Chiefs play­ers gath­ered in the tun­nel lead­ing to the field for a brief prayer be­fore their pregame stretch­ing. A few fans in the half-empty sta­dium held up signs ref­er­enc­ing the shoot­ings, and there was a moment of si­lence to re­mem­ber all vic­tims of domestic vi­o­lence.

Kansas City po­lice have not re­leased a mo­tive for the shoot­ings, which claimed the life of Belcher and 22-year-old Kasan­dra M. Perkins, and left a 3-month-old girl, Zoey, an or­phan.

“I’m just try­ing to get through the rest of to­day,” said the Chiefs’ Brady Quinn, who threw his first two touch­down passes in three years. “The emo­tions of what has taken place will prob­a­bly hit home for a few guys the next few days, when they re­al­ize what’s taken place.”

Cam New­ton threw for 232 yards and three TDs for the Pan­thers (3-9).

Pey­ton Hil­lis had a touch­down run for Kansas City (2-10), while Tony Moeaki and Jon Baldwin had scor­ing catches.
