In the second quarter, the Texans scored three consecutive touchdowns overpowering the Kansas City team the Texans won against the Chiefs.

As the season progresses, according to ESPN, the Kansas City Chiefs currently ranks in 1st place for the American Football Conference in the West. Following last year’s divisional playoff win, fans have high hopes for the team to go even further.

With the next game Thursday, Oct. 17 at 7:20 p.m. against the Denver Broncos being cast nationally, many fans anticipate another “W” for the stat book.
