DENVER (AP) - Kyle Orton threw a career-high four touchdown passes and Knowshon Moreno had his first 100-yard rushing performance as the Denver Broncos routed the Kansas City Chiefs
49-29 on Sunday in their highest-scoring game in 47 years.
Snapping a four-game skid, the Broncos (3-6) kept alive their thin hopes of getting back into the playoff race by handing the Chiefs (5-4) their second straight loss.
The only time the Broncos scored more was in 1963, when they put up 50 on the San Diego Chargers.
The Broncos stuffed the Chiefs' vaunted ground game by jumping out to a 35-0 lead behind a trio of touchdown passes from Orton, a 1-yard run by Tim Tebow and a 75-yard fumble return for a TD by linebacker Jason Hunter.
Tebow also threw his first NFL pass, a 3-yard TD toss to fullback Spencer Larsen.
