We're a couple of MHR's short, so I'll kind of leave it up to you how you want to match up, although Trogdoor's offered to take the photo/tag plunge regardless just because he's a good guy.

Results from Week 1

I broke down the Chiefs drive chart vs the Bills here, so I won't belabor that. Here's the drive chart for the Broncos and Chargers:

Qtr Time Start End Yards Result Pts TO
1 15:00 SD 20 50 30 Punt 0 0
1 9:18 SD 20 DEN 8 72 Field Goal 3 0
2 13:15 SD 29 SD 32 3 Punt 0 0
2 11:04 SD 41 DEN 22 37 Field Goal 3 0
2 6:38 SD 20 DEN 19 61 Missed FG 0 0
3 11:34 SD 20 SD 29 29 Punt 0 0
3 9:30 DEN 11 DEN 0 11 Touchdown 7 0
3 6:22 SD 20 SD 37 17 Punt 0 0
3 0:29 SD 40 DEN 0 60 Touchdown 7 0
4 6:43 SD 20 SD 39 19 Punt 0 0
Totals 339 20 0

First impressions from a Bronco perspective: Not bad. Yards were decent considering we were on the road against Phillip Rivers. Points were acceptable. The lack of forced turnovers were definitely a concern, though. That metric is definitely favoring the opportunistic Chiefs D.

So, after Week 1 of the challenge, things look like this:

Chiefs Broncos
Opp Poss Yards Pts TO's Opp Poss Yards Pts TO's
Week 1 @BUF 11 469 -1 5 @SD 10 339 20 0
TOTALS 11 469 -1 5 10 339 20 0
Averages 42.64 -0.09 45% 33.90 2.00 0%

Broncos winning yards (33.90 per possession to 42.64)

Chiefs winning points (-0.09 per possession to 2.00)

Chiefs winning turnovers (45% of possessions to 0%)

I don't know about any of the rest of you, but I'm kind of looking forward to Sunday!
