The Kansas City Chiefs spanked the St. Louis Rams Sunday to win the Governor’s Cup and to move to a 9-5 record.
The Chiefs, who suffered a humiliating loss at the hands of the San Diego Chargers a week ago, played lights out on the road against the Rams.
They were lef by QB Matt Cassel who did not miss a beat after having an emergency appendectomy just days ago. He made a number of nice throws and moved in the pocket well.
Running back Jamaal Charles led the way, carrying the ball 11 times for 126 yards and a touchdown.
The Chiefs defense also stepped up just a week after being dominated by the Chargers. Wallace Gilberry had 3 sacks and Kendrick Lewis had 2 interceptions to lead a Chiefs D that held the Rams offense to just 6 points and 224 yards of total offense.
The Chiefs now move to 9-5 and maintain their 1 game lead over the Chargers in the AFC West. If the Chiefs win their last two home games against the Titans and the Raiders, they will clinch their first playoff appearance since 2006.
