The Denver Broncos square off against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night at Arrowhead Stadium. This marks the first time since September 28th, 2008 that the Broncos played the Chiefs at Arrowhead this early in the season.

Most Broncos games at Arrowhead in recent history has taken place in the later part of the season, when playoff implications most likely were in play. The Broncos have not fared well on the road against the Chiefs, as they currently hold a 19-36 record dating back to when the Chiefs were the Dallas Texans.

In fact, the Broncos lost the first 14 games on the road against their AFC West rivals. They would not record the first road victory over Kansas City until 1974, and even that game ended in a close 17-14 win.

#5- Peyton Manning Breaks Chiefs Hearts

In his first season with the Denver Broncos, Peyton Manning took some time to get used to a new team. However, he was able to get it back together as the Broncos began an 11 game winning streak in 2012. One of the victims of this winning streak was the Kansas City Chiefs.

Down 9-7 in the third quarter, Peyton Manning led a drive that ultimately ended with a 30 yard touchdown strike to Demaryius Thomas. The go-ahead touchdown put the Broncos ahead for good as they went on to win the game 17-9. It marked the first time during the 11 game winning streak that the Broncos failed to score 30 or more points in a game.

Kansas City also managed to obtain 148 yards on the ground, in which 107 of them belonged to Jamaal Charles. But the star running back for the Chiefs did not hit paydirt. In fact, the Broncos defense kept them out of the end zone completely.
