A Ryan Succop field goal has given the Kansas City Chiefs their first points of the day against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but Kansas City continues to trail quarterback Josh Freeman and the Bucs at half, 7-3.

After Freeman connected with receiver Mike Williams on a 62-yard touchdown strike to give the Buccaneers a 7-0 lead, the Chiefs have struggled to put extended drives together. A 15-play drive engineered in the second quarter, however, resulted in the field goal and got the Chiefs on the scoreboard on the road before halftime.

For the half, Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn has completed 11-of-17 passes for 83 yards, including three completions to receiver Dexter McCluster, who has 21 yards receiving.

For the Buccaneers, Freeman's touchdown strike has been enough to ward off other mistakes, including incompletions on more than half of his attempts and an interception thrown already. Freeman has also racked up 10 yards rushing through the first two quarters.
