DENVER -- Mid-fourth quarter notes from Denver where the Broncos lead 24-17:
Denver receiver Brandon Marshall is having a big game. He had nine catches for 72 yards and he has two touchdown catches. Marshall eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark in receiving this season with a reception in the fourth quarter.
Denver receiver Brandon Stokley is out with sprained right ankle. His return is questionable.
Denver kicker Matt Prater continued his rough second half of the season. He missed a 49-yard fled goal in the third quarter,
Denver running back Tatum Bell's 28-yard run just keyed a Denver touchdown drive. Cutler hit Marshall with a 6-yard touchdown pass to cap the drive. It was Bell's best play since being signed by Denver last month.
Denver has scored 17 unanswered points.
Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles is back in the game. He was out with an ankle injury.
