Chiefs vs. Saints: Final Report Card, Player Grades for Kansas City

Facing an 18-point deficit in the third quarter, the Kansas City Chiefs ultimately climbed uphill and toppled the New Orleans Saints 27-24.

Kansas City's back was against the ropes, and Drew Brees landed a winding haymaker in the third quarter, altering the score to 24-6. But the Chiefs retaliated with a Sugar Ray Leonard-like flurry.

Following New Orleans' touchdown drive, Jamaal Charles cradled a pitch on the first play from scrimmage, turned the corner and sprinted like Usain Bolt just jacked his wallet. The play served as the catalyst for an improbable Chiefs comeback. 

True colors are shown when adversity is confronted. In the latter half of Sunday's contest, Kansas City unveiled what it had been missing the first two weeks: heart.
