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:
|1||9:18||SD 20||DEN 8||3||0|
|2||13:15||SD 29||SD 32||0||0|
|2||11:04||SD 41||DEN 22||3||0|
|2||6:38||SD 20||DEN 19||0||0|
|3||11:34||SD 20||SD 29||0||0|
|3||9:30||DEN 11||DEN 0||7||0|
|3||6:22||SD 20||SD 37||0||0|
|3||0:29||SD 40||DEN 0||7||0|
|4||6:43||SD 20||SD 39||0||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:
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!
