Coffee with the Chiefs – Test for Marcus Peters


Good morning, Addicts! We are one day away from some more Kansas City Chiefs football when they take on the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs are trying to beat the Broncos for the first time since Denver acquired Peyton Manning in the 2012 offseason. It will be an incredible test, but if Kansas City can pass, it looks like a very promising campaign.

Here is the news you need to know:

Peyton Manning will make Marcus Peters prove it againAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Rookie cornerback Marcus Peters had an interception on his first play for the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. That didn’t stop the Houston Texans from going after him several more times before the Chiefs left Texas with a season-opening 27-20 victory."

No time for the Chiefs’ offensive line to relax Adam Teicher of ESPN

"The Kansas City Chiefs and their offensive line survived their meeting with J.J. Watt and the Houston Texans, but there’s no time for them to relax. The Chiefs have a short time to prepare for their game on Thursday night at Arrowhead Stadium, where their opponents will be Von Miller, DeMarcus Ware and the rest of the Denver Broncos."

"I could go on, but I just have to take a second to shout out to Bob Sutton. The Chiefs defensive coordinator was somewhat maligned after his first season with the Chiefs (the playoff loss to the Colts left some seriously sour taste in our mouths), but the majority of fans came around to him as the defense blossomed last season despite the absence of some key contributors."

"I’m not convinced Alex Smith makes these passes last year. Maybe I’m just misremembering to make the Chiefs look better (tis the season) but the eye test told me that the Chiefs opened it up more and the results – 27 first half points – showed what happens when the Chiefs do that."
