Chiefs trample Broncos in 45-17 rout

NFL.com wire reports

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Dec. 19, 2004) -- After three straight wins, the Kansas City Chiefs have to be careful not to pout about what might have been.

"What might have been was the 13-3 (record of) last year," said fullback Tony Richardson. "But the thing that matters most is we're starting to come into our own."

Taking advantage of numerous Denver mistakes, the Chiefs (6-8) romped to a 45-17 victory Sunday, knocking the Broncos (8-6) at least temporarily out of a tie with Baltimore for the last AFC wild-card spot.

The Broncos, who have lost three of their last four, committed 100 yards in penalties. They also let Jake Plummer get sacked six times and generally looked nothing like playoff contenders.

"This game was not a fun game," said Plummer, whose two interceptions both led to Kansas City touchdowns. "It was a bad day."

Larry Johnson and Eddie Kennison each scored two touchdowns and Dante Hall returned the opening kickoff 97 yards for another score for the Chiefs, who dropped out of playoff contention with a four-game losing streak in November.

The Chiefs scored on four of their first five possessions en route to their biggest margin of victory in the long series since a 31-point win in 1983.

"It was a Kansas City Chief day," said coach Dick Vermeil. "We had a lot of things go our way."

Kansas City's third and sixth touchdowns came off Dexter McCleon 's interceptions of Plummer, who was fined $5,000 last week for making an obscene gesture to a fan in Denver.
