The Denver Broncos came back from a 21-7 deficit to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 35-28. Broncos receivers Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas combined to catch most of his throws, with Decker snagging four of Broncos QB Peyton Manning’s five touchdown passes.
Peyton Manning threw for 405 yards and Decker caught eight for 174 and four TDs. Thomas had three for 106 yards including an amazing 77-yard catch and run. Knowshon Moreno grabbed Manning’s other TD pass.
Why was Manning able to do that against the Kansas City Chiefs but not the New England Patriots?
