The Kansas City Chiefs outlasted the Cleveland Browns 23-17 to improve their current winning streak to eight. The Cleveland Browns fall to 3-5 at the midpoint of the season, and look to have a difficult task ahead of them getting back into their division race.
The Chiefs came out and ran up a 20-10 lead in the first half, but were stifled offensively in the second half, getting only three points. The Chiefs offensive line allowed quarterback Alex Smith to be sacked six times, and struggled with penalties in the second half as well.
Cleveland got off to a slow start under their third starting quarterback this season, Jason Campbell. Campbell shook the rust loose toward the end of the second quarter, finishing with 293 yards and two touchdowns.
The Chiefs defense was unable to generate outside pressure for much of the game, and only sacked Campbell one time.
Kansas City travels to Buffalo next week to take on the Bills.
