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 - 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.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The Eagles' new defensive backs coach won't have the same Pro Bowl talent in Philadelphia that he did in Denver. Three of the four starters from the Broncos secondary are in the Pro Bowl on Sunday, which reflects well on Cory Undlin, who came to the Eagles from Denver this week. But Undlin can't bring the Pro Bowlers with him. Cornerback Aqib Talib, cornerback Chris Harris, and safety T.J. Ward are all in the Pro Bowl from Denver's secondary. Undlin also coached Colts safety Mike Adams, who made the Pro Bowl in his first season after leaving Denver.

DENVER - The people with the cameras and the reflective green vests formed a buffer on all sides, moving as Peyton Manning moved, a dozen or so shuffling steps from midfield toward the Indianapolis Colts' sideline. From above, Manning looked like the nucleus of some colorful amoeba. Usually the winning quarterback gets the bigger throng, but the crowd around Andrew Luck looked decidedly smaller yesterday, until both groups briefly joined into a huge mass, as Manning shook hands with his successor.

DENVER - Facing frigid temperatures and a 9-day layoff, the Saint Joseph's Hawks lost their focus late last night against the Denver Pioneers, falling 77-73 in overtime. "To me, it's a fruitless trip to come all this way only to give a game away like that," Saint Joseph's head coach Phil Martelli said. "That's unacceptable. " The Hawks saw their seven-point halftime lead evaporate as the team had no answer for the Pioneers' press to begin the second half. Yet after going down 45-43 with just over 13 minutes remaining, the Hawks answered with a clutch, 11-0 run that included two big threes from DeAndre Bembry and Isaiah Miles.

DENVER - Facing frigid temperatures and a nine-day layoff, St. Joseph's lost it focus late against the Denver Pioneers in a 77-73 overtime loss Monday night. The Hawks looked ready to cruise after an 11-0 run in the middle of the second half before four crucial turnovers in the final seven minutes allowed the Pioneers (6-7) to tie it at 65 with 42 seconds remaining. Coming out of a timeout, Hawks coach Phil Martelli drew up a play for Isaiah Miles. The junior got a good look at a three but the shot rimmed out, giving Denver a glimmer of hope.

NEWARK, Del. - The start, like the entire season, was so promising for the Drexel men's lacrosse team, but eventually the experience and talent of Denver won out. After Drexel took a 3-2 lead on a goal by Nick Trizano with 5 minutes, 35 seconds remaining in the first quarter, No. 5-seeded Denver turned on the afterburners. The Pioneers scored the next 10 goals Sunday in a 15-6 victory over Drexel in an NCAA quarterfinal at Delaware Stadium. Drexel's Ben McIntosh finally ended the drought when he scored his 100th career goal with 6:12 left in the third period.

NEWARK, Del. - As the clocked ticked down to zero yesterday at the University of Delaware, all the Drexel men's lacrosse team could do was watch. Denver ran out the clock and commenced its modest celebration as Dragons coach Brian Voelker and his team watched, heads hanging heavy. Denver made sure early on that all Drexel would be able to do is watch, as the Pioneers dominated every facet of the game en route to a 15-6 win in the second round of the Division I NCAA Tournament.
