What was one of the biggest themes we found in tweets about the Broncos' 27-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football? A lot of people couldn't stay awake to see the end. Presumably, many of these folks are relocated Coloradans (or Peyton Manning fans) on the East Coast, where the game ended after midnight -- but maybe some locals are only just hearing about the big victory, which knocked KC from the ranks of the undefeated. If so, get a flavor of the contest from our twenty favorite tweets, supplemented by images from last night's W. Number 20:

Passed out yesterday watching Broncos-Chiefs, at the end of the 3rd quarter. Is it worth of a rewind?

Glad the Broncos finally put the Chiefs in their place. After playing so many easy games, they couldn't handle the Broncos!

Aside from having worse DL, QB, OL and receivers than Broncos thought the Chiefs played Denver fairly even.

whats worse is theres still no respect for my Chiefs. Held the Broncos under 30? Offensive problems yes, but we'll only get better.

Wait are broncos fans upset because chiefs fans are still sticking up for their team? Isn't that what a "fan" is? This sport sucks.

I am shocked by the fact that I know 13 IRL people who gave up their Sunday night to eat my food and watch the Broncos whoop the Chiefs.
