MENDOZA, Argentina -- Two late penalties by Morne Steyn gave South Africa their second consecutive victory in the Rugby Championship as they beat Argentina 22-17 on Saturday in a game that was a lot closer than the record win over the Pumas last weekend. Kelley OHara Jersey
. The Springboks hammered Argentina 73-13 in Johannesburg for the largest win ever in the competition, but the Pumas showed a much more combative spirit this time in front of an enthusiastic crowd at Malvinas Argentinas stadium. "It was an all different team today," Steyn said. "Playing in their country and with all their fans behind them, they came up tough to fight." Bjorn Basson scored the sole try for the Springboks in the first half and Steyn had an unblemished evening as he landed all six attempts to add 17 points, including two penalties in the last eight minutes to decide the game. Juan Manuel Leguizamon and Marcelo Bosch touched down for the Pumas in both ends of the first half, and Felipe Contepomi added a penalty and the two conversions. The Springboks have now won 16 of their 17 games against the Pumas, who managed a 16-16 draw in the corresponding fixture last season. It was the closest Argentina came to winning a match in the elite southern hemisphere tournament. Argentina started strongly with a ferocious pressure that generated an attack that ended with Leguizamon wheeling over for a second-minute try. After Steyn and Contepomi exchanged penalties, South Africa got some momentum going and hammered the line.A counter-attack found Basson free on the left wing for the game-tying try making it 10-10 after 13 minutes. The Springboks kept it up and had a couple of chances to score, but were denied both times by Marshall Kilgore. And when Pumas recovered the ball, they made the most of it as a long, patient drive ended with Bosch crashing over the line for the second try in the 37th. Steyn landed another penalty when the halftime siren had already sounded and put the Springboks one point down at 17-16 in the 45th with his fourth strike. The visitors were unable to dominate the set pieces and the mauling as they had done seven days earlier, but made the most of the chances Argentina gave them. In the 73rd minute Steyn converted yet another penalty to put the Springboks ahead for the first time in the evening, this time for good. He had one more chance when after time had expired, and didnt miss that time either. "One thing that was great is that we didnt panic in the final minutes, last year we did," South Africa coach Heyneke Meyer said. "There was an improvement, although we didnt play well. Argentina was trying to make their country proud, it is a difficult side to beat on the road." It was the first away victory for South Africa in the competition since 2009, when they beat New Zealand in Hamilton en route to their third and last Southern Hemisphere title. Steyn has now made 18 of his 19 attempts in the tournament for 45 points in two games. The Springboks now face the toughest segment of the competition as they travel to Australasia for a two-game series, the first against the Wallabies in Brisbane on Sept. 7th and the latter against the All Blacks, seven days later in Auckland. ------ South Africa 22 (Basson try; Steyn conversion, 5 penalties) defeated Argentina 17 (Leguizamon, Bosch tries; Contepomi 2 conversions, penalty). HT 13-17. Carli Lloyd Jersey

In taking questions for the first time since Ted Wells released his report into the bullying scandal that rocked the league, Philbin made it clear things would be cleaned up.ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith was exhausted after he returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown. "I was definitely happy I made it," Smith said. "I wanted to celebrate, but I was too tired." Thats fine, because the Chiefs are suddenly breathing easier after their defence kept Kansas Citys perfect start intact. Smiths interception and linebacker Tamba Halis 11-yard fumble return for a touchdown aided the Chiefs in overcoming a pedestrian offence and their own leaky defence in securing a 23-13 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Kansas City (9-0) remained the NFLs only undefeated team and matched the best start in franchise history set in 2003. The Chiefs now enter their bye week before a key AFC West showdown against the Denver Broncos (7-1) on Nov. 17. If the only thing perfect about the Chiefs is their record so far, coach Andy Reid refuses to make any apologies. "Were not going to make excuses for it," said Reid, who in his first year has the Chiefs continuing their worst-to-first run after a 2-14 finish last season. "Were pretty happy that we got the touchdowns. Well take them any way we can get them." The Chiefs defence led the way, outscoring the Alex Smith-led offence, which was limited to three field goals. And the defence had to compensate for its own problems in having difficulty containing a Buffalo offence headed by Jeff Tuel, an undrafted rookie making his first career start. Despite allowing a season-worst 470 yards of offence and 25 first downs, the Chiefs were opportunistic in holding their ninth consecutive opponent to 17 points or less to match an NFL record set by the 1977 Atlanta Falcons. Smiths interception turned the momentum, tying the score at 10 after Tuel had marched the Bills 79 yards on the opening drive of the third quarter. Hali then put the Chiefs ahead for good by scooping up T.J. Grahams fumble -- forced by cornerback Marcus Cooper -- and running it in to put Kansas City ahead 20-13 with 12:47 left. "We dont really care what people think," Hali said of the Chiefs victories lacking style points. "Sometimes the stats dont really tell you the outcome." Tell that to the Bills (3-6), who were left stunned and frustrated in attempting to figure out how they let this one slip away. Alyssa Naeher Jersey
. "Horrible," offensive co-ordinator Nathaniel Hackett said. "It was shocking even to our guys. We did everything we wanted. We just couldnt finish it." The difference was turnovers, as the Chiefs turned Buffalos three giveaways -- two interceptions thrown by Tuel and Grahams fumble -- into 17 points. The loss marred what began as a solid outing by Tuel, who became the third quarterback to start for Buffalo this season. He played in place of interim starter Thad Lewis, who was sidelined by bruised ribs, and with rookie starter EJ Manuel missing his fourth game with a sprained right knee. Tuels 139 yards passing in the first half were the most by a Bills quarterback in the first two quarters this season. And Tuel was in a position to improve his numbers after marching Buffalo to the Kansas City 1 on the opening drive of the second half before his day went awry. Facing third-and-goal, Tuel took a shotgun snap, and looked immediately to his right, where Graham was running a slant pattern. Tuel, however, failed to account for Smith, who easily picked off the pass at the goal line and then took off up the left sideline. "Its very frustrating," Tuel said. "Thats 100 per cent my fault." Tuel finished 18 of 39 for 229 yards passing, and a 59-yard touchdown to Marquise Goodwin. For Kansas City, Smith completed 19 of 29 passes for just 124 yards. Running back Jamaal Charles was held under 100 yards from scrimmage for the first time this season. Kansas City also snapped a six-game losing streak at Orchard Park that included two playoff losses, winning there for the first time since Sept. 28, 1986. NOTES: Bills WR Robert Woods did not return after having difficulty putting any weight on his lower leg late in the third quarter. Coach Doug Marrone said tests were negative. ... Chiefs S Kendrick Lewis also had an interception, picking off Tuels pass that sailed over the head of TE Scott Chandler in the second quarter. ... The Bills ran all over the Chiefs defence in finishing with a season-best 241 yards rushing. Buffalo was led by C.J. Spiller, who had 116 yards rushing.
