Chiefs 34, Ravens 14

Great eight for Chiefs in streak

BALTIMORE — During an eight-game winning streak, Kansas City has made this abundantly clear: The opposition will pay for its mistakes.

That is what happened Sunday, when the Chiefs capitalized on an abundance of miscues by the Ravens to earn a place in the NFL record book (see Sideline, 1C).

Safety Tyvon Branch returned a fumble 73 yards for a TD and cornerback Marcus Peters scored on a 90-yard interception return.

"My hat's off to our guys. They take advantage of opportunities," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said.

Kansas City forced three turnovers and didn't commit any. It has a plus-15 turnover differential and believe that winning the turnover battle wins games.

"I certainly do feel like that's the mind-set, yeah," said quarterback Alex Smith, who threw for 171 yards and a touchdown.

The Ravens fell to 2-5 at home, the first time in their 20 seasons in Baltimore they have lost five home games.
