Score: Chiefs 23, Browns 17
It was over when: Josh Gordon was tackled in-bounds to keep the clock rolling. Ended up being the final play of the game.
Player of the Game: Davone Bess and all his drops.
Fun Fact: This was Cleveland’s first loss of the season in a game in which Brandon Weeden did not start.
Johnson had 12 tackles, two for loss, a pass defended and a quarterback hit. He was tremendous today.
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.

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