    Week 5: Cowboys (34) vs. Chiefs (20)

    Chiefs lose fumbles, game to Cowboys

    In a turnover laden game by both teams, the Dallas Cowboys were the better team on the field today, beating the Kansas City Chiefs 34-20 in Arrowhead Stadium earlier today.

    Tony Romo looked great at times, and very ordinary at times. The Dallas quarterback did throw his first two interceptions of the year, one going to Kansas City free safety Darren Sharper and the other on a fantastic one-handed grab by Brandon Flowers to stop a potential touchdown drive. Romo finished the day with 181 yards passing on 15 of 23 passing and 2 touchdowns to go with the 2 interceptions.

    The difference in the game, however, was the running attacks of both ball clubs. Dallas' rushing attack was unstoppable, with normal backup running back Felix Jones getting 109 yards on only 11 attempts. Tashard Choice also ran for 43 yards on only 5 carries. Kansas City's running attack was much less efficient. Jamaal Charles had only 58 yards on 22 carries, and had two fumbles. He did have 3 receptions for 30 yards and a touchdown, however.

    A bright spot in the Kansas City offensive attack was quarterback Alex Smith, who threw for 245 yards on 15 of 19 passing with 3 touchdowns. A new favorite target of Smith's is rookie Quentin Lawrence out of McNeese State. He caught 6 balls for 93 yards and a touchdown score. Dwayne Bowe only had one catch in the game, but it was a big 52 yard score early that made the game 7 all early in the second quarter on what appeared to be a busted coverage.

    However, point off of turnovers would be the HUGE difference. A costly special teams fumble by special teams expert/cornerback B.J. Sams gave 7 points to the Cowboys. Fumbles by Jamaal Charles led to 10 more Cowboys points, and the defense could not keep Dallas out of the end zone on short fields.

    Coach Winuvas did not speak to the media after the game. He simply walked to the podium, took the glass of water placed there for him, and threw it hard against the back wall. He then walked off in disgust.

    Frustrating times in Kansas City, indeed.
