When Dolphins QB John Beck dived and scored the go-ahead, two-point conversion in the fourth quarter, the Chiefs’ night just got worse.
Big highlightSo that’s what a touchdown drive looks like. Some nice throws by Brodie Croyle, nice catches by Michael Allan, Samie Parker, Jeff Webb and Chris Hannon. Why can’t it always be so easy?
Croyle said last week he swore off the dumb passes. Wonder how he will explain the end-zone interception?
Disastrous nightIt would have been nice to see Justin Medlock follow his almost-game winner last week in Cleveland with another successful attempt. But his first-quarter try from 42 yards was wide left, and his 37-yarder on the first play of the fourth period hit an upright and bounced back.
What we learnedThe Chiefs need more work on their tackling. We already knew that about Jarrad Page, but what about Derrick Johnson?
Tyron Brackenridge suffered a triceps injury.
Drew Brees, Reggie Bush and the rest of the high-scoring Saints come to Arrowhead Stadium next week. Are the defensive Chiefs up to that challenge?
The hot seat
If he’s basing it largely on the results of preseason games, Herm Edwards has a difficult decision. Croyle moved the team once for a touchdown, but otherwise turned it over for a second time on Thursday. Damon Huard again showed nothing. This is the kind of thing that keeps head coaches up at night.
Fantasy watchUp: Croyle threw for 82 yards and the touchdown.
Down: Michael Bennett had just 8 yards in seven carries.
THAT quarterback is NOT a Pro Bowl quarterback. Never was and never will be.
