A wild first half which featured touchdowns everywhere settled down a little after the break and Michael Pittman’s second and third TD runs of the day proved the difference on a day when the Chiefs amassed over 400 yards against the Tampa defense.   Dwight Smith had a huge day on defense and was awarded the game ball for his interception and touchdown-saving chase down and fumble recovery to prevent another score.
