of 16 /16
THE MATCH-UP The Chiefs return to Arrowhead Stadium to host San Francisco Sunday, October 1st after enjoying a bye last weekend. Dating back to ’90, the Chiefs own an 11-6 (.647) record in games following a bye. Kansas City is still seeking its initial regular season victory under head coach Herm Edwards. The Chiefs are coming off a tough 9-6 OT loss at Denver (9/17). After losing starting QB Trent Green to a head trauma in a 23-10 setback on Opening Day vs. Cincinnati (9/10), the Chiefs battled the Broncos to a 6-6 tie after 60 minutes of play behind backup QB Damon Huard at INVESCO Field. Denver won the toss in OT and claimed a 9-6 victory thanks to a 39-yard FG from K Jason Elam in the extra period. Huard is expected to make his initial home start with the Chiefs this week and has one of the NFL’s top rushing attacks at his disposal. KC is currently tied for fifth in the league in rushing, averaging 129.0 yards per game on the ground thanks in large part to Pro Bowl RB Larry Johnson who leads the NFL in yards from scrimmage (rushing and receiving), averaging 157.5 yards per contest. Despite suffering a loss at Denver, Kansas City turned in one of its most dominant defensive performances in recent memory against the Broncos. The Chiefs held a 3-0 lead at halftime, marking the first time the franchise had pitched a first-half shutout at Denver since ’61 and the initial time KC defense didn’t permit a TD at Denver since ’71. The Chiefs are currently seventh in the NFL in total defense, permitting just 277.0 ypg and are tied for 10th in scoring defense, allowing 16.0 ppg. The 49ers are currently 1-2 and are coming off a 38-24 home setback vs. Philadelphia (9/24). SF registered a 20-13 home win vs. St. Louis (9/17) after dropping a 34-27 decision at Arizona (9/10) on Opening Day. Following the 49ers game, KC embarks on a two-game road swing with games at Arizona (10/8) and at Pittsburgh (10/15), marking KC’s first visits to both Cardinals Stadium and Heinz Field. THE SERIES Kansas City has faced San Francisco just nine times in regular season play, with the 49ers holding a 6-3 advantage. The home team has won the last six contests in this series with the Chiefs claiming victories in the last two outings between these two squads at Arrowhead, including a 44-9 victory in San Francisco’s most recent trip to Kansas City (11/30/97). The 49ers have won their last two regular season meetings with the Chiefs, both of which came at 3Com Park. The last Chiefs-49ers contest resulted in a 17-13 win by the 49ers at San Francisco (11/10/02). KC’s only regular season win at SF came by a 26-17 score (12/6/71). San Francisco’s last two visits to Kansas City have resulted in memorable victories for the Chiefs. In a much-ballyhooed ’94 match-up between Hall of Fame QBs Joe Montana and Steve Young, Kansas City’s defense stole the show before the second-largest in-stadium crowd (79,907) in Arrowhead history. The 49ers held a 14-7 lead in the second quarter before a LB Derrick Thomas sack of Young for a safety swung the game’s momentum. Thomas would record 3.0 of Kansas City’s 4.0 sacks on the day, Montana would throw two TDs, while 2003 Hall of Fame enshrinee RB Marcus Allen rushed for 114 yards as KC outscored SF 15-3 in the second half to record a 24-17 win (9/11/94). The Chiefs also claimed a 44-9 win at Arrowhead (11/30/97), snapping an 11-game 49ers winning streak. QB Rich Gannon threw three TDs, KC’s defense registered 5.0 sacks and Chiefs TE Tony Gonzalez blocked a punt in that game which featured a pair of squads that would finish the season with identical 13-3 records.

  • THE MATCH-UP The Chiefs return to Arrowhead Stadium to host San Francisco

    Sunday, October 1st after enjoying a bye last weekend. Dating back to ’90, the Chiefs own an 11-6 (.647) record in games following a bye. Kansas City is still seeking its initial regular season victory under head coach Herm Edwards.

