Peyton Manning threw two touchdown passes, Connor Barth was perfect on five field-goal attempts and the Broncos beat the Chiefs 29-16 on Sunday night to remain alone in first place in the AFC West.
As if the Chiefs need any more reasons to want to dismantle the Denver Broncos, revenge will be on their mind. As will proving their worth following the loss to the previously winless Oakland Raiders.
Head coach Andy Reid won’t let his team let up against the Raiders and blow an opportunity for a victory, and quarterback Alex Smith is too smart to take any opponent lightly.
Terrance Knighton batted away Alex Smith’s fourth-and-goal pass to Dwayne Bowe with 15 seconds left, preserving the Denver Broncos’ 24-17 win over the scrappy Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
Despite Kansas City losing All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles with a left ankle injury in the first quarter against the Broncos, the Chiefs held their own for much of the first half, only to see the Broncos pull away for a 21-10 lead at halftime.
If he gets the chance, Emmanuel Sanders will shake Andy Reid’s hand Sunday when the Denver Broncos host the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Kansas City Chiefs were trounced by the Tennessee Titans in Week One, at home, nonetheless. They’ll be hungry for a first win of the season in Denver, versus an AFC West foe in the Broncos.
Quarterbacks are breaking records left and right in the pass-happy NFL, but that makes high-caliber running backs all the more valuable. Many of last season’s top performers appear on this list, but keep in mind there’s usually a major bust or two, likely due to the heavy workload of the position causing a hangover effect.
Running back Jamaal Charles has become a veritable workhorse for the Kansas City Chiefs, and it is not surprising since he’s one of the best backs in the entire NFL. With a new contract extension in place, the Chiefs hope for another great season out of Charles, and they’re likely going to get one.
The Broncos won all but one of their games against AFC West opponents last season. It might be difficult to repeat that feat this year.
