NFL: Kansas City Trounces Miami in Rare Friday Night Contest


Priest Holmes ran for two touchdowns to lead the Kansas City Chiefs to a 30-20 win over the host Miami Dolphins in a rare Friday night National Football League contest.

The game, originally scheduled for Sunday, was moved up with Hurricane Wilma expected to move toward Florida in the coming days.

The Chiefs arrived in Miami just six hours before kickoff to become the first NFL team in history to travel and play on the same day.

Kansas City dominated the game, totaling 462 yards of offense and controlling the ball for nearly 42 minutes. Holmes and fellow running back Larry Johnson each rushed for more than 90 yards and quarterback Trent Green passed for 289 yards.

Miami's first round draft pick Ronnie Brown provided one the few highlights for the Dolphins, scoring on a 65-yard run in the third quarter.
