Kansas City Chiefs
After years of horrible seasons, poor performances, and multiple coaches, the Chiefs have completely rebuilt their foundation. It is now centered around former first pick and 49er, Alex Smith.
Thanks to Bob Costas following the Jovan Belcher tragedy, it’s apparent that there is no occasion in which a liberal-minded high-profile personality in society thinks that their opinion is unwelcome.
Matt Ryan stirred up a hornet’s nest with some late game comments the first time the Panthers faced the Falcons in Atlanta earlier this season. This weekend Ryan brings his team to Charlotte and there could be more story lines than just an 11-1 team squaring off against one that is 3-9.
When you are down and out and playing out the string, there is little to play for other than your job, but as far as Cam Newton is concerned, the Panthers have a lot more on the line. While it doesn’t seem like much, tying last season’s win mark would be a good way to take some of the bad taste the 2012 season will ultimately leave behind. Winning out would be a great step toward next year.
Not many people knew what to expect when the Chiefs hosted the Panthers on Sunday, because there was nothing to compare it to, but right from the opening drive there was a sense the home team was about to play their best game of the season. And they did, despite the horrific murder-suicide that took place a little more than 24-hours earlier.

Head coach Ron Rivera pretty much put the kibosh on running back Jonathan Stewart being available to play in Kansas City but with the ground game the way it has been all season, quarterback Cam Newton will more than likely lead the team in rushing once again. DeAngelo Williams wilkl be hard pressed to match him yard for yard.
It’s 3-8 against 1-10 this Sunday. This is an important game for the Panthers––a loss to the Chiefs would just about signal the end of Ron Rivera’s run as head coach. All things being equal, this is a winnable game for Carolina despite playing in Kansas City, where a lot of teams have had trouble doing just that.
The Panthers have had their fair share of injuries this season, so once again they have to reach into their bag of reserves and pluck out second-year tackle Sione Fua to take over for Ron Edwards, who is gone for the season with a dislocated elbow. Meanwhile, running back DeAngelo Williams is getting the reps while Jonathan Stewart nurses his second high ankle injury of the year.
Eleven. That is the number of Panthers on injured reserve–an average of one per game. Now, Ron Edwards is the latest to join the not-so-exclusive club. But through it all, head coach Ron Rivera has tried to hold his team together while doing his best to help his young quarterback get through the trials and tribulations of a sophomore campaign.
