The Chiefs found a way to bounce back after a heartbreaking loss last week at Houston, but putting this game away in the fourth quarter, handing the Jacksonville Jaguars a 42-20 loss Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium.
Derrick Johnson returned an interception for a touchdown (the second by the Chiefs defense this season) and Matt Cassel had another solid game throwing two touchdowns to Dwayne Bowe, plus, the Chiefs rushed for 236 yards and three touchdowns.
Jacksonville’s Todd Bouman, who was signed this week after David Garrard sustained a concussion and backup Trent Edwards hurt his thumb in a loss on Monday night to Tennessee, made the emergency start and kept the Jags in the game until Johnson made the pick and went in 15 yards, opening up a one point lead to 28-20.
Bouman, who was 18 for 34 for 222 yards and had two TDs, but also got picked off late in the game by Eric Berry who brought the ball back to the 12 yard line. That’s when Jackie Battle scored three plays later on a 1-yard run to ice the game.
Up 28-20 in the fourth, Cassel found Bowe in the end zone who made a great toe-tapping catch in the end zone which build the lead to 15 late in the fourth. This was Bowe’s second week in a row with two touchdown catches. He’s bounced back after dropping a TD pass in Indianapolis that would have put the Chiefs up in that game.
The Chiefs now improve to 4-2 on the year.
