The Chiefs' sloppy play continued for a second straight week and this time they lost all of what was once a 14-point lead to fall behind the Texans 23-17 at halftime. The Chiefs committed nine penalties and missed a field goal, but the biggest error was a Patrick Mahomes fumble in the final seconds that led to Houston's go-ahead touchdown. Mahomes also threw an interception, his first of the season.

What once was a 14-point Chiefs lead is now down to 1. The Chiefs' inability to make a stop on defense is beyond a problem now. Houston has scored on three of four possessions. The Texans are 3-of-5 on third down and 1-of-1 on 4th. The Chiefs have failed to come up with any fixes for their many defensive problems,

The Chiefs have allowed the Texans to score on two of their three possessions. The Chiefs entered the game allowing either a touchdown or field goal on 44.2 percent of their possessions, which was fifth worst in the league. That puts a ton of pressure on Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs to delver on offense.

Tyreek Hill's ability to track the deep ball showed again on his 46-yard TD reception on the Chiefs' opening drive. At 5-10, he beat two Texans defenders to the ball to make the catch and put the Chiefs ahead 7-0.

Tyrann Mathieu had his first interception with the Chiefs in last week's game and is expecting to see plenty of action today against the Texans, his former team. "I kind of know how this head coach thinks,'' Mathieu said. "I expect him to throw at me early on and try to get in my head. So I'm looking forward to it.''

Texans vs. Chiefs: Expect an offensive explosion (1:05)

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chiefs will get Tyreek Hill back today against the Texans but will still play without three offensive starters: WR Sammy Watkins, LT Eric Fisher and LG Andrew Wylie, They're also missing two defensive starters in tackle Chris Jones and linebacker Anthony Hitchens, this after placing DT Xavier Williams on IR during the week.

Chiefs inactive players for today's game against the Texans: WR Sammy Watkins, G Andrew Wylie, DT Chris Jones, T Eric Fisher, LB Dorian O'Daniel, OL Greg Senat, LB Anthony Hitchens.

Tyreek Hill's return to the Chiefs today could help them in the return game as well as an offense. De'Anthony Thomas and Mecole Hardman have been the main returners in his absence with little production. "We have other guys who can do it,'' special teams coordinator Dave Toub said.. "Tyreek is exceptional.''
