Kansas City, Mo. Kansas City's 12-game losing streak "is taking a toll on everybody," says the weary-looking quarterback who'll try to end the streak this week.
"It gets old. It's tough," Damon Huard said. "All we need is one win. You start with one."
For the second time in three games, Huard will start at quarterback for the winless Chiefs, on Sunday against the high-scoring Denver Broncos (3-0).
A career backup who has had both good games and bad in a well traveled 12-year career, Huard was benched last week while Tyler Thigpen made his first NFL start against Atlanta.
But after throwing three interceptions in a lopsided loss, Thigpen goes back to the bench and Huard gets elevated once again.
In the meantime, regular starter Brodie Croyle is not expected to return from an opening-day shoulder injury until mid-October.
