Chiefs Notes

News and notes surrounding the Kansas City Chiefs.

--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 41-20.
   -- 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 catches.
   --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.
