Denver Broncos

Denver Broncos dominated their last opponent, the Houston Texans. They secured the game with a 38-24 score. QB Drew Lock was on fire, going for 22/27 with 309 passing yards. He pumped up the team with his 3 thrown TDs and 1 pick. Phillip Lindsay was the toast of the ground players. He carried the ball 16 times, extending the team’s yards by 51. Meanwhile, Noah Fant took in the most receptions. His 4 catches helped the Broncos gain another 113 yards.

The Broncos meant business. They initiated 22 first-downs. They also rushed for 27 out of 55 plays which afforded them 391 yards. Interestingly, their opponent won the tale of the yards with 414. The Broncos’ secret to owning the game lay in their defense. They constricted the enemy’s throws to only a 56% completion rate. In terms of rushes, the Broncos let 22 attempts push through.

The Broncos normally aren’t a high-scoring team. Their win-loss record is nothing to brag about either. However, they have enough teamwork to make it through most games, and perhaps glean unexpected results.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs fell to a Goliath in the form of the New England Patriots. They were the heavy underdogs in that match, and they surprised everyone by finishing with a dominant 23-16 score. QB Patrick Mahomes rose to the occasion with 26/40 and 283 air yards. He notched a thrown TD and an interception. LeSean McCoy was the point person of the team on the ground. He carried the ball 11 times for 39 yards. Travis Kelce was the receivers’ top choice, catching 7 inbound balls for 66 yards.

The Chiefs were on the high path, going for 20 first-downs. 29 of their 70 plays were focused on rush attempts. They seemed to have gotten points from throws as well, making their strategy lean towards the mixed-offense type. The Chiefs were able to hold down their opponent to a 54% throw completion rate. They couldn’t stop all the rush attempts though and had to give way to 22 of these.

The Chiefs normally don’t rack up a lot of points, but their proficiency in adjusting to their opponents quickly turned the game into their favor. They kept up with New England’s scoring machine and were able to eventually surpass the latter’s offense. The Chiefs should play at this level more often so that they could earn more respect in the NFL.
