Coffee with the Chiefs – A dominant defense


Good morning, Addicts! After what the Kansas City Chiefs did to the Denver Broncos on Sunday afternoon, I bet it was not too hard to get out of bed this morning. Kansas City was nothing short of special against Peyton Manning and his overwhelmed charges, forcing five interceptions and sacking Denver another five times.

On occasion, you need to just sit back and enjoy what has happened. The Chiefs absolutely laid the wood to the Broncos, forcing them to wonder who their quarterback is. In two years, Kansas City has forced Tom Brady and Peyton Manning to the bench.

"The Chiefs also came up with five sacks, two by Justin Houston, and to a man they spoke of preparation and communication. It had to help that Manning was playing with injuries to his ribs and foot, but this was the same player who had won 14 of his 15 previous starts against the Chiefs, with the Colts and Broncos."

"The Kansas City Chiefs did all that damage Sunday — picking off the Denver Broncos quarterback four times, holding him to 35 yards passing and sending him to the bench in the third quarter with a 0.0 passer rating en route to a 29-13 win."

"Good try, coach. The primary problem just may be that Manning is 39 years old. Yes, he is banged up. But 39-year-old athletes are more negatively affected by nagging injuries than younger players. That’s why players are drafted out of college and not after they turn 30."

"The question was about the Broncos, who the Chiefs (finally) beat, 29-13 here on Sunday. Wild day, too, one that left Broncos fans cursing, Peyton Manning talking about whether he was still the starting quarterback, and Chiefs fans hoping."
