The Chiefs took an early lead, and then each subsequent quarter found the Chiefs and Broncos tied. Now, both teams tried their best to give this game away on multiple occasions, but with a late touchdown by Knile Davis, the Chiefs looked like they had a chance to slip out the door with a victory. It was not to be. The Chiefs left too much time on the clock, and the frequent Bane of the Chiefs, Peyton Manning marched the Broncos down the field to tie the game. Then, the unspeakable happened. Instead, I don't know, taking a knee, the Chiefs try a run play with Jamaal Charles. Guys, you know that I love me some Jamaal Charles, but alas, he fumbled the ball, and some dude on the Broncos (I don't really care to say his name.) picked the ball up and ran it in stabbing every Chiefs fan in the stadium and around the world in the heart. We fans deserved better than that. Big ups to Tony Gonzalez though. He is really getting the hang of the reporter gig.
I don't even want to look at my fantasy team, because it was far to Chiefs heavy, and I predict that I will be 0-2 by the end of the week. Including mistakenly picking the Chiefs to win on Thursday night, I end the week with a 10-6 record with my picks. Not bad for week one in total. For those new to page, I pick Thursday night games with the Sunday Games. Fantasy Players, you still have two weeks before the bye weeks begin.

So, those are my picks for the week. Next week my Chiefs take on the Packers. I hope my wounds won't be cut open again witnessing them play on National TV. Until next week,
