1. Chiefs-Cardinals scouting report
By The Kansas City Star - The Kansas City Star
"When the Chiefs run
EDGE >> CARDINALS
The Chiefs boast a strong rushing attack that has tailed off a bit in recent weeks. In their last game, a 29-16 loss to Denver, star running back Jamaal Charles only logged 10 carries for 35 yards, while capable backup Knile Davis didn't log a carry. Meanwhile, the Broncos snuffed out the run and won the battle up front. Look for the Cardinals to try to replicate that formula. Massive defensive end Calais Campbell (6 feet 8, 300 pounds) teams up with tackle Dan Williams (6-2, 327) to swallow up inside rushing lanes (see below), so it will be up the Chiefs' interior linemen to match their physicality."

2. Chiefs have lost their touch for takeaways
By Randy Covitz - The Kansas City Star
"Before each portion of practice, the Chiefs' defensive backs pick a magic number. It could be five, it could be 10, it could be more.
The number represents how many interceptions the secondary will snag in each practice period, depending on whether the offense is working on the running game, passing game or in the red zone." READ MORE…
3. Mailbag: Will this be a big game for Travis Kelce?
By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com
"Here is this week's edition of the Kansas City Chiefs mailbag. To ask a question for a future edition, send it to me via Twitter (@adamteicher) and tag it #ChiefsMail.
Dan P: @adamteicher Ari has trouble defending the TE position. Will this be a week where Kelce is more of a focal point of offense? #ChiefsMail
@adamteicher: It's never easy to predict what the Chiefs will do with their game plan, but you are right that the Cardinals have given up some passes to tight ends this year. Opposing passers have a 116 passer rating when throwing to a tight end and complete 77 percent of those passes. So it could be a big game for Travis Kelce and perhaps Anthony Fasano. The Chiefs would like to utilize those three-tight end formations they were so successful with early in the season. They might be able to get back to them Sunday after signing veteran Richard Gordon." READ MORE…

5. Not big enough? John Brown's journey from Pitt State to the NFL proves otherwise
By Sam Mellinger - The Kansas City Star
"John Brown isn't supposed to be here. Not in the NFL. Certainly not as a rising star, a man who one year ago was catching passes for Pittsburg State and is now part of a deep group of talented rookie wide receivers helping push America's favorite sport faster and faster every week.
He was supposed to stop long ago, and this isn't just about growing up in the sad urban cliché of violence in South Florida — though we'll get to that part. No, this is about something much more direct, something much more about him than anyone else." READ MORE…
