The Kansas City Chiefs bungled their way to yet another loss today, falling to the Baltimore Ravens 9-6.
In a game that saw the long-awaited appearance of backup QB Brady Quinn, the Chiefs couldn’t get out of their own way.
QB Matt Cassel had another bad day, throwing two interceptions before being taken to the locker room with an apparent head injury.
Quinn came in and sparked the offense. He threw what appeared to be a TD pass to WR Dwayne Bowe but the play was negated because of a penalty on WR Dexter McCluster.
That was the story all day for the Chiefs. Every time they did something right, they did two things wrong. The day included five fumbles (one of which occurred on the goal line), two interceptions and eight penalties for 60 yards.
The Chiefs came out trying to run the ball. It worked. They totaled 214 yards rushing and attempted just 18 passes.
Cassel finished the day 9/15 for 92 yards with two picks and no TDs. Quinn attempted three passes, completing them all for 32 yards.
The Chiefs move to 1-4.
One has to wonder if Cassel will ever start another game for the Chiefs. Should his injury keep him out next week and should Quinn play well, the Matt Cassel era in KC could officially be over.
