The Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos spent 60 minutes punching each other in the stomach, but the final play was by Denver. In a defensive battle, the Broncos came out on top 31-24. Both teams battered the opposing quarterbacks, and forced turnovers. Ironically, it was a defensive touchdown by cornerback Bradley Roby that sealed the victory.

Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles had a solid game rushing, but two huge fumbles were the deciding factor in the loss. The Chiefs offense continues to struggle to push the ball down the field, but the defense kept it close. Denver goes home 2-0, riding high and the Chiefs at 1-1 have to lick their wounds and figure out what went wrong.
