Chiefs Vs. Broncos Final Score: Denver Denied In 7-3 Kansas City Victory

The Denver Broncos were unable to secure the AFC West title on Sunday, falling to the Kansas City Chiefs, 7-3. It was the team's third straight loss, putting the team at 8-8. However, they could still win the division as long as the Oakland Raiders fall to the San Diego Chargers.

As for the Broncos game, the Denver offense was deeply conservative and saw the team run 47 times for 216 yards. Willis McGahee had his seventh 100-yard running game with 145 yards on 28 carries. However, Tim Tebow was just 6-of-22 for 60 yards. He threw an interception on his last play of the game.

The Denver defense was stout, keeping the Chiefs to just a Dexter McCluster 21-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. But the defense can only do so much to win a game. And without the Broncos' offense clicking not even allowing just one touchdown would allow the Broncos the victory.

The Broncos are expected to play the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of the 2012 NFL playoffs.
