08:13 PM ET 09.29 | The Kansas City Chiefs advanced to 4-0 today with an impressive performance over the New York Giants, but the Chiefs did take a little hit to their offensive line. While the win doubled their win total from a season ago, the team will now await word on their rookie right tackle. According to reports, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Eric Fisher, was diagnosed with a "mild" concussion. As with all concussions, Fisher will need to undergo a flurry of tests before he is cleared by an independent neurologist and able to return to the field. If the early diagnosis is a "mild" concussion - since injuries to your brain can apparently be mild - then the team shouldn't worry about losing their starting right tackle for any significant time.

Can't wait for the KC-Broncos game. Smith and Reid are making a good team there in KC.

Don't be mistaken. Peyton is not even fully using his tools in scoring 52 today. Things may change - Denver does KC in a 3 week span for home and away, but they have done so while missing three key players, Clady, Champ, and Von. They'll have 2 of those resources back and well integrated by that time.

3 strong RB's, 5 strong receivers, and a top 10 of all time field general.

The only excitement with Denver this year will be if they can run the board through Feb.

Gotta tell you, Evol, I haven't been too worried about the Seahawks playing any team this year (though yesterday's game suggests I should re-evaluate that position) except Denver. It's kind of a nightmare scenario that we finally get back to the Super Bowl only to get crushed by the Broncos. On the other hand, it could be an epic battle for the ages, but it worries the hell out of me.

A SeaHawks/Bronco games is the only one that has potential to be a good game although with the 'hawks barely squeaking by this weekend, that may not be the case either. The Broncos are a 1000lb gorilla wearing a number 18 jersey..........
