    Weather forecast: 70 degrees, partly cloudy

    Line: Chiefs -6.5, Over/Under: 39.5

    Notable Quotables:
    Chiefs:

    "10 sacks! Wow! Everybody's trying to eat around here, everybody's hungry; everybody's thirsty on this defense. And we are not done yet." -- Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson on the team's defensive performance against Oakland last Sunday.

    Texans:
    "Our fans don't want to hear about how we're going to fix it. They don't want to hear me stand up here and tell them anything. They don't want to hear any of the words that I have to say. They just want to see results. I fully understand that, so all I can do is go to work. All we can do as a team is go to work. Words don't win games, work does. Hopefully, I'll have answers to all your questions with my play on the field, and if there are any further questions, I will see you Sunday after the game. Thanks." - DE J.J. Watt to the media after practice on Wednesday.

    ESPN Game Preview:

    The most opportunistic defense in the NFL and strong special teams have allowed the Kansas City Chiefs to overcome a mediocre offense for the second-best start in team history.

    The Houston Texans haven't been quite as fortunate, with a glaring turnover problem weighing down its league-best defense and otherwise quality offense.

    Kansas City (6-0) will look to capitalize on those issues Sunday when it hosts Houston, which will have third-stringer Case Keenum at quarterback over injured starter Matt Schaub as it looks to avoid its first five-game losing streak in nearly eight years.

    Defense and special teams have accounted for 46.1 percent of the Chiefs' points, including five touchdowns. The 2003 Chiefs had seven TDs from the defense and special teams in their first six wins during a 9-0 start, the only one in team history better than this year's.

    Husain Abdullah's 44-yard interception return for a score with 1:35 left helped seal a 24-7 home victory over Oakland on Sunday.

    "It's something we talked about from Day 1, the scoring. There's equal opportunity in all three phases," coach Andy Reid said. "We wanted everybody to have their chance to score a touchdown."

    Houston (2-4) isn't nearly as upbeat despite allowing 252.8 yards per game, easily the best mark in the NFL. The Texans' offense is averaging 395.7 yards, seventh most in the league, but they're scoring 17.7 points per game -- the seventh-lowest mark.

    A minus-12 turnover differential has been a big reason for that, as only the winless New York Giants at minus-16 are worse.

    The Texans have committed 12 turnovers during their four-game slide. They haven't lost five in a row since a six-game skid Nov. 6-Dec. 11, 2005.

    "Turnovers get you beat in this league and they're getting us beat on a consistent basis," said coach Gary Kubiak, who won division titles the last two years but may be on the hot seat with a 4-8 record since an 11-1 start last season.

    After throwing nine interceptions in the previous five games, Schaub was finally turnover-free in a 38-13 home loss to St. Louis on Sunday. However, he suffered injuries to his right ankle and foot on a third-quarter sack and won't play this week.

    Kubiak chose to start Keenum in what will be his NFL debut over backup T.J. Yates, who was 12 of 17 for 98 yards while getting picked off twice and sacked twice in relief of Schaub last week. Keenum, a record-setting quarterback at the University of Houston, spent last season on the practice squad and joined the Texans as an undrafted free agent.

    He'll be facing a Kansas City team that leads the league with 31 sacks.

    This matchup also features the two leading rushers in the AFC, with Houston's Arian Foster running for 341 yards in the past three games to push his season total to a conference-best 531.

    Jamaal Charles, second in the league with 129.2 scrimmage yards per game behind Philadelphia's LeSean McCoy (145.2), has accounted for seven of Kansas City's 12 offensive TDs. He was leaned on heavily again versus the Raiders, recording 128 of the team's 216 total yards.

    The Chiefs' 326.3 yards-per-game average ranks 25th in the NFL, and Alex Smith is 32nd with 6.16 yards per passing attempt.

    "If we can get our offense to play as well as our defense is playing right now, it's going to be great," receiver Dexter McCluster said.

    Former Pro Bowler Dwayne Bowe has only 20 receptions for 229 yards and two TDs. However, he caught six passes for 108 yards and two scores in the teams' last meeting, a 35-31 Texans home win Oct. 17, 2010.

