The Kansas City Chiefs have had their ups and downs over the last 24 years, but not since 1980 have they started 0-3—until now. Kansas City lost on a late 49-yard field goal from Houston kicker Kris Brown with :02 to lose 24-21 to the Texans at Arrowhead Stadium. A few questionable decisions cost Kansas City dearly in the loss. The first one came near the end of the second quarter after Houston kicked a field goal to cut the Chiefs’ lead to 7-3. Kansas City drove down the field to the Houston six yard line and opted to go for it on fourth down with two yards to go for a first down. Priest Holmes was stopped short and the Texans took over on downs with 1:52 to go in the half. Houston put together a 60-yard drive and cut the lead to 7-6 with a 49-yard field goal at the end of the half. The Chiefs drove 48 yards in eight plays and scored with a Trent Green to Chris Horn pass from six yards out to open the third quarter. On the next drive, the Chiefs forced a punt and again, found themselves deep in Houston territory when disaster struck for Kansas City. Trent Green’s pass to Tony Gonzalez was intercepted by Marcus Coleman, who ran 102 yards for a touchdown. A two-point conversion attempt was successful and the game was tied at 14. The two teams traded touchdowns in the fourth quarter leading up to Brown’s 49-yard game-winner. The loss was bitter-sweet for running back Priest Holmes, who rushed for 134 yards and passed Christian Okoye to become the Chiefs’ all-time leading rusher. Okoye rushed for 4,897 yards in his career in Kansas City.
