Come Week 11, the Chiefs will play their second divisional game against the Denver Broncos, who are one of the best teams in the league with Peyton Manning under center.
Last year, the Chiefs stood up to Manning and Denver's offense. Although Manning threw two touchdown passes, he and the Broncos struggled putting up more points on the scoreboard. But due to Kansas City's ineffective offense, it only tacked on three field goals and lost, 17-9.
Could it be a different story this year with a new and improved offense?
Some of Manning's worst games have come against Kansas City in 2007 and 2010, where he was silenced due to pass rushes from Jared Allen in 2007 and Tamba Hali in 2010.
Now, Manning will need offensive tackles Orlando Franklin and Ryan Clady to step up and block Hali and Justin Houston, which is a tall order.
The Chiefs were blown out in the final game of the season against the Broncos, but this year, expect two competitive games between the two teams.
