NFL Scores


Final Score: Kansas City 28, Jacksonville 2

Jacksonville,  FL  (Sports Network) -  The Andy Reid era  is off to a positive 
start for the Chiefs. 

The same certainly can't be said for Gus Bradley and Jacksonville. 

Alex Smith threw a pair of touchdown passes and Jamaal Charles ran for a score 
in Kansas City's 28-2 demolition of the Jaguars. 

Smith,  who was traded from San Francisco in the offseason, completed 21-of-34 
passes  for 173  yards. Charles  rushed for  77 yards  on 16  carries for  the 
Chiefs,  who went  2-14 last season, tied with Jacksonville for the worst mark 
in the NFL. 

The  Chiefs  (1-0) fired Romeo Crennel  after the season and replaced him with 
Reid, who was let go after 14 years as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Tamba  Hali returned  an  interception 10  yards  for a  score  in the  fourth 

That  was part  of  a brutal  performance for  Blaine  Gabbert, who  completed 
16-of-35 passes for 121 yards with a pair of interceptions. Justin Houston had 
three sacks and the Chiefs put Gabbert down six times. 

Gabbert  left the game in the final two minutes favoring his right forearm. He 
was replaced by Chad Henne. 

Maurice  Jones-Drew  rained 45 yards on  15 carries for the Jaguars (0-1), who 
were unable to move the ball past midfield until the fourth quarter. 

Henne's  pass  on 4th-and-goal with under  a minute left was tipped away. That 
secured  the  first time a team  has scored exactly  two points in an NFL game 
since  Dec. 12,  1993, when  the Cincinnati  Bengals lost  to the  New England 
Patriots, 7-2. 

It was Jacksonville's first game under Bradley, who replaced Mike Mularkey.
