Broncos could be walking into hornets’ nest
ENGLEWOOD, COLO. (AP) - Up next for the Denver Broncos is the one team they’ve managed to beat in the past two months.
They’re not exactly exhaling.
The Broncos (3-8) don’t expect their rematch with the Kansas City Chiefs (7-4) to be anything like it was three weeks ago at Invesco Field, when Denver jumped out to a 35-0 lead and won by three touchdowns.
“An old game, a new month,” is how Denver defensive lineman Kevin Vickerson described the rematch.
While the Broncos have been reeling ever since their 49-29 smackdown of KC that culminated in Todd Haley’s post-game snub of Josh McDaniels, the Chiefs have been on a roll, scoring 73 points in wins over Arizona and Seattle to maintain their AFC West lead.
“To be on pace for an NFL low in turnovers and then still have that type of production in the passing game _ that tells you that you are basically hitting it on the head all the time and Matt is having a season that is very deserving of all the accolades he is receiving,” McDaniels said.
Plus, the Chiefs are still smarting from their embarrassing trip to Denver.
“The bottom line is it was one game that we didn’t play well,” Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson said. “It was probably our worst game of the year. We’ve definitely moved past that. We know they got the best of us the last time we played. We have to do a lot better job than in the first time. We have to stop the run and make a play. We didn’t make any plays.”
Sounds a lot like the Broncos of late.
They’re 3-8 for the first time in 20 years and their 5-16 slide dating to last season is their worst such stretch in nearly 40 years.
Their tailspin isn’t limited to the football field.
