Chiefs squeak by Bills on field goal as time runs out in OT

The Chiefs needed 75 minutes of gametime Sunday to beat the Bills, and even that was barely enough. 

Playing the wind correctly after a missed field goal earlier in overtime, Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop hooked a 35-yard field goal through the uprights to win 13-10 as time expired in overtime.

Jamaal Charles finished with 177 yards on 22 carries and was Kansas City’s leading receiver with four catches and 61 yards.  The Chiefs defense dominated the game in the first half, but the team couldn’t get a two score lead. Coach Todd Haley passed up on a short field goal on one failed fourth down conversion in the first half.

The Bills started to go on a few long drives in the second half.  Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick converted on a fourth-and-five touchdown to Stevie
Johnson with under two minutes left in regulation to tie the game.  The
Bills got the ball back four more times, but couldn’t score.

The 0-7 Bills continue to find excruciating ways to lose.  This time, it was their prized special teamers that let them down. 

All Pro punter Brian Moorman had a bad touchback early in OT, then shanked a punt to set up Kansas City’s game-winning score.  Kicker Rian Lindell had a chance to win, but knocked one off the uprights from 53 yards out in overtime.  He had nailed the kick moments before, but Chiefs coach Todd Haley had called time out before the play.

Everything seems to be coming up aces for the Chiefs, who learned they can’t expect to blow anyone out, even winless ones.  But with more than 200 rushing yards in four straight games, they remain very tough to beat in the new Arrowhead Stadium. 

At 5-2, the Chiefs will be very tough to catch in the AFC West if they just keep winning the games they should at home.

    When will Haley wake up and let Charles be the “main” RB?

    0-16 looks real for the bills

    Second week that C.J. Spiller probably cost the Bills the game. His fumble on a kickoff return late in the first half last week allowed the Ravens to score another TD before halftime. This week he had enough for a first down late in the first half, but he again fumbled. The Bills recovered the ball, but short of the first down and they did not make the first down. This forced them to punt to the Chiefs and on that drive KC got their only TD of the game. If Spiller had not fumbled, the Bills might have scored and the Chiefs might not have.

    The cheifs should be ranked no higher than #13 in this weeks power rankings “by the official rules of power rankings”

    Ugh, just when you think the Bills find the most excruciating way to lose, another week comes along and they top themselves.
    Please win a game.

    When will people quit talking about this? All of their RBs are playing great, the Chiefs are 5-2 and first in the AFC West. Who cares who the starting RB is???

    Bills’ Special Teams have had a more Special Ed vibe since about the time Parrish fumbled and cost us the game against New England.
    (Not to pick on only him; there are plenty of other goats on Special Teams – see Buffalo’s kicker at the end of regulation today.)
    As much as I like Fitz, I can definitely see why he’s seen as just a backup playing above his level – he’s got a real knack for killing drives and/or games with interceptions. He waited until the last few minutes of the 4th to throw his first INT, on a drive that could have won the game.
    I like the guy, but throws like that (and the floater that got intercepted) are why he isn’t a long-term solution at QB.

    Bills should have beaten the Chiefs. But luck prevailed for KC. Their crazy Coach (Mr. 4th and Gofer) doesn’t call the timeout and Buffalo walks away from the newly renovated Arrowhead Stadium with a win. Bills getting better but can’t close out another game. #1 Draft Pick here we come!

    Am I the only that Fitzpatrick played this match wearing his wedding ring? That must be a first for a non kicker/punter.

    The Bills found a way to lose this one, I wouldn’t feel TOO good about this win if I was a Chiefs fan, not at all.

    WTF?
    The Chiefs just plain beat an inferior opponent.
    That’s all that needs to be said.

    The bills linebackers stink. Their o-tackles stink. Spiller can’t play special teams. I am also a believer that icing the kicker is bush league and should be illegal. Fitzpatrick shows signs of being brilliant and of being a dud. Can’t believe the chiefs didn’t kill them. Guess they are not that tough. Bottom line…its a very long season and I am exhausted.

    I was really hoping to go 0-15-1

    I can’t say that I noticed it, but my friend’s wife pointed it out to us. But I think she’s getting tired of rooting for the Bills, only to be rewarded with loss after loss after loss. Luckily, her husband will never let her change affiliations (not that I think she ever would anyways)

    ToddHaleyKicksASS- There are such things as degree of wins when you are looking at trends and the length of the season. The Chiefs walk away with a Game win and a moral loss IMO. Let’s get real, how are you going into OT when your RB has 170+yards carrying the ball. WOW Chiefs were doing something wrong, and the only time they did something right was when they gave the ball to Charles. How many times did Buffalo have to hand the game over to the Chiefs….:03…:02…:01… as the seconds tick off in over time to a now 0-7 Buffalo Bills who are playing their second string QB, don’t have a left tackle, and have a “hybrid defense”. The Bills are the joke of the league currently and they are taking top 5 teams to OT. Why? Because top 5 times don’t stay top five teams in week 18 when it is week 8. The best call made was icing the kicker. What a joke of a game. The Bills suck and made the Chiefs look bad. Glad I’m not a KC fan, can’t even root for the Royals in that town. uck
