The Kansas City Chiefs got into the Halloween spirit, scaring the heck out of their fans with a last second 13-10 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

It was a strange game with a lot of twists and turns and while there were mistakes made along the way, there were also a few players who stood out and helped the team get the victory.

Let’s give out the game balls.

Offense:

Jamaal Charles

No real question here. Charles was sensational Sunday leading the team in both rushing and receiving. He had 177 yards on the ground and 61 through the air. All in all, Charles accounted for 244 of the team’s 414 yards. There were other key plays made by others on the offense but without Charles, those plays wouldn’t have mattered.

Honorable Mentions: Tony Moeaki and Matt Cassel deserve mentioning as well. Neither made much of an impact in regulation but they showed up on KC’s final drive and led the team to the win.

Defense:

Tamba Hali

It was a real team effort for the Chiefs on the defensive side of the ball but in the end, it was Hali pressuring Buffalo QB Ryan Fitzpatrick into an intentional grounding penalty that enabled the Chiefs to get the ball back and win the game. Hali continues his pro bowl season.

Honorable Mentions: Eric Berry, Wallace Gilberry, Derrick Johnson, Brandon Flowers and Andy Studebaker.

Special Teams:

Ryan Succop

This kid showed a lot of guts yesterday. He hit his first kick perfectly only to see it blown off course by the swirling winds at Arrowhead. Succop stayed calm, went back to the sideline and continued to work on his kicking. He made adjustments for the wind and when he got his chance, sent the Chiefs to 5-2.

Those are my game balls. Who gets yours?
