The Kansas City Chiefs are an imperfect team with a perfect record.

Their offense has been sluggish at best, sloppy at worst. Their defense has given up big plays. Their special teams have made a few mistakes that could have proven costly.

Still, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith points out that even if everything went perfectly, the Chiefs wouldn't have any better record than the 9-0 mark they carry into their week off.

The Chiefs met to review video of Sunday's 23-13 win over Buffalo on Monday before scattering for their bye. While players are enjoying some time off, the coaches plan to begin preparation for a high-profile showdown with AFC West rival Denver the following week.

The Chiefs visit the 7-1 Broncos on Nov. 17.
