KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The past few weeks, the Kansas City Chiefs have made Carlos Hyde look like Earl Campbell, Marlon Mack resemble Eric Dickerson and Kerryon Johnson look a whole lot like Barry Sanders.

No wonder they’ve lost their last two games, both of them at Arrowhead Stadium.

Injuries have mounted on the Chiefs’ defensive line, middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens also is hobbled and coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s switch from a 3-4 system to a 4-3 has failed to produce any noticeable improvement from a defense that has been lousy for most of Andy Reid’s tenure.
