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 for Miami, as the Dolphins called a time out after blocking a Jet field goal only too lose on the next attempt. Laces Out Dan!
There was a different story in Kansas City. 2009′s Mr. Irrelevant came through big time! Ryan Succop kicked his way to a Chiefs record. He was 6-6 from Field Goal range including a long of 45. Succop won the weekly award twice last year and was probably next in line to the winner David Akers. Succop’s day led his team to a 27-24 victory over the hapless Saints in overtime. The Chiefs offense and success will depend on the foot of the former South Carolina Gamecock.
Succop joins week 1 winner Akers and Week 2 winner Lawrence Tynes as this years Vanderjacked winners. Last year’s first repeat winner was Sebastian Janikowski (weeks 1 and 12) and there were a total of 12 weekly winners. Just remember before you go out in the morning, look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself, “I will get VANDERJACKED!”

KANSAS CITY, Mo. The last time Chiefs guard Ryan Lilja had to play center in an NFL game before last Sunday was...well...never.
In fact, Lilja, who now becomes the Chiefs' starting center because of Rodney Hudson's season-ending injury, can't remember playing the position in college or high school or even Pee Wee football, for that matter.
OK, there was that one time...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. Desperate times, desperate measures. Feel like playing a little center, Eric Winston?
"No, no," the hulking Chiefs tackle said Monday, the first Victory Monday of Kansas City's young 2012 campaign. "We're in deep trouble if that happens, I promise you that."

A veteran of 138 games, Hochstein has spent time...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs put cornerback Jacques Reeves on injured reserve Tuesday.
The veteran defender has been dealing with a hamstring issue that kept him out of the Chiefs' 27-24 overtime victory at New Orleans on Sunday. Kansas City plays San Diego this Sunday.

Week 3 brought us a match-up between two teams desperately in search of their first win. The New Orleans Saints played host to the Kansas City Chiefs in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday. After losing by at least two touchdowns in their first games of the season, the Chiefs found themselves in the same predicament well into the third quarter against the Saints.However, Kansas...

NEW ORLEANS - Sunday was like a homecoming for Jerrell Powe. The former Ole Miss football player now with the Kansas City Chiefs came off the field smiling when he saw familiar faces. And also because his team had just won in dramatic fashion.
Nothing went right for the Kansas City Chiefs in their first two games while little could have gone better for the San Diego Chargers.
Week 3 was a considerably different story.
The Chiefs look to build off their stunning comeback victory Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium, where the Chargers are hoping to bounce back from an ugly no-show.
San Diego's early season struggles were...
All good things came in three's today so why stop the flow now. It was whacky improbable and hard fought. But the Chiefs prevailed over the Saints thanks to six field goals by kicker Ryan Succop.
