1. Chiefs developing to Andy Reid's liking
By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com
"Five games into the season, the Kansas City Chiefs have developed their personality, one that includes a trait Andy Reid said he didn't quite expect.
"They've got a certain toughness about them, which I like," Reid said. "That's a tough thing to coach, that toughness thing. Until you are in the fight of playing the game, you don't exactly know that part of it and you have to experience that. I would tell you that there is some grit to this team and some of the fundamentals and techniques we've got to get corrected here, but that grit, that's a tough thing to coach, that's a tough thing to coach.

"Linebacker Nico Johnson never imagined he'd go from the Chiefs' fourth-round pick to the waiver wire only a year later.
But come late August, around the time of the NFL's final cutdown day, that was exactly the situation he found himself in.

The Chiefs have some numbers to suggest they should be even higher in the rankings. They have, to date, played one of the most difficult schedules in the NFL.

By Larry Hartstain - CBS Sports
"Chargers starting cornerback Brandon Flowers, who suffered a groin injury in the win over the Raiders, could miss Sunday's game against his former team, the Chiefs, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune. The injury is considered "not too bad" but enough to put Flowers' status in question, the paper said.
