Score: Denver 27, Chiefs 17
Player of the Game: Peyton Manning. Bastard.
Kansas City’s defense played well enough to win this game, but the offense let them down. Against an offense like Denver’s, the more snaps they get, the more likely they are to get the big plays they need.
2. Dwayne Bowe
Denver had no one to stop Bowe tonight. Kansas City needs to take advantage of this the second time around.
3. Round Two
Chiefs have the return game at home where they can put a strangle-hold on the division. It sucks to lose tonight, yes, but there is still a lot of football left to be played.
TWEET OF THE GAME
Pioli breaking down the Chiefs is like Hoover telling us what went wrong with the Great Depression.

1. Pass Rush
What pass rush? It simply did not exist.

3. Red Zone
Four trips, two touchdowns. The margin for error against Denver is very small, so only 17 points in four trips is not good. Three touchdowns changes the game.
Hey, the Chiefs are still 9-1. That ain’t bad. GO CHIEFS!
