Chiefs Avoid Tebow Time And Beat Broncos, 7-3

Like the 2009 season the Kansas City Chiefs have ended the season on a high note by beating the Denver Broncos and potentially knocking them out of the playoffs. KC completed the game, 7-3. Low scoring, ugly, defensive, whatever you want to call it. They got it done.

The game ended on a Brandon Carr interception. Carr is scheduled to be a free agent this year and most fans want him back so it was a fitting end to the season.

The Chiefs had two sacks on the day and played good defense, only giving up three points. The Broncos did as expected offensively and ran. A lot. Tim Tebow only completed five passes. Willie McGahee had 147 yards but needed 28 carries to do it. The Chiefs offense seemed to be decent moving the ball at times but they were too often ineffective. Only scoring seven points in an NFL game won't win very often.

Kyle Orton finished the game 15-of-29 for 180 yards and played average at best. Dwayne Bowe had a big first half before leaving with a neck injury. (No updates on him.) Dexter McCluster and Thomas Jones combined for 27 carries.

That's it -- 7-9 for the year. Funny to think about but that was my preseason prediction considering the hard schedule. Things didn't go as expected this year (not even close) but the end result sounds about right, surprisingly.

So the playoff scenarios in the AFC West are now easy. If the Oakland Raiders win this afternoon, they're in. If they don't, Denver's in.
