Chiefs vs. Broncos: Are you encouraged or discouraged after KC's first loss?

Are you leaving Sunday night's Chiefs-Broncos game feeling more encouraged or discouraged about the Chiefs?

Doug Pensinger

There are varying opinions on the Kansas City Chiefs as we wake up two days after the loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football, the Chiefs first loss of the season. I heard this question from Danny Parkins on 610 Sports yesterday and thought it was a good one.

Are you leaving the game feeling more encouraged or more discouraged by the Chiefs?


  • The Chiefs are not frauds. They did not get blown out in Denver.
  • The Chiefs were a dropped interception away from being in the game.
  • The defense only gave up 104 yards rushing.
  • The Chiefs threw the ball down the field.


  • The pass rush. The Chiefs had no sacks.
  • Coaching. The Chiefs didn't go for it on a 4th-and-2 at the goal line nor on 4th-and-7 on the 42-yard line.
  • The Chiefs gave up their first 300-yard passer of the season.
