 To The Brink

The Denver Broncos missed an opportunity to take a step toward winning the AFC West today.

They were outplayed in all phases of the game and now must win next week at home against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Tim Tebow threw for 185 yard and a touchdown and ran for another touchdown but threw four interceptions, his worst game in his young career.

Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick went 15/27 for 196 yards and running back C.J. Spiller ran for 111 yards on a Denver defense that struggled all day to stop the Buffalo offense.

Bills punt returner Leodis McKelvin returned a 2nd quarter punt 80 yards for a touchdown and the Broncos never fully recovered. Special teams were a struggle all day for Denver as they allowed 135 yards on punt returns and another 101 yards on kick returns.

The Bills out-gained the Broncos 351 to 293 and the Broncos turned the ball over four times while the Bills went all day without a turnover.

The Broncos are stumbling toward the final week of the season and now the season comes down to one week.
