Kansas City Chiefs – 2014 Tickets, Preview, and Schedule
Kansas City Chiefs tickets went out the gate fast as football fans in Kansas City loved what they got in 2013. One year after finishing with two wins in a season, Andy Reid had the Kansas City Chiefs at 9-0, with Super Bowl talk spinning their heads. It was perhaps the biggest turnaround in NFL history. Now comes the hard part: Building on the success in the face of a much tougher schedule and some significant roster changes.
Quarterback Alex Smith provides stability and a steady hand at the helm again in 2014. Not spectacular, Smith is an excellent game manager who won’t turn the ball over and will occasionally make the big play. Jamaal Charles found new life in Reid’s offensive system, working from behind the line and as a receiver as well. The Chiefs should benefit mightily in the passing game from the return of Anthony Fasano and Travis Kelce. Dwayne Bowe, who had his worst season as a pro in 2013, is rumored to have begun working out in earnest with both a trainer and a lifestyle coach to get back to form.
The Chiefs defense begins in the middle with a strong pass rush, provided by Dontari Poe. Keeping Justin Houston and Tamba Hali healthy all season will be key for improving the overall defense. First Round draft choice Dee Ford could also see plenty of playing time in the rotation.
The Kansas City Chiefs will have to stay healthy and improve in every area if they want to improve or even match the 11 wins of last season. The 2014 Chiefs schedule is ranked among the Top 10 toughest schedules in the NFL in 2014. Beside the Denver Broncos twice, the Chiefs will play the NFC West with Seattle, San Francisco, and Arizona all contenders for the post-season. The Patriots on Monday Night Football in Week 4 will be a strong test.
