The Broncos play the Chiefs in an AFC West meeting between teams with the best combined record of two opponents this deep into the season since the NFL merger in 1970.
Peyton Manning’s four big targets have combined for 30 touchdown catches so far, yet the most important receiver the Denver Broncos have right now isn’t Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Wes Welker or Julius Thomas.
The quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs likes to run an up-tempo offense, wing the ball all over the field, tuck it under and scramble when things get hairy. But slow things down? Keep the other offense off the field? That’s a hard idea for him to accept.
Even before he was hired in January, Chiefs coach Andy Reid watched tapes from every game that Kansas City played last season, including both matchups with the Broncos.
