The Kansas City Chiefs (7-0) beat the Houston Texans (2-5) in a hard fought battle on Sunday in Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs outlasted the Texans by a single point, 17-16.

The Chiefs go to an amazing 7-0 this season after only winning 2 games a year ago. It is the second best start in franchise history. Kansas City started 9-0 in 2003.

The offense looked good in the first half and the defense ruled the second half. They overcame two turnovers after halftime, and a lack of a pass rush in the first 30 minutes. Again, it wasn’t a perfect performance but it was good enough.

Jamaal Charles became only the second back in NFL history to have over 100 yards in total offense and at least 1 touchdown in the first seven games of the season. O.J. Simpson was the other.

    It was great to see higher 3rd down conversion rate, and there were some big 3rd and long situations. Also I can live with 5 penalties a game

      I concur. No shooting ourselves in the foot. Jamaal Charles also admitted HE went the wrong way, not Smith. Very quick decision making made it look like it was a designed play though.

        Holy mother of god, I just realized, we have a KC team that actually doesn’t beat itself to lose games
