Dance Party's Over For The Chiefs, Crennel Says from KC Star
Coach Romeo Crennel said he wasn't sure whether playing on national TV caused the Chiefs to turn into entertainers as well as football players.
"I have no idea," Crennel said. "It was a surprise to me to see some of those celebrations, per se. The rules are explicit about no celebrating, particularly group celebrations. You cannot have those. Our guys, they know the rules and they should not have done it. I will talk to my players about that, and I don't expect it to happen again."
Chiefs vs Bengals - Military Appreciation Day from The Mothership
Sunday's contest marks the 27th regular season meeting between Kansas City and Cincinnati, with both squads splitting the first 26 matchups in the series.
The Bengals have won the last two games and three of the last four. Prior to the last two games in 2008 and 2009, the teams alternated victories in the previous eight contests.
Kansas City is 6-6 against Cincinnati at Arrowhead Stadium and was 2-0 vs. the Bengals in matchups at Municipal Stadium.
"Aw, hell nah, there goes that horse. I don't f--- with that horse. That horse," Berry told Chiefs teammates. "I gotta wait 'til that horse pass. I don't mess with horses bro, straight up. He might come over and throw a tantrum."
Any doubts about Berry's sincerity are erased later, when he abruptly exits a team huddle when that woman on the horse returns to his sight line.

The Chiefs have made the playoffs 11 times since that fateful 1983 draft. They have three wins, two coming in 1993 before losing to the Buffalo Bills in the AFC title game. They also beat the Raiders in the first round in 1991.
The other nine times? One and done, including the last six times they made the playoffs.
Currently, the Chiefs are tied with Jacksonville at 1-8 in the Matt Barkley (left) sweepstakes. Or is it the Geno Smith sweepstakes? Tyler Wilson?
Whoever it is, you know the Chiefs will muck it up.

Monday Night Football Recap: Steel City Bore from Esquire
It's a classic Week 10 storyline. Outcome: An injured quarterback. The game? A mostly forgettable, just-barely win for an elite franchise against a one-win opponent with a chip on its shoulder. Except for the chip-on-the-shoulder part. The Chiefs actually seemed pretty jolly. Clearly they have enough hotel-free time to figure out group celebrations, such as they one they fell into after a penalty nullified a touchdown, an end-zone gathering that resembled the dance sequence between the dong-laden Mark Walhberg and a joyous John C. Reilly in Boogie Nights.
Local Store Gives Snapshot Of Fan Unrest from The Examiner
The group, which was formed to protest the current regime calling the shots at Arrowhead, has pooled money to fly banners over the stadium during games asking for the firing of general manager Scott Pioli and the benching of quarterback Matt Cassel. On Sunday, a segment of fans are planning to enter Arrowhead wearing black shirts as part of a blackout to display their displeasure with the franchise.
Kilmer makes it clear that he's not officially involved with SOC, but it was his store that printed the shirts.
Collier: Blunders All Around Take Center Stage from The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
They were beating the Steelers; that was the No. 1 answer on the board, jumping ahead 10-0.
They were potentially ruining a season other than their own, thumping Ben Roethlisberger into a hospital visit.
They were unleashing a season's worth of unused celebration dances at the most ridiculous times.
They were deliberately erecting the framework of the first loss on Monday night by the home team in Pittsburgh in more than 20 years.
But they're not the Chiefs for nothin'.
Tough Times In Pittsburgh from The New York Times
It is little consolation for Steelers fans, but they could be Chiefs fans. Consider rooting for that team that not only lost, but was penalized for excessive celebration on a touchdown that did not count. In Kansas City, the season has been so gruesome, it has become an event to almost win a game, as Sam Mellinger writes in The Kansas City Star.
Top 5 Sports Stories from The Huffington Post
The Kansas City Chiefs lead the league in one category, dancing. Last night they set some kind of record. They got penalized for celebrating a touchdown that wasn't. Check out the third play. The Chiefs thought they took the lead 16-10 and they were flagged 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct. Replay overturned the touchdown, but not the penalty. And you wonder why the Chiefs are 1-8?
Steelers Secure 16-13 Overtime Win Despite Sloppy Play Against Chiefs from CBS Pittsburgh
On a rainy night in Pittsburgh, fans were excited to see their team go head to head in a nationally-televised Monday Night Football event. Instead of being inspirational, the Pittsburgh Steelers saw the Kansas City Chiefs put up one of the best fights of their 1-7 season. Dropped passes, fumbles and two defenses that were decidedly angry became a theme for the night.
AFC West Stock Watch from ESPN
FallingChiefs' discipline: Add a lack of discipline and a lack of in-game intelligence to a laundry list of Kansas City's problems. The Chiefs were undisciplined and made silly mistakes in a loss at Pittsburgh. Getting a 15-yard celebration penalty after a touchdown that was overturned was inexcusable.
