If there is one word so far that you can use to describe the battle between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos, that would definitely be “physical.”

This is two teams that have pretty good defensive units, to say the least. A good reason why the Chiefs are as good as they are this season is because they have a defensive setup that’s rivaled most in recent years. That certainly helps in taking a team from 2-14 to 9-0.

But, don’t think the Broncos are lacking in that area neither. Those guys in orange are more than just a future hall of fame quarterback and some athletic offensive playmakers, as was evidenced in the second quarter.

The Chiefs were driving deep into Denver territory where they eventually got themselves a first and goal. However, what they couldn’t get themselves, in the end, was into the end zone:

The Chiefs would have to settle for a field goal to cut the lead to 17-10.
