Dwayne Bowe A No Show Against The Denver Broncos

After putting together record breaking numbers over the last seven games, you'd think the Kansas City Chiefs could expect some production from Dwayne Bowe against the Denver Broncos, right? 

Wrong. Bowe was shut out, zero yards on zero catches, by Denver Broncos' CB Champ Bailey. Bailey truly dominated Bowe today, with Matt Cassel only even targeting Bowe three times the entire game. 

This is in direct contrast to Bowe's first performance against the Broncos in 2010, where he caught 13 passes for 186 yards. Also, you can throw in two touchdowns there. Bowe was also targeted 18 times in the Chiefs/Broncos first meeting, six times more than he was this afternoon. 

After the game, Bowe said that the Broncos had "a nice little game plan" for him. Bowe said Denver obviously paid extra attention to him throughout the game, relative to their first meeting in November. 

So Chiefs fans, how do we judge Dwayne Bowe on this game? Shut down game plan to go along with a shut down corner good enough for you? It is for me.
