Rookie kicker Cairo Santos had a difficult NFL debut, making one of two field goal attempts and bouncing both kicks off an upright. But Santos didn’t hide from the heat afterward. He patiently answered questions and resolved to do better the next time.
Running back Jamaal Charles got the ball only 11 times, but he said a bigger problem was the missed field goal. It happened in the second quarter with the Chiefs ahead 3-0. Charles said the failed kick killed whatever momentum the Chiefs had.
