The Kansas City Chiefs will stroll into their season opener against an AFC South team for the third straight season. Two years ago they beat the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road in the season opener. Last season they put up a stinker against in a loss to the Tennessee Titans.
This year? History says Andy Reid will win. Because Andy Reid always beats the Texans. Reid is a perfect 4-0 against the Texans in three games as the Eagles coach and then the Case Keenum Bowl in his first season as Chiefs coach.
2002: 35-17 (Eagles)
2006: 24-10 (Eagles)
2010: 34-24 (Eagles)
2013: 17-16 (Chiefs)
The Texans are not the only team against which Reid sports an unbeaten record. He has never lost to the Browns (5-0) or Jets (4-0) either. He is also 3-0 all-time against the Chiefs -- guessing he won't have a shot to screw that one up, huh? -- and he is 1-0 against Philly, which came in his third game as the Chiefs head coach.
The Chiefs as a team are 3-3 all-time vs. the Texans. They are 2-2 in Houston. However, the Chiefs are 0-1 against the Texans in season openers after losing 20-3 in 2007.
