Cassel's afternoon was an unbridled disaster. He finished 9-of-15 passing for 92 yards with two interceptions and a costly fumble on a quarterback sneak to wipe out a potential third-quarter scoring drive.
Kansas City ate up 19-plus minutes of the first half by feeding Charles no less than 20 times. He turned that into 125 yards, marking the first time the Ravens have allowed a 100-yard rusher in the first half since December 1998.
Bottom line: The Chiefs can't trust Cassel. Not after today. Not after a season's worth of drive-killing turnovers.
Kansas City has yet to hold a lead in regulation this season, and that has everything to do with the 1-4 team's quarterback. You can't win games from behind with a turnover machine like Cassel at the wheel. We expect the driver to change before the leaves turn.
