NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Ryan Succop kicked six field goals, one to force overtime in the final seconds and another from 31 yards to lift the Kansas City Chiefs to a 27-24 victory over the winless New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Succop’s 43-yard field goal with 3 seconds left completed a methodical comeback by Kansas City (1-2) after the Saints (0-3) had cashed in on a pair of Chiefs turnovers to go ahead 24-6 in the third quarter. Kansas City needed only one touchdown to win, a 91-yard run by Jamaal Charles, who finished with 233 yards rushing and 55 yards receiving. The Chiefs also got a safety in the fourth quarter on Justin Houston’s third sack of the game. Drew Brees passed for 240 yards and three touchdowns, but missed all six of his passes through the fourth quarter and overtime.
