Succop's leg lifts Chiefs to first victory; Redskins bench QB Campbell
LANDOVER, Md. -- In the locker room, the quarterback presented the game ball to the rookie head coach, who was still wet from the celebratory sideline ice bath. The coach then gave the ball to Mr. Irrelevant, a player no longer worthy of his nickname.The Kansas City Chiefs are winless no more. Neither is coach Todd Haley, who earned victory No. 1 with an assist from the last player taken in this year's draft. Ryan Succop kicked four field goals in Sunday's 14-6 win over the Washington Redskins, whose season is tanking toward oblivion because of losses to winless teams.
Chief Target: Bowe
The Chiefs go as far as the combo of Matt Cassel to Dwayne Bowe carries them. The first 10 times Cassel threw the ball to Bowe, he completed just three (30 percent). But on the final four passes to Bowe, he completed three, which helped the Chiefs score nine of their 16 points.
