Chiefs Barely Beat Broncos Off OT Gamble By Coach Kubiak

Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian looked brilliant last night as he was able to throw for 368 yards and hit 3 different Broncos wide receivers for touchdowns.

They found themselves up 8 with just 3 minutes left in the game. Alex Smith and the Chiefs were able to mount a 72 yard drive to get to the 3 yard line with just 15 seconds left. Smith got the ball to wide receiver Tyreek Hill but the refs called him shy of the endzone.

With time running out on the clock and no timeouts, the Chiefs scrambled to set up and spike the ball. With just 1 second left on the clock, the refs decided to review the previous play and after reviewing, they called the touchdown.

Now down 2, the Chiefs had to go for two and was able to convert, tying the game at 24-24.

In overtime, it was a nail biter. Both teams were able to score a field goal and with just over a minute left on the clock, the Broncos found themselves with a tough decision. Either attempt a 62-yard field goal for the win, or punt it away and accept that best case scenario, you tie.

Denver coach, Gary Kubiak, chose the former. McManus, who was perfect on the day, missed, giving the Chiefs excellent field positioning to win the game. They only had to gain 10 yards to be in field goal range for Cairo Santos. They gained 32 yards, setting up Santos for an easy 34 yard field goal for the win.
