34 percent of his carries. But there is some risk-reward to Smith’s penchant for running.
While Buffalo has a 3-5 record, the Chiefs arent taking the Bills lightly. Their front seven is one of the better ones we face, if not the best, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. They can bring it.
The NFL announced Friday that kickoff for the Chiefs game at Denver on Nov. 17 will be moved from late afternoon to 7:30 p.m. Central time for NBCs Sunday Night Football.
Former NFL player Eric Bieniemy, now the Chiefs’ running backs coach, is tough on all of his pupils — even star Jamaal Charles. But fullback Toben Opurum said no one receives the brunt of Biemiemy’s, um, attention, like rookie Knile Davis.
Once again, the Chiefs’ defense prepared for an unknown quantity at quarterback. Buffalo Bills quarterback Thad Lewis missed his second straight day of practice on Thursday because of sore ribs, and the Chiefs don’t have much game film on backups Jeff Tuel or recently acquired Matt Flynn.
Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson realizes defensive ends Tyson Jackson and Mike DeVito do a lot of the dirty work that enables him and outside linebackers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston to produce the highlight-reel plays for a defense that leads the NFL in sacks and in fewest points allowed per game. And he wants them to know it.
It’s been a rough rookie year for the Chiefs’ Eric Fisher, a 6-foot-7, 306-pound Central Michigan grad, one in which he’s been beaten plenty and learned more. “Coming out of the Mid-American Conference, it’s a whole new world,” Fisher said of his small-school roots.
The NFL trade deadline passed at 3 p.m. Tuesday, and star tight end Tony Gonzalez is still an Atlanta Falcon, despite plenty of speculation about a potential deal.
An undermanned Houston Texans team played the Chiefs to within a point. The Cleveland Browns, starting their third quarterback of the season, played the Chiefs to within a touchdown.
Those eyes, those cheeks, that walrus-like lip rug. This baby from Olathe has the title of Halloweens best costume all sewn up. A picture of a baby dressed up as Chiefs coach Andy Reid started popping up all over sports blogs Sunday and no one knew who he was until Wil Brinson, NFL writer for CBSSports.com, found out.
The Chiefs won the kind of game it takes to stay unbeaten. They are now 8-0 after escaping with a 23-17 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday in front of a quiet crowd of 74,307 that wasn’t expecting such a nerve-wracking game.
Chiefs inside linebacker Derrick Johnson made the first tackle in the game. And he made the last.
