The Chiefs beat the Bears 31-3 at Arrowhead to end the regular season with a 13-3 mark, but Sunday was all about running back Priest Holmes. He scored two touchdowns to break two NFL single-season records. His first touchdown gave the Chiefs a 6-0 lead in the second quarter and it gave him the NFL mark for single season rushing touchdowns with 26. He struck again in the third quarter on a two-yard run to make it 20-3. That was his 27th, which broke the record for the most touchdowns–of any kind—for a single season. It was also a big day for the Chiefs defense, which gave up 45 points in each of their last two losses and had dropped to 29th in total offense and 32nd against the run. On Sunday they held Anthony Thomas to just 61 yards and didn’t give up touchdown. The defense also penetrated to get four sacks—R-Kal Truluck had two of them—and pulled in two interceptions from Scott Fujita and Greg Wesley. The win gave Kansas City a 13-3 record, but it didn’t have any affect on the post season, as the Chiefs were already locked into the second seed in the AFC playoffs. They have a first round bye and will host at Arrowhead in two weeks.
