The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Denver Broncos, 30-6, in front of a packed house at Empower Field at Mile High on Thursday night to snap their two-game losing streak and move back into the win column for the fifth time this season.
The Chiefs lost quarterback Patrick Mahomes to a knee injury early in the second quarter, but veteran quarterback Matt Moore and a tenacious effort by the defense helped Kansas City secure an eighth-straight victory over the rival Broncos.
Moore completed 10-of-19 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown in relief of Mahomes, tossing a 57-yard scoring strike to wide receiver Tyreek Hill midway through the third quarter. It marked the seventeenth touchdown of Hill’s career that covered 50+ yards in just 50 games as a professional.
The Chiefs return to Arrowhead Stadium next weekend to take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football.
