No matter what the Kansas City Chiefs do tonight, they have to know that the high-powered Denver Broncos are going to have an answer for it.
That’s exactly what Peyton Manning and the Broncos are doing this evening in this monster AFC West battle.
After the Broncos scored a touchdown from Peyton Manning to Julius Thomas to make it 10-0, the Chiefs answered right back with a scoring pass play of their own from Alex Smith to Dwayne Bowe to cut it to 10-7.
For the Denver offense, though, all that meant was they just had to push the lead back to 10, and that’s what happened.
Denver got the ball right back and drove 79 yards on 10 plays and finished it off with this one-yard touchdown from the rookie Montee Ball:
You have to remember that the Denver offense is a lot more than just Peyton Manning throwing the ball around to those targets of his. The running backs on this roster can gash you as well.
So, with that, Denver is holding on to a 17-7 lead.
