1. Power Rankings: No. 19 Kansas City Chiefs
By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com
"For losing on the road last week to the San Francisco 49ers, the Kansas City Chiefs dropped five spots to No. 19 in this week's ESPN NFL Power Rankings.
That's harsh treatment. The Chiefs were ahead for a good portion of the game, including at the start of the fourth quarter. They had a chance to win until Alex Smith's final pass was intercepted with about two minutes remaining. And this against the 49ers, a team ranked seventh. " READ MORE…

4. On the doorstep of history, Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles keeps his eyes on the prize
By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star
"Jamaal Charles sat in front of a mostly-empty locker last Sunday at Levi's Stadium, completely silent, his back to the reporters who had come to interview him. He had accomplished a great feat on this day, but you wouldn't have been able to tell by his sullen demeanor and slow movements.
His team had lost 22-17 to the San Francisco 49ers, and Charles didn't much feel like celebrating, although his 15 carry, 80-yard effort was enough to catapult him past Larry Johnson for No. 2 on the Chiefs' all-time rushing list. " READ MORE…
