Palmer: Chiefs Win 'Big Surprise'

You have to remember; the last time the Kansas City Chiefs won a regular season game was in Week 7 of last year!  The Broncos boasted the NFL's highest scoring offense heading into the contest, but ran into a roadblock against the hometown Chiefs.  The Chiefs defense continually stifled Jay Cutler and the Broncos offense, and forced four big turnovers on the day. 

What was most impressive was head coach Herm Edwards commitment to getting back to solid and simple fundamental football, particularly on offense.  The Chiefs would "live or die" in this football game by the legs of running back Larry Johnson.  Johnson was the workhorse for the Chiefs, carrying the football 28 times for 198 yards and 2 touchdowns.

I give Herman Edwards a lot of credit because it is easy to constantly try and re-invent the wheel when a football team is struggling.  I think coaches sometimes try to invent new plays or schemes to fix some of the blunders that have been occurring in the past, rather than execute the basics.

TSN: Chiefs Acquire New Lease on Life

When trying to heal a dying patient, a complicated prescription is sometimes in order.

You don't have to tell that to the Kansas City Chiefs, who managed to end those murmurs of 0-16 by coming up with an intricate formula to down the previously unbeaten Denver Broncos on Sunday.

The first giant horse pill wears the No. 11 and goes by the name of Damon Huard. The Chiefs had been mighty resistant to playing Huard, even dating back to 2006 when they stuck a woozy Trent Green back in the lineup ahead of the effective but aging journeyman. Last year, and again at the beginning of this one, Kansas City tried to throw Brodie Croyle and Tyler Thigpen in the lineup in the hopes of identifying their quarterback of the future.

Only problem with that is that Brodie Croyle and Tyler Thigpen aren't very good football players, and Huard, despite his advancing age (35) and physical shortcomings, was and is the best quarterback on the Kansas City roster.

Huard kept the Denver defense honest on Sunday by completing 21-of-28 passes for 160 yards with a touchdown, no turnovers, and just one sack absorbed. During Herm Edwards' tenure, the Chiefs are now 10-10 in games that Huard starts. The team's other quarterbacks are a combined 4-13, and all four of those wins are in St. Louis with Green. Go figure.

Tucker: Edwards: Snapping losing streak good for everybody



Going almost a year without winning can play tricks on a man's mind. Just ask coach Herm Edwards, who had trouble sleeping Sunday night after his Kansas City Chiefs halted a franchise-record 12-game losing streak with a 33-19 victory over Denver.

"I kept asking my wife about 1 o'clock, 'We won, right?'" Edwards said Tuesday. "She said, 'Yeah, you won, honey.'"

Their first victory since Oct. 21, 2007, was especially important for the raft of young players on the roster of the rebuilding Chiefs, Edwards said. Coaches had noted that many of the rookies were beginning to doubt whether they even belonged in the NFL after an 0-3 start that included back-to-back blowout losses to Oakland and Atlanta.

"I think they were questioning themselves," Edwards said. "They were questioning their talent. You can't question that. The way you overcome that, you've got to just keep playing. Just play with energy. Just keep going fast. Just keep playing hard."

Two-time Pro Bowler Larry Johnson ran for 198 yards, but most encouraging for Kansas City's long-term picture was the energy and verve displayed by rookies. Two were given game balls. Dantrell Savage had a 51-yard kickoff return that swung the fourth-quarter momentum back to Kansas City, and cornerback Brandon Carr played well against Denver's high-powered passing attack.

Four Downs: Johnson, Chiefs 'back to doing what we do best'

Larry Johnson, center, scored two touchdowns and rushed for 198 yards in the Chiefs' first win of the season on Sunday.

What a long, strange trip it's been. Attribute that to the Grateful Dead.

The Houston Texans endured a long, strange trip of their own. It has come to an end and they are grateful but their season may be, if not dead, mortally wounded.

