By Adam Teicher -

"The Kansas City Chiefs won for the sixth time in seven games on Sunday by beating the Buffalo Bills, 17-13, at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Here's our weekly look at the Chiefs' place in the AFC playoff picture.

Where the Chiefs stand: They are 6-3 and in second place in the AFC West, one game behind the 7-2 Denver Broncos. They are the only AFC team that is 6-3 and not in first place in its division. The other division leaders are New England (7-2), Cleveland (6-3) and Indianapolis (6-3). "    READ MORE…

2. Jamaal Charles' Chiefs find moxie as AFC playoff race heats up

By Judy Battista -

"When the Kansas City Chiefs completed their first comeback this season from a double-digit deficit to beat the Buffalo Bills 17-13 Sunday, running back Jamaal Charles was thinking about Indianapolis. The Colts were the opponent that, in the playoffs last season, exposed the Chiefs' inability to close out a game, roaring back to erase Kansas City's 28-point third-quarter lead and eliminate the Chiefs from the postseason.

"This felt like a playoff game," Charles said, referring to Sunday's triumph. "Last year against the Colts, we didn't finish. This could have been a big blowout; they came out really fast.

4. Chiefs are being rewarded for their good work with Ron Parker

By Adam Teicher -

"One sign a coaching staff doing its job shows when a team develops a player no one else wants. That appears to be what's happening in the case of the Kansas City Chiefs and defensive back Ron Parker.

Parker, by my count, was released eight times by three different teams before joining the Chiefs off waivers, of course, from the Seattle Seahawks last year. But he wouldn't give up on himself."    READ MORE…

5. Chiefs get win but lose Demetrius Harris, Cyrus Gray to injuries

By Kathleen Gier - The Kansas City Star

"The pregame loss of tight end Demetrius Harris, who fractured his foot during warm-ups, put the Chiefs at an early disadvantage against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. However, coach Andy Reid seems to have already found a replacement to fit into his three-tight-end formations during Harris' absence.

The Chiefs were accustomed to using Harris as the third man in those formations, and he had caught three passes for 20 yards this season. Fullback Anthony Sherman stepped into his place and did not have a catch but was targeted twice in the game. "    READ MORE…
