ReFo: Broncos @ Chiefs, Week 13 |
It’s always a little quirky when the NFL gives us the same matchup in two out of three weeks, but that’s just what happened when the Denver Broncos traveled to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs with AFC supremacy on the line. The Chiefs jumped out to a 21-7 lead, but Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning found his deep-ball groove and torched the Kansas City secondary for 403 yards and five touchdowns through the air.

ReFo: Bengals @ Chargers, Week 13 |
It is games like this the Bengals need to win to be for real by the end of the season. Winning at San Diego in their current guise is no mean feat, but it’s a game a contender needs to be able to come away with.
