Week 13: vs Denver Broncos

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Back in Week 2, Alex Smith was adhering to the same game plan we've seen all year, with a conservative passing attack (26/42 for 255 yards passing, zero TDs and zero interceptions thrown) that rarely goes to the wide receivers. Not much has changed for the Chiefs since Week 2 - their wide receivers have zero TDs this season as a group. Last week, K.C. was down 3-14 at the half and they had to let Smith off the leash a tad - he finished the game with 20/36 for 234 yards passing, with two passing scores and zero interceptions thrown (two sacks taken for -17 yards) - he found Jamaal Charles (seven targets for 4/42/1 receiving) and Anthony Fasano (two for 2/30/1 receiving) for the TDs, and Fasano's book-end tight end Travis Kelce (five for 4/67/0) actually led the team in receiving yards. Dwayne Bowe did get in the mix with five targets for 3/42/0, but as usual no wide receivers managed a TD catch. The Bronco's pass D is ranked 15th in the NFL in terms of net yards allowed per game (240.5), but they average two passing scores allowed per contest, with 22 handed out over 11 games played. Denver does have 11 interceptions (tied for 11th in the NFL) and 28 sacks (tied for ninth in the NFL) - on balance this is an above-average but not elite pass D. Ryan Tannehill threw 26/36 for 216 net yards, three TDs and one interception at Denver last week (one sack taken for -12 yards); Shaun Hill threw 20/29 for 206 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions thrown two weeks ago, with three sacks taken for -14 yards. Smith is in a hum-drum passing scheme, while the Broncos operate a so-so pass D - this looks like a neutral matchup for the home-team Chiefs.
