The Kansas City Chiefs will be represented by linebackers Tamba Hall and Derrick Johnson in the 2012 NFL Pro Bowl.

The Chiefs were eliminated from the playoffs with a tough overtime loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 16. Their whole season has been somewhat disappointing as they've dealt with injuries from the beginning. They lost running back Jamaal Charles before the season started and quarterback Matt Cassel went on Injured Reserve half way through the season as well. Still the Chiefs, after going on a four-game winning streak, had an outside shot at the playoffs and that's because a handful of players stepped up.

Two of those players are outside linebacker Tamba Hali and middle linebacker Derrick Johnson. Johnson leads the Chiefs in tackles with 126 and he has sacked the opposing quarterback twice this season. His 126 tackles is the 10th most in the league. Hall is fourth on the Chiefs defense with 62 but he has racked up 12 quarterback sacks this season, the most on the team. Halls' 12 sacks are good enough to rank him at No. 8 in the NFL.

Even though the Chiefs' season is over after Week 17, they have a bright future in the AFC West, especially with these two linebackers.
