Coming into the weekend, Kansas City found itself all alone atop the AFC West for the first time since Oct. 25, 1981. Sure hope it was nice while it lasted. The Denver Broncos (5-2) saw to that by beating the visiting Chiefs yesterday, 19-16. It was the ninth straight time the Chiefs (5-3), who had won four in a row, have lost at Mile High Stadium. And Kansas City coach Marty Schottenheimer is 1-7 against the Broncos, 0-5 at Denver. Before yesterday, Denver quarterback John Elway had thrown more interceptions against the Chiefs (24)

From the point of view of interim coach Gene Littles, Denver's losing streak was "five going on 10. " Had the Nuggets lost to the visiting New Jersey Nets for loss No. 6 last night, the Nuggets could easy have slipped into double digits with upcoming road games against San Antonio, Houston, Utah and the Los Angeles Lakers. They avoided that possibility as Dale Ellis came off the bench to score 17 points and Dikembe Mutombo had 19 rebounds, ending the five-game skid with a 96-90 victory.

John Elway said Denver got manhandled, and Tyrone Braxton decided the Eagles could play a little defense after all. So if yesterday's Eagles-Broncos bash at Veterans Stadium was supposed to be a preview of the next Super Bowl, Denver must have felt right at home. The Broncos played almost exactly the way they do in Super Bowls, those grand NFL contests they lost three times in the 1980s by increasingly lopsided margins. Never moving the ball or playing defense with any great consistency, the Broncos managed only 82 yards in total offense - 306 yards short of the Eagles' total.

Denver is one city that lives up to its nickname. The Mile High City is exactly 5,280 feet above sea level, if you measure from the 13th step of the Colorado Capitol In most other ways, Denver defies its stereotype. Denver is a new city, stocked with post-World War II arrivals and their children and a representative cross-section that reflects the traditionalism of the Midwest and the wackiness of the coasts, with a strong Hispanic influence, too. It is the largest non-Sunbelt city between the Mississippi and the Pacific, with nearly 2 million people in the metropolitan area.

The Mile High City proudly touts the fact that it's gone for two whole years without a single air pollution violation. So, um, what's that smear on the horizon? For that matter, where is the horizon? Alas, said Margie Perkins of Colorado's Department of Public Health and Environment, just because Denver's air - after years of smoggy notoriety - now meets federal standards on dangerous pollutants doesn't mean it's any clearer. "We still have our Brown Cloud," she said.

MAYBE IT'S ME, but I thought the circus left town awhile ago. So how come when I put on the TV, my 3-year-old son points at the screen and says, "Look, daddy, look at all the clowns!" - only then do I realize I'm watching the Democratic National Convention in Denver. I only say this so that the term "Pie in your face" can be used. We have a governor who makes statements that put doubt in everyone's mind about the Democratic candidate. Then we have Hillary, who six months ago couldn't find a nice thing to say about the presidential hopeful now telling everyone that "he's the man. " Is this what politics is all about, the art of illusion and trickery, maybe sabotage and intimidation?

LeBron James left one rebound shy of a triple-double. That's about all the Heat could complain about. James finished with 24 points, 11 assists, and nine rebounds, and the Heat won their 27th straight by running away at the finish to beat the Magic, 108-94, on Monday night in Orlando, Fla. Miami pushed its lead to 20 before Heat coach Erik Spoelstra emptied the bench in what was his 250th win with the team. The Heat are within six games of matching the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers for the longest winning streak in NBA history.

DENVER - When you're in the midst of a winning streak, luck and good fortune is always by your side. When you're mired in a losing one, the inexplicable becomes ordinary. The Nuggets' Corey Brewer, fouled on a desperation three-point shot with 2.1 seconds left, made all three foul shots Thursday night to complete an improbable comeback and steal a 101-100 victory over the 76ers. Brewer's winning free throws were preceded by the Sixers' Evan Turner missing two foul shots with 7.1 seconds left and the foul by Damien Wilkins that put Brewer on the line.

Even eternal optimist Jimmy Johnson admits his Miami Dolphins face long odds in the second round of the playoffs. Jacksonville's 25-10 victory yesterday over New England determined the pairings for next weekend's AFC games, and the Dolphins will play Saturday at Denver. That means Miami must contend with the well-rested defending Super Bowl champions, a hostile crowd and winter weather. And the Dolphins must do it without their only Pro Bowl player. Defensive tackle Tim Bowens underwent surgery yesterday to repair a torn tendon in his arm, and he'll miss the rest of the postseason.

