Final: Buccaneers 38, Chiefs 10

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers upgrade to 2-3 on the year. The Kansas City Chiefs fall to 1-5 and still haven't obtained one lead throughout regulation this entire season. 

Today, Tampa Bay's receivers were the story. Time and again, Freeman's wideouts made improbable catches, despite textbook coverage by Kansas City defenders. Mike Williams (4 REC, 113 YDS, 1 TD) racked up 103 yards by halftime, and newcomer Vincent Jackson (4 REC, 66 YDS, 2 TD) added a pair of scores. 

Before the final whistle blew, the Chiefs defense had been gouged for 463 total yards by the Buccaneers offense.

Kansas City's quarterback controversy will live on. Brady Quinn showed more tangible ability than Matt Cassel, but he still couldn't engineer a single scoring drive. Quinn completed 22 of his 38 attempts for 180 yards, but his two interceptions—which, arguably, he wasn't to blame for—proved costly. 

The Buccaneers will host the New Orleans Saints next Sunday. The Chiefs will enter their bye week embedded in a whirlwind of criticism.
