Chiefs Defeat Broncos, 29-19, on Monday Night Football

The Chiefs forced a season-high five turnovers on Monday night

The Kanas City Chiefs defeated the Denver Broncos, 29-19, at Arrowhead Stadium on Monday night to move to 6-2 on the season.

The Chiefs forced a season-high five turnovers, including a 45-yard fumble return for a touchdown by cornerback Marcus Peters, in the victory.

Peters also had an interception in the contest, notching his league-leading 17th since 2015, while defensive backs Ron Parker and Kenneth Acker tallied their first picks of the year.

Chiefs' quarterback Alex Smith completed 14 of 31 passes for 202 yards and a score, finding tight end Travis Kelce for a 29-yard touchdown in the first quarter.

It was Smith's 16th touchdown pass of the season, passing his total from all of last season.

Kelce tallied a team-high 133 yards on seven catches, marking his third-straight game with triple-digit yards through the air against Denver.

Kicker Harrison Butker connected on all five of his field goal attempts, including a 51-yarder. The rookie kicker has converted 18 straight field goals since joining the Chiefs in Week 4.

It marked just the sixth time that Denver allowed 29-plus points in a game since 2015, with four of those coming at the hands of Kansas City.

The Chiefs will look to continue their winning ways as they travel to Dallas next week to take on the Cowboys.
