The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Jaguars 28-2 , though perhaps “defeat” isn’t a strong enough word for the victory.  The Chiefs offense was efficient, but the defense absolutely dominated the day.

The Chiefs defense shut down the run and harassed Gabbert all day, sacking him six times and intercepting him twice.  The Jaguars did get one drive late down to the Chiefs goal line, but were held out of the end zone on four straight plays, cementing a perfect performance for the Chiefs defense.

Jamaal Charles did sustain a quad injury during the game. He returned for two plays in the third quarter, but was held out the remainder of the game, which was well in hand, as a precautionary measure.

Though the Jaguars finished with a total of 157 passing yards, the bulk of that came from garbage time passing, as they had yet to amass 100 total passing yards by the two-minute warning.

Justin Houston had two sacks and Tamba Hali had an interception for a touchdown. The MVP of this game was undoubtedly the entirety of the Chiefs defense.
