KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jamaal Charles rushed for 116 yards and Matt Cassel threw a 3-yard pass to Leonard Pope for the only touchdown, leading Kansas City to a ragged 10-6 victory over Denver on Sunday.

Knowshon Moreno rushed for 161 yards for the Broncos (3-9), who are enduring one of their worst stretches in decades, losing 17 of their past 22 games under coach Josh McDaniels.

In spite of all their blunders, the Chiefs (8-4) stayed unbeaten in six home games and remained on top of the AFC West.

Chiefs coach Todd Haley, who refused to shake hands with McDaniels after losing in Denver three weeks ago, embraced his counterpart this time and even gave him a pat on the head.
