Broncos Top Chiefs For Second Straight Win

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — When Denver signed Connor Barth to take over their kicking duties this week, the veteran asked to wear No. 1 in honor of longtime Broncos kicker Jason Elam.

Seems only fitting in retrospect.

Barth returned from a lengthy absence from the NFL to connect on all five of his field-goal attempts Sunday night, matching Elam’s franchise game record and lifting the Broncos to a 29-16 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

“It’s crazy,” said Barth, who missed all of last year after tearing his Achilles tendon in a charity basketball game. “My agent and I always talk about just one kick at a time, so that’s what I try to do every time and it worked out tonight.”

Peyton Manning threw touchdown passes to Demaryius Thomas and C.J. Anderson, who also ran for 168 yards, as Denver (9-3) remained a game up on San Diego in the bunched-up AFC West.

The Chiefs (7-5) dropped two games back with their sixth straight loss to the Broncos.
