December 1st brought the NFL one of it’s biggest regular season matchups of the season, with the 9-2 Kansas City Chiefs hosting the equally as successful high-scoring 9-2 Denver Broncos to decide which team has the edge in the AFC West.
Denver took the first meeting 27-17 behind 323 passing yards from Peyton Manning, and Manning delivered again Sunday. Manning passed for 403 yards and five TDs against the Chiefs, including four touchdowns to wideout Eric Decker:
The four touchdown performance doubled Decker’s TD output on the season. At 10-2 the Broncos now hold sole possession of the AFC’s best record, and the inside track at home field advantage throughout the playoffs, if they can win out.
With the amount of weapons Peyton has at his disposal and if they secure home field advantage, the Broncos in perfect position to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.
