Andy Reid: Chiefs' Tyreek Hill similar to D-Jax | NFL.com

"I had DeSean Jackson and he kind of was the same," Reid explained. "When he was young he did all of the return stuff, we moved him all around the offense, he took snaps as a quarterback, we had him everywhere. He made it to the Pro Bowl in two different positions -- as a wide receiver and a returner." Hill is more dangerous as a runner and receiver with the ball in his hands, but he can't match Jackson's ability to consistently get open and haul in bombs deep down the field.

It's hard to imagine where the Chiefs would be without Hill, a rookie. They certainly wouldn't have won the AFC West and perhaps wouldn't even be in the playoffs. With his speed and big-play ability, Hill has added another dimension to their offense and their return game. Hill led the Chiefs in touchdowns with 12; no other Kansas City player had more than five.

Second-round pick Chris Jones has solidified Chiefs defense | AP

"Chris is really starting to come along," Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said. "He’s doing a great job of pushing the pocket — that’s huge. Some of those don’t go as sacks, but when you put a guard right back into the quarterback, hopefully that effects them a little bit."

With patience running out, Ryan Pace needs to think big this offseason | Chicago Tribune

The free-agent class isn't overflowing with talent when you consider how poor the 2013 draft class was, but Chiefs safety Eric Berry could be a target and there could be a trio of strong cornerbacks: Trumaine Johnson (Rams), A.J. Bouye (Texans) and Stephon Gilmore (Bills). Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell would also be intriguing.

"There’s only two (AFC) teams that can possibly beat New England: Pittsburgh and Kansas City. They (potentially) play each other," Colin Cowherd said on "Speak For Yourself" on Tuesday. "So New England only has to beat one good team. Not even a great team."

Tyreek Hill speeds to another AFC weekly award | Chiefs Digest

"Once you get through the first wave, you know you are gone because you have blockers ahead of you," Hill said after Kansas City’s 37-27 win Sunday. Hill drifted back to his own 5-yard line to field a 49-yard punt from Drew Kaser, and raced 95 yards for a touchdown. That play helped Hill capture the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week Award for the second time this season.

It would be an NFL fairytale come true it were to happen considering that Kansas City has one playoff win in 23 years and no Lombardi trophies since the 1969-70 season. Pepperidge Farm may not even remember that championship.
