Eric Winston: Chiefs Needed To Get A 'W'

The Kansas City Chiefs needed a win. Just ask Eric Winston. The team's right tackle changed teams this offseason after being released by the Houston Texans, a team on the rise and currently sitting at 3-0. So the tackle knows the feeling of being down 0-2 with the Chiefs and wishing his franchise was in a different position.

The Chiefs took down the New Orleans Saints on the road and now the franchise seems energized. After being down 24-6 at one point in the game, the Chiefs came back to tie and then win in overtime. It's the sort of momentum-changing event that can define a season early on.

"Obviously we needed to get a 'W'," said Winston. "We needed to find a way to get a win and we got it. And now we're playing for first place. That's how much fun this league is and with the division games, obviously they're so important. If you win those you're probably going to make the playoffs. It's exciting. Obviously, San Diego is a tough team, they've been playing well already this year and we've got to find a way to get another ‘W' again this week."

The Chiefs can play for first place -- or at least a share of it this week -- against the Chargers and it will be important to come back home and make a statement. With a win, the Chiefs are even and rising with two solid victories. If not, they're back to 1-3 and forced to face the Ravens in week five.

Well I think any time you have a win, especially like that, in a hostile place against a good team with a lot of talent, just in the way we did it, I think you should have a lot of confidence and I think it should show what this team can do," said Winston. "Now it's a matter of carrying this team forward."

Kansas City Chiefs Announce Practice Squad Changes

The Kansas City Chiefs put offensive lineman Luke Patterson on the practice squad injured list and signed wide receiver Junior Hemingway to the practice squad. Both moves were announced Friday.

Patterson was an undrafted free agent signee in 2011 after a college career with the Texas A&M Aggies. The 6'4, 295-pound lineman spent all of last season on the Chiefs' practice squad.

Hemingway, a 6'1, 222-pound receiver, was a seventh-round draft pick from the Michigan Wolverines in 2012 after winning the 2012 Sugar Bowl MVP. He was released on Aug. 31 and signed to the practice squad. Arrowhead Pride pointed out this is the third week in a row Hemingway has been signed and released from the practice squad.

The Chiefs kick off Sunday against the New Orleans Saints at noon CT on CBS.

Romeo Crennel Insists On Remaining As Chiefs' Head Coach And Defensive Coordinator

After two blowout losses to start the 2012 NFL season, it's good to know that the Kansas City Chiefs plan on keeping things the same. The announcement today from Arrowhead Stadium that head coach Romeo Crennel is going to serve in dual roles as the defensive coordinator as well will likely go over like a lead balloon in a town ready for heads to roll.

Articles excoriating the team's front office and coaching staff have been printed all over today as the team reeled from yet another frustrating loss at the hands of the Buffalo Bills. Chan Gailey's team whipped them on all fronts, the same description that could have been used to describe the previous week's shellacking at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons.

It's been a miserable season thus far, so it was assumed that perhaps this was the sort of loss to inspire change. Alas, the Chiefs are not panicking. In fact, they're not even reacting. The song will play on in week three with the same set-up against the New Orleans Saints.
