Broncos 24, Chiefs 17: Jay Cutler Giveth and Jay Cutler Taketh Away

Filed under: Broncos, Chiefs, AFC WestThe Kansas City Chiefs had to be feeling pretty good about themselves nine minutes into Sunday’s game with the Broncos. Jay Cutler had just gifted them a touchdown with a pass into coverage which Maurice Leggett picked off and took for six points. That made it 10-0 Chiefs and a replay of Week Four’s 33-19 win looked like it was in the cards.

Cutler wouldn’t let it happen, though. He was 30-of-36 with 270 yards and two touchdowns after that interception and did most of his best work late in the game when an injury to Peyton Hillis cost the Broncos any semblance of a running game. Cutler completed eight passes, including the winning touchdown to Brandon Marshall, on a 12-play, 95-yard drive that bridged the end of the third and start of the fourth quarters.

Then, backed up on their own one-yard line on third-and-10 with just under four minutes to play, Cutler hit Marshall for 19 yards for a first down. He followed that with an 11-yard strike to Tony Scheffler on another third down to ice the game and, barring a complete collapse, the AFC West for the Broncos.

Cutler is the reason why. Hillis was the sixth Bronco back to go down to injury this season and that’s put a lot of pressure on the quarterback. He’s inconsistent and brasher than he has any reason to be, but Cutler’s put up strong performances often enough to keep a poor defense and mediocre running game from stopping the Broncos run to the playoffs.
