Broncos Vs. Chiefs Score Update: Running Game Has Denver Up 7-0

The Denver Broncos haven't completed a pass yet in Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but that hasn't stopped them from already surpassing the century mark in yardage. With the running game absolutely churning early, the Broncos are up 7-0 following a Tim Tebow touchdown run.

Tebow's only been tasked with throwing the ball once so far, a pass that wasn't completed, but it hasn't really mattered. It also hasn't really mattered that the team lost running back Willis McGahee, one of the offense's key weapons, to a hamstring injury early in the first quarter. Back-up Knowshon Moreno has already ran for 52 yards, and the team's accumulated 115 yards on the ground through 17 carries thus far.

With the defense limiting what the Chiefs' offense has been able to do so far, you can tell that this is going to be the Broncos' formula going forward. They'll never be able to pass the ball much, but they've shown so far today that they can be successful through defense and the running game.
