Kansas City 27, New Orleans 24: Kansas City came back all the way back from a 24-6 deficit with less than six minutes left in the third to force overtime. They would eventually win what was the third overtime games this afternoon. Jamaal Charles had 233 yards, including 91-yards on one play.

De-fense [clap, clap] De-fense! These were the worst two teams in the league on defense, with respect to points allowed. Stuff like this is why. With under two minutes in the second half Pierre Thomas seemingly dove, bobbled, scampered back up to his feet and walked into the end zone without a defender in sight. Replay officials would overturn the call on the field, but still. Defense. Get ready for more "Boy, you really see the impact Sean Payton has on this team" analysis.


Look who decided to show up: Jamaal Charles finally had a game to remind you his name was once "Jamaal Charles, Peyton Hillis Who?" On top of the 233 yards rushing, he added another 55 in receiving. This one went for 91 yards in the third quarter to cut the lead to 24-13.
