It’s been at the top of everyone’s mind since it happened. But according to Kansas City coaches, it’s time to move along.

On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs were in a position to win their second game of the season. Trailing the Baltimore Ravens 36-35 with 1:26 left in the game, the Chiefs had the ball on the Ravens’ 32-yard line after advancing 43 yards on just three plays that had taken 1:48 off the clock. Kansas City had all three of...

Steve Spagnuolo explains Daniel Sorensen over Juan Thornhill

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Sorensen leads the league in missed tackles, but the Chiefs sound like they will stay with the veteran on Sunday vs. LA.

In August of 2019, as he spoke about then-rookie safety Juan Thornhill, Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo admitted he wasn’t “privy” to starting rookies right away. If Thornhill were to start as the team’s safety next to veteran Tyrann Mathieu, he would have to earn it during training camp.

The task was...

Film review: How the Chiefs’ run defense can — and must — improve

Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images

After last Sunday’s disappointing performance in Baltimore, Kansas City’s defense will be hungry to take the field again..

The Kansas City Chiefs are not going to miss (or lose) the Super Bowl because they don't have a great run defense. They can, however, certainly come up short of those championship aspirations by having a league-worst run defense — which is what they have been through two weeks.

In this film review, we will examine what went...

Jarran Reed: Chiefs are ‘pissed off’ about defensive play against Ravens

Photo by William Purnell/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, the Kansas City defensive end pulled no punches.

Through the first two games of the season, the Kansas City Chiefs’ rushing defense is ranked dead last in the NFL.

So far this season the Chiefs have had the worst rush defense in the NFL.

They are averaging giving up—

202 yards per game
3.5 rushing TD’s
6.0 yards per carry.

That puts them on pace to give up 3434 yards and 59.5 rushing...

Byron Pringle just wants to pull his weight in the Chiefs’ offense

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

The fourth-year wideout had some standout plays against the Ravens on Sunday.

One of the few bright spots in the Kansas City Chiefs' 36-35 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3 was yet another excellent game from Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who passed for 343 yards (with three touchdowns and an interception) and a superb passer rating of 131.5.

But unlike during the Week 1 victory over the Cleveland Browns, he did it without leaning so heavily on...

The second-year linebacker’s 2021 debut might come next week against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Kansas City Chiefs placed Willie Gay Jr. on injured reserve on September 2 — after the linebacker suffered a turf toe injury in the team’s final preseason game.

Gay’s placement on injured reserve meant that he would be out for at least the first three games of the season. On Wednesday, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid provided an update on...

Reid provided greater clarity on those players when he greeted the media on Wednesday.

The bad news for the Chiefs is that running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is...

Tretter — who is also the president of the NFL Players’ Association (NFLPA) — the NFL has fined Kansas City Chiefs running backs coach Greg Lewis for his role in an incident involving Browns safety Ronnie Harrison Jr. during a Week 1 game between the two teams in Kansas City.

Opinions vary on where Chiefs should stand in Week 3 power rankings

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

After Sunday night’s loss in Baltimore, it’s not surprising that Kansas City would fall. The argument is over how much.

After the Kansas City Chiefs suffered a one-point loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday evening, some power rankings authors chose to consider it as nothing but a blip on the radar. Others thought otherwise. Our favorite word among those written about the Chiefs this week is “aberrational.”
