KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Every time Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is flushed from the pocket, it seems that one of two things happens. Either he uses his fleet feet to scramble for yards, or he throws it away.

Neither of which is a bad thing.

The Chiefs have never had a quarterback who can make things happen on the ground with the same nimbleness as Smith. Nor have they had one in recent years who is smart enough to throw the ball into the third row of seats rather than take a sack or force a pass into coverage.

It's an example of how selfless Smith has played this season. He has thrown just three interceptions during their 6-0 start.

The Chiefs play Houston on Sunday.
