You're calling Kansas City a far inferior team to Denver?

I'd say because the Chiefs have a smart coach. Manning and his receivers can light up a zone defense like a Christmas tree!

KC's defense did a good job with Denver, holding them to their lowest point total all year. Despite what some thought they saw, it was a close game. Manning had a few passes off target that could have been intercepted. If a couple had been, KC might have walked away with a win. Or it could have been a Denver blow-out with a couple more catches.

What happened to K.C.'s pass rush?

No sacks against Peyton? Okay, well I can see that. But they have a combined one sack in their last three games. They put up a goose egg against UDFA Jeff Tuel.

KC didn't have to resort to cheapshoting Peyton with late hits to stay close. They forced a lot of punts by the Broncos but Del Rio wouldn't let Peyton try to convert any 4th downs.

Credit the Broncos oLine for doing a good job after 14 days of scrutiny. Also credit Peyton for being able to get rid of the ball in under 3 seconds and under 2 with the underneath crossing patterns.

And I will echo the sentiment of others that the game in Arrowhead will be much different. I kind of expected Denver to win in Denver. But in KC? If the Broncos win, that'll tell us a lot about both teams' potential in the playoffs, IMO.

A Broncos win in KC is always a tough thing. Last season's 2-14 Chiefs gave the eventual 13-3 Broncos a pretty good workout out there last year in a game that ended in a 17-9 final score.

The next two weeks will tell us a lot about both teams, really. The Broncos have two tough outings in back to back road games. The Chiefs play the Chargers at home, by no means a gimme. It will be interesting to see how the team responds to its first loss. And of course, to follow that game up with the game against the Broncos. Very interesting two weeks for both teams. I have Sunday Ticket, so I'll be watching the Chiefs/Chargers in the early afternoon before the Broncos/Patriots game.

I think other than the number of dropped passes the chiefs played every well.

The league has figured out their blitz schemes.

When I saw that the Chiefs' pass rushers could not tap Manning in the first quarter, I knew right away that I lost my bet to my boss.

The Chiefs' offense did not help either (Alex Smith was awful). They kept turning the ball over to Manning after short outings so the Chiefs defense had little rest in that high altitude environment. The Chiefs defense were very mediocre at the best to say. The only thing that stop the Broncos from putting 40 points on them were the Chiefs able to contain Denver's running game..or you can say that because Denver didn't pass more than they should have

The Broncos reminds me of the Patriot from last year. Both teams with excellent offensive lines that their quarterbacsk can stand back there all day without being touched. The only way to beat them is to have an incredible secondary like the Ravens had last year.....and a very good offense who can score in the high 20's

When you say stand back there all day you must mean for up to 2.5 seconds as is the case with Peyton Manning. The Broncos can and will run the football, btw. Teams can try and take that away. Fine, the Broncos will hit crossing patterns or do what they gotta do to get the offense fired up. If you let the Broncos get two first downs in a row, watch out, kick back, and watch them no-huddle all the way to the endzone. Oh, and now, the defense looks like they've joined the party too.

The Broncos just beat a 9-0 team and are being dissed for not throwing up 40+.

Speaking of 40+, that's what they did to the World Champs in week one so, who's next?

Who do the Broncos need to beat to become legit? How about the Pats in Foxboro? We shall see...
