Chiefs Win On Tragic Day

An already challenging season for the Kansas City Chiefs only got tougher following Saturday's tragic events. The Chiefs avoided tying their longest losing streak in franchise history with a 27-21 win over the Carolina Panthers at Arrowhead Stadium. On Saturday, linebacker Jovan Belcher fatally shot his girlfriend before taking his own life at the team's facility. Belcher shot his girlfriend, 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins, multiple times after the two had argued at home. Minutes after the first shooting, Belcher drove to the Chiefs' training facility and spoke with team personnel, including head coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli, before taking his own life with a self-inflicted gunshot. The couple leaves behind their three-month-old daughter, an orphan.

Alex Collins ran for 130 yards and three touchdowns as the Missouri Tigers fell to Arkansas, 28-3, Friday afternoon at Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The defense for Mizzou could have hardly started any better, as they allowed positive yardage on just one of Arkansas' first eight plays. In all, five of those eight plays went for negative yardage, including a Ricky Hatley sack to give the defense two three-and-outs to start the game.
