I take it back about Kansas City winning the division. They may, instead, set the league record for turnovers.
In case you missed it, after being tied at 17-17 for much of the second half, the Chiefs scored the go-ahead touchdown with 2:27 left in the game. Denver went 80 yards in less than two minutes and re-tied the game. Kansas City is running the ball at their own 20 after the kickoff, obviously intending to kill the clock and go to overtime, fumbles the ball for their fifth turnover of the game. Denver scoops up the loose ball and takes it into the end zone. Game over.
Alex Smith is returning to form; was 16 of 25, with two interceptions, no touchdowns and a quarterback rating
of 53.9 for the night.
The new Denver coach is an idiot. Imposing "his game" on a quarterback who has been wildly successful in a totally different style of offense is ridiculous, and the difference was blindingly obvious when Kubiak got out of the way late in the game and allowed Manning to do what he does best.
