From Arrowhead Stadium
For awhile in the first half Friday evening, half of the lights went out at Arrowhead Stadium. Only because there was enough natural light did the game go on without a problem.
Likewise the Chiefs were not on full power in the first half against the visiting St. Louis Rams. The No. 1 defense got trampled by QB Sam Bradford, RB Steven Jackson and the rest of the Birds offense. On the flip side, the Chiefs offense was unable to get anything moving and thus they fell for the third time in the 2011 pre-season, 14-10.
The Chiefs are now 1-10 with Todd Haley as head coach in the pre-season. In none of those 11 games did they score more than 17 points and they couldn’t reach that figure against St. Louis, picking up only a Ryan Succop FG and a 32-yard TD pass from QB Ricky Stanzi to TE Cody Slate.
Bradford had a pair of first quarter touchdowns and Jackson ran 15 times for 72 yards, including a pretty 25-yard run.
More to come on the Rams-Chiefs.
