Just when you think it's time to pack it up and call it a season, the Kansas City Chiefs come out and surprise everyone.

Sunday, that even included the New Orleans Saints, whom the Chiefs derailed in a 27-24 overtime win after trailing 24-6 midway through the third quarter.

For the first two quarters of the game, Kansas City was the same team that imploded against Atlanta and Buffalo—a team that is competitive at times but underachieves and can't overcome adversity.

Then for the final 30 minutes of Sunday's game, they were somebody else. Their porous defense stymied Drew Brees while the offense rolled over the Saints defense. Ryan Succop earned his money with four field goals and put the Chiefs on top for the first time all season.

Kansas City showed fans plenty to feel good about, plus a few things that continue to hold the Chiefs back.

Most importantly, Kansas City told everyone else in the NFL that their season isn't over yet, not by a long shot.
