The Denver Broncos marched down the field last week against the Buffalo Bills and scored a touchdown on their first drive of the game. The wheels came off shortly after that as they fell to the Bills 40-14.
At the heart of the loss was a poor performance from QB Tim Tebow, including three interceptions and a lost fumble. If you ask the polarizing signal caller, the Broncos actually played well against the Bills other than those huge mistakes.
“It was a pretty good game,” Tebow told reporters this week. “But you have a handful of plays, four or five plays, that aren’t good ones, that are really bad, then it makes the whole game not too good.”
The first time the Chiefs and Broncos met in Week 10, Tebow rarely made any mistakes as Denver galloped to a 17-10 win. Thanks to a running game the Kansas City defense couldn’t stop, he was rarely pressured as he only had to attempt eight passes, completing two of them.
Even with little to play for, there’s not much of a chance the Chiefs defense is rolled in the same way by Tebow and the Broncos. The only question is if interim head coach Romeo Crennel can dial up a scheme that can create those “four or five” plays that can turn the tide for Kansas City.
