Panthers...34 Chiefs...0

October 06, 2008|From the Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Kansas City Chiefs Coach Herm Edwards came up to Carolina Panthers Coach John Fox an hour before kickoff and gave him a big bear hug.

But the second matchup of the former San Diego State defensive backs was no fair fight: DeAngelo Williams had 123 yards rushing and scored three touchdowns, and Carolina's 34-0 victory lifted the Panthers' record to 4-1 and handed Kansas City its first shutout in nearly six years.

The only highlight for the Chiefs (1-4), who ended a franchise-record 12-game losing streak last week with a victory over Denver, was a personal milestone. Tony Gonzalez caught a six-yard pass from Damon Huard in the first half to move past Shannon Sharpe for the NFL lead in career receiving yards for a tight end.

Quoteworthy: "I didn't see that coming at all. We were a confident team after last week's game." -- Herm Edwards, Chiefs coach
