KANSAS CITY, Mo. – It’s the preseason for NFL officials, but some Chiefs players are concerned the level of penalties being called this preseason will affect play during the regular season.

Following a personal foul call Saturday against Chiefs linebacker Tanoh Kpassagnon, fellow linebacker and veteran Justin Houston questioned the call.

In this week’s 4th and 1 Podcast , 41 Action News sports anchor Dee Jackson and Chiefs reporters Tod Palmer and Nick Jacobs discuss the penalty and how the change in rules might have unintended consequences.


The crew also recaps the Chiefs’ 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears, though Nick says the Bears had more motivation to play hard and not to make too many conclusions based on the outcome of the game.
