On Thursday night, the Denver Broncos hosted the Kansas City Chiefs in a pivotal divisional contest.

After opening the season with four-straight wins, the Chiefs suffered back-to-back home losses for the first time under Andy Reid. Star quarterback Patrick Mahomes re-injured his ankle two weeks ago and Kansas City hasn't looked like the same team since.

Thursday night's division game offered a great opportunity for the Chiefs to bounce back from a few tough losses.

The broncos did their part early in helping Kansas City get back on track.

Trailing 10-6 in the second quarter, Denver ran a fake punt on fourth-and-four. Let's just say the Chiefs were ready for the fake and it did not work out too well for the Broncos.

Check it out.

It's not a great idea to attempt a fake punt against a division rival when that team is in desperate need of a win.

Kansas City eventually kicked a field goal on the ensuing drive to take a 13-6 lead.

Denver further helped the Chiefs cause with a turnover on the very next possession, which the Chiefs returned for a touchdown.

Kansas City holds a 20-6 lead, but lost starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes for the rest of the game with a knee injury.
