Andy Reid: Our time of possession is way out of whack

After the Chiefs lost to the Texans on Sunday, defensive end Frank Clark said that the Chiefs defense has to stop “putting the pressure on our offense to do everything” but the issues that have contributed to two straight losses haven’t been limited to one side of the ball. The Chiefs had the ball for [more]

Chiefs corner Kendall Fuller has fracture in thumb

The Chiefs have yet another injury to be concerned about, heading into a short week. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Chiefs cornerback Kendall Fuller suffered a “slight fracture” to his thumb in Sunday’s loss to the Texans. He’s continuing to get medical opinions, so it’s unclear if he’ll miss time, or how much. [more]

Broncos list Emmanuel Sanders as limited on Monday

Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders missed the end of Sunday’s 16-0 victory over the Titans because he left the game with a knee injury. Denver has a quick turnaround to Thursday’s game against the Chiefs and Sanders’s early exit suggested he might have a hard time making it into the lineup. Reports on Monday indicated [more]

Chiefs list Patrick Mahomes as full practice participant

The Chiefs, of course, didn’t practice Monday, less than 24 hours after their game against the Texans. But if they had, the team estimates Patrick Mahomes would have fully practiced. Mahomes has tweaked his ankle multiple times this season, and it’s caused him to limp at times. But he has played 389 of a possible [more]

Lamar Jackson, MVP candidate

In trying to figure out the current MVP candidates, the list begins with players like Russell Wilson, Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, and Christian McCaffrey. But it hardly ends there. If the Packers end up with the No. 1 seed in the NFC, Aaron Rodgers deserves some votes, given his role in the shifting of the [more]

Deshaun Watson glad Bill O’Brien trusted him late in Sunday’s win

The Texans had a decision to make during the two minute warning in Kansas City on Sunday. They were up 31-24 and facing a fourth-and-three from the Chiefs’ 27-yard-line, which meant they could try a field goal to extend their lead to two scores or they could try for a first down to run out [more]

Something fishy happened in that Texans-Chiefs call

There was no pool report, no video from Al Riveron. And there likely will be no public admission regarding the conversation(s) that resulted in a key defensive pass interference foul being wiped out in the Texans-Chiefs game. But something fishy happened, as evidenced by the images broadcast by CBS. It occurred with the Chiefs leading [more]

Chiefs still don’t understand disappearance of pass interference flag

The Chiefs still don’t understand why officials picked up a penalty thrown for defensive pass interference on the Texans. Referee Shawn Hochuli made an announcement after waving off the flag, “After discussion, the contact that was potentially a hold was while the ball was in the air. It is not pass interference because it was [more]

Frank Clark: We can’t keep putting pressure on offense to do everything

The Chiefs offense didn’t have the best day on Sunday, but they still staked the team to a 14-point lead in the first quarter against the Texans. The entire lead would disappear before halftime. Houston scored 20 points to take a halftime lead that they briefly yielded to the Chiefs before rallying for the game-winning [more]

Carlos Hyde: League should be on notice after this win

Texans running back Carlos Hyde had a message to those watching Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. After scoring a touchdown in the 31-24 road win, Hyde found a camera and yelled “they can’t f—–g stop us” into it. Hyde said after the game that he wants to avoid profanity, but the message he was trying [more]

Texans come back to beat the Chiefs

The Chiefs got a playmaker back, but they’re still well short of 100 percent. Now, they have a losing streak to show for it. The Texans escaped Kansas City with a 31-24 win, scoring 20 unanswered after an early deficit, and salting the game away late. That’s the second straight home loss for the Chiefs, [more]

Tytus Howard carted off with knee injury

Texans rookie offensive tackle Tytus Howard was rolled from behind early in the third quarter. It left him rolling on the field in pain. Howard was carted off with an injury to his left knee on a 1-yard run by Carlos Hyde only 27 seconds into the second half. He is doubtful to return. Roderick [more]

Texans take lead before halftime, after another turnover

Not all the Chiefs turnovers were necessarily their fault. But they gave another one away, and the Chiefs have a halftime lead. Taking advantage of a strip-sack-fumble deep in Chiefs territory, the Texans just took a 23-17 lead at halftime. One play after collecting the fumble, Deshaun Watson scampered in on his own for the [more]

Strange call in Kansas City keeps Texans very much alive

The screwy status of replay review for pass interference is starting to screw up the rulings made without the benefit of another look. In the second quarter of Sunday’s Texans-Chiefs game, Houston defensive back Tashaun Gipson intercepted Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the end zone. But the turnover was negated by a ruling on [more]

Tyreek Hill makes quick impact upon his return

It didn’t take long for the Chiefs to realize how much they missed Tyreek Hill. The Chiefs wideout just went over the top of a pair of Texans defenders for a 46-yard touchdown reception, giving his team a quick 7-0 lead. Hill has missed the last four games with a clavicle injury, and the Chiefs [more]
