THE MATCH-UP

THE SERIES

Sunday’s regular season finale between Kansas City and Denver will mark the 100th meeting between these two original AFL rivals. The Chiefs will be seeking their 54th victory in this 50-year-old duel with Denver, which would match their highest win tally against any franchise - Oakland (54). These two franchises will meet in a regular season finale for the first time since ’92 and will do so in Denver for the initial time since ’68. Kansas City is 5-0 all-time against the Broncos in the last game of the regular season, but hasn’t played such a contest in Colorado since registering a 30-7 win at Mile High Stadium (12/14/68). Dating back to 2003, Denver’s final home game of the season has typically been filled with drama with three of those six games going to OT, including a loss vs. SF (12/31/06) that helped send KC to the playoffs. The Chiefs will be attempting to register at least two division wins for the 31st consecutive season. KC is coming off a narrow 17-10 loss at Cincinnati (12/27). The Broncos are in the midst of the AFC Wild Card hunt despite a 30-27 loss at Philadelphia (12/27). Denver is in a five-team logjam at 8-7. While there are multiple postseason scenarios, a win against KC and two other contests ending favorably for Denver is the best-case scenario for the Broncos. Baltimore and the N.Y. Jets can claim the two AFC Wild Card spots with wins on Sunday. For just the seventh time in franchise history, Kansas City will play a regular season contest in January. The Chiefs are 3-3 in such games, including a 37-7 win vs. Cincinnati (1/1/06) in their most recent January game. The Broncos are 1-4 all-time in regular season games played in January. RB Jamaal Charles owns three straight 100-yard rushing games and needs 139 yards to become the ninth player in franchise history to reach the 1,000yard plateau. In games played on or after November 15th, only Titans RB Chris Johnson (913) owns more rushing yards than Charles (709), while only Johnson (1,234) and Ravens RB Ray Rice (943) have more yards from scrimmage than Charles (864). P Dustin Colquitt has 39 punts inside the 20, just three shy of the NFL single-season record of 42 set by 49ers P Andy Lee in 2007. Arizona P Ben Graham also has 39 punts inside the 20 in 2009.

Kansas City holds a 53-46-0 (.535) all-time advantage over Denver in the 99 previous meetings between the two clubs (98 regular season, one postseason). The 53 Chiefs wins against the Broncos are the club’s second highest win total against any individual opponent except for AFC West foe Oakland (54). Denver won a 44-13 decision earlier this year at Arrowhead (12/6) and is seeking its first sweep of the Chiefs since 2007. Kansas City’s most recent season sweep of Denver came in 2000. The Broncos have won four of the last five contests in this series. Kansas City’s last win against Denver was a 33-19 victory at Arrowhead (9/28/08). The Broncos haven’t won three straight regular season games vs. Kansas City since ’91-92.

Kansas City is still seeking its initial victory at INVESCO Field and is attempting to end an eight-game losing skid at Denver. The Chiefs longest losing stretch at Denver was an 11-game streak from ’83-93. The Broncos claimed a 24-17 decision in the most recent contest between the two clubs at INVESCO Field (12/7/08). The Chiefs last road victory against the Broncos came in 2000 when Gunther Cunningham was serving as the Chiefs head coach. Kansas City posted a 23-22 victory (9/24/00) as the Chiefs overcame an eight-point fourthquarter deficit to claim the win. In total, the Broncos have won 11 of the last 15 regular season meetings between these two clubs in Denver. The Broncos produced a 14-10 victory in the only postseason meeting between the two teams, a ’97 AFC Divisional Playoff Game at Arrowhead (1/4/98).

THE LAST TIME Broncos 44, Chiefs 13 December 6, 2009 • Arrowhead Stadium • 68,912 DENVER. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7 KANSAS CITY . . . . . . . . . . . . . 0 The Chiefs trailed by a narrow 14-6 margin at halftime, but were outscored 20-0 in the third quarter as Denver capitalized on three Kansas City turnovers and a failed fake punt en route to a 44-13 victory at Arrowhead. On a day when the Chiefs honored the memory of LB Derrick Thomas and retired his #58, LB Tamba Hali registered a pair of sack and strips, finishing the game with a career-best 3.0 sacks. After Denver moved the ball quickly downfield on the game’s opening possession, LB Demorrio Williams tipped a QB Kyle Orton pass that S Mike Brown promptly picked off in the end zone. The Chiefs offense stalled giving Denver the ball back. The Broncos quickly atoned for their openingdrive turnover, and on second and goal from the seven, a throwback screen from Orton to TE Daniel Graham capped an eight-play, 63-yard drive, that put the Broncos up 7-0 with 7:20 left in the first quarter. The Chiefs responded by going on a 20-play scoring march that featured six Kansas City first downs, the club’s longest scoring drive in terms of plays since ’88. The Chiefs were forced to settle for a 22-yard K Ryan Succop FG to make the count 7-3. Both clubs traded punts before Denver drove 80 yards to the end zone capped by RB Knowshon Moreno’s two-yard TD run, putting Denver up 14-3 with 7:03 left in the first half. After the teams traded punts, Hali registered sacks on back-to-back plays, the second of which resulted in a fumble that was recovered by DE Glenn Dorsey at midfield. A 47yard Succop field goal made the count 14-6 at intermission. Kansas City appeared to line up in punt formation at its own 28-yard line on its opening possession of the second half, but QB Brodie Croyle lined up in the shotgun and attempted a pass to LS Thomas Gafford on fourth down. The ball was batted down, giving Denver the ball at the Kansas City 27-yard line. The Chiefs defense would limit the Broncos to a 44-yard K Matt Prater FG, making the count 17-7. Things quickly went downhill from there. CB Andre Goodman picked off a QB Matt Cassel pass on Kansas City’s next possession, returning the ball to the Chiefs 21-yard line. That turnover set up a seven-yard TD pass to WR Brandon Marshall, making the score 24-6 with 10:31 left in the third quarter. S Renaldo Hill picked off Cassel on the Chiefs next drive, setting up the Broncos again in Kansas City territory at the 42yard line, but the Chiefs again held Denver to another Prater FG, this time from 38 yards out, giving Denver a 27-6 lead with 5:53 left in the third period. After trading punts, Denver LB Mario Haggan forced a RB Jamaal Charles fumble that was scooped up by Goodman, who returned the ball for a 30-yard TD, giving Denver a 34-6 advantage. After the Chiefs punted and pinned the Denver offense at its own fouryard line, Hali recorded his third sack of the game and forced his second fumble of the day, knocking the ball out of Orton’s hands. Again, Dorsey recovered the ball, and the Chiefs were in business at the Denver three-yard line. Croyle entered the contest for Kansas City, and a four-yard TD run by Charles would make the count 34-13 with 14:57 left in the game. But as they did all day, the Broncos had an answer, rattling off 10 more points on an 18-yard Moreno TD run and a Prater field goal to cap a 44-13 victory. GAME NOTES • LB Tamba Hali registered a career-high 3.0 sacks. His 15 career forced fumbles are the third-highest total in Chiefs annals. Only LB Derrick Thomas (45) and DE Neil Smith (29) have more.

