Final: Chiefs 27, Panthers 21

In 2010, the team motto for Kansas City was "Chiefs Will." Today, the team personified the meaning of it.

Surrounded by a whirlpool of adversity, Romeo Crennel rallied his team and slammed the brakes on an eight-game losing skid.

Brady Quinn produced his best performance of 2012 as Kansas City's quarterback. No. 9 completed 19 of his 23 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns. 

The open-field mirage that is Jamaal Charles juked his way to 127 rushing yards on 27 carries.

Cam Newton (15-of-27, 232, 3 TD) and the Carolina Panthers (3-9) will attempt to rebound next Sunday, as they host the 11-1 Atlanta Falcons. The Kansas City Chiefs (2-10) will land in Cleveland and clash helmets with the 3-8 Browns.
