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.

DENVER - The Phillies boarded their flight west on Wednesday afternoon wearing black cowboy hats. Carlos Ruiz, who lives on a ranch during the offseason in Panama, bought the hats for the players and coaches to wear to Denver for the final road trip before the all-star break. The team's first half has been filled with ups and downs, but at least it was guaranteed to end in style. "Everybody was happy wearing the cowboy hats. It was something different," Ruiz said. "I try to keep everyone relaxed.

DENVER - Adam Morgan's start Thursday night was his first in two weeks. The 11-2 loss to Colorado will likely be his last for a while. Morgan - who has a habit of yielding home runs - was no match for hitter-friendly Coors Field on a hot summer night when the ball flew. He allowed six earned runs in five innings and was tagged for three homers. The lefthander is tied with Jeremy Hellickson for the team lead in home runs allowed (16), even though he has started six fewer games. After the game, the Phillies optioned Morgan to triple-A Lehigh Valley.

DENVER - The basketball gods were cruel to the 76ers. How else can you explain how they had a much-needed victory snatched away Wednesday night? Emmanuel Mudiay lost the ball, bent down to pick it up and buried a 35-foot, three-pointer at the buzzer to lift the Denver Nuggets to a 104-103 victory at the Pepsi Center. "That's a tough way to lose," Sixers coach Brett Brown said. "I thought T.J. [McConnell] hit it and almost had a steal. Give Mudiay a lot of credit. I thought he had a great game.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Here was Evan Mathis, eight months removed from being released by Chip Kelly, rocking the Lombardi Trophy like a baby in the 49ers locker room over which his former boss now presides. That Kelly thought cutting Mathis without better options would improve the Eagles in their quest for an elusive Super Bowl seems ludicrous now. The irony wasn't lost on the Broncos guard. "I really like your new facility," Mathis said when asked if he had a message for Kelly, the new coach of the 49ers.

DEFENSE WINS championships and makes bookies nervous. Two years ago, the Broncos set a record with 76 touchdowns and 606 points. When they got to the Super Bowl, Seattle made 'em look like a JV team. No offense to JV teams, of course. But high-flying offenses have been notoriously unreliable in recent Super Bowls. Remember that New England juggernaut in 2007? The Patriots couldn't fall out of bed without scoring three touchdowns. Put up just two in the Supe as David Tyree walked into history: Giants, 17-14.

Broncos (+6) over Panthers OK, I have permission from Mrs. Vic to hit Larry Flynt's Hustler Club here in Vegas and try to win big, really big. She has only one rule: No touching. Here's the skinny: Every touchdown will be worth $100 to one of the guests. There will also be $1,000 prizes, and one partygoer (hopefully yours truly) will walk out with $1 million. Now the pick. It's gonna be Denver and we bought the Broncos at plus-6 points . And the reasons are Peyton Manning , the Broncs' 'D,' the Super Bowl ref and a perfecto as an underdog.

BRING ON the snow and bring on the conference championship games. Sunday's doubleheader is typically fascinating. Four great quarterbacks. All sorts of talented wide receivers. Denver's great defense. Carolina's great linebackers. Just hope the zebras don't get in the way. There are enough story lines in these games for a dozen daytime soap operas. Here are just a few: Patriots (13-4) at Broncos (13-4) Seeds: Patriots, AFC-2; Broncos, AFC-1. When: Sunday, 3:05 p.m. TV: CBS (Jim Nantz, Phil Simms, Tracy Wolfson, Evan Washburn)

THE JOURNEY that Evan Mathis didn't really envision taking this season ended yesterday in Denver, where the guard who made the Pro Bowl the past two seasons for the Eagles signed a one-year contract that can pay him up to $4 million, with $2.5 million guaranteed. The news had barely hit Twitter when astute observers began noting that Mathis had been scheduled to make $5.5 million this season from the Eagles, not guaranteed, and $6 million in 2016. He was released in June because his unhappiness over his contract had spread across two offseasons, and kept him out of OTAs this spring.

THE EAGLES yesterday signed guard John Moffitt to a one-year contract and released guard Cole Manhart. The 6-4, 319-pound Moffitt was drafted by Seattle in the third round in 2011 and last played in the NFL two years ago with Denver. Moffitt, 28, who played collegiately at Wisconsin, signed a four-year contract for nearly $3 million after the Seahawks drafted him. He started 15 games over two years in Seattle before a 2013 trade to Denver. He retired in November of that year.
