The Chiefs will try to get back to their winning ways as they play host to Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. After suffering a terrible loss like they did last week all they can do is try to forget about it and move on, but they have plenty of practice doing that (Reference Weeks 1 and 2).
Tim Tebow is one of the most talked about players in the NFL and as bad as he’s looked at times, he’s still able to make game-changing plays. Last week he ran for 188 yards and passed for 124. He’s finally starting to look comfortable and the Chiefs are gonna need to contain the quarterback if they don’t want him to be Tebowing in the end zone.
Against Miami the Chiefs defense did not look great overall. They had been playing well during the four-game winning streak, so we know they’re capable of stopping opposing offenses. This week they won’t need to worry too much about the passing game, but along with Tebow is resurrected Willis McGahee. He’s having a great season so far and has been working well within the Broncos offense.
Kansas City is going to have to be more efficient on offense this week. They were able to move the ball into the red zone twice last week, but could not get into the end zone. Two main keys on offense are converting third-down conversions and scoring touchdowns when in the red zone and the Chiefs need to do both if they are going to have success from this point on.
Matt Cassel has statistically been productive against Denver, but it’s going to take a total team effort to come up with the victory. The Chiefs can’t afford to lose another one at home and are going to need to play a complete game for 60 minutes.
