December 8, 2013
The Chiefs (10-3) broke their three-game skid by doing what they did so well during their 9-0 start — beat up on a bad team.

Chiefs try to regroup after three-game skid
December 3, 2013
The line of demarcation might as well be the Kansas City Chiefs’ bye week. In the nine weeks prior to taking some time off, the Chiefs rolled to a 9-0 record, an unimaginable turnaround from a 2-14 finish a year ago.
