Instant analysis of Chiefs’ Week 18 win over Broncos | chiefswire

The Chiefs didn’t play they wanted to in this game, especially in the first half. They’d enter halftime trailing the Broncos and they made the adjustments necessary to be able to come out on the other side with a win. It took some a game-changing turnover on the defensive side of the ball and a tough 4-minute drive to close the game, but Kansas City managed to get out on the other side with a win. They’ve got a lot to work on heading into the playoffs, especially if they hope to make a run through some strong AFC competition.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce quickest at his position to 9000 career receiving yards | chiefswire

With 28 yards against the Denver Broncos on Saturday, Kelce has officially reached 9,000 career receiving yards in just his 127th game played. That’s quicker than Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski, who previously held the record at 140 career games. Kelce now becomes one of just six tight ends to ever have 9,000 or more receiving yards in his career, joining Rob Gronkowski (9,149), Shannon Sharpe (9,961), Antonio Gates (11,841), Jason Witten (13,046) and Tony Gonzalez (15,127). Gronk is the only other active player from that list.

Crazy Fumble Return Fuels Kansas City Chiefs’ Much Needed Win Over Denver | newsweek

https://www.newsweek.com/crazy-fumble-return-fuels-kansas-city-chiefs-much-needed-win-over-denver-1667236?piano_t=1

The Broncos, who led 21-20 at the time, had driven deep into Chiefs territory and faced a 2nd-and-2 at the Chiefs’ 9-yard line. Chiefs linebacker Melvin Ingram burst through the line and hit Broncos running back Melvin Gordon in the backfield, jarring the ball loose for a fumble. Chiefs linebacker Nick Bolton picked up the loose ball and rumbled 86 yards unscathed for the go-ahead touchdown. A successful two-point conversion gave Kansas City a 28-21 lead.

WATCH: Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon shows off spin move on first touchdown | chiefswire

In his second game back from injured reserve, McKinnon got an increased workload on Saturday against the Denver Broncos. Running one of his first routes of the second half, McKinnon ran a quick swing out of the backfield and caught the pass. At first, it looked like he was going to be tackled well behind even the first down marker, but after a slick spin move and a timely jump cut, McKinnon muscled his way into the endzone.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid provides injury updates after win over Broncos | chiefswire

Speaking to the media after the game, Chiefs HC Andy Reid confirmed some information about a few of the injuries the team suffered in Week 18 against the Denver Broncos. He started with WR Tyreek Hill, who suffered a heel injury during pregame warmups that limited him during the course of the game.

Key takeaways from first half of Chiefs vs. Broncos Week 18 | chiefswire

to be fair, we’re #1-1/2 at the moment … if you REALLY want to slice things down to a razor-thin margin

yes, KC *COULD* be top seed with a Titans loss, but until that happens KC has a lock on the #2 seed (we do NOT have a lock on #1, so there’s that)

I hope you are now less confused 🙂

Just to show how old milestones are becoming no big deal…
When the league played 12 games, a 1000 yd rusher had to average 83 yds a game. That’s a lot.
Went to 14, 71.4yds/gm. Still a healthy amount
16, 62.5. A good game for a solid back, but nothing special
17? Now you only need 58.8. A couple of good games balance out the bad…going to be happening a lot.
Yesterday, Patrick was on pace for almost that much. 1000yd years from running QBs is going to be common.
Dax breaks the cowgirl record in an extra game. Pfft.
Asterisks for everyone!

Cooper Kupp, who COULD break a coupla records today was saying much the same thing: that the records in front of him were 16 game seasons and that even IF he broke any of them, it would be “different” because now it’s 17 games

and FYI: Dick “Night Train” Lane had 14 INT’s in 1952 … a 12 game schedule

Virtually any NFL quarterback can have a good game – the main difference is what happens during crunch time. Lock did not make the throws he needed and Mahomes did. Add to that – bad clock management by the Broncos and the cowardly decision by Fangio to kick the FG as well as we wore them down by the end – and victory smiled upon our face.

THAT’S luck, my friend …

Pick it up a notch? They better.. we just made Drew Luck look like a legit NFL QB which he isn’t, not even close.
Ward’s play has been suspect lately and last night, our defense was totally confused for most of the game. Thank goodness Ingram made that incredible play, otherwise we’d be looking at a 3rd or 4th seed this morning.
