Andy Reid: It’s the quarterback’s responsibility to get offense in rhythm

With the Chiefs losing four of five games and some (including me) raising the question of whether rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes should get a chance to play, it’s interesting to ponder coach Andy Reid’s comments to the media the day after an embarrassing loss to the Giants, which featured nine total points in more than [more]

Travis Kelce: We have to man up

The Chiefs lost 12-9 in overtime to the Giants on Sunday afternoon to move to 6-4 on the season and continue a run of disappointing play after their 5-0 start to the year. Any loss that sees an offense go without a touchdown is painful and that’s especially true when the opponents came into the [more]

Kansas City slump continues

When the Chiefs started the year 5-0, everything was working — and working well. In the past five games, they’ve slumped to 1-4. The latest loss borders on the shocking, for a couple of reasons.

Giants get their second win of the year

The Chiefs opened the season with five straight wins, but their next five games haven’t been nearly as successful.

Chiefs force overtime with late field goal

Giants take 6-3 lead into halftime

The Giants find themselves in possession of a halftime lead for the first time since Week Seven against the Seahawks.

Giants pulling out all their tricks, but can’t get any points

Giants coach Ben McAdoo got a seven-game window to make his case for sticking around and he’s starting it by playing every trick he has up his sleeve. The first of those tricks worked out when safety Nat Berhe ran for a first down on a fake punt from the Giants’ 41-yard-line on the team’s [more]

Eli Apple joins Sterling Shepard on the inactive list

Wide receiver Sterling Shepard was added to the Giants injury report on Saturday due to migraine headaches and the feeling early on Sunday was that Shepard would miss Sunday’s home game against the Chiefs.

Sunday’s date with the Giants begins a very easy late-season schedule for the Chiefs

The Chiefs have lost three of their last four games after starting the season 5-0, but there’s good news in Kansas City: The schedule is ridiculously easy the rest of the way. On Sunday the Chiefs play the 1-8 Giants, and the schedule is only a little bit harder after that: The Chiefs’ next game [more]
