September 9, 2007 • Reliant Stadium • 70,080

After falling to the Texans 20-3 in Week One of the 2007 regular season, the Chiefs were looking for a redo. A pair of special teams miscues from Kansas City and a 77-yard TD pass for Houston helped the Texans jump to a 10-0 halftime lead and the Chiefs could never recover.

The game’s opening minutes unfolded almost exactly according to script for the Chiefs. After forcing the Texans off the field with a three-and-out to start the game, QB Damon Huard and the Kansas City offense engineered a 15-play, 76-yard drive that took 7:05 off the clock. The contest began to deviate from the plan when the Chiefs drive stalled at the Texans 12-yard line and rookie K Justin Medlock pushed his 30-yard field goal attempt wide left.

Kansas City dodged a bullet late in the first quarter when S Jarrad Page intercepted QB Matt Schaub in the end zone. Schaub had bootlegged to the perimeter, but Page stepped in front of an errant pass intended for WR Andre Johnson, keeping the game tied at 0-0.

The Chiefs wouldn’t be able to hold Houston off the board for long as WR Eddie Drummond fumbled a punt return at the Chiefs 26-yard line. The Texans converted the turnover into three points on a 26-yard field goal from K Kris Brown.

After a Chiefs punt on the ensuing possession, that 3-0 count turned into a 10-0 deficit for Kansas City on the Texans next play from scrimmage. Off a nice play-action fake from Schaub, Johnson caught a pass behind the Chiefs secondary and raced 77 yards for a touchdown with 6:00 left before halftime.

The second half started in disastrous form as TE Kris Wilson fumbled the third play from scrimmage when CB Jamar Fletcher delivered a blow just as he caught a pass from Huard. DE Mario Williams then scooped up the loose ball and ran 38 yards untouched for a touchdown and an imposing 17-0 Texans lead. The Chiefs challenged the ruling on the field as it appeared uncertain whether Wilson had control of the ball and was able to make a “football move.” However, the play was upheld by instant replay.

Kansas City cracked the scoreboard late in the third quarter after an 11-play, 63-yard drive resulted in a 27-yard Medlock field goal. Huard completed six of seven passes for 62 yards, including a 25-yard connection to rookie WR Dwayne Bowe. The Chiefs penetrated the Red Zone for the second time in the game, but had to settle for three points when RB Larry Johnson was tackled short of the goal line on third-and-15.

Just when the Chiefs were threatening to get back into the game at 17-3, Houston sucked the life from the visitors with a 15-play drive that ate 10:26 off the clock. Three third-down conversions kept the clock and the chains moving before Brown knocked through a 28-yard field goal. That score put the Texans ahead 20-3 with only 5:00 left in the game. A late interception by DT Travis Johnson would then seal the Texans win.

Johnson, who rushed for a Chiefs single-game record 211 rushing yards in his last regular season game at Houston, was held to 89 total yards, including 43 yards on 10 carries.
