In games against the Broncos Patrick Mahomes has already faced off against three different Bronco quarterbacks. Case Keenum came closest to ending the Chiefs’ winning streak in 2018, but ultimately failed to connect with Demaryius Thomas down the sideline in the closing seconds. The Broncos haven’t beaten Kansas City since Week 2 of Peyton Manning’s last year in the league.
The Denver Broncos activated cornerback A.J. Bouye along with defensive ends Dre’Mont Jones and DeMarcus Walker off injured reserve Saturday. They also promoted inside linebacker Nigel Bradham and running back Jeremy Cox from their practice squad. Earlier, the Broncos released D-lineman Timmy Jernigan and Sylvester Williams, who was re-signed to Denver’s practice squad Saturday.
Last week, we saw a very different Kansas City Chiefs team on offense, with backup offensive linemen clearing freeways for Clyde Edwards-Helaire and two backup receivers stepping up for an injured Sammy Watkins. This week, it’s another divisional game, and likely another snow game, so anything could happen. But the Chiefs will likely continue to evolve as they work in Le’Veon Bell to an already-loaded offense.
