The New Orleans Saints lead the Kansas City Chiefs at the end of the third quarter, as they have the previous two quarters on Sunday. After the Saints took a commanding 24-3 lead in the third, Kansas City cut into the deficit with its first touchdown of the game -- a 91-yard run by Jamaal Charles.
That left the score at 24-13 at the end of the third quarter. The Saints have had the advantage for the entire game, but the Chiefs' offense is picking up and could make a rally in the final period. In fact, the Chiefs opened the fourth quarter with a 34-yard field goal by Ryan Succop to trim the Saints' lead.
New Orleans is now up 24-16. That's 13 unanswered points by the Chiefs.
Some unfortunate news for the Chiefs was Dexter McCluster going out with an elbow injury.
