Week 14: Kansas City 20 Denver 3
RB Nick Moore...and the KC defense...came up big in a week 14 defensive tussle, in Denver. The win puts KC and Denver in a deadlock at the top of the division. Both teams sit at 10-4, with the Oakland squad 1 game back, at 9-5.
In a slow moving first half, Denver scored first with a Clark Laney 40yd FG. The score remained 3-0 until late in the 2nd quarter when Josef Withers booted a 51yd FG with less than 1 minute left in the half. The half time chat in the locker room must have been a positive one, because the KC defense came up big in the 2nd half, shutting down the Denver run game. The offense added 17 points to get the victory.Game notes
