Take away the running back, the tight end and the best defensive back, and the pain becomes excruciating. When the Kansas City Chiefs fell on Philip Rivers' Halloween night fumble and created a three-way tie for the AFC West lead, however, the adversity of injuries to Jamaal Charles, Tony Moeaki and Eric Berry seemed possibly surmountable. But then quarterback Matt Cassel suffered a hand injury last week needing surgery, and now the road takes the Chiefs (4-5) to AFC East-leading New England (6-3)

Peyton Manning isn't the guy you want to bring up if you're looking for a little lively debate among the folks who pick the Associated Press' All-Pro football team. All 50 of them think he's the best quarterback in the NFL this season. And it's hard to disagree when you consider Manning's league-record 55 touchdown passes and 5,477 yards in leading the Broncos to a 13-3 record and the top overall seed in the AFC playoffs. He made first team All-Pro for the seventh time, tying Hall of Famer Otto Graham for the most by a quarterback.

Welcome to Stunned Diego. Not even the most optimistic of Chargers could have realistically predicted what unfolded Sunday, the final day of the NFL regular season, when left-for-dead San Diego somehow found its way into the playoffs. A month ago, the Chargers were 5-7 and roundly written off. Then came a four-game winning streak culminated by a season sweep of the Chiefs. "It's been an unreal ride this year," Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said in a postgame interview with CBS, his voice cracking.

It was not a pretty sight Sunday, when fans of the Kansas City Chiefs cheered as their team's quarterback, Matt Cassell, had to leave the game against the Baltimore Ravens because of head injury. Cassel was hurt when he was hit by the Ravens' Haloti Ngata while completing a pass in the fourth quarter of the Chiefs' 9-6 loss at Kansas City, Mo. Cassel remained prone on the ground after being hit, and fans cheered the sight of the injured Cassel, who has not played that well for the Chiefs the last two seasons.

Texas nearly got caught trying to outsmart Nebraska, but the Longhorns figured things out and pulled off a 28-25 victory when Jamaal Charles ran for 213 of his career-high 290 yards and three touchdowns in the fourth quarter Saturday at Austin, Texas. The Longhorns passed 30 times and ran 26 in the first three quarters, even though Nebraska entered the game ranked No. 115 out of 119 teams against the run.

The Kansas City Chiefs are displaying a defending champion's resilience. The San Diego Chargers are being labeled as weak-minded, lacking intestinal fortitude and — yes — soft. Sure, the Chargers are 4-2 and possess a one-game lead over the Chiefs (3-3) in the AFC West, but as quarterback Philip Rivers leads his team into always-tough Arrowhead Stadium for a Monday night game, rallying Kansas City is ready to push back. The change in momentum actually started Sept.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Thanks to Central Florida, it might be a while before Texas accepts another offer to open someone's stadium. Jamaal Charles scored on a 46-yard run Saturday to clinch a 35-32 victory for Texas, whose first trip to Florida in 34 years was anything but smooth. The jaunt started with a long delay at the Austin airport Friday; then one of the team buses broke down in Orlando.
