After holding the Carolina Panthers scoreless and keeping them away to picking up a first down in the first quarter, the Chiefs were beat in the second quarter by Carolina’s starters. Alex Smith was able to move the ball well early on. However, the Chiefs’ starting unit couldn’t find the end zone.
The backups for the Chiefs and Panthers traded the lead a couple of times in the second half, but it was Carolina's backups that got the job done to give the team a win tonight in front of a national audience.
Final Score: Panthers 28, Chiefs 16
