Why Kansas City Chiefs Started Winning, and Dolphins Continue to 'Suck for Luck'

Just a month ago, both the Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins were winless. The Dolphins were preparing to take on the San Diego Chargers, while the injury-riddled defending AFC West champion Chiefs had the winless Vikings coming to Arrowhead Stadium. 

That afternoon, the Chiefs would record their first victory of the season thanks to Matt Cassel connecting with Dwayne Bowe five times for 107 yards and a touchdown, as well as Tamba Hali's two sacks on Donovan McNabb

Meanwhile Miami would lose to San Diego, but lose much more, as quarterback Chad Henne would separate his non-throwing shoulder and get placed on injured reserve. 

Since then the Chiefs have been hot, as they've won four straight to go from 0-3 to 4-3. Where at first, the thought was that Todd Haley was on the hot seat and the Chiefs were thinking "Suck For Luck," now Haley is a Coach of the Year candidate and Kansas City is thinking of their second consecutive AFC West title. 

Meanwhile in Miami, Sparano's seat has only gotten hotter, and the cries of "Suck For Luck" have grown louder.

Let's take a look at why two teams who looked to be on the same track earlier this season are now going in different directions as they prepare to face one another on Sunday (1pm ET CBS).
