The Denver Broncos (8-3) stayed perfect in divisional play with a 17-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs (1-10) at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.

In a somewhat boring game that was highlighted by strong defensive play and a pair of brothers—Dustin and Britton Colquitt—punting a combined ten times, the Broncos were able to come away with a victory thanks to a balanced offensive attack.

With Willis McGahee on injured reserve, fourth-year running back Knowshon Moreno stepped up for the Broncos backfield, gaining 111 yards from scrimmage off 24 touches on the afternoon.

Manning, having a bit of an off day, went 22-of-37 for 285 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception.

It was an ugly win, but a win for the Broncos, nonetheless.  Winning a division game, on the road in Arrowhead is no small feat, even if it was against a one-win team.

Moving forward, the Broncos have a second consecutive AFC West title in their sites. The Chiefs, on the other hand, have a lot of work to do.
