NFL Recap: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Denver Broncos 22:9

The Kansas City Chiefs extended their winning streak with a 22-9 win over the Denver Broncos in week 13 and are level with the top teams of the AFC. The decisive factor in the game was once again the strong defense of the home side, who took advantage of every mistake.

The Broncos started this game with two 3-and-outs, even marching backwards on their first drive after a 2nd and 1. The Chiefs, in turn, did better and scored a touchdown on their first drive – after 12 plays, Patrick Mahomes scrambled to find the end zone from 10 yards.

And before the Broncos even got into the game, it was 10-0 for Kansas City, as kicker Harrison Butker had raised with a 56-yard field goal. The Broncos then put down two long drives. The first went over ten moves and earned them a 42-yard field goal by Brandon McManus, the second took 11 minutes off the clock. But after 20 moves the Chiefs stopped the guests at their own 8-yard line at 4th and 2. Break: 10: 3 Chiefs.

After the break, the Broncos sensed an interception of Mahome’s morning air deflected by Tyreek Hill, but had to pound quickly. Butker added another field goal (45 YDS) a little later and then the Broncos experienced the next setback: Bridgewater tried a deep shot towards Jerry Jeudy, but overlooked the lurking safety Juan Thornhill, who grabbed the interception.

The Broncos defense quickly forced the next punt, but that resulted in a muff, which KC conquered at the end of the third quarter in the opposing red zone – a Broncos player was blocked in returner Diontae Spencer and he had no chance. to catch the ball. The Chiefs did not go ahead again, but Butker increased the lead with an easy 26-yard field goal at the start of the fourth quarter.

Chiefs vs. Broncos: Pick-Six makes the decision

The Broncos then made another drive deep into the opposing half, but Bridgewater threw a deflected interception under pressure to Safety Daniel Sorensen, who finally had a free path for a 75-yard return touchdown to decide.

The Broncos managed a touchdown after all – after eleven plays, Bridgewater found running back Javonte Williams on screen for a 13-yard score.

In the end there was the fifth success in a row for KC, which is now temporarily level with the top teams at the top of the AFC playoff seeding list – like the Patriots, Bills (play against each other on Monday), Ravens and Titans they are now at 8- 4 and still have every chance of winning the top seed at the conference.
