Chiefs Have Tweaked Their Offense Under Kyle Orton

No surprise here but the Denver Broncos defensive coordinator says he's noticed the Kansas City Chiefs have tweaked their offense under Kyle Orton. The last time the Chiefs offense went up against the Broncos defense was back on Nov. 13 when Matt Cassel was under center.

Denver DC Dennis Allen was quoted by Lee Rasizer of as saying:

"I think they've changed a little bit offensively," he said. "Theyr'e running the ball really effectively the last couple weeks and using Kyle on the play-action game. They've done a good job of playing to his strengths."

Romeo Crennel spoke to the KC media today and he said that you don't build necessarily build an entire offense or defense around one player -- he was using Eric Berry as an example at the time -- but that you do have plays tailored specifically to that player. When the player is gone, you have to throw those out.

Unfortunately, the tweaks offensively haven't done a whole lot to change the biggest problem -- scoring touchdowns. As we noted earlier, the Chiefs offense hasn't scored multiple touchdowns in a game since October.
