Just how strong is that Chiefs Kool-Aid, and how many around Chiefs’ Kingdom are drinking it?
That’s the question we’re seeking to answer with today’s Twitter interaction piece.
Listen folks, the Denver Broncos are a good team, there’s no doubt about that. The Chiefs are a good team too though, and in fact, at least according to the records, they’re the better team.
You’ve got to be pretty good to be the only 9-0 team in the NFL, right?
For those thinking that this Sunday Night matchup is going to be a blowout, you’re probably going to be wrong. Kansas City’s defense will get after Peyton Manning, and the Chiefs have the talent in the secondary to match up with Denver’s receivers and make it hard for them to get open.
On the offensive side of the ball, running the rock and controlling time of possession is going to be important. But there’s no doubting the fact that Alex Smith is going to have to make a few big throws as well. It’s called keeping the defense honest.
At the end of the day, this could go either way. The Chiefs could turn it into a slugfest and come away with a win, or Denver can turn it into an offensive track meet.
I can either scenario happening. I can also see this game coming down to a random bounce of the ball.
What we want to know is what you see happening though, so we took to Twitter and asked you who you think is going to win, and why.
Ah, the good old “nobody believes in us” card:
@ArrowheadAddict Of course, CHIEFS! I love the fact that everyone believes we suck…. Love it!

This Addict feels that Dwayne Bowe’s state of mind will come into play:

Could Alex Smith win this game with his legs? It’s certainly possible:
@ArrowheadAddict Chiefs win a close one, 24-21. Alex Smith uses his legs to get first downs and Charles has a big day.

Without a doubt, Dontari Poe is going to have to have a huge game:
@ArrowheadAddict Poe gets constant pressure up the middle and we have long sustained TD drives

Here’s another believer in the defense. Can’t blame this Addict:

@ArrowheadAddict Chiefs win bc donkey OL is too battered to handle H2Poe (Hali, Houston, Poe). Bowe has standout performance

Alright folks, what do you think? Sound off below.
For the record, I predicted a 20-14 Kansas City win the other night on AA Radio.
