Chiefs’ Dunta Robinson sees room to improve but happy to be back on field

Since going to the bench in October for rookie cornerback Marcus Cooper, it had been a little over two months since veteran cornerback Dunta Robinson saw as much meaningful action as he did against the Colts. And while the loss Sunday clearly irked him, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Robinson did a nice job as he logged 41 plays in his return to the starting nickel position.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid is up to the challenge when disputing officials’ calls

Whatever system Chiefs coach Andy Reid has used when deciding to make challenges, it’s hard to argue with the results, even if some players admit they don’t necessarily know all the ins and outs of what all goes into Reid’s challenge decisions. Reid’s record with challenges this season has also helped him earn the trust of his players.

Chiefs’ Reid to ‘mix and match’ players against Chargers

Tthe Chiefs, 11-4, likely will approach this Sunday’s game against San Diego, 8-7, much like coach Andy Reid did four times in Philadelphia when his Eagles’ teams were locked into playoff positions going into a final week, the same way most teams approach a final preseason game.

Chiefs fall flat in 23-7 loss to likely playoff opponent Indianapolis

The Chiefs played their way Sunday into the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs. By coming up flat in a 23-7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, the Chiefs, 11-4, are assured of opening the playoffs on the road on the weekend of Jan. 4 and 5. And it appears that game will be a rematch with the Colts in Indianapolis.

Chiefs teammates say running back Jamaal Charles is one tough MVP candidate

Jamaal Charles leads in the Chiefs in rushing, catches and receiving yards, and is just three receiving touchdowns short of becoming the first player in NFL history to record 10 rushing and 10 receiving touchdowns in the same season. Charles’ monster day against Oakland not only earned him AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors, it also thrust him into the discussion as a candidate for NFL Most Valuable Player or Offensive Player of Year.

Jamaal Charles can thank his line, and coaching staff, for sticking with the screen

Oakland proved unable to stop the Chiefs’ screen-pass plays on Sunday, so Jamaal Charles and company kept right on running them ... and running them, and running them, and running them.

It's no coincidence that all four of the Chiefs' interceptions came by reading Matt McGloin's eyes. “Oh, I was reading them,” said safety Eric Berry, who racked up two interceptions, including his second pick-6 of the season. Berry added that they watched a lot of film on McGloin throughout the week, and that “it paid off.”
