Matthew Stafford threw two of his four touchdown passes to Calvin Johnson and Detroit routed the Chiefs 48-3 Sunday, as the Chiefs start the season 0-2 with two 40+ point losses. Detroit broke its regular-season record set with a 44-0 win over the expansion Jacksonville Jaguars in 1995. Last week’s Chiefs loss was the worst in team history.
Running back Jamaal Charles was carted off the field midway through the first quarter with an injured left knee, hurting a team already without Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry and tight end Tony Moeaki for the rest of the season.
“Even when Charles wasn’t in the game, it appeared to me that we still had opportunities to make things happen and we weren’t able to do that,” Haley said.
