The Denver Broncos were great. It probably was too late.
The Broncos manhandled the Kansas City Chiefs 41-7 Sunday, finally playing like the contender they fancied themselves after an offseason spending spree produced a roster that looked like a fantasy owner's dream.

Jay Cutler threw a career-best four touchdown passes, Selvin Young rushed for a career-high 156 yards on 17 carries and Elvis Dumervil collected three sacks and forced a fumble that led to a touchdown as the Broncos overwhelmed the Chiefs (4-9).

It probably won't matter, however. The Broncos (6-7) remain two games behind San Diego in the AFC West with three to go following the Chargers' come-from-behind win in Tennessee.

The Broncos ignited their biggest blowout in seven seasons with two quick touchdowns by players with plenty of reasons to celebrate.
Brandon Stokely who signed a three-year contract extension Friday, hauled in a 21-yard touchdown pass less than two minutes in. Then Travis Henry who learned Tuesday he had successfully challenged a positive drug test that would have resulted in a yearlong ban from the NFL, punched it in from 1 yard.

    It's ok to be an optimist, but come on fan#1. You need to be realistic. It isn't going to happen!

    Looked who they played though? KC is hardly a contender. CU could have beaten them.

    The Broncos looked great in this game! Too bad we couldn't play like this every week.
