The Kansas City Chiefs are winless no longer following their victory over the now 0-4 Minnesota Vikings, 22-17. Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop deserves a game ball for his five field goals, which had the team leading entering the fourth quarter, 15-10. He made those kicks all over the field, including a game-long 54-yard connection.

But it was Matt Cassel's 52-yard touchdown throw to Dwayne Bowe in the fourth quarter that secured the victory. But that touchdown grab wasn't without controversy. Replay showed that Bowe did not have both feet in bounds when he had possession of the ball. However, the booth did not replay the touchdown and the Chiefs kicked the extra point for the 22-10 lead.

Vikings quarterback Donovan McNabb did find Michael Jenkins for a touchdown late in the quarter. However, on the final Vikings drive of the game, McNabb threw four straight incompletions, turning the ball over on a 4th-and-10 pass to Visanthe Shiancoe.

The Chiefs (1-3) head to Indianapolis next week. The Vikings look for their first win of the season when they host the Arizona Cardinals.
