Chiefs suffer heartbreaking, last-second loss to Chargers (12/14/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Philip Rivers and the Chargers finally beat the Kansas City Chiefs. All it took was feverish fourth-quarter comeback, a questionable pass-interference call, a tense video review of the final touchdown and the gutsy decision to try a 2-point conversion...
Mahomes always gives Chiefs a chance at victory (12/11/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- In an otherwise empty Kansas City Chiefs locker room, long after they had rallied to beat the Ravens in overtime and clinch a playoff berth, chairman Clark Hunt was asked what makes this year's team different than all those that suffered postseason letdowns...
Chiefs' Mahomes uses bye week to improve, not dwell on TOs (11/30/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Patrick Mahomes walked out of Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum two weeks ago with his jersey stained, his pride no doubt wounded and an uncharacteristic five turnovers blighting his box score. The only thing he stewed about during the Kansas City Chiefs' bye week was the final score...
Chiefs defense getting pressure on opposing quarterbacks (11/16/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs had the Cardinals' Josh Rosen seeing red last week. As in a whole lot of red jerseys right in his face. The Chiefs sacked Arizona's rookie quarterback five times in their 26-14 victory. They hit him 13 times, forced a fumble and generally made life miserable on a cold afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium...
Chiefs' maligned defense shines in victory over Arizona Cardinals (11/13/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs finally got Justin Houston back onto the field Sunday against Arizona, and the four-time Pro Bowl linebacker made one of the plays of the game when he picked off Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen on a second-half screen pass...
Chiefs QB Mahomes will go against another familiar young gun (11/10/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Patrick Mahomes Reunion Tour rolls on Sunday when the young, record-setting quarterback leads the high-flying Kansas City Chiefs against the Arizona Cardinals at Arrowhead Stadium. Last week, Mahomes shredded the Cleveland Browns while outplaying their rookie quarterback, Baker Mayfield. The two met when Mahomes was being recruited to Texas Tech and Mayfield helped to serve as his host, and their relationship continued even when Mayfield transferred to Oklahoma...
Chiefs using screen plays in creative new ways on offense (11/9/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Patrick Mahomes had been shredding the Patriots defense all night with his incredible arm strength and downfield precision in a back-and-forth shootout last month when it looked as if the Chiefs quarterback might be finally corralled by a well-timed blitz...
Watkins emerging as a star for Chiefs (10/30/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Sammy Watkins was supposed to be a game-changing star when the Buffalo Bills drafted him fourth overall in 2014, the kind of speedy wide receiver that could make plays all over the field. It never worked out that way. Watkins had a 1,000-yard season and was reasonably productive, but he never quite hit the stardom that was expected of him. ...
Chiefs look for season sweep of rival Broncos (10/27/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Denver Broncos did everything right in the first half against the Kansas City Chiefs a few weeks ago, holding Patrick Mahomes and their high-powered offense in check for 30 minutes. Everything unraveled after the break. The Chiefs found their rhythm behind a stable of offensive stars, their defense began to stop Broncos rookie running backs, and Kansas City mounted a second-half charge that resulted in yet another victory over its biggest rival in what has become a one-sided series.. ...
Chiefs continue to shine despite tough stretch of season (10/23/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs had just scored their second touchdown in less than 10 seconds of game time, an interception that Ron Parker returned untouched for a score, and taken a 38--7 lead over the Cincinnati Bengals with nearly an entire quarter to go...
Mahomes to Hill fruitful connection for high-flying Chiefs (10/18/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill have already developed such a strong rapport six games into their partnership that the Chiefs' quarterback has delivered passes to him just about every way possible. Right-handed. Left-handed. When Mahomes wasn't even trying...
Chiefs feeling good despite last-second loss to Patriots (10/16/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs trudged into the locker room after their first loss with Patrick Mahomes at quarterback, a streak that goes back six games to his Week 17 start last season. Here's the thing, though: There was no sense of defeat in Gillette Stadium on Sunday night...
Chiefs puts together complete team effort in lopsided win over Jaguars (10/9/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- For entirely different reasons, young quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs' defense had shared most of the public's attention through the first four weeks of the season. Mahomes had been nearly perfect. The defense had been nearly inept...
Chiefs accustomed to big leads, making it easy to ease up (9/28/18)KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs scored a touchdown every time they had the ball in the first half last Sunday, racing out to such a big lead against San Francisco that there was virtually no chance that the 49ers could come back. They still made it a little bit interesting...
