1. Chiefs' defense was supposed to be decimated by injuries; instead, it has thrived
By Sam Mellinger - The Kansas City Star
"Remember how dominating the Chiefs were on defense during last year's 9-0 start? What if you read that in some real ways, they're even better during this 6-3 start — without Johnson and defensive lineman Mike DeVito for virtually the entire season, and safety Eric Berry for most of it?
Consider this: Compared to the same point last year, the 2014 Chiefs have given up fewer passing yards, fewer rushing yards and fewer first downs.

They dominated their youth leagues in football, basketball and baseball to the point where parents asked to see their birth certificates for proof of age. " READ MORE…
5. Seahawks liked Ron Parker so much they cut him five times
By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com
