Chiefs Cap 17 Play Drive with a Succop Field Goal

3 to 0, in favor of the Kansas City Chiefs. 2:01 left in the first quarter.

Matt Cassel just led the Chiefs on a scoring drive that featured WR Bobby Wade and RB Larry Johnson. The Chiefs converted a third down and a fourth down to get Ryan Succop a 23-yard field goal.

And an onside kick by the Chiefs! The Raiders will get the ball....

Here are some notes on the first quarter:

  • On the first drive the Chiefs forced a three and out.  The series included an awful five yard incompletion from JaMarcus Russell and a nice deflection from Brandon Flowers.
  • Bobby Wade received a 66 yard Lechler punt and was tackled immediately in the open field by an Oakland defender.  Not a good start for Wade as a Chief.
  • Quinten Lawrence had a nice run on a reverse
  • The Chiefs offense went three and out on their first two drives
  • Todd Haley indicated before the game he needs to stick to the running game and continue calling LJ's number
  • Chiefs went for it on fourth and short and converted
  • LJ is looking very, very solid so far.  He's taking advantage of some big holes
  • After a first down, Cassel fired up the crowd by pumping his fist in the air
  • The Chiefs had a 17 play drive that resulted in a field goal
  • Wade currently has 29 of Cassel's 30 passing yards
  • LJ is averaging over four yards per carry
  • The Chiefs did not recover an attempted onside kick
