MIAMI -- The Kansas City Chiefs made a quick trip worth the trouble.
With Hurricane Wilma scrambling the schedule, the Chiefs arrived less than six hours before kickoff for a rare Friday night game, then shook off any flight fatigue to beat the Miami Dolphins, 30-20.
Trent Green threw for 289 yards last night against Miami's injury-depleted secondary, and the Chiefs totaled a season-high 462 yards while controlling the ball for nearly 42 minutes. Lawrence Tynes's three field goals included 51- and 52-yarders, the two longest kicks of his career.
Announced attendance was 68,350, but with the late scheduling change and rain in the area, the actual crowd totaled about 40,000.
Fans were jeering by Miami's second series. Gus Frerotte misfired on two potential touchdown passes and went 11 for 29, Ricky Williams lost 1 yard in six carries, and the defense gave up four scoring drives of eight plays or more.
Dolphins rookie Ronnie Brown carried eight times for 95 yards, including a 65-yard TD on the first play of the second half that reduced Miami's deficit to 14-13. Kansas City answered with a TD two plays later on a 35-yard run by Priest Holmes.
