THE MATCH-UP
Kansas City and St. Louis will square off in the latest installment of the Governor’s Cup series on Saturday at Arrowhead (8/26) when the Chiefs and Rams duel in the season’s third preseason contest for both clubs. Saturday’s outing will serve as a preview of a regular season meeting between the two clubs slated for November 5th at the Edward Jones Dome.

This weekend’s outing will give both clubs an opportunity to take a final look at their personnel before the NFL’s first mandatory cutdown day on Tuesday, August 29th when teams must trim their rosters to 75 players. All NFL clubs must cut their rosters to 53 players on Saturday, September 2nd.

Saturday’s contest will mark the debut of Herm Edwards on the Arrowhead sideline as Kansas City’s head coach. It also will serve as the initial meeting between Edwards and St. Louis head coach Scott Linehan as NFL head coaches. Linehan is in his first season as an NFL head coach, while Edwards joined the Chiefs after a five-year stint guiding the fortunes of the N.Y. Jets.

Kansas City enters Saturday’s game still seeking its initial victory in preseason play under Edwards. The Chiefs are coming off a 17-0 loss at the N.Y. Giants (8/17) after suffering a 24-14 loss in their preseason debut at Houston (8/12). St. Louis is 1-1 in preseason action. The Rams registered a 19-17 win in their preseason opener vs. Indianapolis (8/10) and suffered a 27-20 home loss vs. Houston (8/19).

While Kansas City and St. Louis have both changed head coaches since QB Trent Green was traded to the Chiefs from the Rams in 2001, Green has simply been a model of consistency over the past five seasons. During that five-year span, only Colts QB Peyton Manning (20,902) owns more passing yards than Green (20,117), who owns the eighth-best career rating (88.3) in Kansas City history.

Kansas City closes out its preseason schedule with a home date vs. New Orleans (8/31), while St. Louis concludes its preseason slate with a contest at Miami (8/31).