    The Chiefs are coming off a tough 9-6 OT loss at Denver (9/17). After losing starting QB Trent Green to a head trauma in a 23-10 setback on Opening Day vs. Cincinnati (9/10), the Chiefs battled the Broncos to a 6-6 tie after 60 minutes of play behind backup QB Damon Huard at INVESCO Field. Denver won the toss in OT and claimed a 9-6 victory thanks to a 39-yard FG from K Jason Elam in the extra period.

    Huard is expected to make his initial home start with the Chiefs this week and has one of the NFL’s top rushing attacks at his disposal. KC is currently tied for fifth in the league in rushing, averaging 129.0 yards per game on the ground thanks in large part to Pro Bowl RB Larry Johnson who leads the NFL in yards from scrimmage (rushing and receiving), averaging 157.5 yards per contest.

    Despite suffering a loss at Denver, Kansas City turned in one of its most dominant defensive performances in recent memory against the Broncos. The Chiefs held a 3-0 lead at halftime, marking the first time the franchise had pitched a first-half shutout at Denver since ’61 and the initial time KC defense didn’t permit a TD at Denver since ’71. The Chiefs are currently seventh in the NFL in total defense, permitting just 277.0 ypg and are tied for 10th in scoring defense, allowing 16.0 ppg.

    The 49ers are currently 1-2 and are coming off a 38-24 home setback vs. Philadelphia (9/24). SF registered a 20-13 home win vs. St. Louis (9/17) after dropping a 34-27 decision at Arizona (9/10) on Opening Day. Following the 49ers game, KC embarks on a two-game road swing with games at Arizona (10/8) and at Pittsburgh (10/15), marking KC’s first visits to both Cardinals Stadium and Heinz Field.

    THE SERIES Kansas City has faced San Francisco just nine times in regular

    season play, with the 49ers holding a 6-3 advantage. The home team has won the last six contests in this series with the Chiefs claiming victories in the last two outings between these two squads at Arrowhead, including a 44-9 victory in San Francisco’s most recent trip to Kansas City (11/30/97).

    The 49ers have won their last two regular season meetings with the Chiefs, both of which came at 3Com Park. The last Chiefs-49ers contest resulted in a 17-13 win by the 49ers at San Francisco (11/10/02). KC’s only regular season win at SF came by a 26-17 score (12/6/71).

    San Francisco’s last two visits to Kansas City have resulted in memorable victories for the Chiefs. In a much-ballyhooed ’94 match-up between Hall of Fame QBs Joe Montana and Steve Young, Kansas City’s defense stole the show before the second-largest in-stadium crowd (79,907) in Arrowhead history.

    HOME TEAM IN ALL CAPS

    HUARD’S STARTING STATS Chiefs QB Damon Huard owns a 5-2 record as an NFL starter.

    Huard made his first start as a member of the Chiefs at Denver (9/17), subbing for an injured QB Trent Green. That contest marked the first time that a signal caller other than Green opened for the Chiefs since QB Elvis Grbac started at Atlanta (12/24/00). It was Huard’s first start since he engineered a 17-14 win for Miami at Indianapolis (11/26/00). Huard’s span of 2,121 days between starts marked the fifth-longest such gap by a QB dating back to ’90.

    If Huard opens against San Francisco, it will mark just his second start against an NFC club. He registered a win in his only previous start against an NFC foe, leading Miami to a 16-13 victory vs. Philadelphia (10/24/99) in the first start of his NFL career. Here’s a look at Huard’s stats as an NFL starter . . .

    BOUNCING BACK FROM 0-2 STARTS The Chiefs are faced with an 0-2 start for just the fourth time since

    ’88. On all three previous occasions, KC won its third game of the year. CHIEFS IN THIRD GAME AFTER AN 0-2 START, SINCE 1988

    9/18/88 W, 20-13 vs. Denver DeBerg: 259 pass yds, 2 TDs. 9/17/00 W, 42-10 vs. San Diego S. Morris: 112 rec yds, 3 TDs. 9/30/01 W, 45-13 at Washington Holmes: 147 rush yds, 2 TDs.

