Cowboys vs. Chiefs in Kansas City
(Dave Crome /October 11, 2009)
On the 50th Anniversary of AFL that started with the vision of Dallas' Lamar Hunt
, the team he started and later moved to Kansas City host the Dallas Cowboys
for just the 9th time.
The Cowboys have won 5 of the 8 meetings and both teams are wearking their throw back uniforms. The Chiefs have a red helmet with a white state of Texas, same helmets they wore when they were the Dallas Texans. They are wearing these uniforms for the first time since beating Houston in the 1962 AFL Championship game. The Cowboys adorn the uniforms they first wore upon breaking into the NFL
Adding to the atmosphere of this game, temperatures in the low 40's and the wind making it feel like it's in the 30's. Most players came out for warm up's with stocking caps, gloves and heavy sweats, but Cowboys tackle Marc Colombo got into the mindset with short sleeves. Roy Williams and Felix Jones are two Cowboys who were not braving the chilly temperatures, both are inactive and did not make the trip to Kansas City. Miles Austin will start for Williams and Tony Romo
will have to try to find ways to ressurect the passing game that has fallen to 12th in the NFL. He'll be attacking a Chiefs pass defense that is one of the worst in the league but before you get too excited about it, don't forget that Chiefs Head Coach Todd Haley is very familiar with Romo after a stint coaching the Cowboys Wide Receivers.
The Cowboys are looking to head to the bye week with a victory to make them 3-2 and are facing a desperate Chiefs squad that is trying to avoid its first 0-5 start since 1977.
