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 - One of his teammates jabbed at him for his robotic, unemotional answers to the media's questions. Another picked on his sense of fashion. But John Mayberry Jr., who wore an ascot with his suit as he boarded a plane out of Denver bound for Los Angeles, took it in stride. Everyone is allowed to have a little fun at his expense when it comes after a victory, especially a victory that was preceded by two defeats in which the Phillies scored a total of two runs at the hitter's haven that is Coors Field.

NEWARK, N.J. - Winston Justice wasn't traded unknowingly to the Colts two years ago. He said that the Eagles called him one March day and asked him if he wanted to play elsewhere. "They called and asked, 'Do you want to be traded?' It wasn't like they traded me," Justice, now a Broncos tackle, said this week. "They were like, 'Do you want to do this, like, before we do this? Are you sure?' So it was like they gave me a choice to do it or not. " He said yes and was dealt to Indianapolis for an exchange of sixth-round draft picks that jumped the Eagles ahead 15 spots.

Since the Eagles once again aren't playing in the Super Bowl, we have another chance to celebrate the cuisines of other teams - without feeling the least bit disloyal. The heritage, population, and climes of both coastal Seattle and mile-high Denver are a great starting point for some fresh and healthful dishes. And it seems too close after making the New Year's resolution for a healthy diet to revert to the worst of the junk-food habits of game day. So, why not draw inspiration from the cities of the two franchises who will be facing off for Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday?

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's laugh rang from his corner of the Denver Broncos locker room after Friday's practice, just as it did during his two seasons with the Eagles. Former Eagles coach Andy Reid used to say that "every day is a good day for DRC. " But the team suffered from more bad days than good days when Rodgers-Cromartie was in Philadelphia. Rodgers-Cromartie's smile is for good reason this season. He signed a one-year deal in Denver during the offseason and has become an integral part of the Broncos' defense.

DENVER - Steve Downie and Max Talbot, forwards who were traded for each other on Halloween, had different perspectives when they faced their former teams on Thursday night at the Pepsi Center. Downie, a winger who returned to the Flyers' third line on Thursday, downplayed his return to Denver. He played across three seasons with Colorado but got into only 33 games. "Injuries," Downie said before the game, when asked to characterize his tenure with the Avalanche. "It's unfortunate, but it is what it is. I never really got to show what I could do, but at the same time, it's over with.

DENVER - Second-year forward Arnett Moultrie is getting very close to suiting up for the 76ers for the first time this season after having been sidelined since training camp following ankle surgery in September. For him to get some minutes, Moultrie must get his timing back and get into game shape. If he is to get minutes, perhaps even extended ones, coach Brett Brown said the 23-year-old will have to get rid of the stigma attached to him. "He's looking just like he should be looking, he's looking really out of place in relation to timing and fitness," Brown said.

DENVER - Things were certainly out of whack last night at the Pepsi Center. In the first 15 minutes of play between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets, there was a total of 22 fouls called. For two teams who like to play at a quicker pace, the refs had them playing in mud early on. The Sixers, usually horrendous at covering the three-point shot, limited the Nuggets to just one make in their first eight attempts. Meanwhile, the Sixers drained half of their first 14. Both teams had been struggling recently to score, a big reason why Denver had lost seven in a row. But the Sixers scored a season-high 68 points in the first half, also yielding 56. Strange happenings, indeed.

DENVER - There was a buoyant atmosphere in the 76ers locker room after their surprising road victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. Now they have a chance to follow up Sunday night's rarity - their first road win in 13 tries - with something that hasn't been accomplished since the first week of November. A victory over Denver on Wednesday at the Pepsi Center would mark the Sixers' first winning streak since opening the season with consecutive triumphs over Miami, Washington and Chicago.

Lockheed Martin Corp. is laying off 4,000 workers, including 1,050 in Newtown, Bucks County, as the nation's largest defense contractor consolidates operations in response to reduced government spending. By mid-2015, Lockheed will shutter the Newtown plant, which designs and develops commercial and military satellites, including weather satellites and ones for NASA. Lockheed Martin, based in Bethesda, Md., also announced plans Thursday to close plants in Akron, Ohio; Goodyear, Ariz.; and Horizon City, Texas, and to shut down four buildings on its Sunnyvale, Calif., campus.

BRANDON BOYKIN is listed at 5-10, 185. Maybe there was a time when he would have been able to play linebacker effectively in the NFL, but that time faded into memory right around when the Eagles dropped those blue-and-yellow 1930s uniforms. Nonetheless, Boykin found himself an inadvertent outside linebacker for a few minutes Sunday in Denver. Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis later explained he'd sent Boykin out thinking the Broncos were running a three-wideout set. Instead they were going with two tight ends.
