The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Houston Texans Sunday night to remain the NFL’s only unbeaten team. Alex Smith threw three touchdowns and Kareem Hunt had another 100 yard game. The Texans tried hard to limit Tyreek Hill from having a big play, but they could only hold him in check so long. Hill returned a fourth quarter punt for a TD dashing any hopes of a Texans comeback. The Chiefs take on the Steelers in week 6 and will try to remain the unbeaten team in the NFL.

In a game where the Texans and Deshaun Watson did a lot of things right, the Chiefs still came out on top. Seemingly every time the Texans made a big play, the Chiefs answered right back with a big play or long drive of their own. Tyreek Hill made several big plays including an 82-yard punt return. Also, Alex Smith and the offense looked like a finely tuned machine. The defense also stepped up when Chris Jones forced his third fumble on the season at a pivotal moment. Lastly, Cam Erving got the start in place of the injured Laurent Duvernay-Tardif at right guard.

The Chiefs won Sunday night in Houston, but the win didn’t come without cost. Probably most significantly, Chris Conley is likely done for the season after rupturing his achilles. If the tests confirm, Conley will be the second star lost to this injury, after Eric Berry. Also, star TE Travis Kelce is in the concussion protocol after taking a rough hit the the head. Although Head Coach Andy Reid said the outlook for Kelce looked promising, that’s still not something you want happening to an offensive weapon like Kelce. Since the Chiefs came into week 5 missing LB Dee Ford and offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Mitch Morse, the Chiefs list of injuries is slowly growing.

Alex Smith has been a key piece to the Chiefs being 5-0 on the season. With playmakers like Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Kareem Hunt in play, Alex Smith is still giving everyone a reason to pay attention. Smith has vastly improved his game from last season. This past season he was criticized for not throwing the long ball and poor pocket presence. This season he has done a much better job at keeping his eyes up in the pocket and making plays with his feet when the pocket collapses. Also, Smith has been much more willing to try to make plays down the field and trust his playmakers. Smith will look to continue his MVP-like play against the Steelers to help the Chiefs remain unbeaten.
