Bad night for the Chiefs fans who have been screaming for 10 weeks that their guys don’t get respect. Because your guys just got smacked. Denver 27. KC 17.
I’d give you credit for even keeping it that close, but y’all don’t want credit. You wanted the crown. You claimed you were a beast… the AFC’s best.Well you just failed that test. I claimed it yesterday on CBS- the only way the Chief’s record stays spotless is if they make Peyt’s gamer filthy. Well they don’t even need to dry-clean #18 for the next home game because Manning spent the whole game upright and untouched on his gimpy stick. No strip sacks, no sacks, not even so much as a knockdown. Funny how different it is when the dude in the pocket isn’t named Tuel, Fitzpatrick or Gabbert.
And as always, I’m not here to hate. I’m here to shoot straight. And I’m not saying Kansas City isn’t a good team. But the fact is they got fat on Bad teams. And they got exposed by this Broncos team.
Because their formula got flipped on its head. The Chiefs were the ones turning it over in the red zone and taking chippies over 6. Those game-changing defensive touchdowns they’ve been living off? They weren’t coming. And the offense wasn’t coming back down 17 points.
Look at it this way Chiefs fan: As long as your guys get a half-dozen sacks and get to face a backup quarterback: you’re unbeatable. But last night you got neither and got your eye dotted.
Nice team, great story… But you’re not the Alpha of the NFL if you’re not even the beast of your own division.
