KANSAS CITY, Mo., Dec. 5 (UPI) -- Matt Cassel connected with Leonard Pope for a TD pass and the Kansas City Chiefs allowed just 86 passing yards Sunday in their 10-6 win over Denver.

Jamaal Charles picked up 116 yards on 21 carries for the victors.

Orton was held to a mere 9-of-28 passing as Denver (3-9) lost for the seventh time in eight games.

Knowshon Moreno amassed 161 yards on 23 carries for the Broncos.
