KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Cairo Santos, the diminutive soccer player from Brazil who learned the rules to American football by playing the "Madden" video game, could have some salty ratings as a kicker when the next version of the game comes out.
Santos set a Chiefs record for field goals in a game by going 7 for 7 in last week's 36-21 loss in Cincinnati. Not only did he break Ryan Succop's franchise mark, he came within one of matching the NFL record set by the late Rob Bironas of the Tennessee Titans.
All of which would have been splendid had the Chiefs actually won.
