Chiefs vs. Broncos, Week 17: Secondary comes up big for Denver

CHirs Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Brady Quinn and the Chiefs were stifled by a huge performance from the Broncos' secondary on Sunday.

There was no slowing down the Denver Broncos on Sunday, as they clinched the No. 1 seed in the AFC Playoffs with their 11th straight win, a 38-3 demolishing of the Kansas City Chiefs at Sports Authority Field. From start to finish, the game was all Broncos as they whooped the Chiefs both defensively and offensively.

One of the best features of the team on Sunday was its surprisingly upstart secondary -- a section of the team that has been getting ignored in favor of the dominant pass-rush all year -- who put up some big numbers against Brady Quinn and the Chiefs' passing attack. Mile High Report had it down as one of the big pluses of the game:

The secondary played the best game of the season, some of it may have had to do with Brady Quinn being the opposing QB but they were all over the field and only allowed 49 passing yards, for the ENTIRE game. That's amazing so a shout out to that group.

Denver's playoff schedule is set now, with the first-round bye in hand. The Wild Card games in the AFC will feature the Indianapolis Colts taking on the Balitmore Ravens and the Houston Texans hosting the Cincinnati Bengals in a 2011 Wild Card re-match.
