Browns’ defensive front gets to Smith

On a day in which he was sacked a season-high six times and hit a season-high nine times, one might think Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith would affirm the suggestion that the experience was similar to one opposing quarterbacks have often had at Arrowhead Stadium this season.

For some Chiefs fans, the game is about hope

“Today is Red Friday, which means I wear my Nigerian Nightmare t-shirt because, you know, I have a routine that I have to follow. A routine for the week. And I’ve got this new Alex Smith jersey that I’m really proud of — I always try to get the newest Chiefs’ jersey — and I’ve been wearing that on game days, but that’s not entirely the whole routine. I have to wear a white shirt under the red jersey. I wear the same pair of jeans. I wear red shoes and a white watch. And a red-and-white Kansas City Royals hat with a pink ribbon. And I know how crazy it sounds but I feel like they win because of me. Because of that routine.”

Chiefs’ Andy Reid stays up late watching Raiders

Chiefs coach Andy Reid couldn’t resist. A few hours after Reid arrived home from the Chiefs’ win at Tennessee, he grabbed the remote control for a late, late night of television viewing.

Kansas City keeps Titans' star runner Chris Johnson in check

Chris Johnson is used to running with a target on his back. Even still, the Tennessee Titans’ star runner — who has rushed for over 1,000 in each of his first five seasons — often finds a way to get his rushing yards.

Chiefs aware of Titans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick’s past success against them

In the NFL, defenses treat backup quarterbacks the way kids often treat substitute teachers. There’s often a certain amount of excitement — oh, so-and-so is starting? Time to pad my stats! — that borders on disrespect, depending on the quarterback.
