Broncos Vs. Chiefs Halftime Update: Zero Passing Yards Gives Denver 10-0 Lead

You read that title right, the Denver Broncos have thrown the ball one time. Notice that it didn't read completion, because Tim Tebow's four pass attempts went without a home. However, 28 rushing attempts for 169 rushing yards have put the Broncos ahead of the Chiefs 10-0 at halftime.

Tebow scored on a QB draw at the goalline for the only touchdown on the board thus far.

The Chiefs offense continues to struggle, as Matt Cassel is just 4-9 passing for just 29 yards. The rushing combination of Thomas Jones, Jackie Battle, Dexter McCluster and Cassel have mustered just 51 yards on 13 carries.

If the Broncos keep rushing the ball with success, the Chiefs will have to be more proficient with their offense. Denver's held control of time of possession and has yet to turn the ball over.

Denver will receiver the ball in the second half in Arrowhead Stadium. Oh, and if you missed it here is the phenomenal catch by Jonathan Baldwin (that didn't count due to a Chiefs penalty) that will remind everyone of the Tyrone Prothro catch. God bless Brian Dawkins, who will see this video on repeat on NFL Films forever. (Shoutout to Bomani Jones)
