The Kansas City Chiefs started slow again in Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. Shortly in to the second quarter, the Chiefs found themselves down 17-0 already and Kansas City fans were having flash backs to the first couple games of the year when they were blown out by Buffalo and Detroit. Then the Chiefs offense decided to get the ball to their All-Pro wide receiver Dwayne Bowe. Cassel threw a quick slant pass to Bowe and then watched him show off his skills as he juked out the safety and stiff armed another defender before out running the rest of the Colts defense to the end zone. From that point on the Chiefs out scored the Colts 28-7 for the remainder of the game as they went on to win 28-24.
Matt Cassel had his third straight game with a passer rating over 100 and Dwayne Bowe and Steve Breaston caught two touchdown passes each. The offense seemed to figure out how to move the ball effectively. Jackie Battle ran for 119 yards in just 19 carries which gave the Chiefs running game success that it has been lacking since Jamaal Charles went out with a torn ACL. Even though the defense gave up a quick 21 points to start the game, they also settled in and found their own rythm and held the Colts offense scoreless in the second half.
The Kansas City Chiefs won their second consecutive game with the 28-24 victory. Even after losing three critcal players (Jamaal Charles, Eric Berry, Tony Moeki) that led the Chiefs to an AFC West championship, the team is showing they can still win. The question is, how good are the Chiefs? The three teams that have beat the KC Chiefs are a combined 12-2 and the two teams the Chiefs have beat are a combined 1-9. There is still a lot to prove for Kansas City as they go into a bye week. After the bye they will travel to Oakland (3-2) and that should give Chiefs fan more perspective on what to expect the rest of the season.
