Around the AFC West: KC Chiefs clinch the division (again!)
By Ellen Mathis
The Denver Broncos are out of playoff contention and faced the Arizona Cardinals who lost Kyler Murray to a season ending knee injury. On top of that, Russell Wilson, while cleared to play, was held out due to the concussion he sustained during their loss to the Chiefs. So, we got Colt McCoy v. Brett Rypien. Awesome. Then, of course, Colt was injured (concussion) so we got Trace McSorely v. Brett Rypien. Lord, help us.
I was much more invested in other games that were on during this time slot so I really did not pay much attention to this game because neither team is in playoff contention. Regardless, Latavius Murray really carried the Broncos to a victory:
Justin Simmons also continues to prove that he is a star and that the Broncos defense has the possibility of being something special if only they didn’t have to pitch a shut out every single week thanks to a terrible offense.
I’m all about the Broncos continuing to win (except when they face the Chiefs again) because it drops their draft position and means they might keep their head coach around. Anything to leave the Broncos at the bottom of the division for the foreseeable future.
Next week, we are #Blessed with the spectacular matchup of the Rams vs. the Broncos on Christmas. Lord, why? I’ll watch, don’t get me wrong, but this is not a good game. It looked like an incredible matchup at the beginning of the season but now it’s a stinker. Oh well, usually those terrible “on paper” games do something weird to make them fun. Bring it on.
