Chiefs get first down, then TD
By Bill Williamson
SAN DIEGO – With 12:34 remaining in the third quarter, the Kansas City Chiefs registered their first down of Sunday’s game.
The Chiefs had five possessions in the first half and didn’t gain one first down.
The inaugural first down for Week 3 occurred on Kansas City’s second offensive play of the second half when quarterback Matt Cassel hit tight end Leonard Pope for a short gain.
The first down sparked the Chiefs. Cassel then hit Dwayne Bowe for a big first down inside the Chargers’ five-yard line and then hit Bowe for a touchdown. Remarkably, the Chiefs are in this game. San Diego leads, 10-7, with plenty of time left in the third quarter.
