Who gets the game ball of the week for the Kansas City Chiefs victory over the Minnesota Vikings?

You could argue for Matt Cassel who completed 18-of-29 passes for 260 yards and a touchdown. Just as importantly, he didn't turn it over at all and helped the Chiefs convert 40 percent of their third down attempts. Plus he apparently had some sort of motivating halftime speech.

You could argue for Dwayne Bowe who finished with five receptions for 107 yards including a 52-yard touchdown. He was once again the Chiefs leading receiver.

You could argue for Tamba Hali and his two sacks, which makes four on the season. He seemed to consistently pressure Donovan McNabb.

You could argue for Brandon Carr, who stopped a Vikings drive in Chiefs territory with an interception. That could have been a 10-point swing but Carr picked Donovan McNabb.

And then there's Ryan Succop, who accounted for 15 of the Chiefs' 22 points on Sunday.

You could also argue for the Arrowhead faithful. I remember thinking this could be a quiet and small crowd considering the Chiefs' 0-3 start but this was one of the best crowds in a while, going over 70,000 on the paid attendance, which doesn't happen very often. Well done, Arrowhead.

So who gets it?
