It didn’t seem to matter that Priest Holmes was on the sidelines with an injured knee, but Derrick Blaylock’s impressive substitution wasn’t enough as the Chiefs fell to the Saints 27-20 on New Orleans. Blaylock had the fifth-best performance in Chiefs’ history with 186 yards rushing and a touchdown. Kansas City led 10-0 after the first quarter thanks to a 21-yard touchdown pass from Trent Green to Eddie Kennison and a 24-yard field goal from Lawrence Tynes. But in the second quarter, the Saints scored on consecutive possessions, making good on droves of 68 and 89 yards. Tynes connected on a 44-yard field cut the Saints lead to 14-13 before the half. Kansas City tied the game at 20-20 when they marched 78 yards in nine plays and Blaylock scored on a three-yard touchdown and Tynes hit the extra point. On the next possession, Saints quarterback Aaron Brooks his former Chief Joe Horn on a 42-yard touchdown pass to take the lead for good. Horn caught five passes for 167 yards. With the loss, the Chiefs drop to 3-6 on the season.
