05:47 PM ET 11.18 | The Kansas City Chiefs' undefeated start to the season has come to an end. They fell to the Denver Broncos and their high-powered offense. Quarterback Peyton Manning looked unbothered by his ankle. More incredible was the fact that Kansas City Chiefs, who as of today have the second most sacks in the NFL, didn't sack Peyton Manning once. Maybe that isn't all that impressive. No Chiefs defender even registered a "quarterback hit" stat. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid says that was because they got the ball out quickly, and did it well.

Kansas City may have had a lot of sacks going into that game, but they were piling up on mostly poor/mediocre QBs:

Blaine Gabbert
Tony Romo
Michael Vick
Eli Manning
Ryan Fitzpatrick
Terrelle Pryor
Case Keenum
Jason Campbell
Jeff Tuel

NFC East QBs are the only names that stand out on that list... and the NFC East is terrible this year.

I expected more from KC's defense than what I saw.

KC may have a good record, the fact that they haven't played anyone worth while this year says it all. One of the advantages of being a 2-14 team last year. Yes they have gotten better from last year but they are not what their record shows. They will lose again when Denver goes to KC, heck they may even lose to San Diego this week. Anyhow the game in at home against Denver may be a bit closer but in the end it will still be another loss. Go Broncos!!!

Excellent Denver game plan, it was either a designed run or Peyton got rid of the ball in under 3 seconds on virtually every pass attempt save 2 or 3 times he held the ball for 4-5 seconds.

Not to worry, the Chiefs will get another chance to pressure Peyton in a few weeks.

Good comment, but you failed to mention that Denver hasn't played (beaten) anybody this year, except maybe the Ravens.

Don't forget that Denver has also played 4 teams from the NFC East.

Manning was his usual self, incredible!

November 19, 2013  11:05 AM ET

Hey Oldtimer, the entire AFC West has played the NFC EAST. What can you say the NFC EAST is the weakest division in football this year based on record. So what is your point? Denver still wins the AFC and the road to the Super Bowl will go through Denver.

One thing I don't understand is why so many people are down on the Chiefs defense. They contained a QB that is averaging 43 points and held him to 27. If there was an expectation of doing more than that, it was irrational.

The Chiefs needed to have an offensive game plan that would deliver 30 points. Romo was able to put up 48 points on that defense.

DO you really think anyone would trust ol Andy to delver a pizza ? The empty box may make it if the sauce didn't run too much.
