    Or was it an offensive struggle? It was more of a defensive slugfest for sure. Both teams would combine for a grand total of 372 yards of total offense. With neither team reaching the end zone in the game, the scoring summary would only show field goals obviously. Both teams would swap kicks in the first half leading to a 3-3 tie at halftime. The Broncos would miss a long feild goal just short, but Dexter McCluster would be in the end zone waiting and return it all the way down to the Denver 41. Unfortunately, that drive would end in the red zone on a Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie pick.

    The second half was more of the same, both teams swapping punts, both QBs Alex Smith and Brock Osweiler getting hit on nearly every drop back. Although, each team would only record 2 sacks apiece, both QBs would certainly be feeling the hits from this game in the morning. Each team would also only find moderate success on the ground, but the key was that neither HBs Jamaal Charles or Ahmad Bradshaw would fumble the ball at least.

    Kansas City would add a field goal in the 4th quarter to go up 6-3, but it would come down to the final minute before this game was decided. Denver would get the ensuing kickoff but then turn the ball over on downs after being stopped on a 4th down pass play. The Chiefs would have the ball inside the opponents 30 yard line with under 2 minutes to go, but Ryan (sucks) Succop would miss the easy kick to give the Broncos yet another chance. They would wind up getting into near makeable field goal range, but nick Collins would pull in the game sealing interception off of a pass deflection to put the nail in the coffin.

    Kansas City would get above .500 with a 4-3 record as they next week will face the chargers in simulation, followed by a bye week. Good Game Broncos218
