BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens both ended their preseason touchdown droughts Friday night. Now, only Kansas City is searching for a victory. Backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor directed two fourth-quarter touchdown drives, the first ending with Jalen Parmele's go-ahead 10-yard touchdown run with 7:16 remaining, and the Ravens rallied
for a 31-13 victory over the winless Chiefs.

Taylor later added a 5-yard TD run of his own, a dive to the right pylon that withstood a video review. He finished 5 for 11 for 88 yards.

Kansas City's Tyler Palko completed eight of 13 passes for 95 yards, but produced 10 points in his three drives -- a tying 4-yard touchdown pass to Terrance Copper late in the second quarter and a 12-play march culminating in a tiebreaking 30-yard field goal by Ryan Succop with 6:58 left in the third quarter.
