Kansas City, MO — Chiefs Quarterback Matt Cassel fumbled on his fourth snap of the game and things went south from there in the Chiefs 25-0 loss to Tampa Bay in both team's exhibition opener. Newly signed Tamba Hali didn't play a single snap. Teammate Jamal Charles didn't get a single carry while Dwayne Bowe didn't even have a pass thrown his way in what looked more like a practice for the Chiefs than it did a game
Making his return to his hometown, K-State product Josh Freeman ran for a touchdoww and hit 9-13 passes for 73 yards playing into the second quarter. Ironically, his favorite target was KU product Desmond Briscoe, who looked sharp in catching 4 balls for 63 yards.
The Chiefs managed all of 6 first downs and 137 yards of total offense, they continue their preseason next weekend in Baltimore.
