KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 2 (UPI) -- Ryan Succop booted five field goals, including a 54-yarder Sunday that helped elevate Kansas City to its first win of the year, a 22-17 verdict over Minnesota.

Succop's five field goals were a career high and his 54-yarder was his longest as a pro.

Matt Cassel gained 260 yards and hurled a TD pass to Dwayne Bowe for the Chiefs (1-3), who avoided an 0-4 start with the victory.

Bowe finished with five catches for 107 yards and Steve Breaston added four catches for 91 yards.

Minnesota, meanwhile, fell to 0-4 for the first time since 2002.

They lost despite Donovan McNabb's 18-of-30 passing performance for 202 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

Adrian Peterson amassed 80 yards on 23 carries for the Vikings.
