That gives the team time to lick its wounds. The Chiefs have been the healthiest team in the NFL and many think, the luckiest. They haven’t played a single team with a winning record, thus far.
That changes next Sunday night when they face the Denver Broncos in Denver.
The 9 and 0 Chiefs are truly a Cinderella story to this point. The team scored zero touchdowns last week and their offense is below average at best. Their great defense is also fading with only 3 sacks in 3 games and numerous huge running and passing plays being given up against second and third tier quarterbacks. Hopefully, that will come to an end Sunday in Denver and they will improve.
A win – or even a close loss – will make them a legit Super Bowl challenger.
I’ll wait to see what Denver quarterback Peyton Manning’s health looks like after the Chargers game but at this point, Denver is a seven to eight point favorite, I would have to bet on the Broncos and give up the points. Hey, I want the Chiefs to win, I just think it’s going to be up hill. Go Chiefs!
K-State will lose to Texas Tech.
KU needs to find a football team, thank God they have one of the best basketball programs of all time.
