Trevor Siemian intercepted three times as Chiefs earn 29-19 win over Broncos

AP

The Denver Broncos have a quarterback problem.

Trevor Siemian was intercepted three times by the Chiefs on Monday night as Kansas City earned a 29-19 victory to improve to 6-2 on the season. Siemian has now thrown eight interceptions with just three touchdowns passes over Denver’s last five games. The Broncos are 1-4 in those games. He finished with 198 yards on 19 of 36 passing with one touchdown.

The Chiefs could have made the game even more lopsided if not for mistakes of their own. A trick play went awry as Tyreek Hill was intercepted on a pass by safety Darian Stewart. Harrison Butker also kicked five field goals on the night as Kansas City failed to convert two red zone drives into touchdowns.

But it was still a comfortable victory for the Chiefs, who keep pace with the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers at the top of the AFC standings.

Marcus Peters returned a Jamaal Charles fumble 45 yards for a touchdown to give the Chiefs a 7-0 lead. Alex Smith would connect with Travis Kelce on a 29-yard touchdown pass to extend the lead to 14-0 in the first quarter. Butker and Brandon McManus traded field goals before Devontae Booker scored on a 6-yard run for Denver’s first touchdown of the night to close the gap to 20-13 last in the third quarter.

Three more Butker field goals gave the Chiefs a comfortable cushion the rest of the way. Siemian’s 11-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Derby just trimmed the final deficit.

Alex Smith completed 14 of 31 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown for Kansas City. Kareem Hunt was held under 100 yards of total offense for the first time in eight games this season for the Chiefs.

Peters, Ron Parker and Kenneth Acker each came up with an interception of Siemian.

  1. Chiefs left points out there, but a win against one of the best defenses in the league with a suspect defense of your own is a good win. This was definitely an old Andy Reid game, stupid red zone plays, little to no halftime adjustment, poor clock management. Can’t do that against a good offense like Dallas, with or without Elliot.

  2. That was an ugly win for my Chiefs but well deserved. I had to keep reminding myself that Denver had the best defense in the NFL and they showed it tonight. Made the Chiefs fight for every down and point.

  3. Dear NFL,

    Will trade Trevor Siemian and Vance Joseph for a ham sandwich. Straight up.

    Sincerely,

    The Denver Broncos

  4. Sloppy win, KC needs to get back on track. I’ll chalk the Denver and Oak games as the usual division close game rivalries, but neither the offense nor defense has looked very good.

  5. What a disgrace- Broncos D gives up 16 points. 166 yds rushing and 5+ a carry.

    No more blaming anyone other than Siemian- he was flat out god-awful and is the main reason this team is 3-5. Give Osweiler a shot to see if the season can be saved and if not all three of the mutts we have as QBs have to kicked to the curb. There is too much talent on this team to have it be ruined by horrible QB play, and that falls squarely on Elway

  6. Only a matter of time before talib and Harris start calling it as. Joseph needs to learn when to yank a guy due to poor play. He left Mckenzie in after a lost fumble and the next play he is in on, he holds the ball like a loaf of bread. Stupid coaching.

    Oh, and simian was due for a lot of picks. Last year he had more interceptable throws than any quarterback and simply got lucky when defenders dropped them. He is a turnover machine. Every time he throws it looks bad! His stats come in garbage time.

  7. John Elway has been great at building a defense. He needs to change things or get help when it comes to drafting, free agency on the offensive side.

    The QB play has been poor but has looked serviceable when the oline has given him time. The problem being that the oline is garbage in pass protection.

  8. I hate when Alex plays like Alex. No one is forgetting why we drafted a QB in the 1st. We need elite play from the position, because this defense is a mess on the scale of the faiders.

  9. The Broncos actually thought they could win with anyone at QB. Who did they think they were? The Patriots? From winning a SB to a dumpster fire in 2 years. What a mess.

  10. From a Super Bowl Champion to the laughing-stock of prime time! It all started when a team listening to how good they were got boat-raced on home turf via an 0-5 team and continues. Trevor is punch-drunk and has been. The o-line may be worse than the patchwork orange that won a title. VJ may be more loyal to #13 than Kubes was. Time to let somebody else run for their life. Elway should know better than to spend top dollar on WRs when he won nothing without a top-flight road grading OL!

  11. I no longer have any trust or faith in Siemian after this game. He was just terrible. He made so many inexcusable poor decisions.
    D was good, offense was decent, QB was terrible.

    Congrats to the Chiefs, you guys played a good game.

    and you can keep the sandwich… we’ll throw in an ice cold adult beverage of your choice…PLEASE….

  13. A poor performance by Kansas City. A Denver team shot itself in the foot all night long, no credit due anything the Chiefs were doing, yet was still in the game, throttling KC’s offense, an indictment yet another ‘this is our year’ delusion ours here in KC. When you are handed every break in the book, yet can’t even dispense with a team intent on giving the game away, are a pretender & not a contender.

    Of note: ‘he’s the best RB in the NFL’ hooey re: #27 affirmed yet again. ‘kareemed’ all night 46 yards on 22 carries. Aft 502 yards 6 tds and 7.4 ypc his first four games just 261 yards 0 tds and 3.4 ypc his last four. As an Chiefs fan, have seen the ‘this is our year’ script fall apart nigh on half a century now & appears 2017 will be no different.

  14. You have to feel for Siemian, he is who he is and he was miscast by Elway.

    Regarding Shane Ray, he was running around aimlessly last night. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

    =======================
    except you DONT have the best defense in the NFL – and those ugly Chiefs hung 22 points on them- so… theres that!

    btw – what did miller end up with? 1 tackle and zero sacks? LOL

  16. Those interceptions…wow! It’s not like they were tipped balls or anything. Siemian threw right to the defender. If he is the best QB on the roster everyone needs to be fired. A great defense is being wasted.
    Chiefs better figure out how to stop the run or their playoff run will be short.

    So you partially blame the Defense then say no one can be blamed but the QB… Ahhh the football knowledge of the Donkey fan is mind blowing.
