Tyler Palko still the Chiefs starter

Tyler Palko is still the Chiefs starter but Todd Haley left the door open for Orton to get the start against the Bears.

“Tyler’s the starter. If we feel Kyle or Ricky gives us a better chance to win, then we surely would make that change.”

Haley also indicated that Orton would get some snaps with the first team offense this week in practice.

The Match-Up
Kansas City pulled out a thrilling 23-20 overtime victory last week vs. San Diego (10/31) on Monday Night Football. The win moved the Chiefs into a three-way tie for first place in the AFC West as the club became the first team to win four consecutive games after losing its first three since Pittsburgh achieved the feat in 2000. Miami is 0-7 on the season after suffering a 20-17 setback at the N.Y. Giants (10/30).

The Chiefs defense has been opportunistic over the last two games as the unit has produced 10 takeaways. That total is the most in the NFL over that time period. San Diego is next with six takeaways. Kansas City has intercepted eight passes in its last two outings.
