Chiefs 29, Broncos 13

Manning limps to lopsided loss

DENVER — Peyton Manning is hurt — and sorry he hurt his team.

"I thought I felt good enough to play," Manning said after the worst day of his career in Denver's loss to Kansas City. "Maybe it was a false feeling or a wrong feeling."

Manning's right foot, right shoulder and ribs are injured.

Though he broke the NFL record for passing yards (see notebook) Manning threw for just 35 yards on 5-of-20 passing, zero touchdowns and four interceptions before being benched in favor of Brock Osweiler.

"He's still a great quarterback — just not what he used to be," Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson said.

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak accepted blame, saying he was kicking himself for playing Manning in the first place.
