Kansas City Chiefs receiver Steve Breaston is more than pleased with his team's 27-24 win over the New Orleans Saints, stating on Monday that such wins are the kind that a team can build upon moving forward.
"Games like that can build momentum throughout the season," said Breaston. "Going down there to New Orleans and playing a team like the Saints and to be able to win like we did, it builds the team and brings us together just for the simple fact that we went out there and in all facets of the game, special teams, offensively and defensively, everything played a part of us winning that game. We just have to build on that and carry it over to next week, but that was a good win."
The Chiefs overcame a 24-13 deficit heading into the fourth quarter, scoring 11 points to send the game into overtime and then winning on a Ryan Succup field goal -- his sixth of the day. Led by 233 yards rushing by Jamaal Charles, the Chiefs used a monster second half in the team's first win over the season.
After the first two weeks, there was growing concern over the thought the Chiefs were not progressing under coach Romeo Crennel. Breaston, however, says that the team is just taking one game at a time after the win.
"Just like a year ago, it was only the third game of the season and everyone was saying all this, but it's still early in the season," said Breaston. "We're playing for first place now but you just have to take it as one game at a time. Just like last week, we lost the first two games and we were able to come back with a win. It's still early in the season, so your focus is going out there and getting a win and preparing all week for practice and going out and getting a win and get to .500."
The Chiefs take on the San Diego Chargers on Sept. 30, with kickoff set for 12 p.m. CT. Coverage is on CBS.
