First Quarter --

Broncos First Drive --

--Andre Hall returns the opening kickoff to the 23. I don't care about the playoffs, or the division. I want to see a solid 60 minutes of football from all 3 facets....
--Selvin Young to starting RB. Is anyone else questioning the future of Travis Henry in Denver?
--Like I was saying....Young goes for 50 over the left side. Sweet move down-field as well!
--Just like that the Broncos are on the scoreboard. The recently extended BRandon Stokley with the reception and the Broncos take the early lead. TOUCHDOWN BRONCOS!! BRONCOS 7 - Chiefs 0

Chiefs First Drive --

--Nearly a disaster, but the Chiefs recover the fumble and take over at the 26 yard-line...
--Champ Bailey with an awesome tackle on the WR screen. Denver playing with alot more energy...
--Kolby Smith the starting RB, and the Chiefs are expecting him to have a big day...
--Maybe, but he won;t pick up a yard on third and 1. The Chiefs go three and out...

Broncos Second Drive --

--Damn it looks cold in Denver today...
--Broncos take over at the 16...
--A 3rd and five upcoming after the Selvin Young run. Third down conversions are going to be key today....
--A Daniel Graham sighting. A great throw, a great catch, a better run by Graham and a first down for the Broncos...
--17 more yards for Selvin Young, and he is already up to 78 yards rushing...
--Even Travis Henry is running hard...
--Brandon Marshall gets in on the act and has the Broncos inside the 10. The Broncos are playing better today than at any point this season...
--FIRST AND GOAL at the 6 -- Henry gets four...
--SECOND AND GOAL at the 2 -- Henry up the middle for a BRONCOS TOUCHDOWN!!! Two offensive TD's in the first 8 minutes...BRONCOS 14 - Chiefs 0

Chiefs Second Drive --

--How nice this is. Broncos need to keep their foot on the gas. Don't let up...
--The Chiefs start form the 27, but we'll back it up 5 after the penalty...
--The Chiefs continue to kick themselves in the foot with penalties...
--The Chiefs forced to punt, and the word from Tennessee -- Chargers 23 - Tennessee 17

Broncos Third Drive --

--Broncos go deep, but nothing doing. Stokley wants a penalty but won't get it...
--Young runs for 9 more and is on his way to 100 yards in the first quarter...
--Third and one, and Young comes up short. Instead of Henry, a much more powerful back, it's Young and the results tell the tale...

Chiefs Third Drive --

--The Chiefs get 3 yards on first down. The Broncos defense needs to maintain their intensity....
--Not much pressure, but the tipped pass shows the D-Line is being active...
--Another 3 and out for the Broncos defense, who is playing fast...

Broncos Fourth Drive --

--First and 10 at the Broncos' 25 yard line.
--Chiefs now realize there is a football game, stuffing Young for no gain..
--Brandon Marshall looked like he was going to throw it, but the Chiefs were ready...
--Now the Broncos go three and out, and another punt upcoming..

--A Todd Sauerbrun punt ends the first quarter....

END OF FIRST QUARTER -- BRONCOS 14 - CHIEFS 0
