Unheralded group of Chiefs get redemption in Super Bowl hunt

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs have some of the biggest names in the NFL, from Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce to Chris Jones and JuJu Smith-Schuster, yet they're playing in their third Super Bowl in four years largely because they refused to give up on players only their most-passionate fans know about.

There's the quartet of rookie defensive backs that were picked on all season, but who largely shut down Ja'Marr Chase and the Bengals' other talented wide receivers while picking off Joe Burrow twice in the AFC championship game.

There's Skyy Moore, their fumble-prone rookie punt returner whose fumble cost them a win in Indianapolis in Week 3, but whose big return in the waning seconds Sunday night helped to set up the winning field goal in the 23-20 victory.
