1. Are the Kansas City Chiefs preparing to make a run at signing Darrelle Revis?

By Tim Weaver - Cover 32

"The Kansas City Chiefs beat both the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots this season, but they'll have to watch the Super Bowl at home just like the rest of us.

How do the Chiefs make a push towards becoming a legitimate Super Bowl contender? Signing away talent from the Seahawks and Patriots seems like a good place to start. According to a report by Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, New England cornerback Darrelle Revis might draw interest from several teams, including the Chiefs if he can't hammer out a deal with the Pats."    READ MORE…

2. Former Chiefs Lineman Will Shields Up For Fourth Time As Hall Finalist

3. Patriots, Seahawks chiefly gained their Super Bowl mojo after loss to KC

By Jack Magruder - Fox Sports

"Like the upstart Kansas City Royals, who made it to the 2014 World Series, the Chiefs showed signs of being big-game-worthy. They blew out New England 41-14 and held off Seattle seven weeks later to become the only team to beat both Super Bowl contenders. Alas, the Chiefs were only 7-7 against the rest of the league and failed to make the playoffs.

The Chiefs' thrashing of New England before a national Monday Night Football audience on Sept. 29 even gave rise to the short-lived notion that he statute of limitations on Tom Brady's invincibility had run out at age 37.

4. A good decision not to re-sign: Jon Asamoah?

By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com

"The Kansas City Chiefs saw seven regulars depart as free agents last year and released an eighth. Here we're continuing a series looking back at each of those decisions and rendering a verdict whether the Chiefs made the right decision in letting the player walk.

Asamoah lost his starting job midway through his final season with the Chiefs to Geoff Schwartz, but he was still a productive player in Kansas City. Even though he was on the bench for most of the last half of that season, Asamoah still received an impressive free-agent contract (five years, $22.5 million) from the Atlanta Falcons. Scott Pioli, the Chiefs' general manager in 2010 when they drafted Asamoah in the third round, is now the assistant GM in Atlanta."    READ MORE…

5. How the Super Bowl got its name

By Rowena Lindsey - The Christian Science Monitor

"While it is now one of the biggest sports events of the year, the Super Bowl originally got its name from a simple children's toy.

Coined by Lamar Hunt, the Kansas City Chiefs owner, in 1966, the Super Bowl was named after the Super Ball a bouncy ball which was one of the most popular toys in America in the mid-1960s."    READ MORE…
