KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Sometimes teams that enter the final game of the season needing half a dozen things to break their way get their wish.The Kansas City Chiefs went around all week grumbling at themselves for failing to make the playoffs for the eighth time in nine seasons.
Chiefs workhorse Larry Johnson packed the ball 33 times for 138 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Jaguars, setting the NFL record for most carries in a season.

The Chiefs paid tribute to Hunt with a moment of silence before the game and the video boards played tributes before and during the game. ... Green, who missed eight starts this year with a severe concussion, left the game briefly in the third quarter with a sprained left ankle after a hard hit from LB Clint Ingram. He returned later in the quarter, after Damon Huard led Kansas City on a scoring drive for a 35-17 lead. ... Jacksonville failed to become the fifth team in NFL history with two 1,000-yard rushers.