    KC’S INTERCONFERENCE EDGE AT ARROWHEAD The Chiefs are tied for the NFL lead with an 18-4 (.818) record in

    interconference games at home dating back to the ’95 season. KC’s overall 26-18 (.591) record against all NFC foes is tied as the fourth-best mark in the league over that same span. KC’s domination of NFC opponents at Arrowhead has been remarkable. In 22 home contests against NFC foes since ’95, KC has outscored those opponents by a 658-to-372 margin, good for an average score of 30.0 to 16.9.

    The only three NFC teams that have visited Arrowhead over the past 11 seasons and have claimed victories have been Carolina, Philadelphia and the N.Y. Giants. The Panthers and Giants were both coming off Super Bowl appearances when they visited Arrowhead. The Eagles were en route to the first of four consecutive NFC Championship berths when they won in KC in 2001 and were coming off a Super Bowl berth in 2004 when they rallied from an 18-point deficit to register a 37-31 win at Arrowhead (10/2/05).

  • KC Seeks to Bounce Back From an 0-2 Start, Continue Its NFC Dominance at Arrowhead by Pete Moris

    KC Has Shown the Ability to Bounce Back From 0-2 Starts The Chiefs are faced with an 0-2 start for just the fourth time since

    ’88, but in all three of those previous instances KC bounced back for a victory in its third game of the season. Dating back to the ’90 season, 17 clubs have opened the season at 0-2 since and have still qualified for postseason play, including the ’93 Cowboys and 2001 Patriots who both went on to win the Super Bowl after an 0-2 start. Here’s a look at the four squads who have overcome an 0-2 start to reach the playoffs since 2000.

    NFL PLAYOFF TEAMS THAT STARTED 0-2 SINCE 2000 Year Team Start Finish Postseason 2001 New England 0-2 11-5 Won Super Bowl XXXVI 2002 Atlanta 0-2 9-6-1 NFC Divisional Playoffs 2002 Pittsburgh 0-2 10-5-1 AFC Divisional Playoffs 2003 Philadelphia 0-2 12-4 NFC Championship Game

    KC Seeks to Continue Its Dominance of the NFC at Arrowhead The Chiefs are tied for the NFL lead with an 18-4 (.818) record in

    interconference games at home dating back to the ’95 season. Kansas City will face a San Francisco squad that owns a 3-22 (.120) road record dating back to the start of the 2003 season, a mark that is tied with Arizona for the lowest road winning percentage in the NFL over that span. The Colts are an NFL-best 20-5 (.800) on the road over that timeframe.

    The 49ers have lost seven consecutive road games against AFC foes and haven’t won on the road in an interconference contest since posting a 23-20 OT win at Oakland (11/3/02). Dating back to ’95, KC is 15-7 at home in the month of October and has won six of its last seven October contests at Arrowhead.

    KC is Tough to Beat When It Wins the Turnover Battle The Chiefs boast a 14-game winning streak at Arrowhead when

    posting a positive turnover ratio, the third-longest active streak in the league. Dating back to ’95, the Chiefs own a 41-4 (.911) record at Arrowhead with a positive takeaway margin. KC will try to get back on the positive side of the turnover column this week after posting an uncharacteristic -3 (2 takes/5 gives) mark thus far in 2006.

    KC will face a San Francisco squad that has lost 15 consecutive road games with a negative turnover ratio dating back to 2001. After posting an NFC-best +12 turnover differential (37 takes/25 gives) in 2003, the 49ers are -30 (50 takes/80 gives) since the start of the 2004 campaign, including a -2 (3 takes/5 gives) mark in 2006. While San Francisco has struggled in the turnover department, the 49ers do own a 3-1 record under Mike Nolan when posting a positive turnover mark. MOST CONSECUTIVE HOME WINS WITH A PLUS TURNOVER RATIO

    Chiefs Seek to Improve Scoring Defense vs. San Francisco The last 22 teams to win the Super Bowl have all ranked in the NFL’s

    top 10 in scoring defense. The last NFL champ that didn’t rank in the top 10 in that category were the ’83 L.A. Raiders, who were 13th that season.

