The Denver Broncos keep losing players, but finally found a way to win at home.

Jay Cutler guided the Broncos on a tiebreaking 95-yard touchdown drive early in the fourth quarter and Denver's defense stuffed Kansas City quarterback Tyler Thigpen on fourth-and-goal to rally past the Chiefs 24-17 on Sunday.

The Broncos (8-5) snapped a three-game skid at home and put themselves on the cusp of ending a three-year playoff drought. They lead second-place San Diego by three games in the middling AFC West.

Cutler completed 32 of 40 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns, both of them to Brandon Marshall, including a 6-yarder for the winner early in the fourth quarter.
