TAMPA, Fla. |Three observations from the first half of todays game between the Chiefs and Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers lead 7-3:
By ADAM TEICHER
The Kansas City Star
- Stanford Routts coverage on Mike Williams 62-yard touchdown catch was actually very good. Routt just wasnt aware of the ball. He didnt make a play on the pass, while Williams did.
- Brady Quinn isnt playing a lousy game for the Chiefs in his debut as the starting quarterback. He threw an interception that bounced off the hands of tight end Steve Maneri. But eventually he will have to make some plays for the Chiefs to score some points. Tampa Bay is playing an aggressive defense that is causing a lot of negative plays. Sooner or later the Chiefs will have to hit the Bucs for a big play
- The Chiefs have all these supposed go-to players on offense. But their best offensive player today has been Nate Eachus, the undrafted rookie. Eachus has 14 rushing yards and caught one pass for 19 yards.