    KC ranked 16th in the league in scoring defense in 2005, allowing 20.3 ppg and is currently tied for 10th in that category at 16.0 ppg in 2006. KC has won 19 consecutive games at Arrowhead when holding opponents to 21 points or less, a mark that ties as the third-longest active streak in the NFL. Dating back to ’95, the Chiefs are 50-7 (.877) at Arrowhead when holding their foes to 21 points or less. SF has lost 18 consecutive road games when its been held at or under the 21-point plateau dating back a 30-21 loss at St. Louis (12/30/02).

    Regardless of location, the 49ers are 3-27 (.100) in regular season play when being held to 21 or less since the start of the 2003 campaign. However, the 49ers did record a 20-13 home win vs. St. Louis (9/17) earlier this year. KC traditionally plays strong scoring defense at Arrowhead where the Chiefs have given up just 11.0 ppg in their last three home contests. Dating back to ’95, the Chiefs are a perfect 34-0 at Arrowhead when holding opponents to 10 points or less. SF has been held to 10 points or less 15 times dating back to 2003. Three of the NFL’s top six teams in terms of total points allowed in 2006 reside in the AFC West – SD (1st – 7 pts.), DEN (5th – 31 pts.) and KC (6th – 32 pts.).

    More Chiefs-49ers Scoring Stats The Chiefs are seeking to increase their point production this week

    after averaging 8.0 ppg in their first two contests of the 2006 campaign. Kansas City averaged 28.4 ppg at Arrowhead last season, the fourth-best home scoring average in the league behind the Giants (29.8), Seahawks (29.6) and Chargers (28.6).

    The Chiefs are 69-7 (.908) since the start of the ’90 season when scoring 21 points or more at Arrowhead. San Francisco has lost 11 consecutive games when allowing 21 points or more and is just 4-29 (.121) in such contests dating back to the start of the 2003 campaign. Last season, only Houston (26.9 ppg) allowed more points than San Francisco (26.8 ppg) and St. Louis (26.8 pgg). SF actually allowed fewer points on the road than at home in 2005, permitting just 22.8 ppg on the road.

    Chiefs Seek to Rev Up Rushing Attack vs. San Francisco Kansas City averaged 147.3 rushing ypg per game in eight games at

    Arrowhead in 2005, the fifth-best home rushing average in the league last season. The Chiefs would like to get back on that torrid rushing pace in 2006, particularly at Arrowhead. KC currently ranks eighth in the league in rushing, averaging 129.0 ypg in its first two contests, including a 145-yard performance in a tough, 9-6 OT loss at Denver (9/17).

    Chiefs RB Larry Johnson has topped the 100-yard barrier six times in eight career starts at Arrowhead, averaging 124.5 rushing ypg. The Chiefs have won nine consecutive games at Arrowhead when boasting a 100-yard back, including a 7-0 mark when Johnson accomplishes that feat. Overall, the Chiefs boast a 10-4 (.714) record when Johnson tops the 100-yard plateau. Should he achieve his 15th career 100-yard performance this week, he would trail only RB Priest Holmes (24) for most 100-yard ground games in KC history. San Francisco has lost 19 consecutive games when allowing a 100-yard rusher dating back to 2001.

    Chiefs Rushing Defense Typically Strong at Arrowhead The Chiefs have not permitted an individual 100-yard rusher at home

    in 16 consecutive contests, the longest such streak in franchise history. That streak also ties San Diego for the longest active string of games in the league without permitting a 100-yard runner. Kansas City’s defense allowed a league-low 76.1 rushing yards per game at home in 2005, permitting a total of just 609 ground yards (76.1 ypg) at Arrowhead all season. SF has won its last four contests when boasting a 100-yard back, including the final two contests of the 2005 season and a 20-13 win vs. St. Louis (9/17) when RB Frank Gore had 127 rushing yards.

