1. Chiefs' Reid remembers a late-season miracle in Philly to make the playoffs

By Jeffrey Flanagan - Fox Sports

"As grim as the Chiefs' playoff odds seem to be, coach Andy Reid has been in this situation before when he was coaching the Eagles.

"I don't remember the year -- there are too many of them -- but it was in Philadelphia and we needed someone to lose against a pretty good team in the last game and it happened," Reid said Monday.

2. Keeler: Justin Houston is Chiefs' MVP of 2014

"If chaos was art, Justin Houston would be its Monet.

Or if somebody told you (to coin a documentary promo) the Chiefs (8-7) would basically be without Derrick Johnson, Mike DeVito and Eric Berry for most of 2014 and yet still could finish with a winning record, you'd probably have snatched that one up, too."    READ MORE…

5. Kansas City Chiefs – TeamReport

By Thomas Reuters - Global Post

"Jamaal Charles took the handoff and banged into the middle of the line. The Steelers banged back, first by linebacker Lawrence Timmons, who stopped Charles' progress and then safety Will Allen came up and finished off the play, keeping Charles from falling forward for the first down.

"A touchdown; that's what we were trying to do," said Reid. "Hindsight, you say we probably should have kicked it but I knew a couple things there and I felt like we had a lot on the game sheet.""    READ MORE…
