Unbeaten Chiefs rally to take lead against Buffalo

AP

Oops.

Holding a 10-3 lead and facing 3rd-and-goal at the Kansas City one-yard-line early in the third quarter, the Bills made a potentially game-altering mistake.

Quarterback Jeff Tuel threw a short pass intercepted by Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith, who returned it 100 yards for the game-tying touchdown. The pass appeared to be intended for wideout T.J. Graham.

The Chiefs, who are attempting to run their record to 9-0, would later add a Ryan Succop field goal to take a 13-10 third-quarter lead at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, New York.

On the Bills’ next drive, Buffalo drove into Kansas City territory, but a fourth-down pass intended for Graham sailed long and incomplete.

  1. Joe’s F5 button must be broke, didn’t refresh in time to be the first poster on a Chief’s thread. LOL guy spends more time hating the Chiefs then he does rooting for his won team.

  2. The clock is gonna strike midnight on Cinderella… On another note, is Alex Smith done anything more than manage the game?

  3. 9-0!!! Make all the excuses you want but it is what it is. We didn’t make our own schedule, won 2 games last year, new staff and have 30 NEW players on our roster. If you don’t see something impressive in that, you’re all idiots!!

  4. No offensive touchdowns is supposed to be impressive? If so I hear ATARI is re-releasing the 2600… Might want to grab one..lol

  5. How about this….Kansas City is a garbage football team. Bills Defense is 100 times better. They have to be the luckiest team in the NFL to play a 3rd string QB who almost beat them. And how about this too….if you are 70 years old, you shouldn’t be a Ref in the NFL…..Chandler never moved on the offside call. Goodwin also caught theball too. Alex Smith is a garbage QB. Chiefs runs game, shut down by the Bills Def all day long. Denver will slaughter you!!! Bills, only team in the NFL that are down to a 3rd string QB and they made the Chiefs look like chumps. OVER RATED. Denver will beat you guys by at least three touchdowns……Bills offense ran all over you, all day long. The most overrated team I have ever seen.

  6. sigh. this is how you win in the playoffs. ugly. and the offense makes plays when they need to. today KC had some awful drops that cost them 2 TD’s. if those happen then yes, against better teams they lose

    but those better teams can fumble and throw picks as well, and those better teams continue to lose (cincy to browns) to teams that KC gets no credit for beating

    just give credit where its due.

  7. with that defense, and that punter they have keeping teams inside their own 20 constantly, often inside their own 5, it is very hard to score touchdowns against that team.

    9 games, none over 17 points, no matter who you play in today’s NFL, that is an impressive stat.

  8. its like people forget how the pats won their first with brady. a man named romeo had a defense that made plays, and had a lot of talent.

    then there were those steeler teams, and giant teams, that sure as heck didn’t win behind superior offense.

  9. Congrats Chiefs! Another win against a team with a losing record. So far, all we can deduce about this team is that they can beat teams with losing records. Allowing over 225 yards on the ground when you have a 3rd stringer quarterbacking the team is pretty sad.

    Soon, the season will get tougher- the Chiefs will actually have to play teams with winning records-something they haven’t done yet. Enjoy it now, Chiefs fans, because it’s about to get hilarious!

    sigh. this is how you win in the playoffs. ugly. ==================================
    So you’ll be facing all teams with losing records in the playoffs?

    Good luck with that.

  11. I thought this was the week we were supposed to lose. What happened? The Chiefs Defense happened. The Chiefs keep winning while everyone cries about being lucky and not looking pretty. You can all deal with it.

  12. The Bills are 3-6, and I know that a team is what their record says they are.
    But damn!… The Bills are sooooo close to becoming a really good football team!
    If they can just stop stepping on their own shoelaces, they will start winning more games.

  13. Thank god the Jills are pathetic. One of the worst teams in the league. We just beat you basically without a QB.

    Alex Smith sucks outloud, and all we do is win. If the Chiefs EVER get a real QB, watch out.

  14. The average rank for opponents in regards to points per game is 23rd. Here are the rankings in PPG for all Chiefs opponents:

    Jacksonville 32
    Dallas 2
    Philadelphia 13
    NYG 27
    Tenn 25
    OAK 28
    Houston 30
    Cleveland 24
    Buffalo 13

    The only legitimate offense that this team shut down is Dallas and maybe Philly, although Philly only scored a total of 10 points in its last two games against NYG and Dallas. The Bills have put up points, but not when their third-string QB is in there. The Chiefs defense might be pretty good, but it’s nothing special.

  15. It’s sad Frank isn’t it. Look back, earlier in the week ALL YOU HACKS said this was the week we’d lose. I said then that WHEN we win, it would be the same crap again…..got lucky, beat another losing team,blah, blah, blah.
    Guess what….that’s exactly whats happening because you people don’t understand that a great defense will take you alot further than a great offense………………….

  16. One thing this season has proved. Nate Hackett knows how to run his offense up and down the field but has issues on the goal line. Has happened more than once…Bills defense and RB’s deserved better fate. (again)

  17. LOL I love all the haters, Chiefs win because their lucky, Chiefs win because they have a soft schedule, Chiefs win because they play teams with a 3rd string QB. How about this…. Chiefs just win……LOL Spend more time being fans of your team and less being haters.

    ==================================
    It’s good that you’re a realist. The Chiefs did beat a 3rd string QB, and they do have a soft schedule. Prior to beating the Bills, they faced teams with the following PPG average ranking in the NFL: 27th, 25th, 28th, 30th, and 24th- so what they are proving is that their defense is better than the offenses in the bottom 25% of the league. That’s not really that impressive.

  19. Funny how all anyone can talk about is the records of teams KC has beat. Or that they’re playing such a soft schedule. Maybe we should take into account that part of the reason for the poor records of these teams is the fact that they have to play the entire AFC WEST. Wich involves playing against the highest scoring offense in the conference, the lowest point allowing defense and one of the best well rounded teams. Hell, even the raiders are playing well enough to give anyone a game this year. So yeah if a team has to run the Afc West gauntlet they’re liable to come away with loosing records. (Not that im willing to say thats what happened to Jax, they jusy flat suck.) This team is that good. Are they “the best” probably not, but they can compete with anybody. And at week nine are already cruisin to the playoffs. If youre not impressed good for you, how’s your team doin?

  20. The AFC West gauntlet? The Broncos are the only legitimate team in the AFC West. The Chiefs have won against soft offenses.

    Are you referring to the Chargers as one of the “best well-rounded teams”? If well-rounded means having the same amount of losses as wins, then you’re right on target, since they are 4-4.

    And the Raiders are playing well enough to give anyone a game? They gave Philly quite a game, as well as giving up 7 touchdown passes to the great Nick Foles. 2 out of their 3 wins have come against Jacksonville and Pittsburgh. Their 3rd win came against the “well-rounded” Chargers.

    The AFC West is hardly a gauntlet for any team to run through.