    Arrowhead Traditionally Tough For First-Time Coaches, QBs Since ’94, the Chiefs are 23-5 (.821) against head coaches making

    their regular season debuts at Arrowhead. Kansas City has also won 17 of its last 19 games against QBs in their first or second year as NFL starters who are making their initial appearance as a starter at Arrowhead. SF head coach Mike Nolan and QB Alex Smith will both make their initial appearances in their current roles at Arrowhead on Sunday.

    Gonzalez Keeps Moving Up the NFL Charts TE Tony Gonzalez needs one more TD to surpass WR Otis Taylor

    (57) to become KC’s all-time leader in TD receptions. He also needs three catches to move into second ahead of Ozzie Newsome (662) in career receptions by a tight end in NFL history. With 22 more receiving yards, he will move into third in league annals for receiving yards by a tight end.

    2005. Seven of the league’s top 10 teams in that category reached the playoffs last season, including both Super Bowl participants. SF ranked 31st in the league in average yardage on first down last season, gaining 3.99 yards per first down play. KC (5.58) currently ranks 11th in yards per first down play in 2006, while SF (6.05) is sixth in the league.

    Huard Seeks First Victory with Chiefs, Other Arrowhead Notes Chiefs QB Damon Huard is seeking to become the first Kansas City

    QB other than the club’s Opening Day starter to register a victory since QB Rich Gannon led the squad to a 20-17 win vs. Dallas (12/13/98) … Dating back to ’95, the Chiefs own a 47-7 (.870) record at Arrowhead when leading at halftime … KC is 29-3 (.906) at Arrowhead dating back to ’95 when forcing two or more INTs. SF QB Alex Smith has thrown four TDs and 11 INTs in 10 NFL starts. The only current NFL city where the 49ers own a longer victory drought than in Kansas City is Denver, where San Francisco hasn’t won since registering a 36-34 victory (9/23/73).

    Given every reason to fall to the Broncos in Denver — including starting QB Trent Green missing his first start in 81 games — the Chiefs refused to go quietly. Kansas City pitched a first-half shutout and led 6-0 in the third quarter before the Broncos eventually pulled even and squeaked out a 9-6 win with a 39-yard field goal in overtime.

    To no one’s surprise, Kansas City opened the game with old-fashioned, ball-control football. To that end, the Chiefs first possession was a 12-play drive that featured 11 running plays and just one pass, chewing up 7:26. Using both RBs Larry Johnson and Michael Bennett as a one-two punch, the Chiefs drove to the Denver six-yard line. However, on third down from the six, a Johnson fumble returned the ball to the Broncos.

    Kansas City’s defense was up to the hard-nosed task, allowing just one Denver first down in the first quarter. Broncos QB Jake Plummer had just 12 yards passing and Denver as a team managed just 24 total yards in the opening stanza.

    Still tied at 0-0, after Broncos K Jason Elam misfired on a 44-yard field goal attempt with just over 3:00 left before halftime. That gave QB Damon Huard and the offense time to drive 55 yards for a K Lawrence Tynes 29-yard field and a 3-0 halftime lead. Huard used three passes to Johnson and one to WR Dante Hall for first downs before Tynes knocked home the game’s first points. The Chiefs first-half shutout marked the first time the Broncos were held scoreless in the first half of a game in the history of INVESCO Field.

    The battle of field position quickly tipped in the Chiefs favor in the second half as Johnson ripped off a 26-yard run to cross midfield, then P Dustin Colquitt dropped his second punt inside the five-yard line, this time at the Denver three. From there, S Greg Wesley intercepted a Plummer pass at the Denver 30-yard line setting up Tynes’ second field goal of the game for a 6-0 lead early in the third quarter.

