Coach: Andy Reid (sixth year with Chiefs — 56-27 regular season, 1-4 postseason; 20th year overall — 186-120-1 regular season, 11-13 playoffs).
Record: 3-0 (first in AFC West).
Last week: Beat San Francisco 38-27.
Next week: vs. Jacksonville.
Play caller: Coach Andy Reid.
Analysis: Reid, 60, relinquished the play-calling duties late last season to Matt Nagy, who parlayed that role into the Chicago head coaching job. Former Colorado running back Eric Bienemy is the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator. He was CU’s coordinator from 2011-12 before joining Reid’s original Chiefs staff. … KC has the league’s best offense through three weeks — first in scoring (39.3 points per game), second on third down (50 percent) and in the red zone (91.7 percent) and seventh in yards (398.3). … The Chiefs have bludgeoned teams in the first quarter (49-6). … Second-year QB Patrick Mahomes started last year’s win at Denver and is already in the MVP race. He possesses terrific arm strength, anticipation, mobility and command of the offense. He leads the league in TD passes (13) and rating (137.4). … RB Kareem Hunt won last year’s rushing title (1,327 yards), but is 17th this year (168) and has only a 3.2-yard average. Spencer Ware and Damien Williams are the backups and FB Anthony Sherman has two catches for 52 yards. … TE Travis Kelce has been named to the last three Pro Bowls, targeted at least 103 times in each year. He has 229 yards receiving on a team-high 16 catches. Kelce has at least one catch in 66 consecutive games. … Backup TE Demetrius Harris had a 13-yard TD catch against San Francisco. … The offense revolves around Kelce and the receivers: Sammy Watkins, Tyreek Hill and Chris Conley. Hill, one of the league’s fastest players, and Watkins, the Bill-turned-Ram-turned-Chief each have 14 catches. Conley plays in three-receiver personnel and two of his five catches have been TDs. … The offensive line is LT Eric Fisher, LG Cameron Erving, C Mitch Morse, RG Laurent Duvemay-Tardif and RT Mitchell Schwartz. Fisher was the second overall pick in 2013, Erving a former first-round pick for Cleveland. Schwartz will be making his 100th career start. … The Chiefs have an NFL-low one turnover.
Play caller: Coordinator Bob Sutton.
Analysis: Sutton, 67, in his sixth year as the Chiefs’ play-caller. He was the Jets’ coordinator from 2006-08. To say the least, he is embattled despite a 3-0 start. The Chiefs have only one interception in 141 opponent’s pass attempts and six sacks. A headline on a Chiefs fan site: “What Exactly Is Bob Sutton Being Paid To Do?” … The Chiefs are last in yards allowed (474.0), 30th against the run (11.13), 27th against the pass (362.7) and 30th in scoring (30.7). … On the filp side, they are first on third down (25.8 percent). … Teams have had to get pass happy against the Chiefs; they have allowed only 43 first-half points. … KC plays a base 3-4 scheme. … Up front, the Week 3 starters were NT Xavier Williams, DE Chris Jones and DE Allen Bailey. Jones becomes an interior pass rusher on third down. Depth is provided by NT Derrick Nnadi (rookie third-rounder) and DE Jarvis Jenkins. … Veterans Justin Houston and Dee Ford play the OLB spots. Houston, Ford and Bailey have two sacks apiece. … Houston had seasons of 10, 11 and 22 sacks from 2012-14, but hasn’t cracked double digits since. … The ILBs are Anthony Hitchens (ex of Dallas) and Reggie Ragland (ex of Buffalo). Hitchens leads KC with 32 tackles. … The secondary has played without two-time All Pro S Eric Berry, out all three games with a heel injury. He tore his Achilles’ in the 2017 opener. … The top three CBs are Kendall Fuller, Steven Nelson and Orlando Scandrick. Fuller was acquired from Washington in the trade for QB Alex Smith. Scandrick played for Dallas, was released by the Redskins in camp and serves as the nickel. … S Eric Murray is filling in for Berry and is second on the team with 20 tackles. S Ron Parker was released by KC on March 12 when he was unwilling to take a pay cut. But he re-signed Sept. 1 and has 19 tackles and the team’s only interception.
Coordinator: Dave Toub.
Analysis: Toub, 56, is regarded as one of the league’s top special teams coaches and has held a coordinator role since 2004. … The Chiefs are first and sixth, respectively, in punt and kick coverage, and first and tied for 25th, respectively, in punt and kickoff returns. … Hill is a dynamic punt returner (91-yard TD in Week 1 against the Chargers) and De’Anthony Thomas’ only punt return went for 48 yards. … P Dustin Colquitt has only nine attempts, but a whopping 49-yard net average. … K Harrison Butker has made all 18 of his kicks (two FGs and 16 PATs).
