Chargers Beat Chiefs As KC's Comeback Bid Falls Short

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs drove down the field and scored with 3:05 remaining in the game to get within three of the San Diego Chargers, 20-17.  It was a small chance, but the Chiefs get themselves alive. 

The Chiefs kicked off to the Chargers and came up with a huge fourth down stop to get the ball back with 1:26 remaining in the game.

QB Matt Cassel hit TE Leonard Pope with a huge 23-yard reception on the first play of the drive putting the Chiefs at the 42-yard line and giving them a chance to get into field goal range to tie the game.

On the next play, Cassel dropped back to pass looking to set up the screen to RB Dexter McCluster on the left side of the field. The ball was thrown slightly past McCluster and right into the arms of Chargers S Eric Weddle. Cassel never saw Weddle, who was sneaking in to defend the screen.

Interception. Ball game. Chiefs lose, 20-17.

What a way to end the game.
