Denver snapped the Chiefs’ nine-game winning streak Sunday night, but things are still

QUOTES

“He’s a pretty good quarterback … he got away with a couple that most guys wouldn’t be able to get away with. But we need to do a better job of getting a little more pressure on him.” – Andy Reid on Peyton Manning‘s performance

“You hate to put the ball on the ground, and you don’t feel good leaving the field, and they turn around and fumble, and you go on and score. It was a pretty critical series there.” Manning on Anthony Sherman‘s fumble

“I felt like we put ourselves in holes and didn’t start fast enough in the first quarter. Second quarter was better, because we were moving the ball around. We still kind of hurt ourselves at times. Third quarter, we had some opportunities as well, but we stalled out. We couldn’t get anything going. We had some pretty good field position and a chance to make the game tight. We couldn’t get it done. Those two things just scraped my mind, which got us behind and won the best of us.” – Alex Smith

“No, listen, we had opportunities there to score points after the stops that they made and we didn’t do that follow-up offensively. But, our thought our defense gave us… especially to start the second half, I mean, there were two or three stops right there and then field position on two of the three of those, I believe, were in our favor. You’ve got to take full advantage of that and we didn’t do a good enough job offensively once we had the ball.” Reid

NOTES

- After starting his career 13-2 after the bye week, Andy Reid is now 0-2 in his last two post-bye week games.

- Jamaal Charles surpassed 7,000 total yards from scrimmage Sunday. He ranks fifth in team history with 7,004 yards and is 380 behind Larry Johnson for fourth place.

- Alex Smith is now second all-time in Chiefs history for rushing yards by a quarterback in a single-season. He is 69 yards behind Tyler Thigpen for first place.
