Puh-leeze: Chiefs’ defense could have used a teeny tiny bit of help from offense
OK, the Chiefs’ defense probably is going to take a lot of the blame, unfairly, for this loss. I will contend, however, that the defense did its part in keeping the Chiefs close enough to win this game.
If you want to know what separates Smith from the elite quarterbacks in the league, look no further than a few sequences on Sunday night.
OK, I’m not saying Smith lost the game for the Chiefs. There were plenty of culprits, to be sure.
One of the big moments of Sunday’s game came late in the first quarter when the Broncos and Chiefs exchanged turnovers on consecutive plays.
Let’s try to keep in mind that the Chiefs were 2-14 a season ago, and that general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid deserve a parade through the Plaza for turning this team into a likely playoff squad in such short order.
