WR Nick Miller Brandon Flowers will play. Matt Cassel is now cleared to start. Keys to the game for the Chiefs: –Avoid three and outs-The Chiefs forced their defense to play football for 40 minutes. And that defense still gave the Chiefs an opportunity to win the game, which shows you how big of an asset they can be. –Protect the QB-Give Matt Cassel time. Other than the final drive of the game, the Chiefs only gave up one sack. This defensive line is going to challenge the Chiefs. Tight end Brad Cottam won’t play. Therefore, tight end Sean Ryan and fullback Mike Cox will need to step up and be the extra key blocker incase Greg Ellis or Richard Seymour get through our offensive line. –Stop the run-The Raiders have Darren McFadden and Michael Bush running the ball. With Justin Fargas, they ran for 300 rushing yards against Kansas City in week two’s home opener for the Chiefs. The Chiefs 3-4 defense will be tested. If they can stop the run, they will have to rely on Jamarcus Russell. Oh, don’t forget, Brandon Flowers is back today. So the Raiders will need Russell to be mistake free. Lets see how that goes. I’m picking Kansas City to win this game 20-17.

Chiefs/Broncos pregame

The Chiefs have another tough task ahead of them. After being one of the best NFL teams at home in the month of December, they’ve lost every December home game since 2007. They hope to change that today against the Denver Broncos.

Despite the ugly performance as of late, this shouldn’t be a tough game for Denver. Matt Cassel’s biggest weakness has been identified since he made his debut with the Chiefs in week two. He even had this issue with the Patriots offensive line when leading all quarterbacks for most times sacked in 2008. Elvis Dumervil is leading the NFL with 14 sacks and three forced fumbles under his belt. Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels will not only use Dumervil, but a couple other big guys to apply pressure on Cassel. The Broncos rank number five in the NFL in total defense, pass defense and points allowed. However, if the Chiefs want any chance in pulling the upset, they’ll have to rely on their newest, no longer known as, secret weapon.

Keys to the game:

1. Keep feeding the ball to Charles: In last weeks humiliation to the Chargers, Jamaal Charles was the only bright spot in this football game. Despite fumbling the football early in the game, Charles had 147 total yards of offense off of 17 touches with one rushing touchdown. The Broncos are ranked 17th against the run, giving the Chiefs a big advantage. Kolby Smith has been placed on the IR and Dantrell Savage is out for the game. This gives Charles a chance to shine again.

2. Don’t allow 40+ yard plays: The Chiefs defense leads the NFL for giving up the most passing plays with more than 40 yards or more. They have a total of 16 with the rushing game added on. This is a sarcastic comment, but a the same time, the Chiefs may need to strongly consider it: If they need to, have a defensive back 40 yards away from the line of scrimmage, that way they don’t give up many plays. But who knows, that idea might always get busted as well, just with the way the defense is playing.

I’m picking Denver to win this game. Hopefully Kansas City can pull the upset. The Denver offense may struggle, but it’ll be their defense that comes through. 21-14.

Inactives for the Chiefs: CB Donald Washington, RB Dantrell Savage, G Andy Alleman, LB Justin Rogers, WR Mark Bradley, TE Jake O’Connell and LB Pierre Walters. The inactive third quarterback is Matt Gutierrez.

Inactives for the Broncos: WR Kenny McKinley, RB LaMont Jordan, G Seth Olsen, T Brandon Gorin, DL Chris Baker, WR Brandon Lloyd and DE Jarvis Moss. The inactive third
quarterback is Tom Bradstater.
