Coffee with the Chiefs – Preparing for Denver


Good morning, Addicts! The Kansas City Chiefs are trying to prepare for the Denver Broncos this week, who visit Arrowhead Stadium for their Thursday Night Football clash. Both teams are 1-0 and are tied atop the AFC West, along with the San Diego Chargers. Whoever wins will have an early leg up in the division race. The Chiefs are trying to stop a streak of six consecutive wins by Denver in the head-to-head series.

Here is the news you need to know:

Scouting report: Kansas City ChiefsCameron Wolfe of the Denver Post

"Tight end Travis Kelce was unstoppable Sunday catching all six of his targets for 106 yards and two touchdown passes. He’s become a primary weapon in the Chiefs’ passing attack along with running back Jamaal Charles and receiver Jeremy Maclin."

Andy Reid continues to defend Eric FisherAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Reid said that it became evident during Fisher’s limited repetitions that he was unable to plant on his ailing ankle. That would have made it difficult not only to defend Watt and Co. during pass protections but to move around in the run game."

Mitch Morse looks fantastic in NFL debutSeth Keysor of Arrowhead Pride

"Morse’s loss percentage is at a place I’m comfortable with, and he had many snaps where he directly contributed to the success of the play. He gave up one pressure I could attribute to him directly, a missed assignment on a delayed blitz. Beyond that his pass protection made me smile all game."

Chiefs need Marcus Peters to come up huge in Week 2Adam Teicher of ESPN

Peters had the first, an interception early in the game. The Chiefs drafted him hoping he could be the big-play cornerback they’ve lacked for years and, one play into his career, they looked as if they found the right guy.
