Chiefs, League set Schedule Release Date

The Kansas City Chiefs, along with the rest of the NFL, set the official release date of the 2021 NFL regular season schedule: May 12, 2021.

Chiefs fans already know who the team will play at home and on the road this season, but May 12th’s Chiefs schedule release will fill in the rest of the unknowns. From dates and times to who and where Kansas City plays each week will all be unveiled during the schedule release.

The 2021 season will be unlike any other in league history, with each team playing a 17-game schedule. The league and the player’s association agreed upon and approved the added game earlier in the offseason. The added game means an extra home game for the Chiefs in 2021, with that opponent being the Green Bay Packers. | READ MORE

The 2021 Chiefs schedule should be one of the best in years, especially at Arrowhead Stadium. With the likes of the Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers all set to visit Arrowhead, the Chiefs home schedule is full of great matchups.

Six of Kansas City’s opponents in 2021 are playoff teams from a season ago. Washington, Tennessee, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Buffalo all made the playoffs last season, with Kansas City knocking out Buffalo in the AFC Championship game.

The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off of back-to-back appearances in the Super Bowl, as well as three straight appearances in the AFC Championship game. Led by Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs will look to get back into the big game for a third consecutive season and bring home their second Lombardi trophy in three years.

Having nine home games will help the Chiefs in their pursuit, especially if fans will be back at full capacity. Commissioner Roger Goodell announced on March 30th that the league expects to have full stadiums during the 2021 season.

Kansas City was one of only a handful of teams to allow fans in 2020, operating at a 22% capacity for each home game. With the Chiefs set for a 17-game schedule in 2021, capacity crowds are Arrowhead will go a long way as KC aims to stay atop the AFC.

Chiefs Offseason News and Notes

The Kansas City Chiefs entered the offseason with plenty of momentum, but many questions needing answers.

The first came with the franchise tag on safety Eric Berry, which means the Chiefs are planning on working out a long-term deal to keep him in Kansas City for years to come.

Berry, coming back from cancer treatment, played better than anyone could have possibly envisioned, and proved that he has been and remains one of the core players on the defensive side of the ball and is deserving of a big deal to keep him in Kansas City.

Tuesday, the Chiefs followed up with the signing of defensive end/linebacker Tamba Hali. Coming into the latter half of his career, Hali has been one of the more productive defensive players in Chiefs history. It wasn’t a guarantee KC would keep the veteran player, but as he still puts up numbers and performs at a high level, the Chiefs opted to resign him and keep him here for potentially the rest of his career.

Another player which has made an impact on the defense recently is defensive back Sean Smith. It is not know and maybe not expected that Smith will return to KC, especially with the emergence of Marcus Peters on the outside.

Chiefs preparing for NFL Draft

While there is still plenty of time for things to change and players to move up and down the draft boards, most pundits are projecting the Chiefs to take an offensive lineman with their first selection. lists the KC taking offensive tackle Jason Spriggs from Indiana with the 28th pick in the first round. Another name which has been mentioned is offensive guard Joshua Garnett from Stanford.

Andy Reid could use some young talent on the offensive end to keep the offensive running efficiently and to help protect Alex Smith and the Chiefs running game, but depending on which players are taken ahead of them, and whether or not someone falls to the latter portion of the first round, it’s almost impossible to project what General Manager John Dorsey and Co., will do with their top selection.

Chiefs Move to 8-5

Seven in a row is music to the ears of Chiefs fans all over the Kansas City metro.

On a nasty, rain-soaked (but oddly warm) day at Arrowhead Stadium, and stout KC defense and a timely Chiefs offense walked away with a 10-3 victory over the San Diego Chargers.

A final minute stand in the red zone led to the victory and brought to life pass rusher and rookie Dee Ford, something fans had been waiting for since the start of the season.

With Ford showing his promise as a future star, Kansas City has three legitimate pass rushers in the box with Ford, Tamba Hali, and Justin Houston.

Phillip Rivers and the Chargers–now 3-10–struggled on the offensive end throughout the day, going 24-43 for 263 yards but zero touchdowns and one interception.

On a soggy day, the running game would seem to be the more effective form of offense, but rookie Melvin Gordon was unable to get anything going either, rushing 14 times for just 35 yards.

Offensively for Kansas City, the biggest play came on a 44 yard passing touchdown to Albert Wilson with 1:53 left in the first half. Outside of that, it was essentially a defensive battle throughout the game with the rain never stopping once.

Andy Reid’s team, now 7 wins in a row after starting the season 1-5, is in a position to potentially win the division now that Denver has started to slip with Peyton Manning out with an injury and a sputtering offense behind backup Brock Osweiler.

Things don’t get any easier for Denver when they travel to Pittsburgh next.

Kansas City is set to take on the Baltimore Ravens, a team which has lost two in a row and now sits at 4-9 on the season.

The remaining schedule for Kansas City is favorable for at least a spot in the wild card, which would mean the Chiefs would somehow crawl out of the sinkhole they found themselves in midway through the season, and turned it into a playoff run.

Aside from the undefeated Carolina Panthers, KC is the hottest team in the NFL and are still lacking any coverage from national media. With few dominant teams this season in the league, the Chiefs have a legitimate chance to make a run at the AFC crown.

Following the final road game of the year, Kansas City returns to Arrowhead Stadium for a December 27 match-up against the lowly Cleveland Browns.

Chiefs Win 6th In A Row, Defeat Raiders

The defense showed out on Sunday in a 34-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders in what was a homecoming for both Marcus Peters and Tyvon Branch–a former Raider himself.

Peters continued his tremendous rookie season with an interception which led to the go-ahead touchdown, while Branch finished off the rival Raiders with a pick six late in the fourth quarter.

