It continues to be a season of ups and downs for the Kansas City Chiefs. After losing their first three games of the season, the Chiefs then won four straight.
Now they have lost their second game in a row after falling 17-10 to the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday. After scoring just three points in a loss to the Miami Dolphins last week, the Chiefs (4-5) could muster just 10 points against a Denver defense that seems to be improving as the season continues. But the main weapon for Denver (4-5) was its running game led by second year quarterback Tim Tebow.
With both Knowshon Morena and Willis McGehee out of the game with first half injuries, Tebow led a Denver offense that racked up 245 yards rushing and just 69 passing. Tebow rushed for one touchdown from seven yards out and threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to Eric Decker in the 4th quarter that helped put the game on ice.
The Chiefs lone touchdown came when Matt Cassel his running back Le’Ron McClain with a one-yard touchdown pass late in the 3rd quarter. The Chiefs now begin a difficult stretch of five games they have then playing at New England, then home against Pittsburgh, followed by road games at Chicago and the NY Jets, and ending at home against the World Champion Green Bay Packers.
