Week Two – The Denver Broncos at the Kansas City Chiefs
Will the Kansas City Chiefs be better this year than last year? Will the addition of Jeremy Maclin at wide receiver make a difference? Can Jamal Charles be as dominant as he’s been in recent years? Will Alex Smith play a little more loosely than his reputation suggests?
I don’t know the answers to any of these questions, but I do know it’s a tough draw for the Broncos to go to Kansas City in Week Two on a short week. After opening at home vs. the Ravens, the Broncos will travel to a place they don’t always play well: Arrowhead Stadium. This is an early divisional showdown and, while the Broncos under Peyton Manning have been almost perfect against the AFC West and, in fact, went 6 – 0 vs. teams in the division last year, they will drop a game or two against their divisional opponents this year.
I am guessing this will be one of them.
The new offensive system will, likely, still be settling in and the Broncos may not have their “A” game just yet. As much as it pains me to say it, the Broncos lose in Week Two in Kansas City.
