ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Peyton Manning won’t suit up against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Broncos coach Gary Kubiak is going with backup Brock Osweiler as he tries to get his 39-year-old quarterback healthy. “I’m disappointed that I’m injured,” a somber Manning said at his locker. “I’m disappointed in the game yesterday.

Chiefs pick off Mannning, Broncos at Mile High

For years what had been an impossible task for the Kansas City Chiefs was suddenly doable. On Sunday afternoon they went to Sports Authority Field in Denver and not only beat the division leading Broncos 29-13, but in doing so dominated quarterback Peyton Manning who threw four interceptions and was eventually benched. It was a single victory on one day in the 2015 NFL season. No trophy was awarded and there was not a ticket punched for the AFC playoffs. But the outcome was momentous for a Chiefs team that has been dwarfed for decades in the AFC West by the Broncos. read more

Chiefs aim to end Manning's streak in trip to Denver

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs have spent a decade trying to beat Peyton Manning. More than a decade, in fact. The Broncos quarterback has won 10 straight against the Chiefs, dating to his days running the offense in Indianapolis. The most recent of them, two months ago, featured a frantic fourth-quarter comeback and two touchdowns in the final minute to steal a victory at Arrowhead Stadium. “I think this one is pretty unique,” Manning said, shortly after the Broncos returned a fumble by Jamaal Charles for the go-ahead touchdown in that 34-27 victory. read more

Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib to miss game with Kansas City Chiefs after NFL upholds suspension

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos will face the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend with a depleted defense. The Broncos (7-1) still sport the league’s top defense after being knocked from the ranks of the unbeaten Sunday at Indianapolis. But they lost Pro Bowl linebacker DeMarcus Ware to a recurrent back injury and Pro Bowl cornerback Aqib Talib to a one-game suspension for poking a player in the eye. Add those to first-round draft pick Shane Ray’s absence with a knee injury and suddenly, Denver’s defense isn’t so deep. read more

Chiefs, Andy Reid hoping for 'four quarters of a good game' against Broncos

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It has been nearly two months since the Kansas City Chiefs fumbled away a victory against the Denver Broncos, sending their season spiraling perilously out of control. Chiefs coach Andy Reid insists that September defeat remains firmly in the past. “They got us. I said that after the game,” Reid said Monday as the Chiefs, now on a modest two-game win streak, returned to work after a week off. “They won the game. That’s all that counts. You move on and you get ready for this game.” read more

If upheld on appeal, Denver’s star cornerback will miss the Denver Broncos’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend. He’ll also miss out on a $323,529 paycheck on his $5.5 million base salary. “I sat with Aqib on the plane coming home last night, had a long talk with him,” coach Gary Kubiak said Monday. “He’s wrong. He needs to stay out of the situation. It hurt the team.” read more
