Game of the Year Has Arrived as the 9-0 Kansas City Chiefs Take on the 8-1 Denver Broncos

The time has finally come.

After a week off, the Kansas City Chiefs returned this week to prepare for one of the biggest regular season games in recent memory when they take on the 8-1 Denver Broncos. And it's a huge game for the Chiefs for so many reasons. 

First, a win in Denver puts the Chiefs in a two game lead with one more date with the Donkeys in KC to go along with two battles with the San Diego Chargers and three other tough games. But for the Chiefs, this game is for respect and to raise the eyebrows of all the viewers who tune into NBC to watch. To many, the Chiefs have been the luckiest team in the league with the soft schedule, playing back up quarterbacks, and getting key plays from somewhere not called the offense. And rightfully so, the football gods have been Chiefs fans this season so far, and the saying that "it's not who you play, but when you play them" cannot ring more true.

Kansas City Chiefs Improve to 6-0 as Arrowhead Stadium Breaks the Guiness World Record

The dream lives on.

The Kansas City Chiefs undefeated season continued Sunday as the team defeated the Oakland Raiders by a score of 24-7 in front of a packed sea of red at Arrowhead Stadium. Not only were the Chiefs trying to stay unbeaten but the fans of Arrowhead had a mission themselves going into Sunday. The Guinness Book of World Records were in attendance to see if Arrowhead Stadium could outlast the record set forth by the Seattle crowd at CenturyLink Field. And they did just that as the previous record of 136.6 decibels was surpassed today by the 137.5 decibels set today by Chiefs Nation.

Joining in with the crowd noise, this Chiefs defense continued to make more noise themselves in 2013. Today this unit racked up ten sacks (10!) on Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor while adding three interceptions, one which was returned for a touchdown by Husain Abdullah. There's no doubt how far and how fierce this group has become. Pro Bowl linebackers, an improved d-line, and a secondary full of guys who are just making plays. CB Marcus Cooper just might be the best move General Manager John Dorsey has made by acquiring him at the waiver wire before the regular season. Cooper has been all over the field every week and he added another interception today. At 6'1, he certainly matches up well with the bigger receivers in the league and there's no question defensive coordinator Bob Sutton will keep this kid on the field.

Kansas City Chiefs Remain Unbeaten After Stomping the New York Giants 31-7

The dream season continues for the Kansas City Chiefs as they remained unbeaten Sunday against the New York Giants to improve to 4-0. Only one other team has started a season 4-0 after winning just two games a year ago, Detroit in 1980, and the coaching staff has a lot to do with that. QB Alex Smith has led this group with leadership and before yesterday, was turnover-free during the first three games. Smith threw his first two interceptions of the season but once again the Chiefs stout defense rose to the occasion again, stuffing the GMEN all day aside from one big play.

Head coach Andy Reid has not started 4-0 since 2004, when he led his Philadelphia Eagles to a Super Bowl birth. And even Alex Smith couldn't foresee such a start. 

"To be honest, all we talked about all offseason was being 1-0," said Smith. "Just get the first one."

When asked if he ever thought his new team would start 4-0 Smith responded "No, to answer your question." Not only are they tied for first in the AFC West, but arguably could be in first in the NFC East, going 3-0 against that division so far. The Chiefs have been doing it in all three phases of the game, yesterday getting a big boost from the special teams.

Kansas City Chiefs Now 25/1 to Win Super Bowl XLVIII; Wagering Tips

By Sports Media 101

Currently, the NFL season is in full swing. Even though it is still in the early days, fans are already thinking about the Super Bowl which is to be held on the 2nd of February 2014. One way in which football fans are becoming involved already is placing futures bets on this competition. Futures bets are placed when bettors wish to predict the outcome of future events significantly sooner than the event will occur. The draw for many fans is the chance to end up with a sizable pay-out.

Sports book place the odds on certain teams winning the Super Bowl. These odds are continually modified as each week of the NFL season passes. The success or in some cases failure of certain teams figures in to these odds. When a team does better than anticipated, these odds improve. However, if they do worse than projected the odds become less likely to occur. A good example of this is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. When the season opened, their odds of winning the Super Bowl were 50 to 1. However, after a dismal beginning these odds have changed to 125 to 1. This means the chance of them winning is much less. Once futures bets are placed, they are not worried about until February.

Kansas City Chiefs Improve to 2-0 as They Sport the All Red Uniforms for the First Time in Franchise History

If you hadn't known already, it is a new era in Kansas City. The Kansas City Chiefs won their second game of the season in the home opener against the Dallas Cowboys and boy did they look good doing it too. For the first time in the franchise's history, the Chiefs left the traditional white pants in the locker room and sported the red on red uniforms to indicate that it truly is a new era. The idea was that of the players as they relayed the idea to head coach Andy Reid who spoke to GM John Dorsey and owner Clark Hunt about it. After they were all in favor of the idea, the Chiefs came out to a roar in front of over 76,000 screaming fans who loved what they saw and it continued on throughout the game.