In another major shuffle of a defensive lineup that finished a disappointing 17th in the NFL last season, head coach Rich Kotite said yesterday that Ben Smith has been told he will play free safety in 1994. And Smith is not happy about it. But the whole dispute might not matter. Denver head coach Wade Phillips said yesterday that the Broncos and Eagles have been heavily involved in trade discussions for the veteran defensive back. The Eagles have shown an interest in one of Denver's offensive tackles, Don Maggs, a nine-year veteran who had back surgery last year and started only two games.

THE TRUTH is that all of the historical references attached to yesterday's NCAA Division I men's lacrosse championship game had no impact on the play at Lincoln Financial Field. The University of Denver and the University of Maryland last played in 2008 - before Bill Tierney left Princeton to take over the Pioneers program and before John Tillman became coach of the Terrapins. Talk about other teams in each program not accomplishing this or not winning that was really just talk.

When Bill Tierney took over at Denver, supporters of the team hoped the coaching legend would bring west the touch that helped him win six NCAA titles with Princeton. Monday, that hope became a reality. Denver captured its first NCAA men's lacrosse championship with a decisive 10-5 victory against Maryland before 24,215 at Lincoln Financial Field. Senior Wesley Berg capped his career with the Pioneers with a five-goal performance, notching three in a first quarter that ended with Denver ahead 4-1. Berg was named MVP of the tournament.

After his team allowed victory to slip away in regulation, Denver's Wesley Berg made sure it wouldn't happen again in overtime. Berg scored the game-winner 1 minute, 57 seconds into the extra period to lift the Pioneers over Notre Dame, 11-10, Saturday in an NCAA men's lacrosse semifinal at Lincoln Financial Field. Denver (16-2), which has never won an NCAA lacrosse title, will face Maryland (15-3), which has not won the crown since 1975, in the championship game at 1 p.m. Monday at the Linc.

The Notre Dame lacrosse team has a lingering memory of its last trip to the Philadelphia area, and it's not a good one. Three weeks ago, the Irish (12-2) were the top-ranked team in the country. That would have been a surprise to anyone who had not seen them play before, as they suffered a 13-8 loss to Duke in the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. The Blue Devils - who handed the Irish an 11-9 defeat in last season's NCAA title game - raced out to a 10-1 third-quarter lead from which the Irish would never recover.

FROM A HISTORICAL perspective, little is unusual about the lacrosse national semifinal matchup between the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University tomorrow at Lincoln Financial Field. Since they first met in 1895, the Terps and Blue Jays have played more than 100 times, and the rivalry between the Maryland institutions is widely considered the greatest in collegiate lacrosse. Still, something is unique about this Hopkins/Maryland meeting - part of this weekend' NCAA Division I Lacrosse Final Four - and it could be the most important event for lacrosse in decades.

DENVER - Justin De Fratus turned around and watched as the ball traveled toward the wall in left-center at Coors Field. His two-strike, two-out pitch in the eighth inning quickly became Nick Hundley's third home run, and the Phillies trailed again. They could not battle back from their third deficit of the night. A 6-5 loss to the Colorado Rockies snapped the Phillies season-high winning streak at six games Tuesday night. "A pitch I was trying to get in the dirt," De Fratus said.

DENVER - The pregame talk centered on the supposedly inspired Denver Nuggets. 76ers coach Brett Brown even said they were playing with a little more purpose since the teams last met on Feb. 2. "They have talent," Brown said. "You look at their roster, and they're talented. . . . They have enough talent and depth to win in this league. On first glance, that's what I see. " But what 14,068 fans at the Pepsi Center witnessed was the Sixers snapping their 16-game road losing streak.

DENVER - The adjustment, to say the least, has been strenuous. New country, unfamiliar teammates, different style of play. Those are just some of the things Furkan Aldemir has encountered since leaving his native Turkey and coming over to join the 76ers on Dec. 15. After slowly getting worked into the rotation and seeing action in 17 of 18 games, Aldemir was relegated to the bench and played in only five of the next 15. But with a contract...

DENVER - In his 60 games as a 76er, Robert Covington has started 40 of them. Sometimes it appears he prefers being the starter, as was the case Tuesday night when he scored a team-high 21 points and made 5-of-6 three pointers in a loss at Sacramento. Last night in Denver, with Jason Richardson back in the starting lineup, Covington went back to the bench. His play didn't lessen a bit, however, as he poured in 25 points to lead the Sixers (18-54) to a 99-85 in over the Denver Nuggets to close out their three game, west coast swing with their lone win and in doing so snapped a 16-game road losing streak.