    After getting the ball back on a punt the Chiefs coughed the ball up at the Broncos 37-yard line when Huard fumbled the football after catching his own pass that was deflected back to him. The Broncos cashed in on the turnover with a 22-yard field goal from K Jason Elam to cut the Chiefs lead to 6-3.

    Denver posted another Elam field goal as KC’s defense stiffened inside their own five-yard line and allowed only the 22-yard game-tying field goal with 5:57 left.

    The two clubs exchanged three-and-outs on the next two series, setting the Chiefs up with the ball at their own 31-yard line and 3:08 left in the game. A pair of first down runs from Johnson advanced the ball as far as the Denver 47-yard line, but that was as deep as the Chiefs could get. On third-and-13 from midfield with 0:26 remaining, Huard missed TE Tony Gonzalez, bringing up a punt and forcing overtime.

    The Broncos won the overtime coin toss and never let the Chiefs touch the ball again. A 14-yard completion to WR David Kircus, a 20-yard run from Tatum Bell and a 24-yard pass to Walker moved the ball to the Chiefs 21-yard line. From there, Elam booted the game-winning 39-yard field goal for a 9-6 overtime victory.

    GAME NOTES• Kansas City’s defense pitched a first half shutout, marking just the second time in franchise history that the club has pitched a first-half shutout at Denver. The Dallas Texans did it in a 19-12 victory at Denver (10/8/61).

    Kansas City’s defense pitched a second-half shutout and limited the 49ers to just 168 net passing yards, but could not overcome SF’s huge edge in time of possession (38:34 to 21:26) as the Chiefs dropped a 17-13 decision. The 49ers ran 73 plays on the day and converted 61.1% on third down, while the Chiefs only got 46 offensive snaps in the game. KC’s defense held the 49ers to a 42-yard K Jose Cortez FG on their first drive of the day to make the count 3-0. The Chiefs then appeared to forge ahead, but an 11-yard RB Priest Holmes TD was nullified by a holding call, forcing KC to settle for a 33-yard K Morten Andersen FG to tie the score at 3-3. RB Garrison Hearst capped SF’s next lengthy scoring march with a five-yard run to give the 49ers a 10-3 edge. But KC quickly answered with a four-play, 50-yard TD drive set up by a 36-yard KOR by WR Dante Hall. This time there were no flags as Holmes darted in from 12 yards out for his Chiefs-record 14th rushing score of the year. That TD tied the score at 10-10 and extended his club-record streak to seven consecutive games with at least one rushing score. SF again answered when RB Kevin Barlow raced in for a six-yard TD, making the count 17-10. A short KC punt then gave the 49ers another golden scoring opportunity, but CB Eric Warfield picked off QB Jeff Garcia on the final play of the first half. Neither club could score in the third quarter as the Chiefs dodged another bullet when Cortez had a 46-yard FG attempt hit the left upright. Perhaps the game’s most pivotal play occured in the third quarter when a 44-yard run by Holmes which went to the SF three-yard line was negated by a holding call, forcing the Chiefs to take a 43-yard FG. KC had one final shot, getting the ball back with 2:00 left in regulation. Three straight passes to WR Eddie Kennison got KC into SF territory. Kennison finished the game with a game-high eight catches for 134 yards. Forcing fourth-and-11 at the SF 37, the 49ers defense held, enabling San Francisco to hold onto a 17-13 win.

    GAME NOTES• RB Priest Holmes recorded his 14th rushing TD of the season, breaking the previous mark of 13 set by Abner Haynes in ’62.• With his 51 yards rushing at San Francisco Holmes reached 2,463 rushing yards in his KC career, moving him ahead of Greg Hill (2,436) for ninth in team history.• WR Eddie Kennison had 134 receiving yards. Those 134 yards were the third-highest single-game total in his career and the most by a Chiefs WR since Derrick Alexander had 146 yards on seven catches vs. Buffalo (11/19/00).
