Home or away, the Chiefs have had a tough time stopping the run. Kansas City dropped a 28-17 decision to Carolina in their home opener Sunday. Panthers starting running back Stephen Davis was injured and replaced by third-year back-up DeShaun Foster. Foster looked like a seasoned pro, racking up 174 yards and a touchdown. 71 of those yards came off one run in the fourth quarter. He scored on the next play from three yards out for the game’s final touchdown. The Carolina offense tested the Chiefs defense’s stamina with an drive to open the second half, that lasted 8:13. The Panthers moved the ball 80-yards in 16 plays resulting in a nine-yard touchdown pass to Kerry Colbert. The Chiefs had the ball for just 8:59 in the second half. Their only touchdown over the final 30 minutes was Eric Warfield’s interception, which he returned 43-yards for a score. The extra point from Lawrence Tynes gave Kansas City a 17-14 lead. Carolina didn’t stay down for long, scoring on the next possession and the Chiefs never led again. Priest Holmes was held to 66 yards rushing as the Chiefs dropped to 0-2.
