Over ten thousand of fans have made the trek to Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri to watch and get up close to their favorite Kansas City Chiefs players.

From tailgating in the parking lots to various outdoor activities, training camp has all the makings of a traditional game without the high price of a game ticket and parking pass.

At 8:15 am every morning, the Chiefs walk down the hill in front of screaming fans to the field to start their day by running numerous drills with each rotation until 11 am.

Newcomers cornerback Tyrann Mathieu, safety Juan Thornhill, and wide receiver Mecole Hardman have integrated well with the veterans; displaying strong performances – gearing up for their Arrowhead debut. But no one could ignore star quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ powerful arm.

Since the beginning of the offseason, the Kansas City Chiefs wasted little time to start rebuilding the defense – by seeking out a new defensive coordinator and staff, in addition to signing six new players.

 

They continued during the 2019 NFL Draft. Here is the Chiefs draft class of 2019:

Whether you were freezing in the stands at Arrowhead Stadium or sitting at home, fans across the country were watching arguably the best game of the season. 

Everyone was anxiously waiting to see if the Kansas City Chiefs could stamp their ticket to Super Bowl LIII.

Unfortunately, fans saw their dreams of a trip to Atlanta this year dashed during the last few seconds of a nerve-racking, heartbreaking 37-31 overtime loss to the New England Patriots.

‘Tis the season and KC Chiefs’ safety Eric Berry is in the Christmas spirit. The spirit of giving that is.

The Eric Berry Foundation kicked off their third annual Stock the Shoppe Gift Card and Toy Drive campaign at Nick and Jakes in Overland Park, KS. This is the first of four events being held in the metro area, and it was a success.

The mission of the campaign is to collect toys and raise funds for the Snowflake Shoppe at Children’s Mercy Kansas City which allows parents and caregivers to select gifts for children in the hospital, and their family members, at no cost, all without leaving the building.

Monday night football goes west

The Kansas City Chiefs were originally scheduled to play the Los Angeles Rams at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City for one of the biggest games of the year. However, the game was moved west to Los Angeles after officials declared the field was unfavorable. And with growing concerns from the players – who allegedly refused to play – it was a done deal.

Scheduled as an away game, it made sense to move the game to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. However, with an enormous Chiefs fan-based already residing in the City of Angles, I have no doubt they will turn the Coliseum into Arrowhead Stadium as they did earlier in the season when the Chiefs visited the Los Angeles Chargers in week one.

Kansas City Chiefs 27 – Denver Broncos 23

The Kansas City Chiefs extended their perfect record to 4-0 in a remarkable comeback win over the Denver Broncos at Mile High Stadium on Monday night. 

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes, yet again, is breaking records. Mahomes had already passed QB Peyton Manning’s record with his 13th touchdown pass through the first three weeks of the season against the San Francisco 49ers. 

The young quarterback is now 5-0 in his career starts and 2-0 in both showings in Denver.  Mahomes was able to swiftly maneuver around Denver’s defense after spotting a pocket of space and ran the ball into the end zone, scoring his first career touchdown during the second quarter.
