Anderson shined once again running the ball as the Denver Broncos led wire-to-wire in a 29-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Manning passed for a season-low 179 yards on 17-of-34 efficiency, but Anderson was the story in Denvers 11th straight road win against an AFC West foe. The second-year running back out of California rushed for a career-high 168 yards on 32 carries, a week after gashing up Miamis defense for 167 in a win over the Dolphins. Andersons last two games were the two best rushing performances this season. Montee Ball, who started the season as Denvers lead back, had a season-high 67 yards in Week 1 and Ronnie Hillman went for 109 yards on Oct. 23. Demaryius Thomas and Anderson caught TD passes and Connor Barth, who Denver (9-3) signed on Tuesday to replace rookie kicker Brandon McManus, went 5- for-5 on field goals in his debut with the team. McManus was waived after hitting just 3-for-6 over his last five games. Alex Smith threw two touchdowns and an interception for Kansas City (7-5), which lost its second straight game on the heels of a five-game win streak. The Chiefs finished with just 11 first downs and only converted 1-of-9 on third down. The Broncos got everything they wanted on their first drive following a three- and-out from Kansas City to start the game. Anderson carried four straight times for 26 yards to start the series before Manning found Emmanuel Sanders for a 20-yard gain. Two plays later, Manning floated a pass toward the left pylon and Thomas chased it down, opening the scoring with his ninth TD of the season. Denver turned another Chiefs punt into points on its next series. Sanders was tackled hard by Justin Houston behind the line of scrimmage to set up 3rd- and-11 from the Kansas City 15, but the Broncos had the perfect play dialed up. Manning dumped off a quick pass to Anderson out of the backfield, and he beat Houston to the end zone to make it 14-0. Kansas City finished the first quarter with negative-10 yards, the lowest total in the NFL this season. Fjallraven Kanken Big Backpack Ochre. Early in the second, Denver picked up a first down near midfield after lining up in punt formation on 4th-and-7 and snapping directly to David Bruton. Bruton ran to his left for 13 yards. The fake punt led to a short Barth field goal and 17-0 lead. The Chiefs finally picked up a first down eight minutes into the second, with Smith finding Dwayne Bowe for 10 yards. Jamaal Charles then ran for 11 yards on 4th-and-1 before back-to-back completions down the field to tight ends led to a touchdown. Travis Kelce ran a slant for 19 yards to set up Anthony Fasanos 20-yard touchdown. Barth hit again from 24 yards to send the Broncos into halftime with a 20-7 advantage. Cairo Santos and Barth traded field goals in the third, but neither team found the end zone in the stanza. Barth kicked a 33-yarder on the fourth play of the fourth quarter as the lead grew to 26-10. Less than three minutes later, Charles 12-yard touchdown catch capped a brief 7-play, 62-yard trek that gave the Chiefs life. However, the ensuing two-point conversion failed as Smiths throw across his body to Fasano was knocked away. One more Barth field goal, a 37-yarder with 7:33 remaining, put the finishing touches on Denvers win. Game Notes Denver improved to 6-0 against the Chiefs with Manning under center ...
