Denver Broncos Beat Kansas City Chiefs 35-21

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?

The biggest difference between the Sunday game of yesterday and the Sunday Night Football game of two weeks ago wasn’t that the Broncos came back from being down early. No. It was that the KC Chiefs didn’t use the Pats Defensive Playbook. More at Zennie62.com: Denver Broncos Beat Kansas City Chiefs; Eric Decker, Demaryius Thomas Never Saw Bump Coverage
