Tebow accounts for two TDs as Broncos clip Chiefs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Tim Tebow hit Eric Decker on a 56-yard touchdown pass, one of his two completions in the game, helping the Denver Broncos to a 17-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Denver (4-5) played almost the entire game without leading rushers Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno. McGahee hurt his hamstring and Moreno went down with a knee injury in the first quarter.

It didn't matter against the struggling Chiefs.

Lance Ball ran for 96 yards, and Tebow added 44 yards and one touchdown on the ground, helping the Broncos win for the third time in four games with the former Heisman Trophy winner under center.

Matt Cassel was 13-of-28 passing for 93 yards and one touchdown for Kansas City (4-5), which followed a 31-3 loss to previously winless Miami with another miserable showing at home. Tyler Palko replaced an injured Cassel at quarterback on the Chiefs' last drive, which resulted in a field goal.
