Broncos vs. Chiefs: Peyton Manning visits KC for first time as AFC West rival

While Manning has thrown for at least 240 yards in every game in 2012, the Chiefs haven't reached that mark since Week 2.

There aren't many teams playing better than the Denver Broncos after the first 11 weeks, and there aren't many playing worse than the Kansas City Chiefs. Prior to Week 10, the Chiefs had yet to hold a lead for a second of game clock, although the team did earn a Week 3 victory with a game-winning field goal.

While the Chiefs finally managed to earn leads in both Week 10 and Week 11, neither game ended in wins. The Chiefs will have their hands full trying to snap that trend against the Broncos, a team that has five consecutive games.

In each of the first 10 games of the season, Peyton Manning has thrown for at least 240 yards. The Chiefs haven't finished with that many yards passing since a Week 2 loss to the Buffalo Bills. The game at Arrowhead Stadium will be the first time that Manning has played the AFC West-rival Chiefs as a member of the Broncos.
