Chiefs Blow 10-Point Lead Twice In 35-31 Loss

From Reliant Stadium, Houston    

“We weren’t able to finish the game today.”

Those were the words of Chiefs QB Matt Cassel and it was a bit of an understatement. Sunday afternoon against the Houston Texans, the Chiefs had a 14-point lead halfway through the third quarter. They had 10-point leads twice after that.

Then, they weren’t able to finish. The Texans scored a pair of touchdowns in the game’s final seven minutes and stole away with a 35-31 victory. The game’s final play came when Cassel was sacked trying to throw a Hail Mary pass into the end zone (above).

The decision left Houston 4-2 on the season as they head into their bye week.

After starting the season with three straight victories, the Chiefs have now lost two in a row and are 3-2 on the season. Remarkably, they did not lose any ground in the AFC West, as San Diego, Denver and Oakland also lost.

There was plenty of action and things to write about in this game. Here’s our coverage:
