KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Peyton Manning threw for 403 yards and five touchdowns, and four of them to Eric Decker, as the Broncos beat the Chiefs 35-28 to seize control of the AFC West with a one game edge in the standings and a season sweep of KC.

Jamaal Charles had 93 yards rushing for the Chiefs, and capped a 17-play drive with a 1-yard touchdown run with 6:32 left in the game to pull the Chiefs to within a touchdown. The defense forced a punt with 3:32 remaining and Alex Smith drove the Chiefs down field all their way from their own eight. On a 4th-and-4 with 1:45 left, Smith's pass to Dwayne Bowe in the endzone was knocked away preserving the win for Denver.

Smith threw for 293 yards and two touchdowns and Knile Davis returned a kickoff 108 yards as the Chiefs jumped out to a 21-7 lead before Manning and Decker helped the Broncos scored 28 unanswered points.
