Josh Freeman's 62-yard touchdown strike has the Chiefs trailing early on the road.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman's touchdown pass to receiver Mike Williams with less than a minute remaining in the first quarter broke Tampa Bay and the Kansas City Chiefs' deadlock in their early Sunday showdown at Raymond James Stadium as the Chiefs trail the Bucs, 7-0.

Kansas City, led by quarterback Brady Quinn, was unable to get much offense going, and Quinn was intercepted to break a promising 11-play drive midway through the quarter. After the Chiefs were unable to muster much offense with their final full possession of the quarter, they punted to the Buccaneers. Faced with strong field position, Tampa Bay didn't waste much time as Freeman connected with Williams on the first play of the drive, giving the Bucs their 7-0 lead as they head into the second quarter.

Freeman, too, has been intercepted, but his turnover did not prove costly, as the Chiefs were unable to capitalize. Chiefs receiver Dexter McCluster has two catches for 12 yards.
