KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Alex Smith tossed two touchdown passes Sunday and the Kansas City Chiefs remained the NFL's lone unbeaten team with a 23-17 decision over Cleveland.

Smith hooked up with Dexter McCluster and Anthony Sherman on scoring strikes, completing 24-of-36 passes for 225 yards in the victory.

Jamaal Charles provided 120 yards of total offense for the Chiefs (8-0), who built a 20-7 lead but then had to hang on down the stretch to continue their best start since 2003.

The Browns (3-5) dropped a third straight despite a strong performance from Jason Campbell, who amassed 293 passing yards with two touchdowns on 22-of-36 efficiency.

Josh Gordon led Cleveland's receiving corps, making five grabs for 132 yards and a score.
