NFL's Week 2: Chiefs win - Rams lose. Cards still tied for lead in NL Central and Tigers top Royals
It's week two of the National Football League season, and the Kansas City Chiefs were looking to go 2-and-0.
Last year the Chiefs won only two games all season long.
Sunday, the Chiefs were playing host to the Dallas Cowboys.
The Chiefs were wearing all red for the first time in franchise history.
And the Chiefs would strike on their first drive, Alex Smith fakes the handoff, then hits JamaalCcharles with a two yard touchdown it's 7-0, Kansas City.
It was 7-3 end of the first quarter when Tony Rromo hits Dez Bryant in the back of the endzone, a two yard connection and it's 10-7, Cowboys.
It was 13-7 Dallas,  when Kansas City takes the lead, Alex Smith hits Dwayne Bowe cutting across the field, this is a 12-yard touchdown connection and it's 14-13, Chiefs.
Kansas City's defense steps up, Tony Romo drops back, rolls right and is stripped from behind by Ron Parker and he recovers the fumble.
And the Chiefs match last year's victory total with a 17-16 win.
-----------------
The St. Louis Rams hit the road for the first time this season heading south to Atlanta to visit an old friend.
The Falcons signed free agent Steven Jackson in the offseason.
St. Louis has not started a season 2-and-0 since they won the NFC championship in 2001.
But Atlanta would jump on the Rams early, Matt Ryan throws to Steven Jackson in the flat, he scores from eight yards out and it's 7-0, Falcons.
Then Ryan would go over the middle to Julio Jones, he's behind the defenders, breaks a shoelace tackle, and takes it to the house, 81 yard touchdown connection and it's 14-0, Falcons.
Sam Bradford trying to get the Rams going, but this pass is picked off by Osi Umenyiora - he goes back the other way, a 68 yard pick six, and it's 21-0, Atlanta.
Bradford would finally find the endzone in the third quarter, this six yard touchdown pass to the rookie Tavon Austin, but too little, too late, and Atlanta wins 31-24.
-----------------
In baseball last night, Yadier Molina had a homer and three singles, and Matt Adams belted a two run homer as the Cards beat Seattle 12-2.
The Pirates won so the Cards and Pittsburgh are still tied for the lead in the NL Central.
In Detroit, Alex Avila belted a pair of homers, the second in the bottom of the eighth and the Tigers beat the Kansas City Royals,  3-2.
