Imperfect Broncos fall to second place in AFC West

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Super Bowl shoo-ins woke up Monday as a second-place team.

And all those little flaws and imperfections that Peyton Manning glossed over with a steady stream of points -- well, those couldn't be glossed over this week.

Manning and the Denver Broncos returned home with their first regular-season loss in 378 days, which left them looking up at Kansas City in the AFC West standings and glowering over a game film that exposed problems in virtually every phase of their game.

To name a few: An offensive line that can't absorb any more injuries; a defense that needed more than Von Miller's return to repair its problems; turnovers; penalties; play calling.
