Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs First Half Analysis
The Denver Broncos trail the Kansas City Chiefs 17-3 going into the half. I take a look at some key moments and give my analysis of the first half.
For the third straight game, the Denver Broncos have looked completely lost. At least this time around, the team scored some points. The game did not start off well for Jamaal Charles. As the Broncos were moving the ball, Marcus Peters stripped him and returned it for the first score of the game.
A complete deer in the headlights look from Darian Stewart allowed Travis Kelce to get behind him and score a touchdown. At that point, it would be a 14-0 lead for the Chiefs. And Trevor Siemian, at the time, did not help out the Broncos case.
On the first play after the Kelce touchdown, Trevor Siemian threw a pass intended for Jeff Heuerman. However, he threw it right to Marcus Peters, who was covering Heuerman. It was an abysmal throw.
However, the Broncos defense made sure that no points would come from it as Darian Stewart intercepted a Tyreek Hill pass on a trick play in the end zone.
Brandon McManus was able to add a field goal to put the Denver Broncos on the board. On the next drive, an ill-advised play by Siemian gave the Broncos offense their third turnover in the first half.

This has not looked good. This seems like another game that the Broncos could easily be in if not for the turnovers and poor play. This team needs a spark. The only thing is, what is going to create that spark? I know what most of you are thinking. And I can’t say that I would blame you all for thinking that way.
The Kansas City Chiefs will get the football to start the second half. Hopefully the Broncos find that spark soon or this could get ugly once again.
