Kansas City missed a pretty good football game Sunday.
With the game blacked out on local television for the first time in 19 years, the Browns and Chiefs put on one of the most entertaining games of the day.
Yet, in the end it was another frustrating loss for the Chiefs, who dropped to 3-11. The game ended a three-game homestretch for Kansas City. It lost all three games to end its 2009 home slate.
Once again, the Chiefs’ defense let the team down. The Browns -- yes, the Browns -- moved the ball at will and made one explosive play after another. Kansas City allowed little-known Jerome Harrison to rush for 286 yards. Cleveland return man Josh Cribbs had two kickoff returns for touchdowns.
Offensively, the Chiefs had some bright spots. Quarterback Matt Cassel had a nice bounce-back game after two losses, and running back Jamaal Charles continued to show he could be the back of the future in Kansas City.
In reality, 34 point against Cleveland should have been enough for Kansas City. But the offense couldn’t keep up with the Chiefs' dreadful defensive play.
