Joey Chestnut sets Burrito mark in Denver

ID=27940611The Denver Outlaws took a bite out of the Chesapeake Bayhawks on Sunday night at Sports Authority Field. Denver won the game 17-10 and that's when the real biting, or chewing, began.

The Outlaws hosted a competitive eating contest and had the number one ranked, Joey Chestnut, in for the festivities. The food was Illegal Pete's burritos and contestants had 10 minutes to eat as much as they could.

Chestnut, widely known for his success in the 4th of July Nathan's Hot Dog eating competition, at 19 burritos (more than 14 pounds worth) shattering the world record.

Outlaws defender, Michael Simon, also took part in the competition. He ate four burritos in the allotted time.
