5 things we learned in the Denver Broncos’ win over Kansas City

Here are five things we learned in the Denver Broncos’ win over the Kansas City Chiefs yesterday. 1. The Broncos are undisciplined. During Sunday’s win, the Denver Broncos were called for 11 penalties. Many of those penalties were sloppy and uncalled for. The Chiefs’ 10-minute drive to start the third quarter should have ended a lot sooner. Malik Jackson took a terrible roughing...

Twitter Tuesday: “35” fuels motivation for Denver Broncos
