KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Lawrence Tynes already knew he'd have to try again, from 5 yards farther back.He figured a little practice for the longest field goal attempt of his career wouldn't hurt.Tynes was right.
|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
The Chiefs did a great job this week bouncing back after a poor loss on the road last week. San Diego dug an early hole by turning the ball over and the Chiefs did a great job of capitalizing on those mistakes. The biggest surprise in this game was the manner in which the Chiefs were able to dominate the line of scrimmage. They ran the ball on the stout Chargers defense and they did a good job of controlling the run on defense.
The Chiefs' ability to protect up front allowed them to get TE Tony Gonzalez (above) back involved in the offense and he had a big day. The Chargers will put this one behind them quickly. They did not play very well, but they rarely do in Arrowhead, so they need to chalk it up to that and get back on track.
Gonzalez has caught a pass in 90 straight games, the third-longest streak all-time for tight ends. ... Since 2004, the Chargers have allowed only four 100-yard rushing games. Larry Johnson has two -- last December and Sunday. The others were Terrell Suggs of the Cleveland Browns and Curtis Martin of the New York Jets. ... The Chargers lost linebacker Shaun Phillips for four to six weeks. He hurt his right calf in the second quarter. He's the team's sack leader with six.
