Jamaal Charles rushed for 88 yards and Jones had 71 as the Chiefs finished with 159 yards on the ground. They entered the game No. 1 in the NFL with an average of 165.3 yards.
Arizona’s opening drive ended with a 36-yard field goal by Jay Feely, but the Cardinals’ final five possessions of the first half ended with punts.
