Chiefs 27, Panthers 21

Somber Chiefs win

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Just one day after linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend, then committed suicide (story, 5C), the Chiefs banded together to play their finest game of the season, beating the Panthers to end an eight-game losing streak.

"I'm just trying to get through the rest of today," said the Chiefs' Brady Quinn, who threw his first two touchdown passes in three years.

Peyton Hillis had a touchdown run for Kansas City. Ryan Succop hit two field goals, including a 52-yarder with 4:54 left that forced the Panthers to try for a touchdown to steal the win. Instead, they went three-and-out, and the Chiefs ran out enough clock.
