Chiefs seek to rebound against Cardinals

Dwayne Bowe has a TD in five straight.

The storyline
The Chiefs are starting to look more like pretenders. Matt Cassel can't afford another poor game, but being at home has been huge for him and his teammates thus far.

Why you should watch
I tend to think if the Chiefs literally called nothing but alternating runs for Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones the entire game, they might still win. Kansas City's young defense needs to make some plays to try to restore some swagger.

Including the Super Bowl, Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has nine touchdown receptions in his last nine games against the AFC. ... Arizona's Joey Porter is third among active players with 97 sacks. ... The Chiefs are aiming for their first 5-0 start at home since 2003. ... Kansas City's Tamba Hali has a sack in three consecutive games.
