I thought KC played pretty well for most of the game. Their defense got 3 straight stops on us even when their O continually hung them out to dry. Denver did some damage in spots and more than doubled the points KC usually gives up, but not surprisingly, they didn't completely open up a can on the Chiefs D. It is for real and it will be even stingier in KC.
The Chiefs offense is basically putrid outside of Charles. They were able to connect with the TE and also Bowe a little more often than usually as DEN did a good job on Charles in the pass game, as he was the leading receiver going in.
KC is a good team, and in most years they would go 11-5. Their record will be better than that this year because they have done a nice job closing things out late and they are coached well. Smith will prevent them from winning on the road against the Denver's and New England's in the AFC in the postseason, so it will really come down to whether they take care of business from here on out. I do expect them to win a nail biter in KC against us in a couple weeks, which means the NE game is critical for DEN.
