Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn were spotted on the sidelines during the Denver Broncos' all-important AFC West battle against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night in Week 11.
This famous duo had one of the best views in the house, standing right on the turf at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium.

These two megastars are both at the top of their game in their respective sports and obviously wanted to witness two of the best teams the NFL has to offer.
Vonn is in the Colorado area to train at the U.S. Ski Team’s speed center for the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
Woods and Vonn had the fortune to witness a great game, as Peyton Manning’s Broncos dethroned the previously undefeated Chiefs in an epic divisional matchup. Denver won 27-17, with Manning throwing for over 300 yards and a score and rookie rusher Montee Ball punching in two touchdowns.
Vonn posted a photo on Instagram with a message indicating that she had a great time and closed it with the line, “#gobroncos.”
The matchup—broadcast live as part of NBC’s weekly Sunday Night Football programming—was one of the most high-profile showdowns of the year and drew 25 million viewers, according to Ryan Faughnder of the Los Angeles Times.
Woods and Vonn are obviously used to the spotlight, and their presence at such a huge NFL game is just another example of that.
