Denver Broncos Perfect Remedy for KC Chiefs: Fan Take
The Denver Broncos are the perfect remedy for the Kansas City Chiefs as they look to rebound from a humiliating loss. When the Chiefs were downed 31-3 at home by the winless Miami Dolphins Nov. 6, it was the third blowout of the year suffered by the Chiefs.
Now the Broncos come to Arrowhead Stadium in a key AFC West matchup Nov. 13. Three of the four teams in the AFC West are all tied at 4-4. Kansas City is about to enter its most brutal part of the schedule.
The perfect remedy, and the best send-off for the Chiefs, is a game against the Broncos.
The one thing Kansas City has done well this year is get to quarterbacks that are struggling. Against the Oakland Raiders Oct. 23, the Chiefs intercepted Carson Palmer(notes) and Kyle Boller(notes) three times each. Both men were adjusting to the offense after Jason Campbell(notes) went down with an injury.
The following week on Halloween, the Chiefs and their fans got to San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers(notes). He was sacked three times and had two interceptions. His fumble from center with 48 seconds to go was recovered by the Chiefs and allowed them to hang on for a 23-20 victory in overtime.
The Broncos had a quarterback controversy earlier this year before Tim Tebow(notes) took over the starting quarterback duties from Kyle Orton(notes). Tebow had 118 yards rushing for Denver in a 38-24 victory where he had touchdown passes. He is a second-year quarterback still learning how to play in the NFL.
The secondary of the Chiefs need to step up big and make it hard for Tebow to complete his passes early on. The sooner he gets flustered, the more he will panic and start to make more mistakes. Tamba Hali(notes) and the defensive line also need to get into Tebow's backfield early as well. Head coach Todd Haley might consider trying to rattle the young quarterback with some blitzes on the first drive of the game for Denver.
Kansas City needs to stop Tebow early. If they can put him on ice, then they can focus on the running game of Denver which is the fifth-best in the NFL. Matt Cassel(notes), as the more experienced quarterback, should be able to use this game to get better this season as well. The Broncos give up 258 yards passing per game.
Bring on Tebow and the Broncos. They are the perfect remedy for the midseason blues of the Chiefs.
