'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The Steelers take on the Kansas City Chiefs and their NFL-worst 1-7 record Monday, and much of the focus will be on offensive coordinator Todd Haley facing his former team.

Haley was fired as the Chiefs coach after 13 games last season, a year after Kansas City went 10-6. Haley and Chiefs QB Matt Cassel had public disagreements, one after Cassel gave up early on a Haley play call and spiked the ball on a third-and-goal from the 6 against Minnesota. Haley and Ben Roethlisberger have had no such public spats.

“I think we're evolving constantly,” Roethlisberger said of the Steelers' offense. “There are things we're putting in midweek and taking out midweek. I think that's just the good balance and good working relationship that we all have, this offense, coach to player and player to coach. It's going well.”

No getting ahead

How bad have the Chiefs been in their first full season since Haley left? They have played 480 minutes of regulation this season without holding a lead. Their only win came when they beat the Saints on an overtime field goal. They were the first NFL team since the 1929 Buffalo Bisons to not lead in regulation in any of their first seven games.
