Awful Season Over as Chiefs Fall to Jets 13-10

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson (56) attempts to tackle New York Jets running back Thomas Jones (20) in overtime of an NFL football game Sunday, Dec. 30, 2007, at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Jones rushed for 98 yards as the Jets beat the Chiefs 13-10.

Coach Herm Edwards says he’s glad it’s over, but he’s not going to dwell on the Chiefs’ miserable season.  It finally came to an end yesterday with a 13-10 overtime loss to his old team, the New York Jets, at Giants Stadium.  The Chiefs held the Jets scoreless into the second-quarter, but then New York took a 7-0 lead.  With three-minutes left in the game, a Brodie Croyle touchdown tied things up at 10, forcing overtime.  But Jets kicker Mike Nugent — who was drafted by Edwards himself — sailed a 33-yarder through the post.  Jared Allen finished the year on top of the NFL, with 15-and-a-half sacks.  Tony Gonzalez broke the record for a tight end, with 816 career receptions.  Ninety-nine of those came this season.  The Chiefs finish the year at 4-and-12, with nine losses in-a-row.
