Dwayne Bowe Shines As The Chiefs Blow Out The Cardinals 31-13

Just one year removed from a suspension and leading the NFL in dropped passes, Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe showed up big time today, as he has over the last six games. Today against Arizona, Bowe caught two Matt Cassel passes for touchdowns. A pass from Cassel to Bowe across the middle of the field set up the first touchdown of the game.

And Bowe's second touchdown came on a similar play - Cassel to Bowe across the middle. Bowe YAC. Touchdown. It was Bowe's third game this season going over 100 yards receiving.

Bowe is back. Actually, Dwayne Bowe is better than ever. He was instrumental in the Kansas City Chiefs 31-13 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

5-0 at Arrowhead? Yes, please....

Matt Cassel was 15/24 for 193 yards passing and two touchdowns. He played an excellent game.

In addition to a great game by the Chiefs' quarterback and #1 wide receiver, the ground game of Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones added two touchdowns of their own. Actually, Thomas Jones added the two touchdowns but Jamaal Charles did much of the leg work getting there, rushing for nearly 100 yards.

The Chiefs' defense really did a great job of just keeping the Cardinals out of scoring range. Their only touchdown of the game came on the last play, which meant nothing. The score might as well have been 31-6.

The box score shows two simliar sets of stats actually. But the Chiefs made the conversions, both third down and scoring, when they needed to. And the Cardinals did not. QB Derek Anderson's lack of talent cost the Cardinals potentially a couple of touchdowns.

The Chiefs had their share of mistakes but didn't drop the needed first downs and touchdowns that the

Good win today by the Chiefs over an inferior opponent. WIth the Steelers blowing out the Raiders, the Chiefs will stay a top the AFC West for at least one more week.

Grade the Chiefs today in our poll. I think they get an A for shutting down a team they definitely should have shut down.
