FRIDAY, SEPT. 27
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The hungry Kansas City Chiefs defense must be salivating at the thought of Eli Manning and the turnover-prone New York Giants coming to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.
On their way to the Super Bowl last season, the 49ers couldn't solve one team: the Rams. St. Louis beat San Francisco once and the teams played to a tie, rare blemishes on the 49ers' record.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Kansas City Chiefs are all about fast starts these days.
The Pittsburgh Pirates and Cincinnati Reds punched their postseason tickets on Monday night, so all five National League spots have been secured. The only thing left to sort out is the winner of the NL Central. Over in the AL, three of the five berths remain up for grabs. A quick look at baseball's playoff picture:
SEATTLE - Another extra-inning loss left the Seattle Mariners with a familiar feeling.
Panthers 38, Giants 0
PHILADELPHIA - The look was strange: Andy Reid in all red on the visitors' sideline.
Auburn at LSU and Tennessee at Florida sounds like a big day in the Southeastern Conference.
The coach Philadelphians couldn't get rid of fast enough in January probably will get a big ovation from those same fans tonight.
MANHATTAN - Running for 41 yards on 23 carries wasn't going to cut it in Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder's offense.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Terry Francona likened the atmosphere at Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday to a playoff game in October. The crowd was into it. Every pitch mattered.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Peyton Manning again beat younger brother Eli, throwing two touchdown passes in leading the Denver Broncos past the New York Giants 41-23 on Sunday.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Led by a new quarterback in Alex Smith and a new coach in Andy Reid, the Kansas City Chiefs so far have looked nothing like the team that had the worst record in the NFL last season.
MANHATTAN - As Kansas State's mismatch with Massachusetts materialized on Saturday night, Jake Waters' moments were few and far between during his sub-par performance against the Minutemen.
