Chiefs-Broncos predictions are split - Arrowhead Pride
I still believe in this defense despite some issues against Tampa Bay. Justin Houston looked a LOT more ready to go than I expected, which is a great sign for how he will do down the stretch. A great deal hinges on Marcus Peters and his football-magnet hands coming back healthy, and the offense has got to figure out a way to be at least semi-competent against a tough defense. Last season, the offense looked similarly putrid and Andy Reid made the necessary adjustments to get it to an "average" level. I expect to see something similar this year. If not, well... there could be trouble.

After the bye week, the Broncos get to come back to play in prime time at home against a deep-rooted rival, KC. To Cheifs' fans dismay (and those of us to who have to listen to it) Von Miller loves to abuse Alex Smith, and he will be out to take back the lead in sacks on Sunday. The question is whether the offense can stay on the field long enough for Von and the rest of the defense to catch their breath. Hopefully Siemian and the offensive line got some stuff figured out over their break and the offense is able to get Booker his huge break out game.
