Best: Alex Smith, Chiefs maintain perfect record Next » 3 of 8 « Prev
After having the worst record in the NFL in 2012, the Kansas City Chiefs raised eyebrows all over the country with the best record in the NFL.

With the 23-17 win over the Cleveland Browns, the Chiefs improve to 8-0 behind quarterback Alex Smith, who threw for 225 yards and two touchdowns in the win.

Because the Chiefs are the only remaining undefeated team in the NFL, every week the pressure will get bigger and the games will get tougher, but Smith and the Chiefs welcome that pressure.

"We love it," Smith told ESPN. "You want the stages to get bigger. That's why you put all the work in. You want this opportunity. You want that honor."

If the Chiefs leave their feet on the gas, expect them to trounce the 3-5 Buffalo Bills next week and improve to 9-0.
