Chiefs, Ryan Succop need to kick trend of missed playoff field goals

The Chiefs returning to the playoffs against the Colts is just an unnecessary reminder of a larger, infuriating, defeating trend that can’t be ignored after Ryan Succop missed what would’ve been the game-winning field goal at the end of regulation Sunday in San Diego. Since the Super Bowl win after the 1969 season, the Chiefs are 3-12 in the playoffs with their kickers making just 12 of 25 field-goal tries.
