TEXANS

1. QB Matt Schaub vs. Chiefs: 2-0, 74.5% comp., 3 TDs, 1 INT, 115 QB rating

The Chiefs lost that game, 35-31. Here is the box score. If you recall, they should have won that game on the road but the Texans put up 21 fourth quarter points to spoil the Chiefs party. That season, 2010, was the last time KC went to the playoffs.

Meanwhile, backup TJ Yates is 1-1 on the road in his career.

2. RB Arian Foster: AFC-best 531 rushing yards this season

Foster is averaging 113 yards rushing over his last three games. BUT ... just one rushing and one receiving touchdown this season. He had 15 rushing touchdowns last season.

Foster has faced the Chiefs once (that 2010 game) and had two touchdowns. He had 24 touches total for 97 yards.

3. WR Andre Johnson vs. Chiefs: 105.6 yards per game

Did not know this: Johnson's 81.6 receiving yards per game is the best in NFL history (minimum 100 games). He has four TDs in five games vs. the Chiefs and has gone over 100 yards three times vs. KC.

4. Texans defense: Allows NFL-low 252.8 yards per game

And they're 2-4. Shows you how much those pick-sixes have affected this team.

5. DT JJ Watt: NFL-best 24 sacks since 2012

Tied for third on that list? One Justin Houston.

CHIEFS

1. Chiefs keep setting NFL and franchise records

The Chiefs are the first team in NFL history to start 6-0 after losing 14 or more games the previous season.

Andy Reid is the first Chiefs head coach to win six straight in his first season.

2. QB Alex Smith: Since 2011, he is 25-5-1

As Al Davis might say: Just win, baby.

3. RB Jamaal Charles: 100-plus scrimmage yards in every game this year

His average of 129 yards from scrimmage this season are second best in the NFL.

4. Two Chiefs DB INT streaks

Quintin Demps has had an INT in the last three games. Marcus Cooper has had an INT in two straight games.
