The Kansas City Chiefs extended their win streak over the Denver Broncos to 13, as Patrick Mahomes bested Drew Lock, 28-24. Kansas City was actually facing a four-point halftime deficit thanks to two first-half rushing touchdowns from Lock, but a second-half surge got the Chiefs into the win column, and gives them a chance at the No. 1 seed in the AFC should the Tennessee Titans lose to the Houston Texans on Sunday.
Mahomes completed 27 of 44 passes for 270 yards and two touchdowns. Tyreek Hill injured his heel pregame, and played limited snaps. With him out, Mecole Hardman was the leading receiver for Kansas City with eight catches for 103 yards on 11 targets.
The last Broncos QB to beat the Chiefs: Peyton Manning in 2015.
Since then, Denver is 0-13 vs. Kansas City, with all of these QBs losing:
– Peyton Manning*
– Trevor Siemian
– Paxton Lynch
– Case Keenum
– Joe Flacco
– Drew Lock
– Teddy Bridgewater