THE LAST GAME Bengals 17, Chiefs 10 December 27, 2009 • Paul Brown Stadium • 64,333 KANSAS CITY . . . . . . . . . . . . . 0 CINCINNATI . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 0 The Chiefs put on one of their best defensive performances of the season, holding the explosive Bengals to just 17 points and 274 total yards, but Cincinnati was able to secure the AFC North title with a 17-10 victory at Paul Brown Stadium. With the score tied at 10-10, the Bengals offense orchestrated a 14-play, 98-yard drive that culminated with a six-yard TD pass to WR Chad Ochocinco to take a 17-10 lead with 2:03 remaining. CB Leon Hall essentially sealed the victory when he intercepted QB Matt Cassel with 1:13 left in the contest. S Jon McGraw registered the Chiefs biggest defensive play of the day when he intercepted a QB Carson Palmer pass. However, the Bengals responded with an INT of their own when S Chinedum Ndukwe picked off a Cassel pass intended for WR Dwayne Bowe. Chiefs DE Wallace Gilberry dropped Palmer for a nine-yard sack on third and 11, forcing another Bengals punt. The Chiefs were forced to punt on their ensuing possession, but LS Thomas Gafford’s snap sailed over P Dustin Colquitt’s head, setting Cincinnati up with first and goal at KC’s seven-yard line. The Bengals appeared to score when Ochocinco caught a ball in the end zone, but a replay review ruled that the Bengals receiver had stepped out of bounds, resulting in an illegal touching penalty. The Chiefs defense held, forcing a 29-yard K Shayne Graham FG to give Cincinnati a 3-0 lead with 1:38 left in the second quarter. Cassel and the Kansas City offense responded by moving the ball efficiently in the two-minute offense. A 15-yard completion to RB Jamaal Charles and a 13yard strike to WR Bobby Wade kept the drive moving, getting the Chiefs to the Bengals 21-yard line. K Ryan Succop’s 22nd made FG of the season, a 30-yard effort, tied the game at 3-3 with five seconds remaining in the opening half. Cincinnati received the second-half kickoff and RB Cedric Benson rattled off a 32-yard run to open the quarter. That play would jumpstart a 10-play, 77-yard TD drive that was capped by a 10-yard TD pass from Palmer to WR Laveranues Coles, giving the Bengals a 10-3 lead with 9:10 left in the third quarter. After Cincinnati’s ensuing drive stalled, TE Jake O’Connell deflected P Kevin Huber’s punt, giving the Chiefs possession at the Cincinnati 49-yard line. Cassel then connected with WR Chris Chambers for nine yards. A 13-yard run by Charles, who registered his third consecutive 100-yard game with 102 yards, set the Chiefs up at the Cincinnati 20-yard line. On third down, Cassel hit a leaping RB Tim Castille between three Bengals defenders to register his first NFL touchdown. That score knotted the contest at 1010 with 14:52 left to play. After the two clubs exchanged punts again, the Chiefs pinned the Bengals deep in their own territory when WR Quinten Lawrence downed the ball at the Cincinnati two-yard line. Cincinnati drove 98 yards on 14 plays capping the drive with a six-yard TD pass from Palmer to Ochocinco to put the Bengals up 17-10 with 2:03 left to play in the game, as the drive chewed 7:18 off the clock. The Chiefs got the ball back with an opportunity to match the Bengals score, but a deep pass intended for Chambers was intercepted by Hall, effectively sealing the 17-10 win and the division title for the Bengals. GAME NOTES • K Ryan Succop hit his 22nd FG of the season, surpassing Hall of Fame K Jan Stenerud (21) for the most made FGs by a rookie in Chiefs history.
