The Chiefs are 1-3 after the first quarter of the season. That’s how Todd Haley likes to break down the season, in four quarters, now maybe the Chiefs can build some momentum after beating the winless Minnesota Vikings.
Matt Cassel hit Dwayne Bowe for a 52-yard touchdown pass in the fourth-quarter and Ryan Succop straightened out his leg with 5 for 5 on FG attempts in a 22-17 win. (Succop’s field goals included a career-long 54-yarder in the second half, and his total matched Jan Stenerud and Nick Lowery for the single-game franchise record).
Bowe’s touchdown put the Chiefs up 22-10 as the defense held Donovan McNabb to 18 of 30 for 202 yards with two TDs and a pick. I thought the Chiefs were pretty solid against Adrian Peterson. He had 80 yards on 23 carries for just a 3.5 average per carry.
