#1 Broncos vs Chiefs preview: How does Denver pull an upset? von chenyan94 10.01.2019 09:47

Rivalry weeks are always special. Fans know to expect the unexpected. Fans of the Denver Broncos got their first taste this season with a Week Two 20-19 come-from-behind win over the Oakland Raiders. It’s the latest evidence that anything and everything is possible in a rivalry game. That’s true for the next opponent the Broncos face — the Kansas City Chiefs. There have been some all-time classics from these two teams.If you sensed a “but” on the horizon Youth Matt Paradis Jersey , you were right. The usual excitement Broncos Country feels for this rivalry has been replaced with, “but do we have to?” Even the most optimistic Denver (2-1) fans know Monday Night Football against the Chiefs (3-0) could get ugly. Hopefully the old adage is true, “when two rivals meet, the records don’t matter.” That might be the only way the Broncos have a chance. On the latest MHR Radio Podcast, Adam Malnati and I search for any way Denver can pull the unthinkable (we don’t think there is, by the way). Offensive RankingsKansas City: Seventh in overall offense (398.3 yards), 15th in rushing (103.3), seventh in passing (295.0) and first in points (39.3).Denver: Tied for 11th in overall offense (382.7 yards), third in rushing (144.7), 16th in passing (238.0) and 19th in points (20.3).Defense RankingsKansas City: Thirty-second in overall defense (474.0 yards) Youth Darian Stewart Jersey , tied for 18th in rushing (111.3), tied for 31st in passing (362.7) and 30th in points (30.7).Denver: Fourteenth in overall defense (340.3 yards), fourth in rushing (77.7), 22nd in passing (262.7) and 16th in points (23.3). Here are our keys to the game. Run the football The best way to slow down Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense is to keep them on the sideline. For the Broncos to do that they have to run the football. Good for them that’s what they’re good at through three games on offense. Kansas City’s defense is hot garbage, but don’t get into a shootout — not with those weapons. Eat clock with long, methodical drives that finish in touchdowns but also exhaust the Chiefs defense. In turn that keeps Denver’s defense as fresh as possible for the Orange Rush to get after Mahomes and limits the miles the Frequent Flyer Zone can give away. — Ian St. Clair Flip the script Denver has been playing back on first and second down hoping to get to third down to bring the sizzle. So far, that hasn’t worked, and Mahomes will shred the Broncos if they try that again this week.Blitz from the first snap and don’t stop. Mahomes is a young quarterback who is operating great within Andy Reid’s scheme, because they have been dictating pace and matchups. Don’t let them. Is it more risky? Sure, but we know what we’re going to get if we don’t take a risk. Don’t allow him to pick his spots http://www.thebroncosfootballauthentic.com/domata-peko-jersey-authentic , force him to one or two choices based on pressure and having to throw hot, and close out on that option.Rattle him and make him uncomfortable, and maybe Denver has a chance to shake up that jauggernaut offense.One thing I know is that doing more of the same isn’t going to work.— Jeff Essary Control tempoThe Chiefs offense may be a pick your poison proposition for the Broncos defense. This will be a huge test for the offense. What we saw from Kansas City against the Pittsburgh Steelers is its inability to stop anyone. The Broncos will need to do the same. Case Keenum will need to control the tempo of the game. If the offense can keep pace, they should be able to come away with a win. — Adam Malnati Return of the No Fly Zone Secondary has to find a way to keep the game in the 20s. That’s on Joe Woods. He has to mix the coverages and keep Reid and Mahomes off balance enough to give the Orange Rush time to get home. If he fails to do that, Denver has no chance. —Just_JoRoSign extra defensive linemen The purpose for this is to hit Mahomes on literally every play. We will get lots of personal fouls and many ejections, but it’s the only chance the Broncos have. Otherwise, we are staring down the barrel of a 20-30 point defeat. — Pete Baron Be ready for the MNF lights Denver needs to be ready to execute from the opening kickoff. None of this “settle in” nonsense. The Chiefs won’t wait for the Broncos to get into a groove. Adjustments need to be made on the fly, and both coaches and players need to be ready for implementing them. — Casey Barrett The MHR Radio Podcast is now on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify http://www.thebroncosfootballauthentic.com/jeff-heuerman-jersey-authentic , Stitcher and TuneIn.

The Broncos and the Chargers renew their rivalry on Sunday, with the Chargers sporting one of the best records in football. Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. knows that keeping the Chargers from getting to 8-2 will depend on containing quarterback Philip Rivers.The challenge doesn’t arise simply when Rivers has the ball in his hands.鈥淚t鈥檚 before the play,” Harris told reporters on Wednesday. “It鈥檚 before the play even happens. The way he dissects the defense and what we鈥檙e doing. We can鈥檛 be sitting ducks this week. I said that earlier in the year, we can鈥檛 be sitting ducks. We can鈥檛 be stagnant. We have to move. We have to try to confuse him. It鈥檚 no different than when you play a guy like Peyton [Manning]. A guy that understands everything that you do defensively. We can鈥檛 be sitting ducks. So we have to move around and make it hard for him.鈥滺arris nevertheless looks forward to the challenge.鈥淚t鈥檚 just fun, just football,” Harris said. “It鈥檚 a rival game, a division game, and you want to beat him. That鈥檚 just what it is. You know he wants to beat you bad and he鈥檚 probably drawing up something for me right now just to get me. I鈥檝e got to be ready for anything. Facing Rivers, he鈥檚 a guy who knows me very well. I know him very well. Like I said Womens Royce Freeman Jersey , I think this is our 16th time, 15th or 16th time playing against him. I know them in and out.鈥漁ne specific factor about facing Rivers isn’t fun for Harris.鈥淸H]e whines a lot on the field,” Harris said with a laugh. “He does whine a lot, he does. I would say guys probably just get tired of him whining. If you鈥檙e a quarterback though — I can play with him. Just because you know he鈥檚 going to do whatever he can to try to will his team. Try to get every call from the ref. That鈥檚 just how Rivers is. He鈥檚 going to be screaming at the refs just as much as we are during the game.鈥滺e also will be screaming at Harris.鈥淗e might be the only quarterback that truly talks smack the whole game,” Harris said. “But it鈥檚 fun though. I just tell him that 鈥業鈥檒l try to get you again.鈥?He鈥檚 always happy to try to get me whenever he can. But I鈥檓 going to try to make him pay.”The Broncos need Harris to make Rivers pay, because they need to win as many as they can down the stretch in order their second straight sub-.500 record for the first time since 1971-72.
