1. Andy Reid: Tough schedule helping Chiefs develop
By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com
"Coach Andy Reid shared some interesting thoughts in a guest appearance on ESPN's "Mike and Mike" Monday on how the 3-3 Kansas City Chiefs have developed this season. Reid suggested the Chiefs' difficult schedule was responsible for their rapid development.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid comments on his team's win over the Chargers, Cairo Santos' game-winning field goal, Kansas City's development and Peyton Manning's career. "We've had a great schedule,'' Reid said. "We've got to play some really good football teams. We've got the Rams coming up. They had a huge win yesterday. Jeff [Fisher] has that group rolling there.

2. Chiefs' successful late drive against Chargers offers proof of progress
By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star
"In two of the Chiefs' three losses this season, they had the ball late on the road with a chance to win. A drive against Denver ended with a no-chance incompletion, and a drive against San Francisco ended with an interception.
So when the Chiefs got the ball back Sunday with the score tied 20-20 and 1 minute and 57 seconds left against the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium, it would have been hard to blame anyone who has seen this team on a regular basis for doubting whether they could get the job done. " READ MORE…
3. Cairo Santos vindicates himself, Chiefs with winning kick
By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com
"Rookie kicker Cairo Santos didn't just vindicate himself by making a 48-yard field goal in the final seconds to lift the Kansas City Chiefs to a 23-20 win over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.
He also rewarded the Chiefs for their belief in him. The Chiefs decision to keep Santos, who was undrafted, instead of veteran Ryan Succop looked like a mistake early in the season. Santos missed two of his first four field goal attempts while Succop, now with the Tennessee Titans, made all four of his in his new team's season-opening win over the Chiefs. " READ MORE…
4. Jamaal Charles secures record while focusing team goal
By Martin Rogers - USA Today
"Suggest to Jamaal Charles that he is the best running back in the National Football League and he responds with a shy smile that indicates he might believe it is true, before going all humble pie with some platitude about it being "all about the team."
In reality, Charles' team – the Kansas City Chiefs – is all about him, or at least built around him, as it seeks to continue to revive from a sluggish start to the season and muscle into the AFC playoff picture." READ MORE…

By Randy Covitz - The Kansas City Star
"Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe began Sunday's game going against former Kansas City cornerback Brandon Flowers, who ended up leaving the game at halftime because of a concussion.
Bowe finished the game with five receptions for a season-most 84 yards, and his 62 receptions against the Chargers are the most he's had against any team, topping the 61 catches he's made against Denver. " READ MORE…
