2014 Game-by-Game: Week 2

Posted Jun 20, 2014

The look-ahead to the 2014 season continues with a first glance at the Kansas City Chiefs, who visit in Week 2.

  • WHEN: Sunday, Sep. 14; 2:25 p.m. MDT.
  • WHERE: Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
  • TV: CBS.
  • SERIES RECORD: Chiefs lead, 56-51 (Broncos lead 1-0 in the postseason).
  • JOHN FOX'S RECORD: 7-1.
  • PEYTON MANNING'S RECORD: 9-1 (2-0 in the postseason).
  • SERIES STREAK: The Broncos have won 11 of their last 13 home games against the Chiefs since moving from Mile High Stadium in 2001.
  • LAST TIME IN DENVER: Broncos 27, Chiefs 17; Nov. 17, 2013. The Chiefs roared into Denver as the last undefeated team in the league, but saw their bid for perfection end in a game that was flexed into prime time because of the teams' combined 17-1 record heading into the contest. Denver burst to a 10-0 lead, and from that point forward, the Chiefs never ran a play on which they could have taken the lead, although they narrowed the gap to three and seven points in the second quarter. Kansas City's defense forced three consecutive Broncos punts in the third quarter, but Denver's defense stiffened, maintaining a lead by forcing two three-and-outs and another possession that netted just one first down. That bought time for the offense to find its form, and when Montee Ball capped a 65-yard drive with an 8-yard touchdown run, the Broncos had breathing room and comfortably came home. The Broncos moved into a tie for first place in the AFC West with the win; two weeks later, they would break the deadlock with a win in the return match at Arrowhead Stadium.


NOTING THE GAME:

  • Peyton Manning has never lost a home game to the Chiefs (7-0, including a wild-card playoff win on Jan. 6, 2007).
  • In the series, no team has ever lost when its starting quarterback has a rating above 116.0. (Broncos 7-0; Chiefs 11-0.) Manning's 144.8 rating at home against the Chiefs in Week 17 of the 2012 season is the highest for a Denver passer in the series.
  • Since the start of the 2010 calendar year, the Broncos have allowed 18 100-yard rushing games, and Kansas City's Jamaal Charles is responsible for three of them: on Jan. 3, 2010 (259 yards), Dec. 5, 2010 (116 yards) and Nov. 25, 2012 (107 yards). But since Dec. 23, 2012, the Broncos are one of just two teams to hold Charles below 100 yards from scrimmage -- and they have done it twice, limiting him to 67 and 72 yards in the two games Kansas City has played at Denver in that span. Since Week 16 of 2012, Charles has averaged 86.3 yards from scrimmage and 4.80 yards per touch against the Broncos, and 144.1 yards from scrimmage and 5.50 yards per touch against everyone else.
  • Denver and Kansas City have split the season series eight of the last 11 years. In the other three, the Broncos swept the series, including each of the last two seasons.
  • The Broncos and Chiefs haven't played a September game in Denver since 2006, a 9-6 Denver win in overtime. That marked the third consecutive year in which they played a September game in Denver. The Broncos are 7-2 all-time at home against the Chiefs in September, and 8-2 at home against the Chiefs before October, which includes the 19-3 win over the Chiefs on Aug. 31, 1997.
  • With this being the Broncos' second home game of the regular season, the 2014 campaign will be just the second one since 1999 in which the Broncos began with back-to-back home games. They also opened with a two-game homestand in 2011, splitting against the Raiders and Bengals.
  • John Fox-led teams went 0-4 in the regular season against Andy Reid-coached teams while the two men were in Carolina and Philadelphia, respectively, but Fox's side swept the series with their new teams in 2013. Fox also has a win in the most important game between the two coaches, a 14-3 NFC Championship triumph on Jan. 18, 2004. Current Broncos coaching intern Ricky Manning Jr. was the star of the Panthers' win, intercepting three passes to send Carolina to its only Super Bowl appearance.
