The Kansas City Chiefs have claimed Orton off waivers according to many reports. Todd Haley’s offense is very similar to what Denver ran with Orton and will have quite a few secrets to share with Mr. Haley. Kyle Orton will line up against the violent pass-rush of Von and Doom. Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil will have the privilege of pounding Kyle Orton’s face on the first day of 2012. Von Miller has no issues about punishing Orton: "I don't have any love for the other 31 teams. It's here and now. He's on the other team now." As a broncos fan, I cannot wait for this game and the fans will be going wild. It should be a great game with possible playoff spot on the line. It will rip Kyle’s gut out if the Chiefs get smacked around in Denver.
I am from Northern California and will be making the journey to San Diego to hopefully watch the Broncos extend their winning streak to 4 games. I was shocked to hear today that the broncos are 7 point underdogs. I guess that the guys in Vegas still aren’t buying into the Broncos but I am all in on this team. Does the 7 points surprise you at all? Are you ALL IN?
Finally just a few quick points-
The last Broncos loss came at home to the San Diego Chargers. In that game Kyle Orton was benched and Tebow was thrown into the fire in the second half and almost made a comeback.
Tim Tebow has a 5-3 record in the NFL with two of those losses coming from the Chargers.
The Broncos have the 4th ranked run offense in the NFL while the Chargers are ranked 22nd in run defense giving up an average of 124.3 yards a game. We could see Tim throw another 10 passes or so this week.
The Broncos have allowed an average of 15.5 points in their last 4 wins and the pass rush for the Broncos is turning into something special.
My prediction: Denver over San Diego 21-20
Have a good thanksgiving and GO BRONCOS!