They will at last play at home, the wandering and 0-3 Texans. They'll host the NFL's latest home opener since 2001 when terrorist attacks caused the postponement of a week of the league's schedule and pushed the first home date for four teams to the Oct. 7-8 weekend. The Texans' originally scheduled home date with the Baltimore Ravens on Sept. 14 fell victim to Hurricane Gustav's blitz of the Gulf Coast.

The Texans, the first team since the 1991 Phoenix Cardinals to play three consecutive road games to start the season, return to Reliant Stadium on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. The game will be played with the building's damaged roof open.Shifting the Ravens game and their bye week, also the NFL's earliest since 2001, give the Texans other schedule oddities. They'll be the first team since the 1990 Cleveland Browns to play three consecutive road games and four consecutive home games in the same season.

ESPN: Gonzalez questions Chiefs coaches after falling 3 yards shy of receiving mark

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez catches a Damon Huard ...
A disappointed Tony Gonzalez wants to know why Kansas City coaches refused to throw a short pass his way in the final minutes Sunday, leaving him 3 yards short of the career tight end receiving record.

Gonzalez

Gonzalez did have a 10-yard touchdown catch in a 33-19 victory over Denver that snapped the Chiefs' 12-game losing streak. But he wanted to set the receiving record in front of family and fans at Arrowhead Stadium.

"I had my family out there. I wanted to do it in front of the fans, in a home game," Gonzalez said. "It would have been a great way to do it. I'm disappointed by that, for whatever reason my number wasn't called at times."

Coach Herm Edwards said the Chiefs didn't want to take a chance by throwing the ball late in the game.

"After it was a two-possession game, we never got the ball back," Edwards said.

Gonzalez likely will get the record this week at Carolina, far from the fans who chanted "Ton-Y, Ton-Y" when he lay on the ground, the wind knocked out of him, after making the touchdown catch that stretched the NFL TD record for tight ends to 68.

Chiefs buck their losing trend

Broncos defenders scrambled all afternoon trying to stop the Chiefs' Larry Johnson, but they couldn't. Johnson rushed for 198 yards and two touchdowns.

It didn't seem like 11 months to Brian Waters since Kansas City's last victory.

"It seemed like 10 years," said the veteran left guard, grinning ear to ear. "It's a sigh of relief to be able to have a little bit of joy in your life."

Larry Johnson ran for 198 yards and two touchdowns to lead the previously winless Chiefs past the previously unbeaten Denver Broncos, 33-19, yesterday at Arrowhead Stadium, snapping a franchise-record 12-game losing streak.

The Chiefs had not won since Oct. 21, 2007. Until Nick Novak kicked the first of his three field goals in the first quarter, they hadn't even held a lead since halftime against Tennessee Dec. 16 - a span of 22 quarters.

The Broncos (3-1) put up numbers befitting the highest-scoring team in the league. Jay Cutler threw for 361 yards, including a 16-yard touchdown to Brandon Marshall. But he also was intercepted twice, and the Broncos gave up two fumbles.

NFL Scores Week 4: Larry Johnson Runs Kansas City Chiefs Over Denver Broncos for First Win

Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson (L) is brought ...

Nick Novak gave the Chiefs a 6-0 lead after the first quarter with a  pair of field goals but Jay Cutler put the Broncos in front early in the second with a 16-yard toss to Brandon Marshall for a 7-6 advantage. Kansas City then turned to Johnson deep in Denver territory and he punched it in from a yard out to give the Chiefs a 13-7 lead.

Gonzalez to break NFL's tight end receiving record

Something a fresh-faced NFL rookie said in 1997 caused a crusty old veteran to "go nuts."

"I told them I didn't think you had to be a violent person to play football," recalled Tony Gonzalez. "He said, 'What are you talking about? Of course you have to be violent to play this game.' I told him I didn't consider myself a violent person."

Eleven years later, on the verge of becoming the most productive tight end in NFL history, Gonzalez seems to have put that argument forever to rest, and ignited another:

Is he the greatest tight end ever?

On Sunday against the Denver Broncos, he needs just 50 yards to overtake Shannon Sharpe's record of 10,060 yards receiving. Already in his possession are the tight end records for touchdown catches (67) and receptions (835).
