But then defensive coordinator Bob Sutton made one small tweak with the Chiefs' blitz package, and suddenly the flood gates opened as the Chiefs got four sacks in the final period. Linebacker Tamba Hali led the charge with 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. "Just a little switch in how we blitzed," Hali said. "Credit to the coaches for doing that. And credit the coaches for switching some things up to help stop the run. That forced them to pass a little more." The tweak was obvious: Sutton at one point in the fourth quarter began sending Hali, Justin Houston and Derrick Johnson all from the same side of the ball. "That makes the offense try to pick one of use or two of us," Hali said. "But they ca...

WATCH: Alex Smith fakes a hand off to no one

Alex Smith is extra tricky today! With one minute left in the 2nd quarter, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith faked a hand off to NO ONE and then proceeded to scramble for 5-yards and a touchdown. I am not sure if Smith just missed the running back or planned to fake the hand off like that. Either way, the Chiefs scored and went on to take 14-10 lead into half-time. Check...

RB Jamaal Charles on the game winning broken play: 'Yeah, we made that play up'

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles went the wrong way on a read-option that left quarterback Alex Smith empty handed on a play action but Smith tucked the ball and dashed 5 yards for a touchdown just before halftime that gave the Chiefs the lead for good in their 17-16 win over Houston on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

It came right down to the wire, but the Chiefs narrowly defeated the Houston Texans 17-16. There were many times where the defense looked as if they finally were going to give up a big game to an opponent...

Chiefs are enjoying that unbeaten feeling

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) It's hard to find anybody in the Kansas City Chiefs' locker room willing to think back to last season. Those memories have been purged for weeks, if not months. Kendrick Lewis remembers, though. The starting free safety remembers vividly what it was like to win just two games and finish with the worst record in franchise history. He still recalls what...

Kansas City Chiefs look to build on Arrowhead momentum against Houston

Arrowhead is now the loudest open air stadium ever. (Photo credit: Ed Zurga/AP) The Kansas City Chiefs have a chance to get to 7-0 in front of a home crowd that last week set the world record for noise in an open-air stadium, with one of the best defenses in the league, against a team that has a rookie quarterback (Case Keenum) making his first NFL start of his career. The situation...

5 takeaways from Chiefs' 17-16 win over Texans

There's a good argument to be had over what's been more valuable to the Kansas City Chiefs' perfect start, running back Jamaal Charles or their stingy defense. The truth is it's taken both of them to pile up the wins. Charles joined some exclusive company with 123 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown on Sunday, while the Chiefs' defense forced a turnover in...

AFC West Report: You’re Still the One

After seven weeks of the regular season, the Kansas City Chiefs remain the only unbeaten team in the NFL. At 7-0, they are garnering enough respect but still most NFL experts believe it’s a mirage of some kind. But we don’t think so.

Chiefs Offense Shows Signs of Life

The Houston Texans, for all their other issues, have an exceptional defense. They've got a strong defensive line, solid linebackers, some good players in the secondary... Basically the total package.The Chiefs offense, on the other hand, has been uneven this season (I'm being generous with my wording). In Week 6, against the Raiders, our offense failed time and again to get...
