The NCAA tournament comes with more fanfare than just about any other sporting event in America, second only to, perhaps, the Super Bowl. The opening weekend of this year’s affair was packed full of upsets—in fact, only one section of the bracket still has both their 1 and 2 seed still stand…

The Game of the Year is here, and after a 49 year absence, the Kansas City Chiefs liked it so much last year, they decided to come back. On the opposite sideline of their home field, the Tampa Buccaneers, led by Old Man Football, await the defending champs.

This was the week we’ve all been waiting for. Watching the Chiefs blast their way through a good team like the Buffalo Bills on Sunday evening served as a reminder of just how complete Kansas City can be when they have all phases firing. As masterful as Patrick Mahomes was in the AFC Champio…

The Kansas City Chiefs record for the 2020 season officially sits at 14-2 as the season drew to a close on Sunday, though anyone who watched the game would be fairly certain the record is 14-1 with the Chiefs-as-we-know-them abstaining from the 16th game. With the vast majority of the team’s…

Sunday’s 17-14 win over the visiting Atlanta Falcons was definitely not the cleanest or most impressive game of the year for the Kansas City Chiefs, but it may have been the most important, as the team put the final touches on securing the AFC’s top overall seed, the only bye on their side o…

There was a lot of positive and a lot of negative to take away from Sunday’s Chiefs win over the New Orleans Saints. The team moved to 13-1 with just two games left in the season, and with a Steelers loss, that puts Kansas City well on their way to the first overall seed in the AFC and the c…

In a game where just about everything went wrong, the Kansas City Chiefs were able to walk away with a relatively easy win, and with a Pittsburgh loss, the day proved to be about as positive as it could be, with the Chiefs moving to 12-1 on the season and moving into sole possession of 1st p…

Sunday’s matchup between AFC West foes the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos was, for all intents and purposes, a blowout win for the Chiefs. The 43-16 shellacking came with points scored from the offense, defense and special teams units, but as gratifying of a win as that sounds like it…

We are one week into the freshly-minted NFL season, and everything is going to plan for the Kansas City Chiefs, thus far. The defending Super Bowl champs easily dispatched the Houston Texas last Thursday night by a score of 34-20 in a game that was not nearly as close as the two-score differ…

By the time you read this, we will be less than a week away from the first round of the NFL Draft. In our current sports-vacuum of a world, I expect viewership to hit all-time numbers, and possibly to even rival the Super Bowl. To put it plainly, sports fans everywhere need this and if it go…

What a remarkable game. Kansas City’s monumental comeback and eventual blowout win were the stuff legends are built on, as the team became the first to trail by 24 points and then lead by halftime, as well as the first ever to trail by 20 or more and then win by 20, and also set a new record…

A bye week is quite a Christmas present, and that is just what the Chiefs received courtesy of the Miami Dolphins last weekend, as the Fins knocked off the Patriots in Foxboro to push Kansas City into the AFC’s 2-seed. Don’t get me wrong, the Chiefs have done their part, but Sunday’s upset i…

There is one week to go before the playoffs, Chiefs fans, and this team is playing good, all-around football, is as healthy as it’s been since week one, and is flying completely under the radar heading into the big tourney. Of course a bye would be preferable, but outside of that I think the…

Bye week is upon us, and I don’t know if it could have come quick enough. Not only does the break give fans a chance to catch their breath (and maybe get some Christmas lights hung), but the late bye gives the Chiefs finally have a chance to get fully healthy as they prepare themselves for t…

Eight weeks have gone by and the Kansas City Chiefs, in the midst of the “meat” of their loaded schedule, are perhaps the league’s shakiest 5-3 team. You could also call them the most dangerous 5-3 team in the league. It’s hard to remember a season that has seemed as out of sorts and askew o…

Well I read that one wrong. In claiming that last weekend’s game against the Detroit Lions would be a walkover, I underestimated both the Lions’ ceiling and the Chiefs’ floor. In readjusting my views on the season, it is good to see that on their worst day (that we have seen with Patrick Mah…

The season opener is in the books for the Kansas City Chiefs, and what a start it was to the 2019 season. The Chiefs traveled to Jacksonville to take on one of the best defenses in the league and hung 40 points on the Jaguars to come away with a 14-point win.
