Game Day! Not a lot of Kansas City Chiefs news this morning (must be the boring game of the week). Read up, head to the game, cheer on your Chiefs!

"I look at him kind of like my little brother," Jones says during a calmer moment, and he admits that sometimes means showing his teeth.

Charles is a young running back, and because of that, he needs guidance. He needed it his first two seasons, but for the first time, Charles has a mentor who’s here in part to look out for him, to teach him, to help him swat away distractions.

Jones shares wisdom with fellow running back Charles from KC Star

All those critics who've been carping about the way Todd Haley uses his running backs have all of a sudden fallen silent.

It's hard to argue with No. 1.

Chiefs will face Jags with NFL's top rushing game from The Washington Post

Bottom line

While the Chiefs have lost two straight games, the Jaguars are dealing with more significant issues. It’s too much to expect the Jaguars to go on the road and be competitive for long, much less win the game. The Chiefs, after two weeks on the road, will have all the comforts of home and with their strong running game should be able to eventually exert their will on the Jaguars. Prediction: Chiefs 27, Jaguars 16

Chiefs-Jaguars scouting report from KC Star

Kansas City’s defense will no doubt smother the run and force the Jags to prove they can win through the air, with a third string QB starting.  Unless the Jags can find ample running room and somehow shutdown the running game of the Chiefs, KC should cruise to victory in this contest.

Willie Lanier, regarded as one of the greatest middle linebackers in N.F.L. history, had that epiphany 43 years ago during his first season with the Kansas City Chiefs.

More significantly, Lanier said his mentality changed from one bent on destroying the opposition to one that ultimately looked out for his opponent.

Would You Consider Not Watching the N.F.L.? from The New York Times

Before the season began, I had lofty expectations for this team. I thought they could win a watered down AFC West. And right now they are on pace to do just that. Part of that belief stemmed from a very weak schedule after game five.

Still this is the Kansas City Chiefs we're talking about. The same team that hasn't won a playoff game at Arrowhead (old or new) since Joe Montana was the quarterback. How many years ago was that?

"In the NFL, you got to bring it every week. There's no pushovers," said receiver Tiquan Underwood, whose team will be on the road to face 3-2 Kansas City today. "There's a lot of parity in the league. You have to bring your A-game each and every week. The days you aren't, it's going to show."
