Player of the Game: Javier Arenas

Plenty of pundits are picking the Chiefs as their surprise choice to win the AFC West, and Kansas City doesn't disappoint in Week 1, scoring 14 fourth-quarter points to beat the Falcons 24-21.

The Falcons led 21-10 heading into the final quarter, but the Chiefs finally woke up thanks to a 59-yard punt return for a touchdown by Javier Arenas, followed by a 22-yard score by Jamaal Charles to seal the deal.

Michael Turner ran for 145 yards, including a 65-yard touchdown, in the loss.
