Chiefs Losing Streak Now At Eight, Lose To Lions 25-20

                     Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Samie Parker (18) can only laugh after diving to the turf with the ball with no time on the clock in the Chiefs’ 25-20 loss to the Detroit Lions Sunday afternoon. 

Sunday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Detroit Lions, by all appearances, played an ugly game for four quarters; the Lions managed to hold off a late Chiefs rally in the 4th quarter, enabling Detroit to hold off Kansas City 25-20 at Ford Field.

Detroit dominated the scoring in the first quarter with an 11-yard run by Lions running back T.J. Duckett, who took over for Kevin Jones; Jones suffered a knee injury late in the first half. The Lions would also add a safety, caused by a blocked punt by tight end Casey FitzSimmons in the period. Kansas City would finally show some life in the second quarter when Chiefs quarterback Damon Huard took over for an injured Brodie Croyle and led his team to 2 late first-half scores – one a TD pass from Huard to defensive end Jared Allen, his second career offensive TD. The Lions would go into the third period leading 19-14.

Both teams exchanged field goals in the seond goals, sandwiching a Huard 34-yard TD pass to WR Dwayne Bowe. The Chiefs would get one last crack at winning this game, starting at its own 17-yard line with 39 ticks left on the clock; however, it was all for naught as the Chiefs’ Parker, after a pass reception, fell to the turf. Damon Huard had a very good outing, going 24-of-36 for 305 yards with 2 touchdowns. Running back Kolby Smith led all Chiefs rushers with 60 yards on 17 carries; TE Tony Gonzalez led all Kansas City receivers with 10 receptions for 137 yards, while Bowe caught 8 balls for 97 yards and a TD.

Detroit’s Jon Kitna had a subpar effort, going only 9-of-16 for 115 yards and an interception. Lions RB T.J. Duckett led all Lions rushers with 15 carries for 102 yards and a score. Lions WR Calvin Johnson led all Detroit receivers with 2 receptions for 47 yards. Kansas City (4-11), currently on an 8-game losing streak, finish their season next week when they travel to New York to take on the New York Jets; Detroit (7-8) goes to Green Bay next week to face the Packers.
