K.C. sur­prise

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

Kansas City, not noted for a high-pow­ered of­fense, had 243 yards on just 16 plays in the first quar­ter Sun­day night in rac­ing out to a 21-7 lead. A look at the longer gains. 80— Alex Smith throws pass to right sideline to tight end Travis Kelce, who gets ter­rific block­ing and sprints 80 yards for a touch­down and a 21-7 lead. 70— Re­ceiver Tyreek Hill lines up in the back­field and runs around left end 70 yards for the Chiefs’ se­cond touch­down. Hill ini­tially runs to the mid­dle of the line, then loops back to sideline. 28— Hill zips around right end for a big gain to set

the tone on K.C.’s open­ing drive. 18— Spencer Ware gouges the mid­dle of the Bron­cos’ de­fense. 14— Smith flips a pass over the mid­dle to Kelce for a

first down on the Chiefs’ first drive. 10— Smith rolls left and runs un­touched into the end zone to cap K.C.’s first drive en route to a 7-0 lead.
