GLENDALE, Ariz., Oct. 8 (UPI) -- Lawrence Tynes' 19-yard field goal with 1:36 left to play helped the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Arizona Cardinals, 23-20, Sunday.

The field goal capped a 13-point fourth quarter for Kansas City. It was set up by a 78-yard reception by Larry Johnson -- and a face-mask penalty against Cardinals' tackle Antrel Rolle that sent Johnson out of the game with a neck injury.

Arizona quarterback Matt Leinart then engineered a 58-yard drive, but Neil Rackers missed a 51-yard field goal with two seconds left.

Quarterback Damon Huard was 26-of-38 for 288 yards and two touchdowns, and Johnson finished with six catches for 106 yards and a score for the Chiefs (2-2), who have won two straight.

Leinart, in his first NFL start, completed 22-of-35 passes for 253 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, and Edgerrin James rushed for 71 yards on 24 carries for the Cardinals (1-4), who have lost four straight.
