Hail Mary gives Chiefs first touchdown in 12 quarters

Breaking news: The Kansas City Chiefs have scored a touchdown.

For the first time since the second quarter of their November 13 game against the Broncos, the Chiefs got into the end zone today at Soldier Field — thanks to a Hail Mary pass from Tyler Palko to Dexter McCluster.

The Chiefs had been doing nothing offensively throughout the first half, and Palko had been benched for Kyle Orton, who promptly got hurt on his first play. But with the Chiefs having no choice but to turn back to Palko after Orton got hurt, Palko finally completed a few passes and got the Chiefs down to the 38-yard line with time for one last play in the first half.

From there Palko launched a pass into the end zone, and when Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher tried to knock it down (when he probably could have intercepted it), he instead knocked it right into McCluster’s hands for a touchdown.

In a game that’s setting offensive football back 50 years, the Chiefs lead the Bears 7-3 at halftime.

    Caleb Hanie is a disaster right now. O-line is playing really well, run game is giving him lots of 3rd and 4’s, and he’s rifling passing 3 yards over/around/behind his receivers. Reminds me of watching the Bears pre Cutler.

    *cries*

    Maybe Palko should just throw it up every time.
