The Kansas City Chiefs performed the way most believed they would last night against the New England Patriots, getting beat on Monday Night Football 34-3. In the process, it's easy to assume that the Chiefs had no highlights or anything to feel good about, but if you watched the game, the Chiefs were really putting on a strong showing early on in the first quarter and the overall first half performance was very solid. The Patriots, however, proved to be the far superior team and put together the adjustments necessary to blow the doors open in the second half. For those who missed the game, we aim to please. Here are some video highlights for you to check out.
First up is the run that showed Thomas Jones had more life left in him than anyone thought he did with a wonderful 26 yard burst up the sideline that almost put the Chiefs on the board. He finished with 48 yards on 8 carries.
Next up is a surprise onside kick that Todd Haley tried to pull on Bill Belichick, and if it wasn't for a slight touch from Cory Greenwood, it might have worked out.
Wallace Gilberry soon strip-sacked Tom Brady and forced a fumble that Allen Bailey recovered, showing that the Chiefs came into the game with the ideal defensive gameplan.
Here's the first of two Rob Gronkowski touchdowns, this one being the easiest TD the Chiefs had given up in a long time because of blown coverage.
Tyler Palko's first of three interceptions came off of a Steve Breaston tipped pass.
As the game started to break open, Julian Edelman put the finishing touches on the Pats win with a 72-yard punt return.
Rob Gronkowski came back again to earn his second touchdown of the night, giving him 20 in his first 25 games as a pro.
Finally, Patriots rookie running back Shane Vereen iced the game with the final touchdown of the night, a four yard run late in the fourth quarter.
