Would the Saints Be Doing Better If Bountygate Had Never Happened?
The New Orleans Saints are now 0-3 after losing to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, 27-24.
The Saints had an 18 point lead in the third quarter but couldn’t hold on to it. This was the Chiefs’ first win of the season, they are 1-2.
A sixth record setting field goal by Kansas City’s Ryan Succop helped turn things around for the Chiefs. Succop made 6 perfect kicks during the game ranging from 25 to 45 yards.
A 91-yard touchdown run by Jamaal Charles started Kansas City’s comeback, then the Saints missed an opportunity to score when Drew Brees threw a pass intended for the Saints’ Devery Henderson and Stanford Routt of the Chiefs intercepted the ball near the end of the third quarter.
Saints interim head coach Aaron Kromer said, “We’re obviously disappointed, but not disheartened. We don’t know how we’re supposed to act right now.”
