Report: Jeremy Maclin Headed to Kansas City

David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- Andy Reid has wooed one of his former first-round picks to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Jeremy Maclin will agree to a contract with Kansas City once free agency begins Tuesday, according to ESPN.

While with the Eagles, Reid selected Maclin with the 19th pick in the 2009 NFL draft. 

Maclin missed all of the 2013 season with a torn ACL. He bounced back for a career season under Chip Kelly last year as he caught 85 passes for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns.

To clear cap space for the move, the Chiefs have restructured the contract of defensive end Tamba Hali and are expected to release wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.

Chiefs Prepare for Cardinals

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- The Kansas City Chiefs (7-5) will be in Arizona to take on the Cardinals (9-3) on Sunday.

The Chiefs have lost two games in a row and sit two games back of the AFC West leading Denver Broncos (9-3) to go along with being one of six teams with a 7-5 record in the AFC.

"Anytime you get a couple losses strung together it's tough," Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said. "Got to fight to reverse it.  I think the thing is to go back to your fundamentals, go back to what you know what works."

The NFC West leading Cardinals have also lost two games in a row, but sit one game ahead of the Seahawks (8-4).

"There's two pictures -- the two-game losing streak and being 9-3. We have to get back to the things that got us to this point," Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said. "The next one is huge to maintain where we're at. The sky has not fallen yet. We're still No. 1, and we need to stay there this week."

Andy Reid Prepares for Rams

Jason O.Watson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- The Kansas City Chiefs (3-3) are expecting everything from the St. Louis Rams (2-4) on Sunday.

Kansas City will host the Austin Davis led Rams at Arrowhead Stadium and head coach Andy Reid will have his team prepared.

"On the offensive side, they’re explosive. Anytime you can take a young quarterback like that and have him come in and play at the level that he’s playing at, first of all means he’s talented, but it also means you’re doing a heck of a job coaching him," Reid said this week.  "Their runners are good, their receivers are good, their tight ends-everybody’s contributing there. Then, special teams, they’re scoring points too and making big plays. You got a good football team that you’ve got to get ready for. They throw a lot of things at you, offensively, defensively and on special teams. That’s been a [Rams head coach] Jeff Fisher trait over the years that he’s been a head coach."

Davis led the Rams to a 28-26 win over the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday and Reid said that he's come a long way.

"He’s accurate and gets the ball out. Looks like he’s managing things very well, everybody’s where they need to be. Looks like he’s hitting the right receivers. To me, I mean, I studied him when he came out, he’s a good football player," Reid said.  "He’s transferred that from college into the NFL. He’s a football player, he gets it. That’s an impressive deal, I think. That’s a plus anytime your third guy can come in and do a great job. (Rams Offensive Coordinator) Brian (Schottenheimer) is a great coach too, so he’s lucky to be in good hands there, from an offensive standpoint."

Luck Rallies Colts to Stunning 45-44 Victory Over the Chiefs 

Peter Aiken/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) --  Andrew Luck orchestrated one of the greatest comebacks in NFL playoff history, leading the Indianapolis Colts to a stunning 45-44 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday.

Luck threw four second-half touchdown passes to help the Colts rebound from a 28-point deficit.  It is the first postseason victory of the young quarterback's career.

It is only the second time in playoff history a team rallied from a deficit of 28 or more points to win, according to STATS.

"We never panicked," Luck said. "We took it one play at a time."

Kansas City (11-6) lost its final three games after a 9-0 start to the season.  They lost several key players to injury during the game.  Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles left the game in the first quarter with a concussion and did not return.

Alex Smith passed for 378 yards with four touchdowns, but it was not enough to hold off the fiesty Colts.

Indianapolis (12-5) will either travel to Denver or New England next weekend for the divisional round.

Chiefs Looking for Redemption over Colts

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- After falling to the Colts 23-7 in Week 16, the Kansas City Chiefs are hoping to knock off the AFC South champs in their house on Saturday.

The Colts have won three straight headed into the game, but Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and his team are looking forward to playing at Lucas Oil Stadium.

"I believe they’re hungry and ready to play...," Reid said on Wednesday. "Now you just have to go do it. That’s the measuring stick, have we prepared ourselves well enough as players and coaches to go out and play a good football team and the test is on Saturday."

