Late touchdown by Sippio lifts Chiefs past Bears

Aug 8, 2008 - 3:28 AM CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Former Arena League star Bobby Sippio reeled in a 24-yard touchdown reception from Tyler Thigpen with 1:08 remaining in the fourth quarter as the Kansas City Chiefs rallied for a 24-20 triumph over the Chicago Bears on Thursday.

Both teams' set of quarterbacks didn't distinguish themselves.

Chicago's Kyle Orton was 7-for-10 for 56 yards, while Rex Grossman completed 4-of-8 passes for 44 yards - included a 25-yard touchdown pass to Garrett Wolfe.

Kansas City's quarterback situation might be equally challenged. Coach Herm Edwards started third-year quarterback Brodie Croyle, who was 5-of-9 for 73 yards on the Chiefs' opening drive, eating 8:45 and resulting in a five-yard touchdown run by Larry Johnson.

Croyle passed the reins to veteran quarterback Damon Huard after going 6-for-10 for 82 yards in the first quarter. Huard showed he can still play, going 6-of-8 for 77 yards and a touchdown.






  • senorpepr Go Bobby Sippio! I'd love to see him bring some of his talents from the Chicago Rush (Arena Football) to the Chiefs...
