KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs are off to a perfect start under new coach Andy Reid.
An impressive 26-16 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night left the Chiefs 3-0 for just the second time in a decade. The Chiefs have won their first three games only eight times ever, and six of the previous seven seasons ended in the playoffs.
The Chiefs have forced nine turnovers and have yet to commit one after tying for the league lead with a minus-24 turnover differential last season. They forced the Eagles into five of them on Thursday night, including a pick-six by safety Eric Berry.
The Chiefs defense, which allowed 40 points in their season opener a year ago, has allowed 34 points through its first three games.
