NFL: Kansas City 10, Chicago 3

Dec. 4, 2011 at 5:20 PM   |   Comments

CHICAGO, Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Tyler Palko hit Dexter McCluster on a Hail Mary scoring pass before halftime Sunday and the Kansas City Chiefs held on a for a 10-3 decision over Chicago.

McCluster's 38-yard reception provided the game's only TD. He also ran for 61 yards on nine carries as the Chiefs (5-7) snapped a four-game losing skid.

Palko used good ball management skills, tossing for 157 yards, and the Chiefs defense sacked Bears quarterback Caleb Hanie seven times -- three by rookie Justin Houston -- in the victory.

The Bears (7-5) finished with just 181 total yards for the game, much of which they played without star running back Matt Forte, who exited in the first quarter with a right knee injury.

Hanie finished 11-of-24 through the air for 133 yards and was picked off three times.
