The Chiefs couldn’t muster up much offense and the defense couldn’t stop rookie wide receiver Brandon Marshall as the Broncos eliminated the Chiefs from the playoff contention with a 41-7 win.
The Chiefs managed just 129 yards of total offense as Marshall alone hauled in 10 passes for 115 yards and two touchdowns. Head coach Herm Edwards called it the team’s worse performance of the season.
Not much in the running game for the Chiefs as Kolby Smith finished with 12 yards on 13 carries. Once the Chiefs gave up two touchdowns on the Broncos first two possessions, it made it difficult for a struggling offense to get going when they’ve struggled all year.
Chiefs have three games left and play their last game at home next week, when they host Tennessee.
