KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Houston Texans are headed into the offseason after squandering a 24-0 lead against the Kansas City Chiefs in the divisional round of the playoffs. The Chiefs took advantage of a controversial failed fake punt to help them score 41 consecutive points and eventually coast to a 51-31 victory Sunday. The 51 points that Houston allowed equaled the most in a playoff game since Jacksonville pounded Miami 62-7 in January 2000, while the Texans remained winless in four postseason road games and four trips to the divisional round of the playoffs.
