THIS WEEK IN CHIEFS HISTORY

September 27, 1998 (http://slam.canoe.ca/FootballNFL98Games/sep27_kc_phi.html)

KANSAS CITY 24, PHILADELPHIA 21

Philly still looking for win

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Nothing but chunks of ice and garbage lay on the turf at Veterans Stadium, the wreckage of another loss for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Even though they scored a few touchdowns and got the tough Philly fans back on their side, the winless Eagles lost 24-21 to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday for their worst start in 26 years.

Philadelphia native Rich Gannon's 57-yard completion to Joe Horn in the fourth quarter set up Donnell Bennett's third touchdown run as the Chiefs sent the Eagles to 0-4 for the first time since 1972.

"We handled them most of the game when no one gave us a chance," Eagles receiver Irving Fryar said. "Yeah, we're improving every week, but we're still 0-4. That's not a good thing."

Several hours after the game, the Eagles announced that Fryar had agreed to terms of a three-year contract extension heavy with incentives. Fryar, who turns 36 on Monday, is in his 15th NFL season.
The Eagles, who scored 15 points in their first three games, made it close when Rodney Peete passed to Duce Staley for a 17-yard TD with 61 seconds left. But the Chiefs (3-1) recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock.

It was closer than anyone thought it would be -- except Chiefs coach Marty Schottenheimer, who called it "exactly what we expected."

With Elvis Grbac and Andre Rison out with injuries, their replacements -- Gannon and Horn -- led the Chiefs to their ninth straight victory against NFC opponents. Grbac and Rison should be healthy for a more important AFC West matchup against Seattle at Arrowhead Stadium next week.

"I think this was a great win for us, because it showed character," said Chiefs linebacker Derrick Thomas, who failed to add to his league-leading seven sacks.

In the Chiefs' first visit to Philly, Gannon was 17-for-25 for 262 yards. Bennett rushed for 87 yards and three touchdowns.

"That team was 0-3?," Chiefs linebacker Anthony Davis asked. "They didn't play like they were 0-3. We were the ones that played like we were 0-3."

Pete Stoyanovich's 21-yard field goal got the Chiefs within 14-10 with 11:38 left, and the Kansas City defense forced a punt. On the first play, Gannon lofted a long pass to Horn, who beat Brian Dawkins. Bennett ran it in from the 7, and the extra point made it 17-14 with 8:41 left.

"They ran right through the defense, and there were some communication things going on when the ball was snapped," Eagles coach Ray Rhodes said. "That throw shouldn't have been there."

Former Eagles cornerback Mark McMillian seemed to wrap it up when his interception f Peete with 5:18 left led to Bennett's 5-yard TD run that made it 24-14.

But Peete capped an 80-yard, 12-play drive with a short pass to Staley, who broke two tackles and broke through for his third TD and Philadelphia's first touchdown passing this season.

"You can never relax in this game," said McMillian, whom the Eagles decided not to re-sign in 1995. "If they get that onside kick, who knows? We might still be out there playing."

Peete, starting for injured Bobby Hoying, was 21-for-36 for 260 yards. Fryar had five receptions for 57 yards, passing Charlie Joiner for eighth on the career list with 751 catches. Staley ran for 73 yards and scored all three Eagles touchdowns.

"It's not that we're not good enough to win," Fryar said. "We just don't know how to win."

Staley capped Philadelphia's second scoring drive with a 3-yard run for a 14-7 lead in the third. On the drive, Peete hit Fryar for gains of 18 and 10 yards, the 35-year-old receiver pumping his fists while down on both knees to exhort the crowd. Russell Copeland then leaped high for a 17-yard reception to the Chiefs 3.

Kansas City stopped Staley for no gain on a fourth-and-1 near midfield late in the third, as Philadelphia couldn't capitalize on a huge mistake by Gannon, who was penalized for being on the field while the Eagles punted.

I've decided to start featuring these, gochiefs.

The technology committee is still working on a new front page and when they get through, this weekly feature will definitely be there. Until then, it's stickied for a couple days.

Nicely done, Lord Maul...

Thanks. I wish there was a way to find earlier box scores, recaps and photos, but my limit is pretty much 1996. Occasionally I might be able to find something before 96 if it's a big game (ex. 49ers/Chiefs from 1994 a couple weeks ago). Box scores go back to 1990, and I think that's about the limit for getty images, as well.
