KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs fired defensive coordinator Bob Sutton on Tuesday, just two days after Kansas City failed to stop Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on what turned out to be the only possession of overtime in a crushing 37-31 playoff defeat.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid announced the firing in a brief statement. It came one day after he said he would evaluate all aspects of the team but declined to address Sutton's future specifically.

"Bob is a good football coach and a great person. He played an integral role in the success of our team over the last six seasons," Reid said. "I've said before that change can be a good thing for both parties, and I believe that is the case here for the Chiefs and Bob."
