Chiefs Vs. Falcons Preseason: The Last Time They Played

The last time the Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons played it wasn't pretty.

Back on Sept. 21, 2008 in the Georgia Done, the Falcons jumped out to a 24-0 lead -- remember Tyler Thigpen starting this game? -- and ended up winning the game 38-14.

It was one of those confirmations that the Chiefs weren't very good at the time. Here's what Chris had to say about the game nearly two years ago:

The offense looked pathetic but at least this game helped re-focus the problem on the QB.

I don't know what else to say anymore.  I guess you could say the Chiefs made some progress from last week so maybe that was rock bottom?

Little did he know.

Things will be much different this time around -- at least with the players on the field. Gone is Larry Johnson, the leading rusher in that game, and back is Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones. Gone is Tyler Thigpen, the leading passer in that game, and in is Matt Cassel. And then there's the leading receiver, Dwayne Bowe, who very well could be the leading receiver once again.

Here's the box score from that game. Anything catch your eye...other than the third quarterback being the starter?
