Chiefs_vs_raiders_bae7
As Kansas City kicker Ryan Succop lined up for a 31-yard field goal in overtime, fans started filing out of the Superdome. Those who stuck around looked on in dread as New Orleans' nightmare of an offseason continued to bleed into the regular season. Succop drilled his club-record sixth field goal of the game, punctuating an 18-point comeback that made the Chiefs 27-24 upset road winners on Sunday. The Saints fell to 0-3 since head coach Sean Payton was suspended for a season in the NFL's bounty probe - a stark reversal of fortune for a team that made the playoffs each of the past three years. ''We don't know how we're supposed to act right now,'' interim head coach Aaron Kromer said of being winless through Week 3. ''We had a chance today. We're getting close, but close is not good enough.'' Still, Drew Brees described the Saints as a team that won't quit. ''In a lot of situations there's probably teams that ...

Chiefs suddenly have new life after beating Saints

The Chiefs were trailing New Orleans 24-6, well on their way to a third straight humiliating defeat. Then the defense stiffened, Jamaal Charles started to gouge the Saints for big yards and Kansas City suddenly has new life.

Mike Tanier on Brees vs. Unitas

Mike Tanier has a nice piece on Drew Brees, Dan Marino, and Johnny Unitas: We should, of course, cherish the memories of Unitas and other legends. But we cannot do so at the expense of the present. Drew Brees is an all-time great at his prime. We must appreciate him while we have him. Every time we lapse into nostalgia, it’s a backhanded insult to a legacy that is still growing.

Brees: Saints urgently need consistency

(Eds: Updates throughout. With AP Photos.) By BRETT MARTEL AP Sports Writer Drew Brees readily acknowledges he is an eternal optimist - and won't buy into the notion that an 0-3 record is proof the Saints are doomed without suspended coach Sean Payton. When he reviewed video on Monday of New Orleans' collapse in a 27-24 overtime loss to Kansas City a day earlier, he took...

Saints Nation: Saints' Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades vs. Chiefs

Another game, another woeful performance by the defense. They were gashed for 510 yards and will continue their dominance as dead last in the NFL as a unit. They only gave up one touchdown, though, and honestly they played well enough to earn this team a win this week. They were bad, don't get me wrong, but it was an improvement over the first two weeks. Yes, 510 yards is shocking...

Week 3 NFL Preview: Kansas City Chiefs at New Orleans Saints

Coaching, contrary to popular belief, is important. Don’t believe me? Check the Saints 0-2 record to start 2012. No Sean Payton = No wins. It’s been that simple. Romeo Crennel, as solid of a coach as he may be, is also off to a 0-2 start which has left some scratching their heads. They haven’t had the toughest of starts schedule wise yet they come into Week 3 winless heading...

NFL Week 3: Vanderjacked Kansas City Style

Week 3 is over and the only thing you hear about is the replacement refs but the only guys that really matter are the kickers! The “Mess in Miami” is something that was not Vanderjacked worthy. Dan Carpenter missed two field goals, including one in overtime. Carpenter was only 2-4 on the day and certainly must take the brunt of the boos on this one. Of course not much went right...
