Good morning AG! Let’s see what’s going on!
Chiefs release updated depth chart for Week 13 | usatoday
There were a couple of changes to the 53-man roster this week, but the most recent transactions didn’t go through before the team published their latest depth chart. That means those changes (like the return of Kyle Long) won’t be reflected on the depth chart this week. Remember, these depth charts are considered to be “unofficial” because they are assembled by the team’s PR staff, instead of the coaching staff, which means you should take them with a grain of salt. They don’t always reflect what will actually happen in a game.
Former Chiefs TE Daniel Brown reunites with Jets after release | usatoday
When the Kansas City Chiefs traded veteran guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif for tight end Daniel Brown, the move reeked of financial trickery. Brown is a seventh-year player with limited offensive experience but showed a lot of upside as a special teamer with the New York Jets in recent seasons.
Denver Broncos must wrestle history to earn division lead in Kansas City | espn
But none mattered to the current state of the rivalry more than Dec. 31, 2017. On a cloudy, 17-degree day in Denver, a 22-year-old Patrick Mahomes made his first NFL start at quarterback for the Chiefs.
And while Mahomes threw his first career interception (Darian Stewart made the play) and did not have his first 300-yard passing performance (he finished with 284 yards), the Chiefs still won 27-24. Even then, it was abundantly clear young Mr. Mahomes was going to be a significant issue for all things Broncos for years to come.
Especially since the Broncos’ own first-round quarterback that day — Paxton Lynch — threw two interceptions and was sacked five times in the last of his four career starts for the Broncos. That’s known as one football ship passing another — like at Cigarette boat speed — in the night.

I Tried All Of The Food At The Kansas City Chiefs Arrowhead Stadium, And These Were The Best | yahoo
When I was thinking of where to start my Stadium Eats journey, I looked no further than GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. Home to the Kansas City Chiefs (Super Bowl winners in 2020!) and home to the best tailgate in the NFL, or so the fans say. Besides being known for their killer BBQ, the Chiefs take home the crown for being the loudest stadium in America. When the venue is at full capacity—76,416 people—the crowd mimics the sound of a jet flying 100 feet over your head.
Which Teams Are Getting the Best ROI On Offensive Investments? | the33rdteam
One of the more popular ways to measure the success of a play in the NFL is Expected Points Added, abbreviated as EPA. Teams aim to have a high offensive EPA and a low defensive EPA, resulting in the maximum expected number of points scored while allowing the fewest. This metric can then be averaged throughout a season.
In order to see which teams have successfully constructed productive rosters, let’s take a look at which teams have gotten the best and worst returns on their player contracts.
