Chiefs will keep feeding Kareem Hunt, coach Andy Reid says

KC Chiefs rookie running back Kareem Hunt, who became the first NFL player to record a touchdown of 50 yards or more in each of his first three games, has rushed 47 times for 401 yards — an absurd 8.5-yard average — and four touchdowns. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he’s not considering reducing Hunt’s carries.

Pick-happy defense, Kareem Hunt help Chiefs put away Chargers

The streak continues. Thanks to a pick-happy defense –– one that also found a way to consistently get off the field on third down, despite a largely-dormant pass rush –– and one big run by burgeoning rookie star Kareem Hunt, the KC Chiefs managed to remain undefeated and topple the Los Angeles Chargers for the seventh straight time on Sunday in a 24-10 victory at the StubHub Center.

Kansas City Star staff photographer David Eulitt didn't know how the Kansas City Chiefs would react during Sunday's National Anthem before the Los Angeles Chargers. What he saw through the lens surprised him: several players took one knee but linebacker Justin Houston went on both knees to pray.
