KC fans search for bright spots in loss to Ravens

The Kansas City Chiefs held the Baltimore Ravens to just 298 yards of offense, as well as forcing two turnovers, yet lost on Sunday, 9-6, to fall to 1-4 on the season.

The game was marred by a hapless pass offense led by quarterback Matt Cassel, who threw two interceptions and lost a fumble at the goal line, that left many Chiefs fans frustrated and upset by yet another poor performance. Jamaal Charles was the lone bright spot, rushing for 140 yards on 30 carries, but it would be far from enough in the close loss.

Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride sums up the loss succinctly:

The Kansas City Chiefs improved their play on defensive dramatically but still couldn't hold on to beat the Baltimore Ravens, losing a nailbiter, 9-6. Matt Cassel was hurt in the fourth quarter, replaced by Brady Quinn. Cassel threw only 15 passes all game and had only thrown seven at halftime.

Jamaal Charles was the star on offense as he racked up 140 rushing yards on 30 carries. Justin Houston is the defensive star in the loss with two sacks.

The Chiefs were in this game all the way to the very end when the Ravens converted a 3rd-and-1 at the two-minute warning, effectively ending the game.

The Chiefs travel to Tampa Bay for a Week 6 matchup against the Buccaneers on Oct. 14.

Chiefs, Ravens meet Sunday

Before the season, the Kansas City Chiefs surely hoped to be better than 1-3 when they saw that the Baltimore Ravens loomed in Week 5. Alas, that's where they find themselves as Sunday's noon game against the 3-1 Ravens is upon them.

It'll take a huge upset for Kansas City's disappointing season to turn around in Week 5, as Baltimore looks every bit as powerful as the team that made it to the AFC Championship game last year.

The Chiefs, meanwhile, are coming off a huge loss to AFC West rival San Diego, but Kansas City at least has the benefit of playing at Arrowhead on its side Sunday. Kansas City's home crowd is traditionally one of the best in football. Whether or not the fans can muster enough excitement about a team that has woefully underperformed its expectations remains to be seen.

Sunday's game will be televised by CBS. Here's the rest of the Week 5 NFL schedule. All times listed are Central.
