After nearly three weeks between games over winter break, the Hiawatha Red Hawks played one game last week before Friday’s game was postponed due to weather, giving the teams another week off, and the rest did the Hawks well as both varsity teams scored a win against Riverside on Tuesday night.

The Christmas break seems to have come at the right time for Horton High School, as the Charger basketball teams each pushed to 2-0 since their return from the break. The Chargers knocked off Effingham a week ago, and on Tuesday night knocked off Oskaloosa to gain momentum heading into the s…

What a difference a week makes. After a win against the Vikings that looked like it would set the Chiefs back on the path toward a division title and a playoff bye, a setback against the hapless Tennessee Titans and their erstwhile quarterback situation felt like a monumental blow to the tea…

Saturday marks the opening round of the playoffs for teams that earned a bye, with the Kansas City Chiefs opening their tournament action against the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon. On its face, the game looks like a solid matchup for KC, though any fans who are looking ahead to a likely…

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…

The final two weeks of the regular season are upon us, and the Kansas City Chiefs are rounding into form. While the offense is still lagging compared to what we came to expect after last season’s dominance, the team as a whole has played three of its best games of the season over the past se…

That was an interesting week of football. There were some definite plusses and minuses for the Kansas City Chiefs, so let’s take a look at those while keeping an eye on the upcoming contest with the New England Patriots and the overall playoff picture.

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…

That was a big win, folks. There were a few reasons to believe that the Chiefs could overcome the visiting Vikings, but more signs pointed to a hot Vikings team stealing a win in Arrowhead. Picking up a win against another division leader is big at any time, but without your starting quarter…

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…

There’s a lot to unpack from the last week, as the extended time of a Thursday game bleeds into a long week of preparation and uncertainty surrounding the status of star quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Much like I discussed in my article a week ago, an ailing Mahomes, favoring one leg due to an…

Well I definitely read the last couple of weeks wrong. After the first three weeks of the season, I think most Chiefs fans were getting comfortable with the notion of an invincible football team. Sure, there were some injury concerns, but we can do without Tyreek Hill for a few weeks if Dema…

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…

Another week, another win in the books for the Kansas City Chiefs, as they continue their Super Bowl-or-bust season. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes continues his vicious assault on the NFL record books, racking up yardage and touchdowns at a mesmerizing pace and without regard for who surrounds…

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.

It’s come to the point in the preseason where we realize that much of what we had known is still the reality of what we know today, so it should come as no surprise that the biggest takeaway from the week comes from hundreds of miles away and a day after the game. Hosting San Francisco on Sa…

Two games down, two to go as the Kansas City Chiefs work through their preseason schedule. If you were a little bored with Saturday’s matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers, I think the team’s starting offense was right there with you. Patrick Mahomes and the entire crew looked out of sync and…

If there was anything to be gathered from last Saturday’s beat down of the lowly Cincinnati Bengals in the Chiefs’ preseason opener, it may have been a reminder that defenses just cannot cover everyone. Last season proved that point, and this weekend’s contest showed that the offense is goin…
