KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Mike Cloud scored on a 15-yard run with 4:26 left in the game to cap a rally from a 17-7 deficit as the Chiefs beat the Seattle Seahawks 24-17 on Monday night.
Quarterback Elvis Grbac continued his recent resurgence, going 16-for-27 for 256 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions for the Chiefs. Grbac has nine touchdowns in his past three games.
Wide receiver Derrick Alexander, who beat Seattle cornerback Shawn Springs twice late in the third quarter, caught a 17-yard pass to get Kansas City within 17-14. Alexander caught five passes for 153 yards and a touchdown.
Pete Stoyanovich tied the score with a 27-yard field goal in the fourth quarter.
With the Chiefs trailing 17-7, Alexander got behind Springs for a 73-yard reception to the Seattle 22.
After Kimble Anders rushed for 5 yards, Grbac found Alexander in the end zone on a crossing pattern behind Springs and in front of two defenders with 2:15 left in the quarter.
Rian Lindell, making his first start, kicked a 27-yard field goal to complete a nine-play, 63-yard drive in which the Seahawks overcame two sacks of quarterback Jon Kitna to take a 17-7 lead.
Kitna threw a 23-yard pass to Darrell Jackson one play after he was sacked by John Browning. Ricky Watters' 32-yard run highlighted the drive.
The Chiefs failed in their attempt to break the on-site paid attendance record.
Kansas City simulcast the game on the Jumbotron at Kauffman Stadium, the home of the baseball Royals, but only 4,391 showed up. The Chiefs drew 78,502 at Arrowhead Stadium, across the parking lot from Kauffman.
The total attendance of 82,893 fell short of the 90,833 who saw the Los Angeles Rams and Chicago Bears play in 1958 at the Los Angeles Coliseum.
EAGLES 38, FALCONS 10: Brian Mitchell endeared himself to Eagles fans with the most productive game of his career.
Mitchell, a long-time nemesis of the Eagles when he played for Washington, had a combined 290 yards, including two long touchdowns within five minutes, for host Philadelphia.
"I never had a game like that. I'm having fun again," said Mitchell, who tied an NFL record with his 11th career touchdown on a return when he ran back a kickoff 89 yards in the fourth quarter.
