Is this a typical overreaction to Week 1 action? I'm inclined to say no. Not only because KC flopped at home, but also because of some key injuries on defense. 86% of the bets are on Denver, and I won't be shocked if this hits -14 by kickoff.
In Week 1 I assumed that KC would take care of the Titans with solid defense and an offense built around Charles. Neither of those things happened, and now KC enter this one without D Johnson and DeVito - two starters they couldn't afford to lose on D. The depth on this roster just isn't there, and now they face a Broncos team that is better (on paper) than last year.
The best chance KC have at staying within two TDs is if their special teams comes up with huge plays, the defense creates turnovers that lead to points, and Charles/Smith have an A+ game on offense. In reality, the Broncos should win this one comfortably.
NFL Pick: DEN -13.
