Knowshon Moreno owns the Chiefs. Moreno has two career 100-yard rushing games and both came against the Chiefs. Moreno also has two career two-touchdown games and both came against the Chiefs.
Both Broncos running backs injured in the first quarter. It's a hamstring for Willie McGahee and a knee for Knowshon Moreno. The Broncos say McGahee's return is questionable and Moreno's is doubtful.
Broncos don't throw a pass in the first quarter: The Broncos ran 14 plays in the first quarter -- all rushes. Their first pass came on the first play of the second quarter.
Jonathan Baldwin might have had the best catch I've ever seen (but it didn't count). Seriously, one of the best ever. Cassel went deep to him and the Broncos defender was right on top of Baldwin, who turned around and with his hands behind the defender, he pulled in the ball and lodged it against the defender's back. Baldwin turned over and held onto the ball. But....it was all called back due to offsetting penalties.
Broncos have no passing yards in the first half. In fact, they haven't completed a pass since about nine and a half minutes left in the third quarter of last week's game. And they lead by 10 points.
Chiefs first half offense was miserable. 18 yards passing for Cassel and he's also the leading rusher with 16 yards. Punt, punt, punt....you get the idea. KC's offense did nothing in the first half.
Longest rush of the season for the Chiefs. Jackie Battle ripped off a 34-yard run for the Chiefs putting them in Broncos territory and that run is the longest on the season for KC. (Miss you, Jamaal Charles.) We're just under 11 minutes in the third quarter and the Chiefs are threatening for the first time all game.
Paper airplane all over the place. Someone from the upper level had a big paper airplane they made and threw it off the top. It cruised back and forth, left and right, through the air before finally flying right into a few of the players on the sideline. Incredible path for that paper airplane. Lots of fans are throwing paper airplanes made out of the cards they used to make the "Thank You Veterans" card.
Once again, Chiefs go from lifeless to signs of life. The first half often hasn't been kind to the Chiefs this year and that's been the case today However, as they have before (like the first San Diego game), KC's offense starts to show up in the second half. The Chiefs offense went 67 yards on eight plays to open the second half and get seven points. Here's the touchdown:
Tebow's second completed pass is a big one. His first one was a simple pass into the flat midway through the third quarter and his second one was a 56-yard strike to Eric Decker. That came on third and long, too. What a killer.
4th and five just about ends it for KC. Cassel dropped back to pass in an effort to convert on fourth down and was hit as threw, and the ball fluttered incomplete. Cassel was under pressure today and even when he had time there was never a sense that he and the Chiefs offense were going to march down the field.
Down goes Dorsey. Glenn Dorsey was injured the in the fourth quarter of the game. Trainers helped him as he walked off the field, and then they put him in a motorized cart and took him to the locker room. No word on what's wrong but he had a big leg brace on in the locker room after the game.
Chiefs lose....again. Ugh. What a terrible feeling entering Dolphins and Broncos weeks -- expecting to win -- and then losing. The locker room seemed deflated after the game, like they didn't want to have this feeling again.
