[Kansas City.com] The big play was back in the Chiefs’ passing game Sunday.
After consecutive games with just one and two passes of 20 or more yards, the Chiefs hit on five big ones against the Patriots at Arrowhead Stadium. They were major factors in the Chiefs’ 26-16 victory.
The biggest, a 52-yarder from Trent Green to Dante Hall, went for a touchdown that gave the Chiefs their biggest lead of the day at 26-3 in the third quarter.
They didn’t score directly on any of the four others but went in for a touchdown after Green’s 42-yard bomb to Eddie Kennison on the first possession. They kicked a field goal after the three other big pass plays.
“If we’re able to get the ball down the field, the defenses can’t sit on the underneath stuff,” Green said. “We were able to stretch the field on a couple of occasions, so some of our underneath stuff was able to open up. In order to do that, you generally have to have time.”
