Quick Take: RB Young leads Broncos

It was over when ...
Broncos tight end Daniel Graham caught an 18-yard touchdown pass with 10:44 left in the fourth quarter, giving Denver a 27-11 lead and leaving the Chiefs to attempt a comeback with backup QB Brodie Croyle.

Game ball
Broncos running back Selvin Young made his second start of the season count, rushing for 109 yards and a touchdown. Young continues a tradition of interchangeable running backs in Denver. He got moving early with a 34-yard run on the Broncos' opening drive to set up Jason Elam's first field goal.

Key stat
The Broncos held the Chiefs to 67 rushing yards. Kansas City dropped back to pass 13 times in the first half, compared to 14 running plays. A good balance, but kind of surprising considering that the Broncos ranked last in rush defense coming into the game, allowing more than 160 rushing yards per game.

Chiefs quarterback Damon Huard was knocked out of the game in the third quarter.
