(FootballStL) – For the second time on the afternoon, Knile Davis ended up in the end zone for the Kansas City Chiefs.
The drive which went for 79 yards in just under seven minutes ended with Davis' three yard run into the end zone giving the Chiefs 34 unanswered points.
Since the opening drive which the Rams scored a touchdown on, they have been held to only 46 total yards of offense in their next nine possessions as they were held scoreless in the second and third quarters.
The Rams showed a bit of life in their final possession of the game, going with a no huddle offense. They had gone 73 yards in 10 plays before Austin Davis was sacked for the sixth and seventh time Sunday on consecutive plays.
The Chiefs then took over on down with a little under two and half minutes left. Mizzou favorite Chase Daniels then entered the game for the Chiefs as Andy Reid opted to sit Alex Smith for the remainder of the afternoon as the Chiefs held on to beat the Rams 34-7.
The Rams fall to 2-5 while the Chiefs move up to 4-3.

Then EJ Gaines failed to grab an interception as it hit the ground, but the Rams were flagged for an illegal contact penalty that gave the Chiefs an automatic first down at mid-field.
Smith and Jamaal Charles took the Chiefs down field as Charles punched the ball into the end zone, an extra point later and the game was tied at seven.

Cunningham took the opening kick-off and took the ball 49 yards for a great return that put the Rams in position to score.
On the Rams next possession, Davis was looking to connect deep once again with Britt, but he instead threw an interception. But the Rams defense forced Alex Smith and the Chiefs offense to punt for the second time, but the Rams were again unable to create any offense as Davis was sacked and the Rams were forced to punt for the first time Sunday.
