Kyle Orton threw two touchdown passes and Denver used a punishing running game to manhandle the Kansas City Chiefs 44-13 on Sunday.
Denver had 245 yards rushing to turn the 99th meeting between AFL originals into a laugher. Correll Buckhalter ran for 113 yards and Knowshon Moreno had two touchdown runs to help the Broncos (8-4) stay within reach of San Diego in the AFC West.
The Chiefs (3-9) didn't put up much of a fight on the day they retired Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Thomas' number.
Kansas City gave up 17 plays of 10 yards or more and has allowed 40 points in consecutive games for the first time since 1983. Matt Cassel had a 14.6 quarterback rating before being pulled and the Chiefs finished with 222 yards.
