2013 Record: 11-5
The 2013 season could not have started any better for the Chiefs. They won their first nine games of the year leading up to a week ten bye. It was Andy Reid’s first year with the team and he pressed all of the right buttons initially. A big factor in the Chiefs successful start was the play of quarterback Alex Smith. Smith, who came over in a trade with the 49ers, was a calming influence on the Chiefs offense. The undoubted MVP of the offense, however, was Jamaal Charles. Charles led the Kansas City offense in both rushing and receiving. Unfortunately the 2013 season will be remembered for the 28 point collapse in the first round of the playoffs to the Colts. The result sent shock waves around the league and left the Chiefs speechless.
Overall, the Chiefs have had a pretty quiet offseason following the 2013 season. To sure up a defense that struggled the second half of the year they selected defensive end from Auburn, Dee Ford, with the 23rd overall pick. Other notable draft picks include fifth round speedster from Oregon, De’Anthony Thomas and sixth round quarterback from Georgia, Aaron Murray. The 2014 schedule does the Chiefs no favors. They face constant contenders, New England, San Francisco, Seattle as well as the Broncos twice. The Chiefs believe they have enough to compete once again in a competitive AFC west.
