Well this really feels good to get a win. The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Chicago Bears, on the road, 10-3 this afternoon. The difference in the game was a Tyler Palko to Dexter McCluster Hail Mary touchdown as the first half ended.
The other huge difference maker in this game was the Kansas City Chiefs' defense. Romeo Crennel's crew played an awesome game, consistently set up the offense with good field position and created a number of turnovers.
This was the Chiefs' first win in five games.
Joel will be back soon with more on this game. For now, here are some notes:
- QB Kyle Orton came in for one play. Got injured. And never returned.
- The Chiefs' defense had 7 (!) sacks on the day. Justin Houston had two and Tyson Jackson made a box score appearance with one.
- Kansas City was one of the few teams I've seen in the last few years actually have the discipline to not kick to Devin Hester all the time. How hard is this? Kick it short or kick it high. Not that difficult.
- As I said before, the Palko-McCluster Haily Mary was the difference in the game. Brian Urlacher and another Bears player tipped the ball directly to McCluster.
