The Broncos were able to hold off Tom Brady and the Patriots to win the AFC Championship and head to the Superbowl.
So why is a story about the Broncos on Arrowhead Addict, a site dedicated to all things Chiefs? Well that is simple, it affects the AFC West as a whole for the 2014 season. Having the Broncos go all the way to, hopefully lose to either San Francisco or Seattle, means that the competition next year for the Chiefs is going to be raised. Not to say that is was not already but the fact the Broncos were able to go means that they are more than likely again to be favored to win the West.
What does that mean for the Chiefs? This year we saw great strides made by this Chiefs team. To go from last in the NFL to making the playoffs is a feat not many can claim. Even though towards the end of the season there were some major gaps in the once top ranked Chiefs defense, look for them to correct those errors in the offseason. The offense will only strive to get better as they really developed chemistry in the second half of the season.
So Chiefs fans far and wide, this season may have been a bust in that we still failed to get a playoff win, but it is with great anticipation that I await the 2014 season.
For the Chiefs next year starts the dream all over again as they take the lessons they learned and make the changes to hopefully dethrone the Broncos from atop the West.
