It's been a very bad 24 hours for the defending AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs, who got slaughtered at home by Buffalo, 41-7. And it's getting worse as Monday the team learned that second-year safety Eric Berry would miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL.

That's according to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network who accurately describes the injury as "a big blow" -- in fact, that's probably an understatement.

Berry, a thumper who was taken with a top-five pick in the 2010 NFL Draft flashed moments of brilliance last season and was expected to make the leap into the upper echelon of NFL safeties in 2011.

Nick Wright of 610 Sports has a pretty good GIF of the play in which he believes Berry tore his ACL and, um, it's kind of awkward because that's a dirty tackle.

Berry's the second major player for the Chiefs to go down with a season-ending ACL injury -- tight end Tony Moeaki was lost after tearing up knee in the preseason as well.

Moeaki and Berry were two players expected to break out in Kansas City's 2011 bid to defend their division title and are now lost for the year. It's obviously still to early to write off the Chiefs chances, but things are trending in a foreboding manner with respect to their ability to succeed for a second-straight season.

Oh, and Brinson you're a clown.  You gonna hate on the Bills the rest of your life?  Look, I know you'll be eternally bitter cause Buffalo continually dismantled your home-town heroes when you grew up.  So you feel it's your life's mission to put them down every chance you get.  I understand a guy like Marino constantly hating on the Bills - if you lost that many times to a team you'd be bitter too.  But what's your excuse?  Bad childhood memories?  Grow up you clown.

Ironic how the "cheap shot" cry comes out from the home crowd when a player gets injured.  Doesn't matter what sport...could be hockey, could be football.  Same or similar hit happens 100 times and nothing is said.  The one time somebody gets injured it's "cheap" right away by the fans of that team.  Break down a game on film sometime geniuses and count how many times a similar hit happens during the course of ANY game.  Guarantee the Chiefs threw or attempted to throw a block like that against the Bills on Sunday.  GUARNTEED.  Watch the film  and prove me wrong....go ahead.  As much as the "fake coaches" on here like to provide their "wisdom" - you're FOS.  Seems like the KC fans are a little bitter that they got smacked around on Sunday and then end up taking a double-whammy.

Fact is it was a legal hit.  That's why a penalty wasn't called.  Just because your pretty boy got whooped doesn't mean it's cheap.  Gailey is moulding this team to play and beat the big boys in the AFC.  You play in a division with the Pat's and Jets you better have tough players who aren't afraid to smack somebody around as well as take a smack.  If Gailey wants our WR's to punish the opposing DB's I'm all for it.  That's called hard-nosed football.  Maybe there was a reason your pretty boy Chiefs got smacked around in the Wildcard Game last year.  Weren't tough enough.  Obviously weren't tough enough on Sunday either.  Stop whining like a bunch of babies.... never like to see a guy get hurt, but saying Stevie is cheap is bull.  Somethng tells me he's not afraid of the consequences either...
