Defense, kicker lead Bills to win over Chiefs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Defense and a kicker helped the Buffalo Bills hold on - for once.

Rian Lindell kicked three field goals and the Bills intercepted Matt Cassel four times to beat the struggling Kansas City Chiefs 16-10 on Sunday.

Buffalo (5-8) overcame three turnovers and an ineffective passing game to finally close out a win in the fourth quarter. The Bills had lost seven times this season when they were within a touchdown headed into the final 15 minutes, pulling this one out with two interceptions in the final 2:11.

Kansas City (3-10) got a career-high 143 yards and a touchdown from Jamaal Charles, but couldn't overcome another shaky game from Cassel.
