NFL: Manning leads Broncos to 27-17 win over KC


< Previous Page


The game-time temperature of 43 degrees brought Manning’s blue-and-gray glove out for the first time this season but didn’t slow the quarterback or his offense at all.

Knowshon Moreno ran for 79 yards and kept the chains moving for Denver, while Wes Welker took his turn as Manning’s favorite target, catching eight passes for 72 yards before leaving to be evaluated for a possible concussion.

Though one touchdown pass marked a season low for Manning, it gave him 71 in his year-plus with the Broncos, already tying him for third in franchise history with Jake Plummer and Brian Griese. Manning has 34 on the season and is still on pace to break the record of the man he’ll face next week — Brady — in yet another big game for the Broncos, this time at New England.

Manning refused to answer questions about his ankles after the game. "Not doing the weekly checkups and updates," he said.

No need on this night.

And while the Chiefs got shut out on the sack end, Shaun Phillips had a monster game for the Broncos: 10 tackles, two quarterback hits, two pass deflections and 1.5 sacks to more than make up for an off night from Von Miller, who only had one tackle.

Notes: Broncos S Rahim Moore left the game with a lower leg injury. ... Del Rio’s first challenge of the season was a success. It gave the Broncos a first down with less than 5 minutes left after the officials had marked them short after a third-down gain. ... The Broncos finished with 13 penalties for 82 yards, including three apiece on Kansas City’s last two scoring drives.
