Report: Eagles request interview with Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy | ChiefsWire

According to a new report from NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, the Philidelphia Eagles have officially asked for permission to interview Eric Bieniemy for their head-coaching vacancy. They don’t have a specific interview-date scheduled due to the NFL’s anti-tampering policy and the Chiefs still being in contention in the playoffs.

Chiefs make several roster moves before facing Browns | AA

One move made by the Chiefs on Saturday was placing backup tight end Deon Yelder on injured reserve. To replace him on the active roster, the team added Ricky Seals-Jones. Seals-Jones played very little during the year after signing a one-year deal with the Chiefs in the offseason. This likely places more importance on Nick Keizer’s performance as the primary backup for Travis Kelce.

In addition, the Chiefs have added linebacker Dorian O’Daniel to the active roster officially after removing him from injured reserve earlier in December. The team had three weeks to add him or stash him back on IR for the duration of the season. O’Daniel gives the Chiefs a bit more security at linebacker and on special teams given the absence of Willlie Gay, Jr. due to injury. Gay was ruled out for Sunday’s game earlier this week along with wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

In addition, the Chiefs made two more moves to add their weekly players from the practice squad. This week, they chose defensive back Chris Lammons and wide receiver Gehrig Dieter.

How to Watch and Listen | Divisional Round: Chiefs vs. Browns | Chiefs.com

• The Chiefs and Browns will meet for the 27th time in the history of the two franchises on Sunday. Kansas City holds a 13-11-2 edge in the all-time series. This will mark the first postseason meeting between the two squads.

• Chiefs’ Head Coach Andy Reid is undefeated against the Browns in his career, going 7-0.

• The Chiefs will be looking for their fourth-consecutive victory over Cleveland. In the last three matchups, Kansas City’s defense has allowed 17 points-per-game on average.

How much will the Chiefs miss Sammy Watkins against Browns? | KCStar

“We all love Sammy — he’s done a heck of a job here —but with any situation like this, we just say next guy up and we go,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “I’m not sure anybody blinks on that — you just giddy-up and go. That’s not because Sammy’s not a great player; that’s not it. It’s just one of those things, how this team is wired. We do the best we possibly can. From a coaching standpoint on down with the players, just do the best you can and here we go.”

Time of Possession Doesn’t Impact the Chiefs and It Won’t Help the Browns | AR

Most of the Chiefs’ losses have common threads: a combination of turnovers, uncharacteristically bad offensive play and poor defensive play that lets the opponent have breathing room in the margins. In other words, when the Chiefs play poorly or if the other team outplays them, they lose! It’s hard to say in any of their games that time of possession contributed at a meaningful level to the Chiefs’ loss. Their losses come entirely from them not capitalizing on drives like they usually do.

If the Chiefs offense is firing on all cylinders, no amount of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt churning clock will lead to a Chiefs loss against the Browns on Sunday. For every eight-minute touchdown drive the Browns have, the Chiefs will have a chance to respond with a touchdown of their own. “Keep Patrick Mahomes on the sideline” at your own risk; in doing so, it might just be shortening the amount of time available to come back from the onslaught of touchdowns he and the Chiefs will score.

Chris Jones sends colorful warning to Chiefs | 247Sports

All-Pro defensive tackle Chris Jones had a colorful response this week while explaining why the Chiefs can’t afford to let their guard down.

“You can’t get bored in this league,” Jones said, via Herbie Teope of the Kansas City Star and Myles Simmons of ProFootballTalk. “That’s how you get your ass kicked.”

I’m curious, if the pundits picking us to lose really think that it’s going to happen, or just want to see it happen out of spite. Everyone loves to see the underdog. However, No one was picking against GB last night…

I so enjoy the Raven misery. I really dislike that team. Will be really interesting to see what they do with Jackson’s contract. Would you throw out of 400M Watkins size contract?
