Given short week, Broncos practice light for Mahomes, Chiefs

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos are envisioning ways to stop Patrick Mahomes. The visuals will have to suffice.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Exhibit No. 1 in support of Vic Fangio’s desire to convert Kareem Jackson into a fulltime strong safety is the 10th-year pro’s jackhammering, fumble-causing, touchdown-saving, touchback-inducing, bone-crunching hit of Chargers running back Austin Ekeler .
