"I was kind of surprised," said safety Jon McGraw, who started in place of the injured Jarrad Page. "In the locker room, guys were excited, but on the plane ride home, there wasn’t a lot of chaos. There were a lot more smiles, but nothing crazy. I thought that was a good sign."
Of more importance is how the Chiefs handle this taste of success over the longer term, beginning with Sunday’s game against San Diego at Arrowhead Stadium. Their recent history suggests it will be some time before the Chiefs win another one.
Chiefs get to see how they can handle victory from KC Star
But get this: after six games the offensive numbers of the Redskins are better across the board than the Chiefs offensive numbers. Washington has thrown for more yards, run for more yards, provided better pass protection, picked up more yards per passing attempt and completed more passes than the Kansas City offense.
The only statistic where the Chiefs offense tops the Redskins is in touchdowns. They have scored eight, while the Chiefs have nine.
What’s the difference? Perspective. It’s always that way no matter what world or business we may exam. One team expected so much more; the Redskins haven’t used the term rebuilding, or process as Todd Haley likes to call what’s happened around the Chiefs.
Offense Continues Struggles … Tuesday Cup O’Chiefs from Bob Gretz
Tyler started two games this season at nose tackle before being replaced by Ron Edwards. Signs that the Chiefs could move Tyler came during Sunday’s 14-6 win over Washington.
Chiefs send Tyler to Panthers from KC Star
“Tank is a young defensive tackle who we think will fit in well with us,” Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said in a release. “He has good size and athletic ability and we are excited to have him join the Carolina Panthers.”
Carolina’s defensive line has been a revolving door ever since Maake Kemoeatu ruptured his Achilles on the first day of training camp.

kb_kcstar I'll have more on this tomorrow, but the Panthers had been scouting KC's (and others') D-linemen for a while. Had been interested in Dorsey.
kb_kcstar Tyler didn't seem to win over Haley, and he's obviously cheaper than Dorsey in a trade and salary. Too bad. Tank was one of my favorites.
kb_kcstar How about this? Suddenly, the Chiefs' chances of finishing second in AFC West are revived. I totally whiffed on thinking DEN would be awful.
Dull_Tomahawk: is Baird running the Chiefs? It seems we are just trading to trade. Why don't we try coaching some players, bitching about them doesn't work
