Chiefs Stomp Seahawks 42-24
The Kansas City Chiefs stomped the Seattle Seahawks on the road Sunday to move to 7-4 on the season.
The Chiefs came out in attack mode, throwing the ball to Dwayne Bowe and Verran Tucker and scored 7 points on their very first drive of the game.
The Chiefs never fell behind.
Matt Cassel has a fantastic day throwing the ball, landing 22 of 32 for 233 yards and 4 touchdowns. His favorite target was WR Dwayne Bowe, who reeled in 13 catches for 170 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Jamaal Charles also got in on the action rushing for 173 yards on 22 carries and 1 touchdown.
On the defensive side of the ball the Chiefs were working with a skeleton crew. CB Brandon Flowers was forced to sit out so the Chiefs had to roll with little used Jackie Bates and Travis Daniels. The reserves did not disappoint, especially Daniels who had one interception and nearly picked off another on a critical 3rd down play.
More after the jump.
The victory moves the Chiefs to 7-4, which is officially more games than the team won in 2009 and 2008 combined.
Both the Raiders and the Broncos lost today. Denver now stands at 3-8 while the Raiders fell to 5-6.
With the losses of the Raiders and the Broncos, the San Diego Chargers now appear to be Kansas City’s chief competition for the AFC West crown. The 5-5 Chargers will face off against Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts tonight. If the Chargers fall, the Chiefs would enjoy a 2 game lead in the AFC West with only 5 games to play.
The Chiefs and Charger will meet in 2 weeks in San Diego in a matchup that could decide the division.
