Brady Quinn is likely to start his first game since 2009 for the Kansas City Chiefs when they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Their normal starter, Matt Cassel, had been having a sub-par season before suffering a concussion last week against the Baltimore Ravens.
Brady Quinn is the likely starter for Kansas City after Matt Cassel suffered a concussion in last week's ugly 9-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Quinn played for the first time since 2009 Sunday, and though he completed both of his passes he was unable to change the score. Quinn was highly-touted and earned a first-round pick in 2007, becoming the hypothetical savior of the Cleveland Browns. Perhaps he's improved in the past three years -- he completed 52.4 percent of his passes in Cleveland before being traded to the Denver Broncos, where he did not play behind Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow. Chiefs fans hope he can be an improvement over the injured Cassel, who has nine picks and four lost fumbles against only five touchdowns.
Say what you will about the Buccaneers, at least they've been coming close to getting wins. They've lost three in a row, but that skid features a game they led against the New York Giants, a 16-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, and a loss on a last-second Billy Cundiff kick against the Washington Redskins. Meanwhile, the Chiefs have had trouble staying close, losing games by 16, 17, and 18 before last week's loss. Their one win looked to be impressive, as they took down the New Orleans Saints, but that team has disappointed and also only has a single win on the season.
