Chiefs fans heard at Edward Jones Dome

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Rams just committed false-start penalties on consecutive plays in the red zone amid impressive (depressing?) crowd noise from Kansas City Chiefs fans.

Chiefs fans have made more noise than Rams fans to this point in the game. The penalties forced the Rams to settle for a field goal and a 3-0 lead.

Entire rows of seats in the upper decks appear unoccupied. Fans wearing Chiefs colors appear at least as prevalent as fans wearing Rams colors. Red seats in the Edward Jones Dome add to the feeling of a Chiefs presence here.

Plenty of Rams fans are here, of course, and they'll make noise if the Rams give them reason. They were pretty loud when the Rams made a tackle on the kickoff return following their field goal.

By the way, Matt Cassel is at quarterback for the Chiefs as they prepare for their first drive.
