(AP Photo/Charlie Riedel) No matter how ugly it may have looked, the Denver Broncos walked away from Arrowhead Stadium with another win on Sunday, and that’s nothing to scoff at. The Broncos stayed perfect in division play this season with a 17-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs (1-10) today, improving their record to 8-3 on the season.  Next week, the team will return home to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-5), looking for their seventh consecutive win of the season. Quarterback Peyton Manning was far from perfect on Sunday, going 22-of-37 for 285 yards and 2 touchdowns with 1 interception, but he was able to do enough to help his team come out on top. Manning benefited from the offense’s ability to stay balanced, as fourth-year running back Knowshon Moreno stepped in the place of injured starter Willis McGahee and gained 111 yards from scrimmage on 24 touches against Kansas City. On the defensive side of the ball, the Broncos held the Chiefs’ struggling offense to a mere three field goals.  Second-year outside linebacker Von Miller also notched a sack, increasing his season total to 14. The Broncos offense proved on Sunday afternoon that they can stay balanced even without McGahee, with a 37-to-24 run-to-pass ratio on the afternoon.  Expect Moreno to keep his starting job heading into Week 13—he has earned it. What were your thoughts on the game?  Do you have concerns about this team moving forward?  Or are you confident that they have the pieces to make a run deep into the postseason?  Dish out your thoughts in the comments below!
