Twitter roasts NBC for wall-to-wall coverage of JJ Watt's injury

It's a good thing the Chiefs offense was so hot early on, as Houston began to figure it out offensively in the second half.

Kansas City had little trouble against the short-handed Houston defense and scored on all five of its first-half possessions to take a 23-7 lead into intermission. Houston rookie D'Onta Foreman fumbled two plays later to give Kansas City the ball right back and the Chiefs tacked on a field goal.

The Chiefs have cemented themselves as the best team in football.

Over the first five seasons of his career, Mercilus tallied 37.5 sacks, leading the team in sacks a year ago with 7.5.

Hopkins was on the other end of two more scores to finish with four catches for 52 yards. Not that that's an excuse.

1. Alex Smith Before the season, the Chiefs (along with the Texans and Bears) were one of three teams to move up to draft their quarterback of the future. Smith's 11 touchdowns with no interceptions puts him in lofty company. Last year, he had back surgery, came back, hurt his back again and missed most of the year. "When we're down in (the) pass game, I know I got their back". Against the Texans, Smith showed he is able to guide these Chiefs to a win even without outrageous production from Hunt.

Houston also played most of the game without linebacker Whitney Mercilus after he suffered a chest injury in the first quarter, which coach Bill O'Brien said he is concerned about. Watt in the first quarter. Watt for the year in the same game is absolutely catastrophic for the Houston defense. But Smith constantly made them pay with surgical 3rd down conversions, often on the run.

Kelce was scheduled to go through the concussion protocol on Monday.

This has been a problem for Houston for a long time, and while they mostly kept Kansas City in-check, Tyreek Hill's 82-yard fourth quarter punt return touchdown effectively ended Houston's comeback and sealed the victory for the Chiefs. Join the KC Kingdom team! The Chiefs will be hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2) for a 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff at Arrowhead Stadium on October 15. While Conley does not put up huge numbers, he is on the field for nearly every one of the Chiefs offensive snaps.
