KANSAS CITY, MO – It wasn’t the dominating display seen in previous weeks, but the Kansas City Chiefs won’t mind as they improved to 7-0 on the season with a 17-16 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday.
Jamal Charles and Alex Smith had touchdown runs for the Chiefs, whose defense sealed the win with a late sack and recovery of a Case Keenum fumble.
The loss dropped the defending AFC South division champions to 2-5 on the season. The Texans also were bit by the injury bug again, with both running back Arian Foster and linebacker Brian Cushing leaving the game.
Tom McCarthy and Rod Woodson called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
