The Kansas City Chiefs (9-3) fell 35-28 to the Denver Broncos (10-2) on Sunday afternoon. The Chiefs dropped their third straight game when a late drive to tie the ball game came up short. The Broncos are now in full control of the AFC West.

The Chiefs started out 9-0, mainly on the strength of an aggressive  defense that prided itself on getting to opposing quarterbacks. During the first half of the season, the defense carried a sputtering, inconsistent offense. In the three losses, the defense has been unable to stop anyone, giving up an average of 34.3 points. The Chiefs only gave up 12.3 points a game in the 9 wins.

Conversely, on offense, Kansas City is averaging 27.7 points a game in the losses, while they scored 23.9 a game in the wins.

Although the Broncos are just one game ahead of the Chiefs in the win/loss column, they hold the advantage on any tie breaker as they beat the Chiefs twice. It will be very difficult for Kansas City to work themselves into a AFC West title. They need to win out, and Denver would need to lose two of their remaining 4 games.
