Chiefs receivers keep their scoreless drought going

Updated Sep 13, 2015 at 1:57p ET

Alex Smith's two touchdown passes helped the Chiefs to an early 14-7 lead.

Neither throw went to a wide receiver. Tight end Travis Kelce scored both — which means the receiving corps' scoreless drought goes on.

The last time a Chiefs wideout scored a touchdown? It was in Week 14 — of the 2013 season.

Kelce is making it tough for Smith to look elsewhere, though. He scored on a 10-yard grab early in the first quarter. Then, he crossed across the field uncovered, snagged an easy Smith throw, and rambled for 42 yards down the sideline for his second score.

Smith looked for receiver Jeremy Maclin on the team's next red-zone trip — but the two couldn't connect in the end zone.
