[Kansas City.com] The scenery up north is swell, but don’t expect Lawrence Tynes to be visiting Buffalo again anytime soon.
When Tynes warmed up Sunday, a stiff wind blew one direction. Tynes said it changed 50 times. The gusts reached 26 mph at game time, and the result for the Chiefs’ near-automatic kicker was two missed field goals and the end of a streak that went back to September.
“I’ll just take it for what it is and go back and try to get better,” Tynes said, “and be thankful I don’t have to kick up here every week.”
Tynes kicked a 35-yard field goal in the first quarter Sunday, extending his streak to 14 made kicks. A quarter later, Tynes lined up for a 44-yarder with the Chiefs leading 3-0. His kick sailed wide right, and Tynes missed another field goal early in the fourth when his 43-yard attempt hooked left.
“He’s human,” Vermeil said. “He’s going to miss some.”
