Jamaal Charles rushed for a pair of touchdowns for the Chiefs, and Husain Abdullah returned an interception 44 yards for the team's final TD.
* Houston and KC have played only once since 2008, and have met only once previously at Kansas City, with the Texans claiming a 24-21 win at Arrowhead on September 26, 2004. Houston has won the last two games between the teams, both at home: 20-3 in 2007, and 35-31 in 2010.
