MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Tyreek Hill's success with Kansas City made it easy to imagine the impact he'd make on this new team.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Just about the only negatives for the Chiefs in their 44-21 win Sunday in Arizona came from the trainer's tent.
Patrick Mahomes threw for 360 yards and five touchdowns without an interception, and his rebuilt wide receiver group hardly missed Tyreek Hill.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Ever since Marquez Valdes-Scantling signed a free-agent deal with the Chiefs this past offseason, the veteran wide receiver has had people asking him what he's doing right in life to earn such good fortune at quarterback.
DENVER (AP) — The AFC West no longer looks like such a cakewalk for the Kansas City Chiefs now that Tyreek Hill is dashing past defenders in Miami.
Not only did the Chiefs shockingly send Patrick Mahomes' top receiver to the Dolphins for a fistful of draft picks, but their rivals all made major moves in hopes of ending Kansas City's divisional dominance.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Tyreek Hill runs fast, talks fast, thinks fast. The standout wide receiver was not, however, a fast learner when he came to the Miami Dolphins.
The playbook may as well have been in a different language when Hill arrived in Miami from Kansas City this spring.
ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — Clyde Edwards-Helaire trotted down the long hill toward the Kansas City Chiefs' practice field, one day after he was placed on the physically unable to perform list, and the competition was on to be the starting running back this season.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — A basketball court is among the recreational offerings that Miami Dolphins players have at their disposal at team headquarters. Shooting is all that is allowed, for fear that anything else would expose players to injury.
ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — Two cornerstones of the Chiefs' four straight AFC title game appearances walked into training camp elsewhere this week, and Kansas City coach Andy Reid will be spending much of the next month figuring out how to replace them.
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (14-6)
CAMP SITE: St. Joseph, Missouri
LAST YEAR: Once again led by Patrick Mahomes and Co., the Chiefs became the first team in NFL history to host four consecutive AFC championship games.
MIAMI DOLPHINS (9-8)
CAMP SITE: Miami Gardens, Florida

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Tua Tagovailoa hit speedy wide receiver Tyreek Hill with two long completions during the Miami Dolphins' minicamp practice Thursday.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — The way the Miami Dolphins see things, they had the No. 1 pick in this year’s NFL draft. And they used it on the 165th pick in the 2016 draft.
It makes sense.
While most other general managers will spend the early rounds of the draft fretting over who to take and who might be available, Dolphins general manager Chris Grier can relax.

29, 30. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (14-6)

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The chances that the Kansas City Chiefs would spend Sunday night celebrating their record sixth straight AFC West title seemed slim last week when Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce headlined an outbreak of COVID-19 within the team.
The Buffalo Bills’ already beleaguered offensive line was dealt another blow when left guard Ike Boettger was carted off the field with a ruptured Achilles tendon in a big win against New England, and Jacksonville running back James Robinson left the Jaguars’ game against the New York Jets with an torn Achilles tendon.
