DENVER -- Mid-fourth quarter notes from Denver where the Broncos lead 24-17:
- Denver receiver Brandon Marshall is having a big game. He had nine catches for 72 yards and he has two touchdown catches. Marshall eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark in receiving this season with a reception in the fourth quarter.
- Denver receiver Brandon Stokley is out with sprained right ankle. His return is questionable.
- Denver kicker Matt Prater continued his rough second half of the season. He missed a 49-yard fled goal in the third quarter,
- Denver running back Tatum Bell's 28-yard run just keyed a Denver touchdown drive. Cutler hit Marshall with a 6-yard touchdown pass to cap the drive. It was Bell's best play since being signed by Denver last month.
- Denver has scored 17 unanswered points.
- Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles is back in the game. He was out with an ankle injury.
