Broncos faced with fumbling problem

By  | 

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos lead the league in an exhaustive list of offensive categories: Points, yards, passing, first downs, third down efficiency.

Oh, and fumbles.

Denver's four turnovers, which included three lost fumbles, led to 17 New England points last Sunday in a 34-31 overtime loss.

Heading into Sunday's game at Kansas City, Denver has fumbled a league-leading 26 times and lost 16. That's six more fumbles and four more lost than the next-worst teams on the list.

Leading the way: Peyton Manning, who has fumbled 10 times and lost six. All that is part of Denver's minus-3 turnover ratio, second-worst among the 11 teams who own or share the lead in their respective divisions.
