Chiefs 10, Broncos 6

Chiefs even score on listless Broncos

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Make no mistake about it: The Chiefs were out to avenge a 20-point loss to the Broncos three weeks ago.

None of the Chiefs said so last week, but after a ragged win over Denver, there was no denying the game was extra special.

"The performance they put on us three weeks ago was disheartening. It was embarrassing," Chiefs cornerback Brandon Carr said. "We had a sick feeling in us."

Jamaal Charles ran for 116 yards and Matt Cassel threw a 3-yard pass to Leonard Pope for the only touchdown as Kansas City improved to 6-0 at home.

The Broncos were officially eliminated from playoff contention and have lost 17 of their past 22 under coach Josh McDaniels.

McDaniels, snubbed in the postgame handshake by Chiefs coach Todd Haley after the 49-29 loss Nov. 14 in Denver, actually got a postgame hug and a pat on the head this time.

Dwayne Bowe, who had caught a touchdown in a team-record seven straight games and came in atop the league with 14 TD catches, was held without a catch by cornerback Champ Bailey.

  2. Trevor Plouffe is DFA'd by Rays, Kittredge recalled for now

    Blogs

    INF Trevor Plouffe didn't do much with the opportunity the Rays gave him, and time ran out Tuesday when he was designated for assignment after the game.

    Plouffe hit just .178, with one homer and two RBIs, in 31 games for the Rays, his primary playing time from starting at first or third against lefties.

  3. Rays journal: Offense shows signs of waking up in win over Blue Jays (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say the Rays are out of it, but scoring a half-dozen runs in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays was another promising sign.

  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Tuesday's Rays-Blue Jays game

    The Heater

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off right knee surgery, often takes it easy on the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single, finishing with three more hits.

  5. Rays are full of ideas they'd like to share when commissioner visits

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Commissioner Rob Manfred is coming to the Trop today. Hmm. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg will be there to greet him. Hmmmm. And they have a scheduled joint media session. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.
