DB picks right day to boast

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - It's time for people to start taking notice when Greg Wesley makes bold predictions.

Right before a game against Miami in 2002, Kansas City's free safety said he would get three interceptions, and did. Then Sunday he picked off three of Tom Brady's passes after telling teammates he would, and Sammy Knight grabbed a fourth.

Larry Johnson ran for 119 yards and a touchdown as the Chiefs stayed within two games of Denver in the AFC West. The Patriots remained two ahead of Buffalo in the less-competitive AFC East.

"Maybe I should do it more often," Wesley said. "I had three the other time, but it doesn't compare to this."

He had tight end Tony Gonzalez to verify his prediction.

"I said, "How many are you going to get for me?"' Gonzalez said. "He said three."

Brady was high on many throws. Three of the interceptions were deflected, including Knight's on a pass that bounced off Tim Dwight's hands.

Two of Wesley's interceptions set up field goals by Lawrence Tynes, who tied a league record with four field goals in a quarter. He hit from 25, 30, 33 and 47 yards in the second.

NOTABLE: Chiefs linebacker Shawn Barber was active for the first time since sustaining a knee injury last November.
