--RB Priest Holmes, despite being bruised and battered by Pittsburgh's staunch run defense, still gashed the Steelers for 122 yards and 3 rushing touchdowns in Kansas City's 41-20 victory Sept. 14. Holmes was stung initially after vaulting for a 3-yard TD, then endured some fierce sticks but still managed to score from 31 yards out in the fourth quarter.
--QB Trent Green started out
horribly against Pittsburgh when his first pass was intercepted by Chad Scott
and returned for a TD in the first minute. Green struggled in throwing for only
125 yards and compiling a 62.7 QB rating, though the Chiefs still won
-- DT Ryan Sims had two of the Chiefs four sacks against
Pittsburgh's Tommy Maddox. They were the first two sacks of Sims' short NFL
career, which was limited to spot appearances in six games last year because of
an season-ending elbow injury.
--Dante Hall's 100-yard kickoff
return against Pittsburgh was the second longest in Chiefs history. Only Noland
Smith (1967) has a longer one -- an NFL record 106-yarder against Denver. It was
the fourth kick return TD of Hall's career. He had two punt returns and one
kickoff return last year.
--TE Tony Gonzalez, playing with a
sore ankle and a sore knee, caught only two passes Sunday against Pittsburgh,
but his first catch was the 400th of his career. Only Otis Taylor (with 410
career receptions) and Henry Marshall (416) had as many in Chiefs history.
Gonzalez is one of four active NFL tight ends with that many
--FS Jerome Woods scored the first TD of his eight-year
NFL career when he returned a Tommy Maddox pick 46 yards for a score against
Pittsburgh. Woods later forced and recovered a fumble.
