Chiefs Vs. Bears Halftime Update: Tyler Palko's Hail Mary Gives Kansas City 7-3 Lead

With just four seconds remaining in the second quarter, the beleaguered Kansas City Chiefs put up a prayer to score their first touchdown in twelve quarters and that prayer was answered in the form of a Hail Mary. Tyler Palko's heave from midfield was initially deflected by Brian Urlacher, only to fall into the hands of the diminutive Dexter McCluster for the Chiefs touchdown and a 7-3 advantage.

Outside of that exciting play, the offenses have been nothing short of pathetic. Robbie Gould connected on a 31-yard field goal early in the second quarter to get the Bears on the board.

The bigger news from this game thus far has been the injuries. Kyle Orton was subbed in for Palko and on his first play dislocated his finger. More substantial, the Bears might have lost their all-world tailback Matt Forte has he seemed to have suffered a major knee injury. The Bears have immediately ruled him out for the remainder of the game, something that the Bears don't normally do.

The Chiefs will receive the ball in the second half.
