Chiefs' opportunistic defense to test high-scoring Falcons

ATLANTA (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons have found different ways to win despite ranking near the bottom of the league in yards allowed.

Those winning formulas will be tested when the two teams currently on pace for the playoffs meet Sunday.

The Chiefs (8-3) rank 28th in total defense but lead the NFL with 24 takeaways and a plus-14 turnover differential. The Falcons (7-4) rank 27th in total defense but lead the NFL with 32.5 points per game - a franchise-record pace.
