ORCHARD PARK — Sean Smith returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown and Tamba Hali scored on an 11-yard fumble return in the Kansas City Chiefs’ 23-13 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

The defense made up for a sputtering offense that managed just 210 yards, and for its own deficiencies.

The Chiefs gave up a season-worst 470 yards to a Bills offense that was led by undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel, making his first career start. Tuel finished 18 of 39 for 229 yards passing, including a 59-yard touchdown to Marquise Goodwin. Tuel, however, threw two interceptions that led to 10 points for the Chiefs. Kansas City (9-0) remained the NFL’s only undefeated team and matched the best start in franchise history set in 2003. Buffalo fell to 3-6.

n At East Rutherford, N.J., Nick Folk remained perfect this season by kicking four field goals, Rex Ryan’s defense held Drew Brees and the high-scoring Saints to six points in the second half, and New York had seven plays of at least 19 yards in a 26-20 upset of New Orleans.

Ryan is now 7-3 against his brother, Rob, and the Jets (5-4) maintained their string of alternating wins and losses. They tied the 2005 New England Patriots for the longest such string to begin a season, according to STATS.

Folk is 23 for 23 on field goals and 14 of 14 on extra points.
