ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — The man with the most invested in the success or failure of the Kansas City Chiefs stood beside a practice field at Missouri Western State University and lamented 4 miserable inches.

That’s how far offside former pass rusher Dee Ford was in the AFC title game, when Charvarius Ward intercepted Tom Brady with 54 seconds left and Kansas City clinging to the lead.

The yellow flag on the Arrowhead Stadium turf gave New England another shot, and this time Brady made the most of it. He marched the Patriots the rest of the way to a go-ahead score. When the Chiefs forced overtime with a field goal, Brady answered with a winning touchdown.
