Grade The Kansas City Chiefs Loss To The Houston Texans

Once again the Kansas City Chiefs take a good opponent down to the wire but can't get it done at the end. And once again the Chiefs did a lot of very good things en route to a loss.

The two guys we were most critical of lately -- QB Matt Cassel and WR Dwayne Bowe -- had big days and nearly propelled the Chiefs to victory.

Unfortunately, just like the Colts game, a loss is a loss.

But because the Chiefs did some really good things I'm having a hard time figuring out how I feel about this game. Yeah, the running game blew up and the Chiefs dominated on third downs. Those are really good things that will help you more often than not. But there's also 21 fourth quarter points and it's still an 0-2 road trip against two of the better teams in the AFC.

So how do you feel? Grade the Chiefs performance on Sunday against the Texans.
