PREGAME

HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Texans are feeling good after scoring a franchise-record 57 points in a win over the Tennessee Titans last week.

Now they'll see if they can keep things up offensively when they face the NFL's only undefeated team in the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night. The Texans (2-2) understand they can't rest on what they did last week.

"There were a ton of good things in the game," coach Bill O'Brien said. "I think our players deserve all the credit. They played very well in the game, but there's a lot to clean up before we get to ... Sunday night."

Much of Kansas City's early success can be attributed to the stellar play of veteran quarterback Alex Smith. He's tied for third in the NFL with eight touchdown passes and is one of three regular starters yet to throw a pick, along with the Patriots' Tom Brady and the Saints' Drew Brees. Good company.

He is also completing more than 76 percent of his throws, resulting in a league-best 124.2 passer rating.

"He's everything you want as a coach," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "This is what we have confidence in, players, coaches, we all have confidence that he does this."
