The Kansas City Chiefs have won their first preseason game since Aug. 28, 2008.

That's what I was preparing to write. Instead, the Philadelphia Eagles scored with 23 seconds remaining to win the game 20-17.

Ouch.

Here's the good, the bad and the ugly. I'm off to the locker room to see what the players have to say.

Good

  • The Chiefs had five total sacks. Andy Studebaker had two, Demorrio Williams had two and Dion Gales had one.
  • The Chiefs offense turned the ball over on the first possession but the Chiefs defense didn't allow a touchdown after that first Eagles drive.
  • Tamba Hali pressured Kevin Kolb on several occasions.
  • Derrick Johnson pressured Kolb to force the incompletion on a big third down.
  • Matt Cassel had a four-yard touchdown pass to Dwayne Bowe
  • Kendrick Lewis had an interception and then returned it 27 yards setting up the Chiefs second touchdown.
  • The Chiefs defense as a whole. They had a very, very solid night overall.


Bad

  • Cassel was sacked and fumbled the ball (the Chiefs recovered).
  • LeSean McCoy ran 18 yards for the Eagles first touchdown on the second play from scrimmage.
  • On third and three, the Chiefs lined up in shotgun and Cassel threw an interception (tipped pass).


Ugly

  • Jamaal Charles fumbled the ball on the first play from scrimmage.
  • Dexter McCluster caught a pass putting the Chiefs at the Eagles 23-yard line only to have it called back because of a hold on Brandon Albert. They were moved back to the their own 40.
  • Most of Tyler Palko's passes
  • Cameron Sheffield had a scary looking neck injury and was carted off.
  • The Chiefs allowed the Eagles to 80 yards in the last two minutes to win the game.
