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.
