It was over when: Josh Gordon was tackled in-bounds to keep the clock rolling. Ended up being the final play of the game.

Fun Fact: This was Cleveland’s first loss of the season in a game in which Brandon Weeden did not start.

THREE POSITIVES

1. Derrick Johnson

Johnson had 12 tackles, two for loss, a pass defended and a quarterback hit. He was tremendous today.

2. Jamaal Charles

He’s fine, has a knee contusion. Don’t be surprised if he misses some practice this week.

Charles also had his eighth-straight game of 100 total yards or more, the second longest streak to open a season.

3. Rushing Defense

KC allowed a mere 57 rushing yards today, proving that, unless the quarterback is running around, there is very little yardage to be gained on the ground against this defense.

TWEET OF THE GAME

THREE WORRIES

1. Pass Rush

Wanna know what happens when the Chiefs cannot generate a pass rush? They give up 293 yards passing and two touchdowns to Jason Campbell. Do not want to know what Peyton Manning does with that kind of time.

2. Alex Smith

Smith had only 50 passing yards in the second half and missed wide open receivers several times throughout the game. While his numbers were good and his quarterback rating was 102.2, this may have been one of his worst performances of the season.

3. Offensive Line

A lot of a attention is going to to Eric Fisher because 1) he was horrible and 2) he’s the number one overall pick. But the entire offensive line was awful today. Brandon Albert let a rookie blow him up several times, Jeff Allen was getting run over, Jon Asamoah had a holding penalty, and Rodney Hudson had a false start as the center. A poor performance all around.

UP NEXT

Chiefs travel to Buffalo for their final game before the bye week. Kickoff is set for noon.

GO CHIEFS!

    We are going to get everyone’s best shot. At 8-0 we are the hunted. We will keep working to get better.

    his worst game of the season? how biased are you man. offense killed it in the 1st half while the defense crumbled to yet another backup QB. Offense stalls in the 2nd and D finally picks up the slack. Team victory 101.

    Just got home. Great to win a tough game. OL had issues, Fisher looked to have regress this game but could have been the team he was facing. Way to much zone by defense, also slow to change. Sutton was quoted on the radio, if a team waits for the second half to make adjustments, it may be to late. Suggest he follows his own advice.
    Still a great hometown win. Get some rest and start preparing for next Sunday.

      I was wondering if they were playing zone. Coverage sure didn’t look like previous weeks.

  • freshmeat62

    O-line was terrible. All 5 were bad, but especially Fisher, Allen, and Hudson. Brown’s D was in the Chiefs backfield the whole game. I don’t know how Chiefs won this game. Brown’s receiver, Bess, was Chiefs MVP. Chiefs D finally had a mediocre game as Brown’s o-line did a good job on Chiefs. How in the heck did the Chiefs win this game?

    • Mark Bustamante

      My feelings also. We did not deserve to win this game but we did. Wish the bye was this coming Sunday! We still have lots of work to do

  • Adam Smith

    It’s hard to imagine a worse 8-0 team.

    I hope they send a nice gift to Bess, if they didn’t already pay him off in advance. Forget about the dropped balls, the real killer was his fumbling the punt.
