Chiefs' maligned defense shines in victory over Arizona

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs finally got Justin Houston back onto the field Sunday against Arizona, and the four-time Pro Bowl linebacker made one of the plays of the game when he picked off Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen on a second-half screen pass.

The Chiefs also got safety Daniel Sorensen back from injured reserve, where he had resided since breaking his leg in training camp, and he five tackles while providing a hard-hitting presence.

Perhaps it's no surprise the Chiefs defense played the best it has all season.
