At the start of the fourth quarter the Kansas City Chiefs were leading the Minnesota Vikings, 15-10, and they had a shot to take a two-score lead. Javier Arenas had just returned a punt 18 yards, one of several beneficial punt returns for Arenas, and the Chiefs started on their own 41-yard line.
The first play was a short pass to the right side of the field. Le'Ron McClain hauled it in and was promptly tackled.
2nd and 10 from the Chiefs 48 yard line. Cassel took the snap and dropped back to pass as a Vikings defender fell to the ground leaving Dwayne Bowe wide open down the left sideline. Cassel hit him and Bowe somehow got pas two Vikings defenders and rolled into the end zone.
The 0-3 Chiefs, took a two-score lead in the fourth quarter. This play had a 2010-feeling, where everything seemed to work in their favor. As he did earlier in the week, Bowe had a lot of good things to say about Cassel after the game.
For his part, Cassel credited the coaching staff for making an adjustment on the sidelines. He says they were looking at pictures of the Vikings defense and noticed the cornerback was jumping a few of their routes so they took a shot at going deep. Of course, it doesn't hurt when the defender falls down.
What made it even better is that Gus Johnson was calling the game for FOX. So I present to you a video of Gus Johnson calling Bowe's 52-yard touchdown.
