KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Whether this was the worst, second-worst or 10th-worst loss in their team's long history hardly mattered to the glassy-eyed young men in the somber Arizona dressing room.
The Cardinals have given up. There's no spark, no enthusiasm. QB Jake Plummer hasn't stepped up with big plays. It's embarrassing for a team to give up like that.
Question on the Chiefs: Do you see them playing "spoiler" against their fellow AFC West foes later this month?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Holmes had his 14th 100-yard game with the Chiefs, tying Christian Okoye's team record. ... Cardinals WR Nathan Poole, who was working as a youth counselor three weeks ago, had his first career receiving day. He finished with three catches for 35 yards, with a long gain of 15 yards. ... Vermeil is 6-9 against the Cardinals, but a Vermeil-coached team hadn't won since the Philadelphia Eagles' 38-0 victory on Dec. 12, 1981.
