Elway pep talk preceded Chiefs stomping

DENVER (AP) - A dozen years after retiring, John Elway still can spark the Denver Broncos.

Energized by the Hall of Fame quarterback's pep talk last week, the Broncos rolled to a 49-29 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in their highest-scoring game in five years.

Relying on a steady rushing attack, a solid defense and a quick early lead, the Broncos (3-6) snapped a four-game skid and pulled within two games of the Chiefs (5-4) and Raiders in the middling AFC West.

The last time the Broncos played at home, they were humiliated 59-14 by Oakland.

Linebacker Mario Haggan said the team owed a better showing to its fans.
