"How big is this win?

It's a big one, and it's not because of the Governor's Cup, though that's certainly a nice bonus. The Chiefs, 4-3, are in the middle of a winnable stretch of games, and with the Jets and Bills coming up, they could make some major strides toward earning a playoff berth in the next couple of weeks. The Chiefs are on a bit of a roll — they're 3-1 in their last four games — and a home loss to the Rams, who entered with a 2-4 record, would have derailed the good vibes, especially with the Royals in the World Series.

Davis delivered a big play at a crucial moment Sunday when he brought back the second half kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown. It put the Chiefs ahead by 10 points in a game they would go on to win 34-7. "    READ MORE…

"Shortly before the Chiefs lined up to receive the second-half kickoff in their 34-7 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, special-teams coach Dave Toub gathered the 11 men on the unit around him to deliver a simple but necessary message.
