KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Alex Smith and Jamaal Charles make the headlines for the Kansas City Chiefs and rightfully so. The quarterback and running back are the biggest names on one of the NFL's surprise teams.
However, it's been a cast of misfits that has fueled the Chiefs' run toward the playoffs.
Take safety Quintin Demps, who three years ago was playing in the UFL. Not only does he have three interceptions, he also returned a kickoff for a touchdown last Sunday against Washington.
Or try Sean McGrath, who was plucked off waivers before the season. The former Henderson State _ yes, Henderson State _ standout has been the team's most reliable tight end.
Big names? Surely not. But they've been the unsung heroes leading a dramatic turnaround.
