Broncos Defeat the Chiefs 35-28
It came down to the last two minutes of the game, but the Broncos held on to defeat the Chiefs. Alex Smith was unable to convert on 4th-and-4 from the Denver 13-yard line with less than two minutes remaining, and the Broncos went on to win, 35-28.
With the victory, the Broncos move to 10-2 on the season, as Kansas City drops their third consecutive game, falling to 9-3. Denver has control over the AFC West and the AFC's No. 1 seed, as they hold the definitive tiebreaker over the Chiefs in the event of a tie between both teams.
It was a story of two different halves in this game.
Alex Smith and the Chiefs were able to move the football at will, and the Chiefs raced out to a 21-7 lead early on in the second quarter. Denver's offense turned the football over twice in the first half, but still managed to put 14 points on the board to enter halftime with just a seven-point deficit.
The second half began, and it was all Broncos.
Denver scored 21 unanswered points in the second half, taking a 35-21 lead in the fourth quarter. After Kansas City answered with a touchdown drive of their own with a little over six minutes remaining in the game, Kansas City's defense forced the Broncos to punt, giving Alex Smith and the offense another opportunity to tie the game.
The Chiefs fell short of doing so.
The Broncos (10-2) will host the Tennessee Titans (5-7) in Week 14, as they look to hold onto the AFC's No. 1 seed. The Chiefs (9-3) will look to end their three-game losing streak as they visit the Washington Redskins (3-8) in Week 14
