Chiefs notes: Big game for Bowe
(http://media.kansascity.com/smedia/2007/11/11/22/990-CHIEFSBRONCOS_SP_20071111_SLK_54_11-12-2007_T5VKFHT.standalone.prod_affiliate.81.jpg)
Dwayne Bowe finished with 105 receiving yards on Sunday.


Big game for rookie Bowe Dwayne Bowe replaced Tony Gonzalez, for one game at least, as the favorite receiver of Chiefs quarterbacks. Bowe caught a career-high nine passes for 105 yards.
Bowe has 604 receiving yards, and if he isn’t driven out of the lineup by injury, may wind up holding the Chiefs’ single-season rookie receiving yardage record. He is currently fourth behind Chris Burford (in 1960), Sylvester Morris (2000) and Johnny Robinson (1960) but needs only 186 yards to pass Burford.
Pollard has block party
Bernard Pollard provided a safety for the Chiefs with his second-quarter blocked punt. He got a hand on a kick from former Chief Todd Sauerbrun, and the ball went out of the back of the end zone, giving the Chiefs a brief 5-3 lead.
Broncos break through in KC
The Broncos won at Arrowhead Stadium for the first time since 2002.
“The Chiefs have been so good over the years taking advantage of their home field with their crowd and finding a way to win,” coach Mike Shanahan said. “It’s nice to come in here and find a way to do it ourselves.”
The Broncos are now tied with the Chiefs at 4-5. The teams were a half-game behind San Diego, which played Indianapolis on Sunday night, for first place in the AFC West.
Injury report
QB Damon Huard was knocked out in the third quarter because of what he said was a neck injury after being sacked. While Huard said he couldn’t have immediately returned to the game, he indicated he would have been OK to play later.
Coach Herm Edwards said wide receiver Eddie Kennison aggravated a sore hamstring, and left tackle Damion McIntosh left because of a sore Achilles’ tendon.
Tempers, tempers
Chiefs defensive end Tamba Hali and Denver tight end Daniel Graham were jawing at each other during the fourth quarter before officials had to step in.
“Those guys were holding the entire game,” Hali said of the Broncos.
All-star inactives
The Chiefs and Broncos could start the foundation of a Pro Bowl team with the players declared inactive Sunday.
Larry Johnson (foot), a two-time Pro Bowler, was inactive for the Chiefs, and Denver’s inactives included three starters — John Lynch (neck), Travis Henry (ribs) and Javon Walker (knee). Lynch, Walker and Henry have a combined 10 Pro Bowls.

Where to start.

Ok I will start with the least obvious choice. Eddie Kennison, during week 10 Kennison came back and looked ok, hard to look good when you aren't being throw to. Problem is Kennison reinjured the hammy, I believe it is time for IR for Kennison for the year, If this is truly his last year and he plans on retiring then maybe keep him inactive and let him play another one or two, but if he plans on coming back next year then IR and get that hammy 100%.

And Hali, From what I have heard there can be holding called on most every play in the NFL, if they aren't calling it do something to break it.

I have spoke enough of Huard so I am going to let that one go.

And did anyone see the Packers clip on NFL Network, Ruvell Martin caught a td and did a Lambeau Leap and some fan (Male) grabbed his junk, on NFL Network, I believe that it was Chris Berman but anyway one of the analysts called the fan the Lambeau Creep.

A true number one receiver is what many of us were hoping for back when we had the "O" line that would give the QB time in the pocket.
