The Morning Fix: Chiefs News From Around The Web

A team of extreme streaks, the 2011 Chiefs opened the season with three straight losses only to regain control of first place by the start of November thanks to a four game winning streak.

The season flipped in only a month, but flipped once more after a winless November. It was a month the Chiefs were able to produce just one touchdown.

On Sunday, Kansas City will make its first appearance at the new MetLife Stadium since the facility opened in 2010. The Chiefs will play their second-consecutive road game when the club faces the N.Y. Jets on Dec. 11. Kansas City is coming off of a thrilling 10-3 victory at Chicago (12/4) that saw the Chiefs defense continually make momentum changing plays throughout the contest. The Jets are coming off a 34-19 win at Washington (12/4) to improve their record to 7-5. In that game, the Jets used a 21-point fourth quarter to overcome a 13-10 deficit entering the final 15 minutes.

“It’s not a good feeling when you see your star tailback go down with a knee injury,” Smith said. “It’s part of the game. We just have to keep our fingers crossed.”

The good news is that Forte’s injury wasn’t worse. The recovery time is projected at two-to-four weeks. If the Bears qualify for the playoffs, both Cutler and Forte could be back.

A former community relations director for the Kansas City Chiefs claims the NFL team fired her because she is older than 40, and that she was axed as part of a pattern of age discrimination by Chiefs executives, including president Clark Hunt and general manager Scott Pioli.

Brenda Sniezek says she worked for the Chiefs from March 1982 until Jan. 26, 2011. She was 51 when she was laid off and replaced by a younger employee.
