Watch Houston Texans vs Kansas City Chiefs Live Streaming NFL Football Week 7 Online 2013. Watch Houston Texans vs Kansas City Chiefs The reeling Houston Texans will look to get back on track this afternoon when they square off against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. Today's showdown between the Texans and Chiefs is scheduled to kickoff at 4:25pm ET on CBS.
The Chiefs have already won four more games than they did a year ago thanks to one of the best defenses in the NFL. Could things get ugly when Matt Schaub and the Texans come to town?
The Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans were on opposite ends of the spectrum last year. The Chiefs went 2-14 and picked first overall in April's NFL Draft, while the Texans won the AFC South and a playoff game. It seemed plausible that Kansas City would be able to turn it around, but it has been surprising to see Houston turn around the other way.
While the Chiefs have started 6-0 and sport the No. 1 scoring defense in the NFL, the Texans only barely won their first two games of the year and have dropped four straight since. Three of those four losses have come by way of blowout, and the other was a fourth-quarter implosion against the Seahawks at home.
When the Texans travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs on Sunday, is there anything stopping KC from staying undefeated?
Meet the Chiefs
We already knew that Kansas City had talent on defense. The Chiefs sent four of their defensive players to the Pro Bowl last year despite winning only two games. They're just as talented on defense this year -- if not more so -- but now the offense is helping out, too.
Justin Houston has 9.5 sacks, Tamba Hali has 7.5 sacks and Dontari Poe has 4.5 sacks from an interior pass rush. The addition of quarterback Alex Smith on offense has helped them be more efficient, but they still don't have a great passing offense. The Chiefs are just 26th in passing yards, but have thrown only three interceptions and fumbled just once.
The Chiefs have been really, really good, but are they a great team one can expect to see in the Super Bowl?
Meet the Texans
Is there a chance left that a Super Bowl run in the AFC playoffs could still include the Texans? It doesn't seem like it right now.
Quarterback Matt Schaub has thrown nine interceptions in six games, including some costly ones at the ends of some big contests. He threw a game-tying pick-six to Seattle's Richard Sherman with only minutes remaining in that game. When Schaub went down with an injury last Sunday, some of the home fans even let out cheers of satisfaction to see backup T.J. Yates.
But Yates was worse, throwing an interception on each of his first two drives.
The Texans still have J.J. Watt, Brian Cushing, and the league's No. 1 pass defense -- even if teams rarely pass on Houston, the Texans do hold opponents to short gains -- but is that going to be enough to challenge Kansas City and put their losing streak on hold?
