Matt Cassel has to leave the game early with an injury and it seems that Chiefs fans were happy to see him go. Brady Quinn took over for Cassel after he left the game and was greeted with an ovation by the KC crowd.

Cassel left the game with a head injury, but was threw 2 interceptions and fumbled the ball away on a quarterback sneak at the 1. He had 2 lost fumbles in the game. No wonder KC fans wanted him benched.

All signs point to Quinn starting next week for the Chiefs. Quinn led the team to a field goal in his only drive. This could be the end of the Matt Cassel era in KC.

The Chiefs lost to the Ravens, 6-9.