    Andre Johnson caught an 11-yard touchdown pass from Schaub with 28 seconds remaining to cap a 10-point fourth-quarter comeback, which gave Houston a 3-2 series advantage. Johnson has averaged 105.6 receiving yards with four TDs in five career games against Kansas City.

    Arrowhead Stadium, which set a Guinness World Record for loudest outdoor sports stadium in Sunday's game with the crowd reaching 137.5 decibels, could create a further hindrance for Keenum.

    The Raiders were whistled for three false starts and three delay-of-game penalties, and the Texans have been penalized for more yardage than any other team with 459.

    Houston announced Wednesday it will be without starting safety Danieal Manning for the rest of the year due to a right knee injury suffered Sunday. Third-year player Shiloh Keo will take his place.

    Chiefs-Texans scouting report
    October 19

    When the Chiefs run
    EDGE >> CHIEFS
    Running back Jamaal Charles hasnít broken a big run yet, but he has run hard and managed to get the tough yards, even when defenses know the Chiefs are running. The Texans struggled against the run in a 38-13 loss to the Rams last week, and currently rank 25th in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game at 121.5. It would make sense if the Chiefs tried to establish the run away from Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, the NFLís reigning defensive player of the year.

    When the Chiefs pass
    EDGE >> TEXANS
    The Chiefs could have a difficult time moving the ball through the air against the Texans, who are allowing a league-low 131.3 passing yards per game. Problem is, they arenít forcing turnovers ó they only have three all year, which ranks near the bottom of the league, and are minus-12 in turnover ratio. Against a Chiefs offense that has been averse to turnovers, the Texans struggles could continue, though Watt and fellow defensive end Antonio Smith have a good chance of being disruptive against a somewhat banged-up Chiefs offensive line.

    When the Texans run
    EDGE >> TEXANS
    The Chiefs are pretty solid against the run, but the running game is the Texansí bread-and-butter. Houston runs for nearly 137 yards per game, the sixth-best mark in the league, and thereís little doubt the Texans will lean heavily on the running game to keep this game under control. Center Chris Myers is playing well, which gives the Texans a chance to run up the middle against burgeoning star nose guard Dontari Poe. Then thereís running back Arian Foster, one of the leagueís top backs.

    When the Texans pass
    EDGE >> CHIEFS
    Letís see: a rookie taking on the No. 1 pass rush in the NFL at Arrowhead Stadium? Huge advantage goes to the Chiefs. Case Keenum, a third-stringer entering this week, leapfrogged a banged-up and struggling Matt Schaub and beleaguered backup T.J. Yates for the starting job, but he faces a huge test against a defense that leads the NFL in sacks with 30 and is tied for second in interceptions for 10. Good luck, there.

    Special teams
    EDGE >> CHIEFS
    This one is close. Texans punter Shane Lechler is one of the best in the league, but so is Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt. The difference here lies with the kickers, where the Chiefsí Ryan Succop has drilled nearly twice as many touchbacks and converted a higher percentage of his field goals (84.6) than Bullock has (64.3). The Chiefs also have a punt-return touchdown to their credit, while the Texans do not.

    Coaching
    EDGE >> CHIEFS
    While Andy Reid can do no wrong in Kansas City, Houston coach Gary Kubiakís decision to throw quarterback Case Keenum into the fire could also be construed as a move to buy himself more time on the job. Throw that into the mix, as well as defensive coordinator Bob Suttonís wizardry this season, and the Chiefs would appear to have the advantage here.

    X-factor
    EDGE >> CHIEFS
    Chalk this one up to the power of Arrowhead Stadium. The venue that once powered the great Chiefs teams of the 1990s has its mojo back, as the fans proved last week when they broke the Guinness record for loudest crowd at an outdoor sporting event. The fans made it difficult for the Raiders to make their offensive calls, and the Texans should have similar problems.

    Bottom line: Chiefs 23-10

    Watt is ticked off because of his teamís 2-4 start, and itís easy to see him having a big day against an offensive line that has battled injuries, overall, and inexperience at the right tackle position. But at the end of the day, itís hard to imagine a young quarterback winning his debut at a rejuvenated Arrowhead Stadium.

    Now you know why I saved a bunch of vacation time and took 11 of 13 Sundays off starting at the beginning of October. It was because I suspected that the Chiefs were going to have much improved season over last year.
