DENVER -- Hidden inside Terrance Knightons gargantuan body listed generously at 330 pounds is a former tight end who dreams of playing offence. Lazar Markovic Liverpool Jersey . "I have great ball instincts being an ex-wide receiver," Denvers mammoth nose tackle said after preserving the Broncos 24-17 win over the scrappy Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Knighton deflected Alex Smiths fourth-and-goal pass from the 2 to Dwayne Bowe with 15 seconds left. He was engaged with centre Rodney Hudson when he reached up and felt the football smack into his right arm, then skitter harmlessly into the end zone. "Id rather it my arm than theirs," said Knighton. So, what would it take for Peyton Manning to have Knighton line up with him as a not-so-secret offensive weapon, like J.J. Watt did in Oakland on Sunday? "Might have to send two guys out of the game to put Terrance in there," Manning deadpanned. "Believe it or not, I have thrown some passes to him in practice and he does have good hands. I will vouch for that. High school receiver, he says." The Broncos (2-0) didnt think it would come down to another goal line stand, but Aqib Talibs interception return for a TD earlier in the drive was negated when Quanterus Smith jumped offside. Then, Nate Irvings fumble recovery following DeMarcus Wares sack and strip was changed to an incomplete pass after a review. "We had two takeaways taken away," Broncos coach John Fox said. "There are going to be things well look at that we need to improve on. But well take every W we get." The Chiefs (0-2), without All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles for much of the game, converted 11 of 16 third-down opportunities overall. They just couldnt capitalize in the biggest moments as the Broncos mustered two goal-line stands for the second straight week. Manning was 21 of 26 for 242 yards and three TDs with no interceptions, but spent most of the game on the sideline. The Broncos had the ball for less than 10 minutes in the second half. "Its part of football," Manning said. "Ive been in games like that where you get excited on third-and-long, start warming up, ready to get out there. The defence out there, they were maybe bending a little, but not breaking." Smith was 26 of 42 for 255 yards, and Knile Davis ran 22 times for 79 yards and two touchdowns for Kansas City. Charles left with an ankle injury in the first half, as did safety Eric Berry. Without Wes Welker for the second straight game and facing a defence that lost Pro Bowl linebacker Derrick Johnson and tackle Mike DeVito last week, Manning targeted his tight ends again. He found Julius Thomas and Jacob Tamme for 4-yard TDs in the first half. Manning also threw a 12-yarder to Demaryius Thomas. The Broncos (2-0) head to Seattle (1-1) next week not exactly with a head of steam. Theyll face the Seahawks, who handed them a Super Bowl shellacking and then talked trash about them in the off-season. The Broncos have their issues on third downs, but they certainly have come up big on the goal line. Smith led the Chiefs on a 19-play drive that ate up 10 minutes coming out of halftime. They came up empty after getting to the Denver 4 on the strength of five third-down conversions. "I guess that answered the question if were out of shape," Knighton said. An offensive holding call and linebacker Brandon Marshalls sack dropped the Chiefs back to the 19. Cairo Santos, who beat out veteran Ryan Succop in camp, was wide right on a 37-yard field goal attempt. "Weve got to punch it in, bottom line," said Bowe, who caught three passes for 40 yards in his return from a one-game suspension. The Chiefs got it right the next time, converting three third downs on a 14-play drive that covered 90 yards. Davis trotted in from 4 yards, pulling Kansas City to 21-17 with 7:11 left. Santos, however, failed to kick a touchback and Bubba Caldwell returned it 54 yards, setting up Brandon McManus 20-yard field goal with 3:27 left. Coach Andy Reid said he doesnt regret cutting Succop and keeping Santos: "Our guys got to kick better right now but I dont ever look back on those things." Kansas City was trying to get Charles more involved after giving him just seven carries against Tennessee in the opener. But he left after running just twice for 4 yards and catching one pass for 8 yards. Reid blamed himself for poor play calls in the red zone, but Smith said Charles absence was sorely felt close to the goal line. "Everything is magnified down there," Smith said. "It hurts to have him out." Notes: Emmanuel Sanders led the Broncos with eight catches for 108 yards, the first 100-yard game of his career. ... Demaryius Thomas had an 80-yard TD catch negated when right tackle Chris Clark was whistled for being downfield. Divock Origi Liverpool Jersey . -- James Harden scored 31 points, including 25 in the second half, and the Houston Rockets dug out of a double-digit, first-half hole to beat the Orlando Magic 101-89 on Wednesday night. Roberto Firmino Jersey .

Final Score: Vancouver 3, Carolina 0 Raleigh, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Miller made 28 saves to record his fifth shutout of the season and second in as many nights as the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Carolina Hurricanes 3-0 on Friday. It was the first time in franchise history the Canucks recorded back-to-back shutouts on the road in consecutive days. Derek Dorsett, Shawn Matthias and Alexandre Burrows all scored in the second period and Kevin Bieksa supplied two assists for the Canucks, who beat Philadelphia 4-0 on Thursday.

Final Score: Nashville 4, Washington 3 Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Barry Trotz received a warm welcome back from the Bridgestone Arena crowd in his return to Nashville. His former team didnt quite return the generosity, however. James Neal scored his second goal of the night with 1:40 remaining, capping a furious late comeback from the Predators that produced a 4-3 triumph over Trotzs Washington Capitals. Nashville overcame a 3-2 deficit by scoring twice in the final 4 1/2 minutes, with Mattias Ekholm netting the equalizer on a power play to help the Predators to their first five-game win streak in three years. Trotz was behind the bench for that run, as well as many others while serving as the Predators head coach for the franchises first 15 seasons of existence. That tenure came to an end when he was fired at the conclusion of the 2013-14 campaign, shortly before taking over in Washington. Seth Jones added a goal and an assist for Nashville, while Carter Hutton came up with 31 saves in his first start since the Predators announced standout goaltender Pekka Rinne would miss 3-to-5 weeks with a sprained knee. Alex Ovechkin notched a pair of goals in the loss, which halted a stretch of 10 straight games of recording at least one point for the Caps. Braden Holtby finished with 26 saves.
