The start of the 2013 season couldn’t have gone worse for Kansas City but the Chiefs quickly turned things around.
Kansas saw their first possession end in a blocked punt that rolled out of the end zone for a safety. But Jacksonville’s offense never scored as the Chiefs posted a 28-2 win in the opener.
Alex Smith was 21-of-34 for 173 yards and two first half touchdowns in his Chiefs’ debut while Jamaal Charles added 77 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
Tamba Hali led the defensive charge as he picked off a Blaine Gabbert pass and ran it back 10 yards for the game’s final score. Jacksonville managed just 178 yards of offense, averaging just 2.5 yards per play. Kansas City recorded six sacks.
