In loss to Chiefs, glaring issues sink Broncos

Bad football can teach you a lot about your team.

Well, we all kinda-sorta saw this coming, didn’t we? After victories over the Chargers and Houston, I wanted to believe that Denver had turned a corner. I’ll admit, I had a sliver of hope that the Denver Broncos would at least make it interesting.

Whoops!

Needless to say, there was a great deal to learn from in Sunday’s ugly loss to the Chiefs. Do you want to...

0 winners, 10 losers from the Broncos embarrassing 23-3 loss

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

There’s not much positive to say after the latest Broncos loss to KC. BTW, it’s at nine games in a row now.

At least I was on my couch.

That’s about the lone positive to take away from the Kansas City Chiefs 23-3 beatdown of the Denver Broncos. The result is the Broncos (5-9) losing streak to their AFC West rivals jumps to nine games, they’ll have their third-straight losing season for the first time since 1970-72 and they were officially...

Week 15: Broncos at Chiefs third quarter recap

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos are down 23-3 heading into the fourth quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs. Nothing has gone well for them in this game.

Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs picked up right where they left off with a nine yard pass to Travis Kelce on the first play of the second half that they quickly converted with a run on the next play.

A quick out to Tyreek Hill got another seven yards, but Von Miller got a tackle for a loss to force a third...

Chiefs 23, Broncos 3: Denver trounced in snow at Arrowhead

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Seemingly nothing went right for the Denver Broncos on Sunday as they were dominated in all phases of the game dropping their ninth straight to the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Denver Broncos fall to 5-9 after an ugly 23-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on the road at Arrowhead Stadium. It was a brutal homecoming for Drew Lock who finished 18/40 for 208 yards and an interception in the loss. It was Patrick Mahomes who dominated from start to finish completing...

7 things we learned in the Broncos 23-3 loss to the Chiefs

Courtland Sutton was a bright spot in an ugly loss. | Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Drew Lock has his “welcome to the NFL” game.

There’s little doubt that the talent discrepancy between the Broncos and Chiefs was a huge factor in the snow. Denver is hoping it’s about to turn the corner on the last couple years of trying to rebuild on the fly, while Kansas City has Super aspirations. It looked like it today.

Here’s what we learned:

1. The defensive line was in tatters, and...

Week 15: Broncos at Chiefs second quarter recap

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos are down two scores at halftime to the Kansas City Chiefs. That doesn’t bode well being on the road in Arrowhead.

With a first and goal at the Denver Broncos nine yard line, the Kansas City Chiefs started the second quarter with a prime opportunity to go up big early in this game.

Two plays into the quarter, the Chiefs had a third and goal from the five yard line as the Broncos red zone defense has been stout all year long. Mahomes could...

Week 15: Broncos at Chiefs first quarter recap

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos are down early against the Kansas City Chiefs in the first quarter, 6-0. But the Chiefs have a first and goal to start the second.

The Denver Broncos would lose the opening coin toss and, predictably, the Kansas City Chiefs deferred to the second half to bring Drew Lock and the Broncos offense out onto the field to start the game.

A counter by Phillip Lindsay chunked off 10-yards on their first play. Drew Lock dropped back to pass on...

NFL world reacts to epic Broncos vs. Chiefs snow game

It’s snowing in Kansas City this Sunday during the Broncos vs. Chiefs game, and the scene at Arrowhead is truly a sight to behold. The snow was already coming down hard before the game, and Chiefs players took advantage with a snowball fight you have to see. Here’s what the field looked like when Patrick Mahomes opened the game with a touchdown strike to Tyreek Hill. Just glorious. The pre-game forecast showed a ton of snow is going to fall during this game. As fans around the league...

Broncos at Chiefs gameday inactives: Denver down multiple defensive linemen

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos defensive front is looking a bit thin this week against the Kansas City Chiefs. They’re also down two starting offensive linemen.

The Denver Broncos will be playing in the snow in Week 15 in Arrowhead Stadium against the Kansas City Chiefs, but they’ll be down some key plays on both lines.

On the defense line, they’ll be missing DeMarcus Walker, Adam Gotsis, and rookie Dre’Mont Jones. They have activated Kyle Peko this week fresh...

5 things to watch for in the Broncos game in Kansas City

Can Lock carry the day? | Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Last week the Denver Broncos shocked the NFL. Can they do it again?

Don’t look now, but the Broncos are 3-2 in the post Joe Flacco era, and 2-0 since a certain rookie quarterback was added to the active roster. I will readily admit I did not expect Vic Fangio to find a way to slow down the Houston Texans last week and that the only way I saw Denver pulling it out was in a barn burner.

This week is looking even more daunting. Once...

Win or lose, Drew Lock brings excitement to the Broncos

Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images

At least today, hope has returned. It’s a refreshing change of pace after the atrocious seasons we have all endured.

Good morning, Broncos Country!

The excitement is back.

At least for me, in the here and now, that’s all that matters. Whether Drew Lock struggles and stumbles is secondary. It doesn’t make you less of a fan to play wait-and-see, nor more of a fan for the people who are all-in. But after three years of quarterback purgatory, I’m...

Broncos at Chiefs score predictions: Does Denver have a chance in this game?

Can Drew Lock lead the Denver Broncos to just their fourth win all-time against the Kansas City Chiefs in Arrowhead Stadium during the month of December?

The Denver Broncos are 3-14 all-time in Arrowhead Stadium and 3-19 against the Kansas City Chiefs on the road in general during the month of December, so they’d need to buck some serious trends to come out of this week with a victory.

However, it is Drewcember, so perhaps that momentum will carry the...

Ultimate fan: Every Bronco has to bring his A-game to beat the Chiefs

It’s a tall order, but not an impossible one. Just consider last week.

WOO HOO HOO! Broncos win! Broncos win! Broncos win!

Oh ultimate fans, what a time to be alive. I know it’s been six days since the Broncos beat the Texans, but it was so much fun, I’m still celebrating.

In fact, it was soooo much, I’m all for doing it again. And again. And again. What do you say, Broncos?

Well, our ultimate fan this week certainly is in favor of it. And...

How could the Broncos upset the Chiefs?

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Denver needs to ride Phil and Royce if they hope to beat Kansas City. | John Glaser-USA TODAY Sports

It can be done. Here’s how.

The more I’ve dug into this upcoming divisional game with the Kansas City Chiefs, the more I’ve come to the conclusion that it will be the toughest test for the Fangio Broncos in 2019. The offseason additions have helped Steve Spagnuolo turn the pass defense into a borderline elite unit while Patrick...

John Elway v. Joe Montana: a Broncos-Chiefs rivalry game for the ages

Two of the greatest quarterbacks in history facing off in one of the NFL’s greatest games in history.

There is nothing better than a rivalry.

And for the last 20 years, the Broncos v. Chiefs has been one of the best in the AFC West.

But in October 1994, the John Elway-led Broncos faced the Joe Montana-led Chiefs for a Monday Night Football showdown at Mile High that will go down as one of the sport’s greatest games ever.

Broncos vs Chiefs final injury update: Ja’Wuan James ruled out again

Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images

For every possibility of a return to full-time work, Ja’Wuan James has a setback. The Denver Broncos will be without him yet again this week as they take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

When the Denver Broncos inked right tackle Ja’Wuan James to an impressive 4-year, $51 million deal in March that included a hefty $12 million signing bonus, 63 total snaps through thirteen games is not exactly what they were hoping for. However, it would appear that...