Reid understands that having just played Indianapolis, the Colts will be familiar with their schemes.

"Every week is different. Every week, you pull out a new wrinkle here or there; everybody does that in this league. We’re no different there," Reid said.  "Sure, there will be a couple of things different here and there. Will it be drastically different? No, I don’t think so. I don’t think anybody gets to this point and then completely changes things on what they do, but there surely will be a little wrinkle here or there."

Chiefs Roll Past the Redskins, 45-10

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- The Kansas City Chiefs and the Washington Redskins are heading in different directions. After the Chiefs 45-10 win over Washington, the Chiefs are now 10-3 while the Redskins are 3-10.

The Chiefs had lost three-games in a row after winning their first nine games of the season, but you'd never know watching the game.

Alex Smith was steady as usual for the Chiefs, as he threw for 137 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. Running back Jamaal Charles had 151 rushing yards with one touchdown as well. The team also had their 10th return for a touchdown on special teams.

"It's tough to lose three games in the National Football League, three consecutive games," Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said after the game. "It seems like a year, those are dog years as you would say -- each week that you have a loss in the NFL. For those guys to come back and rebound after that, I was proud of that."

The Chiefs only won two games all of last season.

Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- The San Diego Chargers (5-6) handed the Kansas City Chiefs (9-2) their first home loss of the season with a 41-38 last second win on Sunday.

Philip Rivers led the team down the field for a game winning drive with seconds remaining.  Rivers watched from the sideline during the Chiefs possession and saw Alex Smith lead his team down the field to give them the lead.

Rivers got his chance to win the game when he connected with Seyi Ajirotutu in the end zone with 24 seconds remaining.

"It's one of those you'll never forget, that's for sure," Rivers said.  "It's kind of what our season's been about.  Can you drive and score at the end?"

The Chargers snapped a three-game losing streak and are in contention for a playoff spot with five weeks remaining.

"I'll tell you right now, we've got a great quarterback," Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said. "There was no doubt in my mind at the end of the game he was going out and scoring."

Rivers finished with three touchdowns and 392 yards in the victory.  Smith threw three touchdowns of his own and had 294 yards with an interception in the loss.

The Chiefs also suffered two big losses on defense.  Both Tamba Hali and Justin Houston left with injuries and are questionable headed into their game next weekend against the Broncos.

Chiefs Prepare for Broncos

Jason O.Watson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Kansas City Chiefs may get their toughest challenge on Sunday night when they take on the Denver Broncos (8-1).

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will play despite being limited in practice this week and is hoping to hand Kansas City (9-0) their first loss.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was asked on Monday how the team will prepare for their AFC West opponent.

"The important part is that you go back to the things you've done every week from a preparation standpoint. You respect the heck out of Denver and you study them and get yourself right as a team. Make sure you know the scheme, stay up on what you need to be at physically at the highest level. That's how you go about doing your business," Reid said on a conference call.

Reid will make sure his team understands the importance of the game, but wants them to focus on just football.

"You don't want to get caught up in all the other distractions going on with it being a Sunday night game or playing the Broncos, you want to make sure you get yourself prepared to play a good football team," he said.

Chiefs Get by Bills, 23-13, Improve to 9-0

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.) -- Alex Smith didn't throw a touchdown pass, but the Chiefs were bailed out by their defense in the 23-13 win over the Bills on Sunday.

Sean Smith picked off Jeff Tuel in the third quarter for a 100-yard interception return to tie the game up. 

Birthday boy and Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali was the beneficiary of an 11-yard fumble return in the fourth quarter.

Smith finished the game 19 of 24 for 124 yards with no turnovers. 

Tuel was 18 for 39 with 229 yards, a touchdown, and threw two interceptions.  Tuel was named the starter this week after the Bills have been plagued by injuries to Thad Lewis and E.J. Manuel.  They also have Matt Flynn, who is still learning the playbook.

The Chiefs go into their bye week still undefeated and will travel to Denver to take on the Broncos in week 11.

Buffalo (3-6) will travel to Pittsburgh next Sunday to take on the Steelers.
