KANSAS CITY (Sporting Alert) — The Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos and New Orleans Saints were among the winners in the NFL on Sunday.
Kansas City Chiefs (8-0) stayed undefeated in the NFL this season with a victory over the Cleveland Browns in Week 8 on Sunday. Here are the results and updated team records after Sunday afternoon fixtures.
The Chiefs improved to 8-0 on the season with a 23-17 victory over the Browns at a packed out Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. It is the the second 8-0 start in Kansas City history and quarterback Alex Smith is loving it.
“We love it,” Smith, who threw for 225 yards and two touchdowns on 24/36, said. “You want the stages to get bigger.
“That’s why you put all the work in. You want this opportunity. You want that honor.”
He added: “I mean, not that anybody sneaks up on anybody in this league, but yeah, we’re the only undefeated team.
“I think that teams have recognized how we’re playing and no question, they’re coming prepared.”
Returning winning ways Sunday were the Denver Broncos (7-1) who battered the Washington Redskins (2-5) 45-21 to bounce back from last week’s defeat to AFC Southern Division leaders Indianapolis Colts, which was their first defeat of the season.
At Wembley Stadium in London, the San Francisco 49ers (6-2) won their fifth successive game and handed the winless Jacksonville Jaguars (0-8) their eighth defeat in a row, following a 42-10 result.
