Broncos gamble, lose to Chiefs, fall 2 back in division

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Broncos coach Vic Fangio declared that "field goals weren't going to beat" the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night.

Neither were 20-play drives that resulted in no points.

That long march that consumed more than 11 minutes of the second quarter didn't lead to a 22-9 loss to the Chiefs by itself, but it sure didn't help. And Fangio's failed decision to go for it on fourth-and-2 at the Kansas City 8, rather than kick a field goal to make it 10-6 at halftime, left the demoralized Broncos playing catch-up the rest of the way.
