Brady Quinn threw for 201 yards and two touchdowns and Jamaal Charles added 127 yards on the ground in the victory ... which is just the second of the season for the Chiefs.

Early Saturday morning, Belcher shot his girlfriend at their home, then drove to the team facility and thanked team personnel before he shot himself.

Belcher was 25.

The man's brain worked well enough to shoot her multiple times to make sure she was dead. He was also well enough to drive over to the practice facility to thank his coach and gm. His brain also worked well enough to understand he did something wrong and figure out that his life as a football star was over and shoot himself. His cousin Eric Oates has stated Belcher didn't experience and recent head trauma and it's also been said he had no unusual physical issues before Saturday, including those with concussions. Her murdered her in cold blood.

The only one this is a tragedy for is HER family and the Baby. He is a low life that lost it. He shot her then left the body and the baby. He then shot himself in front of others. He is a total selfish loser.

His girlfriend had a name - Kasandra Perkins. Honor her memory by not ignoring her identity in your stories, please.

It's a shame cowards like him don't just shoot themselves first, and leave innocent people live. Now a 3 mo baby has no parents.

I'm sorry but I must speak the truth , he was a selfish coward . He had no mental issues , ppl look at the whole picture , he was a jealous insecure selfish man . He didn't care that his mother and grandmother was in the home . He only cared about his feelings towards Kasandra going out . She had left him before , they just got back together thanksgiving . He didn't want her to go out . Most black men r insecure , yes they r . He wanted full control and he got it . He wasn't suffering from no damn head injuries , he had sense 2 know he didn't want 2 go to jail , when he heard the police coming he walk away and ended so he wouldn't have to face the music , he had sense to know he didn't want to go to prison ... He didn't care about his child at all , I have no respect for this murder monster . Someone said we don't what went on behind close doors , yes we do she told him she was leaving again b/c she can't b lick up in that house , he became extremely anger and went hot the gun and told her if he can't have her no one would . Zoey will never know her parents , all she will know my daddy kill my mother and himself when I was 3 mos old . So sad . Did he care for his baby , no he didn't . He think he was getting away with it when he took his life , not , he has to face God for what he did, he played God , I can't do that silly man.
