By kcchiefs.com - kcchiefs.com

"The National Football League announced on Tuesday that four members of the Kansas City Chiefs have been selected to participate in the 2015 NFL Pro Bowl, presented by McDonald's. The below players have earned a spot on the NFL's Pro Bowl Roster. The Pro Bowl will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015. This year's all-star game features the new format adopted in 2014. The familiar AFC vs. NFC match-up that existed from 1971-2013 will no longer be in place. Instead, players were selected without regard to conference in voting by fans, coaches and players. Players will be assigned to teams during the 2015 Pro Bowl Draft on NFL Network on Wednesday, January 21 at 7 p.m. CT."    READ MORE…

2. Odds aren't great, but the Chiefs aren't out of the playoff hunt just yet

By Sam Mellinger - The Kansas City Star

"If the Chiefs do not make the playoffs, nobody will remember the events of this weekend as the reason. Nobody reasonable, anyway.

By now, you know everything that has to happen on Sunday for the Chiefs to make what would be — and this is a bad truth for a proud franchise — consecutive playoff appearances for the first time since 1995."    READ MORE…

3. Chiefs wide receivers running out of time to catch TD pass

By Dave Skretta - The Topeka Capital-Journal

"The Kansas City Chiefs seemed so determined to break one of the most bizarre streaks of this NFL season last Sunday that they pulled off an audacious field-goal fake to help them out.

The fake worked to perfection. It still didn't do any good."    READ MORE…

4. NFL Week 17 Picks: Chiefs over Chargers, Bengals upset Steelers

By John Breech - CBS Sports

"San Diego (9-6) at Kansas City (8-7), 1 p.m. ET (CBS): If Philip Rivers wasn't basically duct taped together at this point, I'd feel comfortable picking San Diego in this game. The Chargers quarterback has a bulging disk in his back, which is one place you definitely don't want to have a bulging disk. A healthy Rivers couldn't beat the Chiefs in San Diego and I don't see a banged up Rivers beating the Chiefs at Arrowhead, which is too bad because a win over Kansas City would put San Diego in the playoffs. Chiefs 23-20 over Chargers.

Atlanta (6-9) at Carolina (6-8-1), 4:25 p.m. ET (CBS): Carolina has definitely had one of the more interesting seasons in NFL history. Eleven weeks ago, they played a tie game. Two weeks ago, their quarterback was in a car crash and now, they've won three in a row, which is tied for the third longest winning streak in the NFL. The perfect cap to this wild season would be a playoff berth. Unfortunately for Carolina, I hate things that cap perfectly. Falcons 23-20 over Panthers."    READ MORE…

5. Opponent Profile: Chargers, Chiefs To Battle For Playoff Spot

By Dave Thomas - CBS Sports

"For the San Diego Chargers, nothing like going down to the final gun in order to make the 2014 playoffs.

After a wild come-from-behind 38-35 overtime win in San Francisco this past Saturday evening, the Chargers will look to lock up the final AFC playoff spot this Sunday when they travel to Arrowhead Stadium to battle division rival Kansas City."    READ MORE…