The Chiefs (7-5) have now won six in a row and are as hot as any team in the NFL other than the undefeated Carolina Panthers.

After a dreadful 1-5 start and a season-ending injury to Jamaal Charles, Kansas City’s offense has come alive, averaging 32 points per game over its win streak and defensively, giving up just 13.5 points per game.

Alex Smith, without the use of his star running back, has been an entirely different beast for the Chiefs. Not only has Smith scored touchdowns and made plays with his legs–which he has done throughout his career–but the ball has been thrown down-field more often than at any point since his arrival in Kansas City.

With Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelcy as weapons in the passing game, Andy Reid has looked to make plays outside of the normal running game and screen passes, which has proven to be quite successful.

As impressive as the offense has been, the Chiefs defense has been equally as stout.

In the fourth quarter alone, KC turned three interceptions into three touchdowns. After falling behind 20-6, KC stormed back by getting stops and running efficient offense on a day where field conditions were subpar in Oakland.

After two of the three picks, Alex Smith capitalized by tossing two touchdown passes to Maclin and the Chiefs were well on their way to spoiling the fun for Raiders fans.

With four games left–three at home–the Chiefs face a relatively easy path to finish out the year. The Chargers, Ravens, Browns, and Raiders all await the Chiefs, and each of KC’s final opponents have struggled this season, particularly Cleveland and the Raiders.

Sunday’s noon kickoff at Arrowhead Stadium against the Chargers is scheduled to bring some ideal weather in the Kansas City area for mid-December. Now is the time to visit Tickets For Less and purchase your seats to Sunday’s AFC West battle and cheer on your Chiefs as they look for a 7th straight win and a spot in the playoffs.

Chiefs Send Manning to Bench

It was an odd day at the new Mile High Stadium, Sunday.

Despite taking control of the all-time lead in passing yards as a QB in the NFL, Peyton Manning accrued the worst registered QB rating since the stat was invented, going 5-for-15 with 35 yards and 4 interceptions before being pulled for the backup.

On his first pass attempt of the game, Manning was picked off by Marcus Peters, the Chiefs’ top overall draft pick in 2015. Eventually, Manning would secure his record, throwing a short out-route to a receiver and resulting in a stoppage of play to commemorate the record being broken (originally held by Brett Favre).

Manning clearly wasn’t enthused about stopping the action in the middle of a drive, but did so anyway and acted with class to everyone congratulating him, including the Kansas City Chiefs.

Whether or not his rhythm was gone, or a supposed torn planters facia kept him off balance, no one will know, but needless to say, it was Manning’s worst offensive performance of his career.

The Chiefs, on the other hand, looked complete in sync with one another, only failing to convert drives into touchdowns as opposed to field goals, but with 4 interceptions, and two or three more which were dropped, the defense put on a display for the ages.

With Peters, Shawn Smith, Derrick Johnson, and Eric Berry in coverage, the Chiefs made it tough for Manning to every find openings for his receivers. On top of that, constant pressure from Tamba Hali and Justin Houston made it virtually impossible to ever get a good read on a downfield throw, often overthrowing receivers.

It has become clear that as a general statement, Peyton Manning is, for all intents and purposes, at the end of his time as a productive NFL QB.

The Broncos will ride him for as long as they can, and when his foot is healed and he has had significant rest, Manning will step out on the field again, despite many predicted he may done for good.

There will be games where Manning will perform like the player we have seen for years, but in the grand scheme of things, his presence on the field may start to cause more harm than good, and should he have another performance like the one he had against the Chiefs, Gary Kubiak and his coaching staff, along with GM John Elway, will have a serious decision to make.

Next up for the Chiefs is another game on the road, this time at the San Diego Chargers, Sunday, before heading home to take on the Buffalo Bills at Arrowhead Stadium on November 29.

Chiefs Enjoy Bye Week Before Date with Broncos

We’re already halfway through the NFL season and the Chiefs, coming off two consecutive wins, have reach their bye week before heading to Denver to take on the rival Broncos and one of the league’s top defensive units.

Andy Reid has seen his team look better each of the last two weeks, culminating in wins over the Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium, and a demolition of the Lions (45-10) in London last Sunday.

This week, the Chiefs have a chance to rest up, get healthy, and hit the practice field hard before facing the Broncos, a team which KC should have defeated earlier in the year on Monday Night Football.

A late Jamaal Charles fumble followed a Peyton Manning touchdown throw, sinking the Chiefs in front of the home crowd during its most emotional game of the season.

Things would only get worse for Kansas City for the next several weeks, including a season-ending ACL tear for Charles.

However, Alex Smith and Co., have pulled it together and are playing solid, all-around good team football.

With Denver coming up, the focus won’t be as much on how to stop Manning, but rather how to move the offense and avoid turnovers on a spectacular Broncos D.

Of course Manning will always serve as a dangerous weapon anytime he takes the field, but with an obvious loss in velocity and unable to make many of the throws he has made for so long, the Chiefs bigger concern has to turn to the other side of the ball.

In terms of local interest, the Broncos secondary is headlined by two former Kansas Jayhawks, Aqib Talib and Chris Harris, Jr., who are ball-hawking corners that typically shut down their opponents.

Talib, when focused and healthy, is quite possibly the best corner in the NFL, while Harris continues to make a name for himself as one of the elite DB’s.

The Chiefs, although better at passing, haven’t proven to be a truly dynamic passing offense, which means defenses can hone in on the ground game.

Without Jamaal Charles, the ground game shrinks to Alex Smith’s scrambling ability, and a young Charcandrick West, who has been a spark since taking over the running duties.
