The Broncos have been outscored an aggregate 98-42 in the first half. The team has learned to rally in the second half, particularly in the fourth quarter. But what’s with falling behind 27-7 at Atlanta, 31-11 against Houston, 31-7 at New England and 24-0 at San Diego?
“I still feel like there’s new players and still think there’s some things where me and the receivers can improve on,” Manning said. “Things I can still improve on.”
Fumble! The Broncos’ offensive turnover problem hasn’t been interceptions. Manning’s four picks are tied for fifth-lowest in the NFL. The problem has been the nine lost fumbles. Only the hapless Kansas City Chiefs have more, with 10.
After cracking the starting lineup for the eventual AFC West champions as a rookie, Lewis missed four games and didn’t start another because of injury. The Chiefs went 1-4 in those games.
“He’s definitely the general of the defense,” cornerback Brandon Flowers said. “He gets everybody lined up and makes it easy on everybody with the calls.”
Flowers and first-round pick Eric Berry, who made the Pro Bowl as a rookie, remain the stars in the Chiefs’ secondary, but it’s Lewis, who started all 16 games last year, that holds the group together.
KC Wolf and former Chiefs Linebacker, Shawn Barber, were at the event demonstrating exercises and fun activities for the students to participate in while encouraging physical fitness.
“Shawn Barber got the kids excited and then KC Wolf came out and they had some competitions of various activities and physical fitness opportunities and the kids were very excited to compete with both of them,” Principal Jeff Green explained.
It was very apparent that the students at Starside Elementary School were excited to be a part of the event. It was especially obvious when KC Wolf entered the room, the crowd went wild. The students were ecstatic to meet the wildly rambunctious Chiefs character.
“They were incredibly enthused, loud, and excited to see KC Wolf,” Green noted. “During our assemblies we teach the students to be a respectful audience and they did great. They were respectful but also loud and cheering at times. It was fun to watch.”
