2. 3 in the Kee: Avant signing is safe, not sexy; AFC playoff chase could be nuts
By Sean Keeler - Fox Sports Kansas City
"Jason Avant can get up to speed quickly, even if his top speed isn't what it used to be. The newest Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver is a plug-and-play fallback plan, a veteran who knows what coach Andy Reid and offensive coordinator Doug Pederson like to do, someone who can hit the ground running with a new team in late November.
The former Eagles-turned-Panthers wideout signed late Friday is, in baseball parlance, more a crafty, veteran lefty out of the bullpen than an impact bat for the stretch run.

5. Otis Taylor made a couple of Odell Beckham-like catches for the Chiefs
By Randy Covtiz - The Kansas City Star
"The Giants' Odell Beckham Jr. couldn't have picked a better stage than playing in New York on Sunday Night Football for one of the most remarkable touchdown catches in NFL history.
The catch brought to mind a couple of one-handed grabs by former Chiefs wide receiver Otis Taylor, who didn't play during the era of the Internet or even cable television." READ MORE…
