SNF: Chiefs vs Texans Game Thread

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Sunday Night Football, Week 5. Tonight the Kansas City Chiefs try to remain the only unbeaten team in the NFL when they travel to Texas to face the Houston Texans in NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

The Chiefs come into the game with a perfect 4-0 record and sit atop the AFC West standings. The Chiefs are led by game manager deluxe quarterback Alex Smith, who is surprisingly leading the NFL in passer rating at the quarter mark of the season. The Chiefs also feature an excellent bend but don't break defense, a dynamic rookie running back in Kareem Hunt who has taken the league by storm, and electrifying receiver Tyreek Hill.

The Texans come into the game with a 2-2 record, good for first in the AFC South. The Texans are led by promising rookie Deshaun Watson, who has helped to transform a moribund Texans offense into a juggernaut over the last couple of weeks. The Texans also feature one of the top ground attacks in the NFL, one of the best receivers in the NFL in DeAndre Hopkins, and one of the most talented defenses in the NFL.

Two first place teams collide in a game that might foreshadow a playoff meeting down the road.

Enjoy the game everybody. As always we ask that you neither ask for nor post illegal streaming links.
