Denver Broncos: 3 Reactions from the Kansas City Loss

Share

The crowd at Broncos Stadium at Mile High was deafening. But this was a three-point game: stop the Chiefs on the next play (a hypothetical third-and-12) and Kansas City is kicking a field goal.

The Chiefs, meanwhile, took a sixth straight win over their division rivals and continued their flawless start to the season (4-0) to remain the American Football Conference's only unbeaten team.

But the play everyone was talking was his 6-yard strike to Tyreek Hill with his left hand while getting pulled down by Von Miller. It was the first time since 2004 that the team dropped a home game in which it led by double digits in the fourth quarter.

Mahomes' left-handed toss occurred with about 3:15 remaining in the fourth quarter and was all the buzz on social media.

"Just didn't get it done. I disagree. I disagree", Joseph said.

Then, there was the audacious left-handed throw while Von Miller was bearing down on him during the go-ahead drive, which Kareem Hunt capped with a touchdown run in the final minutes to give the Chiefs a dramatic 27-23 victory. "The replay showed that", Marshall said. Last night's MNF is also up 8% from the comparable game previous year on October 2, 2017, when the also then still-unbeaten Chiefs took down Washington 29-20 at Arrowhead Stadium.

Broncos cornerback Chris Harris said he pleaded with the refs to overturn the situation on replay, but was told it's not reviewable. Pat Mahomes scrambled for a touchdown for the Chiefs, while rookie running back Royce Freeman found the end zone for the Broncos.

With the ball at Kansas City's 28-yard line and only 22 seconds to go, Keenum failed to hit a wide-open Demaryius Thomas, who beat his defender with a sideline route. "But I didn't know he threw it with his left hand. It's a tough one, it stings". They got away with one.

Mahomes' ability to extend plays while constantly looking downfield may have been the biggest reason the Chiefs managed to rally late. And he said he looked up and it was zero and the ball was gone.

"He's got to perform better", Joseph said. "We pushed him out of the pocket, we lost contain a couple times and he stepped out of a couple sacks".

But Denver's defense allowed two consecutive long touchdown drives, which combined for 20 plays and 135 yards, leaving Case Keenum's offense with a four-point deficit and 1:39 on the clock.
