The Kansas City Chiefs made sure all of their fans got more than a few Halloween scares.
Todd Haley and the Chiefs kept the Buffalo Bills winless by winning the game in the final seconds of overtime on a Ryan Succop FG.
Succop had a chance to win the game earlier when he saw his 39-yard FG get blown off course by the swirling winds of Arrowhead.
The Bills also had their chances. Their first came at the end of regulation when the Bills found themselves on the KC 41-yard line with under a minute to go with the game tied. 10-10. Fitzpatrick dropped back to pass and was intercepted by Chiefs rookie and first round draft pick Eric Berry. The Chiefs failed to advance the ball and the game went in to overtime.
And that is when things got crazy.
After both teams traded punts in the overtime, the Bills got the ball on their own 10-yard line. They managed to drive all the way down to the Kansas City 34-yard line before the Chiefs held them to a 4th down.
Buffalo kicker Ryan Lindell came out to the field to attempt a 53-yard field goal. The ball was snapped and Lindell knocked through the uprights.
But Chiefs’ coach Todd Haley had called timeout forcing Lindell to make the kick again.
The Chiefs, with new life, drove down the field on the legs of Jamaal Charles who finished the day with 22 carries for 177 yards. KC ran their way to the Buffalo 21-yard line.
Chiefs’ kicker Ryan Succop trotted out on to the field and predictably, was iced by Bills’ coach Chan Gaily.
The hold was god, the kick was straight but the wind was strong and Succop’s kick was blown off course.
The Bills took over at their own 29-yard line. Ryan Fitzpatrick drove them all the way down to the Kansas City 42.
Here is where things got really interesting.
On 3rd and 6, Fitzpatrick was called for intentional grounding after getting heavy pressure from Chiefs’ linebacker Tamba Hali. The penalty moved the Bills back to their own 43 with just over a minute left in the overtime.
With both teams out of timeouts, Gailey elected to punt to the Chiefs rather than go for it on 4th and 25, even though there was little to no chance his team would get the ball back. Essentially, it seemed as though Gailey was playing for the tie.
The Chiefs, however, weren’t.
Taking over at their own 31-yard line with 1:13 left in regulation, Matt Cassel led the Chiefs on an 8-play, 53–yard drive to the Buffalo 16.
Cassel, who struggled most of the day, came alive on the drive finding Charles for 16 yards, and TE Tony Moeaki twice for passes of 18 and 11 yards.
After positioning the ball on the right hash mark to account for the wind, the Chiefs called again on Ryan Succop to win the game.
He did just that, blasting through the winning FG as the overtime expired.
Chiefs 13, Bills 10.
