The Broncos have had several memorable matchups with the Chiefs, particularly during the years in which John Elway was the Broncos’ starting quarterback (1983–98). The Broncos defeated the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in the divisional round of the 1997 NFL playoffs, en route to their first Super Bowl victory.

Since the American Football League was established in 1960, the Broncos and the Chiefs have shared the same division, first being the AFL Western Conference, and since the AFL–NFL merger, the AFC West. For years, the rivalry has featured two of the best home-field advantages in the league. It also heated up in recent years due to the Chiefs and Broncos both having a winning record from 2013–2016.

The Dallas Texans/Chiefs dominated the Broncos in the 1960s, the decade of the AFL, winning 19 of 20 games. The Broncos have responded since then, winning the series of every subsequent decade and holding a 9–7 edge so far in the 2010s. The Chiefs/Texans lead the series 61–55, but since the Texans moved to Kansas City and became the Chiefs, the series is tied at 55–55. Dallas swept all six meetings in the first three years of the rivalry.

Notable Broncos-Chiefs Rivalry Moments Last 10 Years

November 16, 1997: The Broncos were trailing the Chiefs 21–19 at Arrowhead Stadium, and were backed up at their own 27-yard line with two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Quarterback John Elway led the Broncos down the field, with Jason Elam kicking a 34-yard field goal with only a minute left to give the Broncos a 22–21 lead. However, Chiefs’ quarterback Rich Gannon drove the Chiefs to the Broncos’ 37-yard line, and kicker Pete Stoyanovich hit a 54-yard field goal as time expired to give the Chiefs a 24–22 win.

January 4, 1998: A very hard fought, yet controversial game. Less than two months after the aforementioned last-second win by the Chiefs, the Broncos returned to Kansas City for the divisional round of the 1997–98 NFL playoffs, and redeemed themselves by upending the No. 1 seed Chiefs 14–10, en route to their first Super Bowl win that season. It has been a win shrouded in controversy as the referees wrongfully called Tony Gonzalez out of bounds on one of his touchdowns and Broncos lineman and Terrell Davis coating themselves with Vaseline in the first half.

October 5, 2003: Chiefs’ return specialist Dante Hall returned a punt 93 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, after it seemed that the Broncos’ special teams had him corralled for a loss deep in Chiefs’ territory. This gave the Chiefs a 24–23 win over the Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium.

November 14, 2010: The Broncos stormed out to a 35–0 lead against the visiting Chiefs before the second half, leading to a 49–29 victory. Chiefs’ head coach Todd Haley was distraught after the game and snubbed a postgame handshake with Broncos’ head coach Josh McDaniels, thinking that the Broncos were running up the score on the Chiefs.

September 17, 2015: The Broncos trailed 24–17 at Arrowhead Stadium with 2:27 left, when quarterback Peyton Manning engineered a 10-play, 80-yard drive, culminating in a game-tying 19-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders with 36 seconds left. The game appeared to be headed to overtime, until Broncos’ linebacker Brandon Marshall forced Chiefs’ running back Jamaal Charles to fumble on the next play from scrimmage. Cornerback Bradley Roby then returned the fumble 21 yards for a touchdown to give the Broncos a stunning 31–24 comeback win.

November 15, 2015: Two months after the aforementioned Broncos’ comeback win, the Chiefs exacted revenge on the Broncos in a dominating 29–13 win at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The visiting Chiefs ended a seven-game losing steak to the Broncos, and their defense gave Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning’s his first (and only) 0.0 passer rating of his career. Entering the game, Manning needed only three yards to become the NFL’s all-time leader in regular season passing yardage, however he threw for just 35 yards and four interceptions before being benched in the third quarter in favor of backup quarterback Brock Osweiler.

November 27, 2016: The Chiefs were trailing 24–16 with three minutes left in regulation, when quarterback Alex Smith engineered a 13-play, 75-yard drive, culminating in a 3-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tyreek Hill, coupled with a game-tying two-point conversion with only 12 seconds remaining, sending the game to overtime. Hill previously returned a free kick 86 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter and also scored on a 3-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. After each team exchanged field goals in overtime — a 44-yarder by Broncos’ placekicker Brandon McManus followed by a 37-yarder by Chiefs’ placekicker Cairo Santos, the Broncos were trying to win the game with a highly criticized 62-yard field goal attempt by McManus, but the kick was both short and wide-left, giving the Chiefs possession at the Broncos’ 48-yard line with 1:08 remaining. Four plays later, and with five seconds remaining, Santos kicked the game-winning 34-yard field goal for the Chiefs, which initially caromed off the left upright.
