Matt Cassel got the hook on Sunday, but he’s still Kansas City’s starting quarterback.
Chiefs coach Todd Haley confirmed that Cassel will start next week’s game against Buffalo; Brodie Croyle finished out Kansas City’s dismal 44-13 loss to the Broncos.
“To me, the game was at a point where it was going to be very difficult for us to even get in the game
and it was a chance to get Brodie some snaps,” Haley said.
Cassel has been uneven at best for the Chiefs, but he was victimized by a ton of drops Sunday and shoddy offensive line play.
The last two weeks showed how far the Chiefs have to go in the AFC West. The Chargers and Broncos outscored them by a combined total of 87-27. Brodie Croyle isn’t changing that.
