Broncos rip through Chiefs' revamped defense - FoxSports.com - AP
9/26/2005 - Rod Smith, Mike Anderson and the Denver Broncos made that newfangled Kansas City defense seem a lot like the old one. And that vaunted Chiefs offense looked pretty lame, too.

Anderson ran for a 44-yard touchdown and Smith became the first undrafted player in NFL history to reach 10,000 yards receiving Monday night, as the Broncos handled Kansas City from start to finish in a 30-10 victory.

Jake Plummer went 13-of-18 for 152 yards - including a 12-yard TD to Smith - and ran for a score on fourth-and-goal from the 1, an efficient performance that was more than enough to blow out Trent Green and the Chiefs.

Bailey, who missed the preseason with hamstring problems, pulled up limping after tackling Chiefs fullback Tony Richardson. He was grimacing and yelped in pain as he was helped off the field.

Broncos officials said he would not return.

DENVER, CO. -- It was a milestone game for Rod Smith and a pretty memorable night for the rest of the Denver Broncos, too.

Mike Anderson ran for a 44-yard touchdown and Smith became the first undrafted player in NFL history to reach 10,000 yards receiving, as the Broncos handled the Kansas City Chiefs from start to finish in a 30-10 victory Monday night.

"It's great to just play with Rod," said Charlie Adams, himself an undrafted third-year receiver who has moved to third on Denver's depth chart. "He's an inspiration to everyone out here, especially guys like me who've struggled to stay in the league."
