Thankfully, the secondary has been improved immensely throughout the offseason. Drafting Marcus Peters in the first round and then adding Steven Nelson in the third gives Sutton great competition. Gaines has reportedly returned a new man throughout OTA’s and Tyvon Branch has been added to bolster the safety position. Kansas City now have a very strong secondary to counter the offensive weapons of the Broncos.

The Chiefs will be able to limit Denver to a maximum of 25 points with the improvements on defense. The offense could be looking at 20 points to win. The question is whether Alex Smith will be able to manage his offense to produce the necessary points?

Without trying to start another Alex Smith debate, I am a Smith fan (cue haters). Smith, with an improved offense, should be able to put 20-plus points on the board to secure victory for the Chiefs. For once, Kansas City fans will be able to celebrate beating the Broncos and Manning. Whether this will lead to an AFC West title is another question altogether, but Reid will be able to smile after at least one game this season.

So, Chiefs fans, do you agree that Kansas City will be celebrating beating the Broncos? Do you believe that the secondary will be crucial in determining the result, and are you backing the offense to put up 20-plus points? Let me know in the comments, and as always… GO CHIEFS!
