Texans vs. Chiefs: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis

Benjamin Allbright@@AllbrightNFLContributor IOctober 20, 2013

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Houston Texans 17 - 16 on Sunday.  The Chiefs have now won seven straight games to open the season.

The Texans, who were already suffering from injuries, lost Arian Foster, Brian Cushing and J.J. Watt during the game.  The severity and duration of their injuries is not known at this time.

Houston was playing with a new starting quarterback in Case Keenum.  Keenum made his debut in strong fashion, keeping the Texans close throughout the game.  He also only turned the ball over on a fumble at the very end, but was a welcome change overall for a Texans team that has suffered through a spate of pick-sixes this season.

The Chiefs continue to pace the NFL and the AFC West, while the Texans, a two-win team, have significant work ahead of themselves if they hope to make the playoffs.

The Chiefs get the Cleveland Browns at home in Week 8.  Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, October 27.
