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.
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.
Demaryius Thomas was named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week for the first time in his career after becoming the first Broncos receiver in a decade with a trio of TD receptions.
Peyton Manning was a no-show to start practice Wednesday with the Denver Broncos.
John Fox said Tuesday that he plans on returning to the sideline this season.
Peyton Manning is taking a beating. The Broncos’ offensive line is battered and his right ankle is throbbing. And now here come the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs, leading the league in sacks.
Eric Decker said the Chargers did a good job disguising their defensive coverages, something he expects to see once again as the Broncos meet the Chiefs in Denver on Sunday.
John Fox received a bit of a scare 10 days ago when he felt ill while playing golf in North Carolina, which led to heart valve surgery. The Denver Broncos head coach is now recovering and took time to talk to reporters about that on Tuesday.
It was supposed to be a week off for Chiefs coach Andy Reid, the one time during the grueling 17-week season where there are hardly any practices and no stressful game.
A person with knowledge of the results says Peyton Manning’s MRI showed aggravation of his right ankle that is not expected to keep the quarterback out of next Sunday’s game against Kansas City.
