Dwayne Bowe ties long-standing record

DENVER -- There is at least some sunshine for Kansas City on a day where it looks like the Chiefs will fall into a first-place tie with Oakland with a 5-4 record. The Chiefs have been in first place all season.

Kansas City just cut Denver’s lead to 42-17 with 2:22 left in the third quarter on a 15-yard pass from Matt Cassel to Dwayne Bowe.

It marked the fifth straight game Bowe has scored a touchdown pass in. It tied a team record held by Chris Burford (1962) and Otis Taylor (1966).
