NFL Dolphins at Chiefs

August 16, 2007

NFL Football Preseason - Miami Dolphins at Kansas City Chiefs (-3, 34.5) 8:00 PM EST

Trent GreenIn his first appearance in a Dolphin uniform, Green was booed during a performance that saw him complete just 6-15 passes for 60 yards with an interception against what is a very stout Jacksonville defense.

"Obviously, things didn't go as well as I had hoped," Green said. "One got batted down, one I got pushed out of the pocket and I tried to make a throw into the flat and it came up short. We did get into a little bit of a rhythm against a good defense and we got a field goal out of it.

It was definitely a night of learning and we'll go back and watch the tape and I still think there will be a lot of good things we can reflect on and build on." Overall the Miami offense generated just 267 total yards of offense.

Kansas City was even less impressive on offense in 16-12 loss to Cleveland. Neither second-year man Brodie Croyle nor veteran Damon Huard did much to distinguish themselves in preseason opener, which totaled only 83 total yards and three first downs in the first 30 minutes.

"They're both in the same boat right now," coach Herm Edwards said of the quarterback battle. "Our offense hasn't scored a touchdown. When we do, we'll probably ring a bell or something. But we've got to start scoring some points."

Chiefs fans will welcome back running back Priest Holmes, who is making a comeback from neck injury, though he is unlikely to play trying to get back into football condition.

Rumors persist that Larry Johnson is close to a new deal in Kansas City and could be signed before the weekend is out.

Miami is listed as a 3-point road underdog with a total of 34.5 at sportsbook.com. The Dolphins are 7-2 against the spread when dogs of three or more points in the preseason.

The Chiefs are only 14-20-1 ATS in August when favored and 5-5 against the number as a home favorite.
