The Buffalo Bills are now 0-7 after dropping their second consecutive game in overtime, this time a 13-10 decision to the host Kansas City Chiefs.

Both team's kickers, Rian Lindell and Ryan Succop, missed field goal attempts in overtime. Lindell hit a 53-yard game-winner, but Chiefs head coach Todd Haley called a timeout in time, and Lindell missed the second try. Succop blew a potential game-winner wide left after a Chan Gailey timeout. In the end, the Chiefs - aided by an intentional grounding penalty on Ryan Fitzpatrick - maneuvered the ball into field goal range late in overtime, and Succop buried a 35-yarder with one second to spare.

Buffalo trailed 7-0 at halftime, and 10-3 late in the fourth quarter, before Fitzpatrick found Stevie Johnson on a four-yard touchdown pass to tie the score and send the game to the extra session.

Fitzpatrick completed 24 of 48 passes for 223 yards and a touchdown, and also added 43 yards rushing, but threw a terrible interception late in regulation that erased an opportunity for Lindell and the Bills to end the game prior to playing another overtime.

The Chiefs were able to get into position late thanks to a poor punt from Brian Moorman and timely contributions from rookie tight end Tony Moeaki (29 receiving yards on the game-winning drive) and Jamaal Charles (24 total yards on the game-winning drive, 238 total yards in the game). Buffalo's struggles defending the run continued, as the Chiefs ran for a whopping 274 yards in their narrow defeat.

This one stings, folks. It stings much more than last week's 37-34 overtime loss to Baltimore, as the Chiefs repeatedly gave Buffalo opportunities to win this game. The winless Bills will take on the Chicago Bears next Sunday at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.
