The Kansas City Chiefs defense intercepted the Denver Broncos offense 5 times, leading to a 29-13 road victory from Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver, Colo. It was Kansas City's first regular season win against Denver in eight tries.
The Broncos started the game with the ball and on Manning's first pass attempt of the game, Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters intercepted him for his fourth pick of the season. Peters returned the interception to Denver's 31-yard line.
Quarterback Alex Smith and company took quick advantage of the short field, capping a 5-play drive off with a 4-yard touchdown rushing by running back Charcandrick West, his third of the season in as many games.
Cornerback Sean Smith and linebacker Josh Mauga also had interceptions in the half, and kicker Cairo Santos was a perfect 4 for 4 on field goals, leading to a 19-0 Chiefs lead at halftime.
The Chiefs and Broncos exchanged possessions to begin the third quarter, and then Santos added another field goal to give the Chiefs a 22-0 lead.
Manning threw his fourth interception of the game into the hands of safety Ron Parker on the ensuing possession. This led to the Broncos turning to backup Brock Osweiler for the remainder of the game.
Smith connected with West for an 80-yard touchdown to add to the Kansas City lead in the fourth quarter and the Broncos scored 2 late touchdowns to break up what would have been a Chiefs shutout.
Safety Eric Berry recorded his second interception of the season off of Osweiler in the fourth quarter.
Linebacker Justin Houston recorded 2 sacks in the game. LB Derrick Johnson and defensive linemen Mike DeVito and Jaye Howard each had a sack apiece.
Smith finished 17 for 31 for 204 yards passing and a touchdown. West had both touchdowns for the Chiefs.
