1. KC enjoying long-awaited return to sports spotlight

By Jim Donaldson - Providence Journal

"This prairie city, famous for its jazz, blues, and barbecue, is in the midst of the best two days of sports it has seen in nearly three decades.

Not only did the much-beloved Chiefs, K.C.'s favorite team, play their first Monday Night Football game in noisy Arrowhead Stadium since 2011, but on Tuesday night, long-suffering Royals fans will pack Kauffman Stadium to see the local nine take on the Oakland A's in the first postseason game the franchise has played since 1985."    READ MORE…

Chiefs vs. Patriots

2. Jamaal Charles-Knile Davis rotation is effective for Chiefs

By Adam Teicher -

" Andy Reid started rattling off the things the Kansas City Chiefs did well in their Monday night thrashing of the New England Patriots and didn't really know where to stop. There were that many things the Chiefs did well in their 41-14 victory at Arrowhead Stadium.

Reid lingered a little longer in one area, and that was a pretty strong hint about his feelings. The Chiefs got 199 yards rushing, 28 more receiving, plus three touchdowns from running backs Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis, and this seemed to please Reid as much or more than anything.

And all of that might very well be true, but it's only half the story. The Kansas City Chiefs, the last highlanders standing on top of a big ol' pile of bodies Monday night, played, to a man, with something to prove. Something lasting."    READ MORE…

4. Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos has excellent outing

By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star

"Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos has had his share of struggles this season, but his performance in a 41-14 victory over the Patriots on Monday night should quiet his critics for a while.

Santos, a rookie, made two field goals, from 31 and 22 yards, and had four touchbacks on his first four kickoffs against the Patriots."    READ MORE…

5. Chiefs offense gets on a roll thanks to execution, playcalling

By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star

"In the aftermath of the Chiefs' 41-14 Monday night win over the New England Patriots, there was a palpable sense of satisfaction in the locker room. Laughs came easy, and smiles did, too.

No wonder. In a spotlight game on national television, the Chiefs had not only shown up, they had blown New England out in a dominating fashion in all three phases of the game. But perhaps nothing illustrated the thoroughness of the win like the way the Chiefs' offense, led by coach Andy Reid, fared against the Patriots' defense, led by coach Bill Belichick."    READ MORE…
