Chiefs far from perfect

INDIANAPOLIS — Mike Hart rushed for the only touchdown of the game late in the fourth quarter as the Colts kept the Chiefs out of the end zone to knock off the last remaining unbeaten team 19-9.

Peyton Manning had a pedestrian day, completing 26 of 44 passes for 244 yards with an interception for the Colts (3-2), who rebounded from a last-second loss at Jacksonville in Week 4.

Hart and Joseph Addai each rushed for 50 yards, Reggie Wayne led the receiving corps with 75 yards on six grabs, and Indy's defense held Kansas City to 261 total yards.

"Mike did a nice job for us. That was a heck of an effort to get the ball in the end zone. He did some good things for us," Colts head coach Jim Caldwell said of Hart, who saw extra time after Addai went down with a shoulder injury in the third quarter.

Adam Vinatieri nailed four field goals, while his Chiefs counterpart, Ryan Succop, went 3-for-4, missing a 51-yarder in the final two minutes.

Matt Cassel threw for a mere 156 yards on 16 of 29 passing for the Chiefs (3-1), who were trying for their first 4-0 start since 2003. Jamaal Charles logged 87 yards on 16 carries and lost a fumble in the setback.

The Colts were the last unbeaten team to fall in 2009.
