Oh i know they have a problem there. Im just thinking if both teams play their curent A game then I predict Denver 28-31over the Chiefs 24-27. I just think something big has to change in the game plan for us to win in Denver. I dont want the hopes of Denver not playing their A game be the "plan".
Another week, another backup QB dispatched with extreme prejudice,
and another week that makes you wonder exactly what Alex Smith is capable of
against an upper-echelon opponent that's going to take 24 points or more to
beat. Putting the Chiefs higher than fourth basically certifies them as a
favorite to reach the Super Bowl, so consider this. In 2000, Trent Dilfer of the
Ravens was 20th in the league in yards per attempt among QBs who threw at least
200 passes. In 2002, Brad Johnson was 16th. The Chiefs currently rank 31st, and
that's only due to the pure havoc that Josh Freeman wrought on the Tampa Bay
passing game. Even if you think the Chiefs D is the equal of all-time greats
like the 2000 Ravens or 2002 Buccaneers, it's being asked to do even MORE heavy
lifting than those units due to KC's punchless passing attack
read that on the sb nation
I, for one, would be dissapointed if Peyton were not to play the entire game against us.
I want to see how we stack up against top competition. I have seen plenty of backups. The postseason will require playing against the best. And the postseason is the goal now.
here's what i expect to see in 2 weeks....the broncs score early and quick, the CHIEFS score on a long 10 or 12 play dink an dunk drive.....the broncs score quick again... the CHIEFS follow up w/another long drive...FG...then denver goes 3/out....CHIEFS long drive another FG....then the broncos score quick.....CHIEFS long drive TD....this goes on eventualy the CHIEFS have stayed within 10pts and in the 4th qtr this time the broncos D starts to tire, KC still fairly fresh and the game will go down to the wire
.......yes i know u will mention the thin air will give denver a late game edge, but i am sure big red will have thought of that and got the team to denver early enough to adapt, especially cause of the bye week.
That is probably the way the game will have to go if we are to have a chance of winning. If we can stay close going into the 4th quarter then I like our chances. Just have to make sure we don't let them get up by more than 14 or maybe just a touch more. I just don't see us as a come from behind by 21 points sort of team. Not that we couldn't, but it would take almost a total collapse by the Donks for us to do it.
