2015 NFL Season Week 2 Thursday Night Game – NFLThursday, September 17, 2015 10:00
NFL Week 2 Thursday Night Game pick and analysis.
NFL WEEK TWO
GAME OF THE WEEK 0-0-1
Denver Broncos @ Kansas City Chiefs -3 (42)
The punditocracy is fawning over the Denver defense after they held the Ravens 173 yards and 13 points in Week One. Thing is, the Broncos enjoy the NFL’s home opener record winning 42 out of their last 56 home openers.
Why? They also enjoy a discernable competitive advantage courtesy of Mother Nature. I lived in Denver for eight years and, more than once, visitors noticed they were short of breath upon exertion…It only lasted a week at most and then disappeared.
Some finely tuned athletes may actually have more acute reactions and become fatigued more easily. Others observe no effect at all. Typically, altitude has been a dilemma for NFL coaches and a happy circumstance for the Broncos’ faithful.
As usual, Baltimore’s offense lacks punch and Joe’s Flacco is overrated as a QB. Denver has talent on “D” but so do the Chiefs—and their pass rush will torment the fading Peyton Manning.
Archie’s son has been throwing around more ducks than a crazed Peking chef.
The Chiefs are my pick to win the Lombardi this year and they start tonight at home with a convincing win over Denver—Under the number…
Chiefs 24 Broncos 13
