AFC and NFC West

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

It was an up and down day for the AFC West. All four teams had very tough opponents, a lot on the line, and it showed in the games.

The Kansas City Chiefs were the only undefeated team in the AFC West, the Los Angeles Chargers and Oakland Raiders had split the first two games, and the Denver Broncos were still looking for their first win of the 2019 season.

What would week 3 bring for the AFC West? Well, it was a rollercoaster for sure. One with expected losses, expected wins, and two games that were fantastic down to the last minute!

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.

Who should be the true face of an NFL franchise

Wanda Wiedman,
NFL Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

As the 2019 season rolls around most teams already have their potential face of the franchise ready to go for interviews and team representations. But is that one player, chosen by the front office, the true face of the franchise?

Many times teams get it wrong. They put a player in that role whom they feel fits “the mold”. They assume he is the one everyone wants to see.  

But what constitutes earning the right to be the face of the franchise? Does it always have to be a quarterback? Or should the face of the franchise be of the one who truly represents the team?

The “return” of Brett Favre?

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Raise your hand if you remember the “I’m retired now I’m not” phase of former Packers, Jets and Vikings quarterback Brett Favre.  Did anyone else get the feeling that when he finally hung it up, that it wasn’t really going to be the last time?  I know I did. But he finally settled into starring in Wrangler commercials and those copper wire commercials, fishing and whatever else it is retired NFL players do.

Then yesterday afternoon, an Instagram post changed all of that. Since Favre deleted it the post, I’ll have to stick with this tweet.

Thank you Chiefs

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.

Pro Bowl Day 2: Let the Flag Football Championships begin

Dayna O’Gorman,
Senior Sports Reporter

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

What started out as a rainy, windy day in Orlando, ended with perfect temperatures, hot dance moves, and a whole lot of fun.

The NFC practice had to be moved indoors due to the weather. With that change, it allowed the NFC practice and the AFC practice to be held at different times, which allowed fans to be able to watch both conferences. Today I attended the AFC practice.

Quarterbacks Andrew Luck (Indianapolis), DeShaun Watson (Houston), and Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City) took turns running plays with the team while head coach Anthony Lynn watched from a distance, letting coaches Gus Bradley and others take over.

The QBs ran a few running plays, but when they switched to passing plays, it seemed to turn into a game of keep away. The defense made their presence known by grabbing interceptions and blocking passes. Let’s just say, it was a good thing there weren’t any officials on the field. It was all in good fun and the players loved it.

Seahawks win over Chiefs prove Carroll’s philosophy still works

Seattle Seahawks Reporter

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

Chiefs 31 – Seahawks 38

For the Seattle Seahawks, last nights win against the Kansas City Chiefs was about more than getting a 17-2 record in prime time games. Even about more than clinching a playoff spot. This was a game about proving that the last few years weren’t a fluke. This game and this season has been about showing the NFL that the system, the Pete Carroll philosophy, still works.

I’ll admit it. Anyone who follows me on Twitter already knows. I didn’t watch this game live. Couldn’t watch this game live. December football stresses me out too much so I often have to watch games the next morning to save my sanity and my blood pressure. After watching the game this morning I can tell you, I’ve seen this team before. I’ve seen this energy before. And although wide receiver Doug Baldwin won’t say it, I will. It feels like 2012 all over again.

Eric Berry kicks off annual Stock the Shoppe campaign

Araceli Villanueva Kansas City Chiefs Reporter

By Araceli Villanueva //@Aracelv1

‘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

Araceli Villanueva Kansas City Chiefs Reporter

By Araceli Villanueva //@Aracelv1

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.

Browns face Chiefs in first test after coaching changes

Kate Arhar
Cleveland Browns Reporter

Chiefs 37 – Browns 21

Its been tumultuous week here in Cleveland. On Monday, head coach Hue Jackson was fired. While fans speculated on the timing and on when offensive coordinator Todd Haley would be named as interim coach, the announcement came that Haley was fired also.

This leaves defensive coordinator Gregg Williams as the “last man standing” in this year’s edition of “Cleveland Browns Coaching Survivor.” Not sure if you can call being put in charge of this team a personal victory, but Williams had his hands full facing the insanely productive Kansas City Chiefs offense and their incredibly talented quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
