Brisbane will be bundled out of the NRL finals if they continue to offer their opposition a head start like they have in their past two matches.Thats the blunt assessment of Broncos backrower Sam Thaiday after his side overcame a gritty and determined Gold Coast Titans outfit 44-28 at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.Despite running away with a 16-point victory in the first elimination final, the Broncos conceded the first points in a match for the second week running.Brisbane trailed 12-0 against the struggling Roosters in Round 26, eventually overcoming the plucky chooks 24-14, while they also conceded first points against the Titans, after only three minutes.With a week two finals match-up pencilled in against the Storm or Cowboys, Thaiday believes the Broncos will not progress beyond next week if they start that match in the same manner they did against the Titans.If we play like we did in the first half well be way off the standards that weve set ourselves this year and the Storm or the Cowboys will be way too good for us, Thaiday said.There are a couple of areas we need to fix and well sit back over the weekend and see who we play.If we cant get up to play Melbourne Storm or the Cowboys we dont deserve to be in the semi-finals, so Im sure well flick a switch at training this week and prepare right and get ready for next weekend.Since a good start against Melbourne in round 24, where they led 14-4 at halftime, the Broncos have relied on finishing strongly in their past two matches.Its a trend that needs to be bucked immediately according to 253-game veteran Thaiday.Were getting jumped at the start of matches and we need to show a lot more energy and enthusiasm and not wait for a second-half run, he said.The later and deeper we go in the semi-finals will make it harder for us to come back from slow starts.Trailing by two points at halftime against the Titans, Brisbane scored five-tries-to-two in the second half in front of 43,170 fans who braved the wet conditions.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Nick Foles did exactly what the Kansas City Chiefs needed him to do against Jacksonville.Namely, he didnt make any major mistakes.Filling in for quarterback Alex Smith, who was out with a head injury, Foles threw for 187 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions on Sunday. That modest performance was all the stout Chiefs defense needed to hold on for a 19-14 victory , their fourth consecutive win.We got the win, Foles said, and there are things we can clean up and be even better for it all-around, and thats the exciting part about the game. Its better when you win and can improve.The Chiefs (6-2) wound up playing without five starters on offense.Along with Smith , running back Spencer Ware was inactive with a knee injury and offensive guard Parker Ehinger is out for the year with a knee injury. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin left in the first quarter with a groin injury and did not return, and tight end Travis Kelce was ejected in the fourth quarter.Not that it mattered. The guys on defense were up to the task.They held Blake Bortles to 22-of-41 passing for 252 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, one of four turnovers by the Jaguars (2-6) on the afternoon. And they made the play of the game when they held on fourth down deep in their territory with less than 2 minutes left in the game.Theyre one out of 14 on third down. We had 205 yards rushing and five penalties. It comes down to turnovers, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley. We didnt get them.Here are some of the takeaways from the Chiefs 10th consecutive home win:BORTLESS BLUNDERThe interception Bortles threw was followed by another embarrassing mistake: a chop block. Rule changes this year made chop blocks illegal across the board, and Bortles was hit with a flag for delivering one far away from the play after Ramik Wilson had picked off the pass.The Jaguars third-year starter was the first quarterback to be flagged for the penalty since Jay Cutler committed the same offense in Week 3 of the 2009 season.CATCHING KELCEKelce was ejected with 11:18 left in the game when Foles tries to hit him in the back of the end zone with Jaguars corneerback Prince Amukamara draped all over him.dddddddddddd No flag was thrown and Kelce disagreed, and voiced his displeasure to a nearby official, who then threw his flag -- for unsportsmanlike conduct.Kelce went ballistic , throwing his own towel as if it was a flag. And the official, having already thrown his flag, whipped off his hat and threw that -- another unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.Kind of lost my composure out there, Kelce said. Felt like an idiot.RUNNING BACK WOESThe Chiefs struggled to run the ball without Ware on the field. Charcandrick West was held to 39 yards on 13 carries, and Knile Davis ran three times for 10 yards one day after re-signing with Kansas City and completing a weeklong sojourn that began in Green Bay and included a stop with the Jets.The Chiefs are hopeful Ware passes his concussion test and can play next week at Carolina.HACKETTS JOBWhile the Jaguars were largely held in check, Nathaniel Hackett earned rave reviews in his first game as their offensive coordinator . He was promoted from quarterbacks coach to replace Greg Olson and directed a group that managed 252 yards through the air and 205 yards on the ground.I think we were able to create some stuff, Bortles said. Nate did a good job of kind of playing things off of each other. He does a good job of when Im not in a rhythm (asking), `What do you want? What passes do you want? How can I get you in a rhythm? Lets get you some completions.FORD TOUGHThe Chiefs only managed two sacks, but both were by Dee Ford. The former first-round pick had been considered a bust last two years, but already has nine sacks in eight games this season.He came close to another sack, too, wrapping up Bortles just before the quarterback threw it away.Im trying to forget about that play, Ford said. I really didnt trust it. While Im running Im thinking, `God, I hope this isnt a run play, and I was there, but he made a good play, got rid of it.--For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NF ' ' '
