Chambers Dropped Pass Dooms the Chiefs

One play certainly doesn't define the game but, boy, Chris Chambers dropped pass towards the end of Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills was ultimately what doomed the Kansas City Chiefs.

"I know one play doesn't dictate the entire game but that was a huge play," Chambers told us after the game.

Facing a 3rd and 10 on the Bills 21 yard line, Cassel found Chambers several steps ahead of the Bills defender.  The ball hit him in the hands for what would have been a first down inside the 10 yard line.  There was just over 2:00 left in the game so it likely would have been the game winner.

He was well aware that it was a catchable ball and it should have been caught.  He even said, "It was a great call."

"I beat the guy really good," he explained. "The ball was kinda on me, low. I made a good effort and tried to scoop it up.  I made that play plenty of times before.  The ball was on my hands. It was a little low, but it's a play I can definitely make."

Bills head coach Perry Fewell said of Chambers' drop, "That was the game."

"Neither team looked great at times," Fewell continued. "Yes, he did beat the coverage but we were on the lucky end today. Sometimes, you have to have a little luck and we had a little luck today."

I think Chiefs QB Matt Cassel knew it was a catchable he threw to Chambers. He didn't throw his receiver under the bus, instead saying, "I felt that when I threw it and it came off, it was in the direction that I wanted to throw it.  Exactly where it hit him, I couldn't really see the end result.

"I'd have to go back and watch the film."
