Kansas City Chiefs Do The Unimaginable And Beat The Denver Broncos

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs got all the breaks in a game where they needed everything to go their way.  The Denver Broncos stepped into Arrowhead as 9.5 point favorites and walk away losers in a 33-19 Chiefs victory.

Stats are here

Highlights:

  • Larry Johnson continued his domination of the Broncos in a 28 carry, 198 yard, 2 touchdown performance that reminded us of the LJ of old.
  • Damon Huard defined the words journeyman in a 160 yard, 1 touchdown performance in which he completed 75% of his passes.  Impressive? Nah.  Good enough? Works for me!
  • The rookie corners, Brandon Carr and Brandon Flowers, played a magnificent game in which each recovered a fumble.  Carr stole one of Cutler's passes while Flowers nearly did the same.  Carr, in particular, greatly minimized the impact of Brandon Marshall who is Cutler's biggest weapon.

Yes, there were holes on both sides of the ball.  This game isn't indicative of what we will play like every week.  But there's no time for that now.  We got our first win.  Tony Gonzalez is one yard away from the record.

I've never been so happy to say we are 1-3!  Go Chiefs!!
