The Chiefs finish the Arrowhead portion of their season at 2-6, the worse since 1971, as the Tennessee Titans win 26-14, scoring the last 13 points of the game.
Playing in front of a half-filled Arrowhead, Brodie Croyle connected on a pair of touchdown passes in the second, a 10 yard pass to Samie Parker and a 9 yard score to Kris Wilson to give the Chiefs a 14-10 halftime lead. Croyle would finish 25 of 43 for 217 yards with those two TD throws, but would also be picked off twice with the game on the line. It all fell apart late in the third quarter after John Carney kicked a 36 yard field goal to give the Chiefs 17-14, the Titans came right back in three plays to go up 20-17 after Vince Young hit Roydell Williams for their second touchdown of the day, a 41 yard touchdown pass. On the Chiefs first play of their next possession, Croyle got picked off and the Titans had the ball again and drove into position to kick a field goal to start the fourth quarter 23-17. After the Chiefs punted on their first series of the fourth, the Titans came back down and iced the game with another field goal.
Once the Chiefs fall behind, their milk the clock, field position battle type of offense becomes ineffective.
