2. Chiefs Play It Safe, and Haven't Been Sorry Since Week 1

By Chase Stuart - New York Times

"It was the most surprising result of the season. We just didn't know it at the time.

In the summer, Las Vegas oddsmakers pegged the Kansas City Chiefs for eight wins this season.

After the loss, ESPN justifiably dropped Kansas City to 26th in its power rankings."    READ MORE…

In 269 combined run snaps, defensive ends Allen Bailey and Jaye Howard have yet to miss a stop. PFF credits inside linebacker Josh Mauga with just two missed rush tackles on 198 running snaps, and defensive partner James-Michael Johnson with just one miss of a receiver tackle in 148 passing snaps."    READ MORE…

5. Chiefs one of hottest teams in NFL

By Dave Skretta - Springfield News-Leader

"After getting trounced by Tennessee in the season opener, the Kansas City Chiefs returned to their practice facility the following day and went through the game film in all its gory detail.

They saw the missed blocks and tackles. They lamented the missed opportunities. They watched as defensive starters Derrick Johnson and Mike DeVito went down with season-ending injuries."    READ MORE…
